Fairly sure this is not a 2003 frame as the tech specs say it would be TrueTemper OX and 4130 mix with normal dropouts (ritchey).
It's not an earlier one,
now from a look through the sites
2004,2005 no explosif
2006 best guess http://www.klassickona.com/oldgold/2006/explosif.htm
2007, 2008, 2009 again no explosif
2010 has one
2011 again no explosif
Unless i'm missing them :s

2005 frame I believe, 2003/2004 used True Temper OX tubing, 2006 used the Dedacciai tubing in a different colour

Here's another 2005 I found

Looks really nice, shame it's not a 17 or 18 or I'd have it.

I like the Curve brake lever running the mechanical rear disc brake on the bike in the photo above, nice touch.

He's not joking, he woke me up from a nice afternoon nap to find out if this would fit or not :shock:

Here's the bike, annoying me by casually leaning against my bedroom wall...
