Wired on caffeine. And I just don't like Pinarellos. I appreciate they are a great bike, but curvy fork and stays is IMO heading towards tango territory.

Put boras on one though, and it would be pretty hard to make it look bad.

Doubtful.

It's a nice bike. Great parts, wrong colours. I'm sure it rides very very well.



Have to agree, there seems to be no 'flow' to the setup almost as though parts were around and so put on a bike - gold chain/chainrings doesnt look 'smooth', or as though it was part of what should have been there. Same goes for the silver stem.

If I was, I wouldn't own a bike, I'd probably have sold it.

Coming soon to a forum near you: "I was just riding along when my steerer snapped for no reason!!!"

Where did that thing come from?! That is just painful to look at. I pity the person who rides it. Has that bike ever seen the inside of a bike shop, i.e. been seen by a "professional" mechanic ? I hope not... wouldn't speak well for their abilities as one!

Who wants to guess how many spacers are on there ? Or better yet, start counting! One, two, three...

The Tango always reminds me of a Shrinkydink that was pulled out of the oven a bit too early. Did someone say that their dealer doesn't have a problem selling them? I can't remember ever seeing one in public. In fact a dealer friend of mine sent his back...

From a company that used to make such beautiful bikes, with this offering I think De Rosa have lost the plot.

Oh, and I'm not a fan of the curvy stays & fork.


Curvy stays make sense if you want some vertical compliance: they won't give much if they're straight, unless they break.

Curvy forks otoh... :roll:
