That is gonig to be a great thread!

I would like some feedback about these bikes. We know they look great, have a proven geometry, but how do they really ride?

Thats because they break easily and no one wants to show the broken frames ;-0

That's some serious slope gradient.

Traditional geometry + Super Record + Boras. Doesn't get much better than that!

nice. If they break they do it in style so who cares. Very pretty bikes. I want to ride that climb sounds similar to the nastiness of Osomarso to momarno in calibra but worse!

It's not exactly a match for Angliru but it is a De Rosa.....riding through Adelaide Hills. Lots of drop bears and hoop snakes around at present now that it is spring which increases the challenge.

I'm a real fan of the original generation of Italian bicycle artists - Ugo De Rosa, Giovanni Pinarello and Cino Cinelli - accordingly my De Rosa is a restored '83 De Rosa SL Professional frame (from Ugo's golden era when the famous De Rosa geometry had been locked in) with a 2014 Campy Athena retro build. Rides and handles beautifully - the photos below are of the original build

LOVE these DeRosas! Sublime!
I'd love a thorough, unbiased ride report on them!
The first bike I lusted after, when my obsession with bicycles started was a DeRos with Campagnolo Nuovo Record in 1985. the classic Athena build is just stunning. perfect.

I have two set-ups for my steel DeRosa Neo Primato:
1) black and brown with Farsports carbon 38 mm wheels - weight 7.9 kg
2) white and silver with Campagnolo Zonda wheels - weight 8.2 kg

Which one do you like? =)
