Wow, quite the looker! Nice lines accentuated by the low stack stem.

What a harmony of TT/stem. NICE!
I do remember Madonna wearing a T-shirt with "Italians do it better".

Super nice! One of the most elegant and sexy frames currently available IMHO.
Give us a review please (I have only heard positive comments on this frame).

thanks!

just went out for my first ride yesterday. In general it feels quite similar to my old s-works tarmac SL4. Stiff, agile, front a bit hard. Hope to be able to tell you more soon. paint looks great!
The frame itself is no lightweight (1040g in size 58), but i guess paint is an extra of 150g at least

That certainly is lovely, I love the profiles of the head tube and both sets of wheels look well balanced.

nice :thumbup:

Very very nice! Nice and clean lines and I really appreciate a well thought out internal cabling entry points. It looks very clean. I hate seeing internally cabled bikes where the cables enter the top tube and/or downtube about a 1/3rd of a way down. Enjoy it!

Like it a lot!

Such a good mix between modern stealthy look, classy geo and smooth Italian lines!

Great to see another Diamante out there. Mine is the 2014 model in white/red. I absolutely love it. Yours looks magnificent; perfect build.

Basso really nailed it with their Diamante and the 2015 iteration of the Astra model.
