Two awesome bikes your going to have. The problem now will be what one to ride.
What do you think the final weight will be.!!!

That is lovely. I am a big De Rosa fan (unfortunately only have the one at the moment!) and the C60 is probably the only non De Rosa I am lusting after currently. Impeccable taste.

Once it is all done I would love to hear your impressions comparing the two. I think I will go for the Pininfarina SK (had an SK 888 SR previously and foolishly sold it) purely on looks but would love a C60 if I could justify it and the King XS is a lovely understated thing. :beerchug:

It's very close to the weight of a painted supersix evo himod and it is Italian! How about that...

My solution is to remove the plate guide for mechanical cable and do a custom plate cover.

Love the color of this frame.

De Rosa and Campagnolo are a perfect combination. Cant wait to see the final product.

Lovely already

I know this is a 51cm but can you tell us your dimensions....height etc.???? Would be interesting to me as I am interested in this frame but right on the border between sizes.

Thanks and also looking forward to completed pics......and a ride review would be awesome too
