Sweet bike. Is that a tiny rear light integrated into/affixed to the seatmast?

Thanks guys.

There is no integrated light in the seatpost. It is just the titanium bolt that fixes the internal stubby of the ISP. The seatpost design is used by De Rosa and I think some Casatis have it too. Not particularly clever since it requires a dead center hole in the back of the extended seat tube through which a screw clamps the internal stubby. However, it doesn't require an external stubby and I love the looks. It is just very important to get that hole right :D

I took those pictures since the frame will be sold in a few weeks to move the parts over to a new project. Unfortunately it takes time to take good pictures so I rarely do that.

The last picture is perfect framing. I agree that the stem is the crown jewel, and it fits perfectly with the top tube.

Not enough De Rosa bikes on this forum.

I love it. And great weight for what is not a particularly light frame, IIRC.
