WOW, very nice bike! I'm not sure about wheel decals.

Nice one, looks very fresh.
+ for the bottle cage change ;)
Size 64 isn't it misprint?

Thanks everybody for the kind words. Since I discovered them some time ago, the Arundels replaced all other bottle cages I used previously. They are simply the best design and available in all finishes I require.

64 is De Rosa's sizing for frames with an integrated seat post (ISP) and denotes the distance between the center of the bb and the top of the ISP. Since my ISP is 2 cm longer it is actually a 66 but otherwise identical to the 64:

Very beautiful! And for me even more if the wheel decals were not there.

Perfect, really like the set-up with Campy...how does it ride? Is it snappy?
Rode briefly one with a similar set-up...it's one of my favourite frame makers together with Wilier and Colnago (possibly Cipo but the jury is out on that one)...

i do think it would also look great with some low profile wheels ;-)...but the Boras are just unbeatable aesthetically

I have to say this is probably one of the only compact geo frames I like!

That slammed stem and seatpost being part of the frame (my mind has gone, can't remember what it's called) just works really well. I'd love to see this on some super slim climbing wheels.

Really dig this one! I always had a soft spot for DeRosa bikes but wish those top tubes wouldn't slope so much! Enjoy the ride!
