Great looking bike. I wanted to order Protos at the end of 2015 but just couldn't justify 3rd De Rosa.
Now I'm bit sorry that I haven't when it is out 9f production.

They are really easy to deal with and very quick with WR stuff to UK.

Your bars are set up incorrectly :(

Can you elaborate? How are the bars set up incorrectly? What would be the correct way to set up the bars?

"Incorrectly" may be a strong word, since if that's what the OP wants then it's ultimately up to him. But yes, that setup does make my eyes water a bit as well. Looks to me like the OP is striving for a basically flat top and smooth flat transition to the hoods. Those bars are the wrong choice for that. What he's had to do to get that (with those bars) is rotate them upwards and mount the levers much further down the curve than they really should be for that bar. It makes the whole thing look really awkward, at least to me, and apparently to some others as well.
The wheels look quite nice I think.

Nice build project! I have a similar one. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9I7JTNItsiQ&t=30s. The matte white, as you can see. What is it you've heard about paint issues with them? I discussed this at length with my dealer, because I too considered to have mine clear-coated. And his theory was that clear-cote may well be more prone to "chipping".

Nice touch with the red hubs, seat collar and bits. Is that Ugo's signature on the top tube?

Your dealer is right about white clear coat being prone to chipping. I already noticed two on my fork from some rock spray

Very nice bicycle and build, Seedster.
Beautiful stuff.

I have not heard of WR Compositi before reading this thread. I checked out their website. Looks like some nice stems and handlebars made in Italy.
Excellent components; they used to be standard spec on Pegorettis, etc.

My new WR Compositi tubulars are finally built and on their way. The set weighs 1,235g (560g front - 675g rear). The wheels should match the cockpit's matte 3k weave perfectly

Beautiful. 2 good companies.

Seedster has the "Victory" stem. An "ST1" or "ST1 Alpha" stem would not look out of place on a C60. :wink:

Slight hijack, Anyone know if WR sell to the UK or have a dealer? Can't seem to get website to work.
Iirc, PoshBike used to carry WR, but I have no idea what happened to PoshBike. There's a store called Brick Lane Bikes London that looks to have some vintage stuff; I don't know if they also are actually a WR distributor.

WR was down for quite awhile, re-doing the product line, etc., so perhaps they are not yet set up with new international distributors.

In any case, as others have already mentioned CicliCorsa are great to deal with. From Italy, Clemenzo Cycling and bikeonline.it also sell WR, but I believe CicliCorsa is the main retailer.

Thanks Nismosr! I love how aggressively it rides. Just added a powermeter too

I absolutely adore my Protos. My Time RXR still holds a special place in my heart, but Protos is just stunning and makes me smile every time I see it. It’s much stiffer than the RXR, which is likely due to the monstrous BB. Consequently, the power transfer is immediate. I never noticed the RXR’s lag until now. I haven’t done a ride longer than two hours, but it isn’t as harsh as I first expected. The headtube is shorter than my RXR so I always feel like im in a sprinting position. I wouldn’t call it a climbing machine, but I am going to attribute that more to the rider than the bike. Overall, it is a fantastic machine and I am extremely happy with my decision to go for the prior design rather than the new model. With the addition of the SRM and Berk saddle, it’s finally complete.
