The frames were designed by Michael Abel of Melbourne and hand built by Master frame builder Wayne Roberts in the factory at Holden Hill, a suburb of Adelaide in South Australia. The 7005 aluminium Ciombola models were imported from builders in Asia as blank frames and painted in the Adelaide factory.

Following the retirement of Roberts from full-time frame-building, the Ciombola designer and owner closed down operations in 2005. The frames made by Wayne Roberts under the Ciombola marque have since become collectibles.
