Very well done. Quite Beautiful. Do you know frame weight?
How is the ride? Is that stem custom paint?
Did you think of getting the dark label zipp decals for the wheels?

No to frameweight. De Rosa themselves say something like 850grams
Really forgiving and actually quite comfortable, more than I was expecting. Still stiff as a motherf...er when you need it. But then again I've only done 100km so far on it..
Sort of. The stem, seatpost and handlebars are specially made from De Rosa to suit every framecolour. The originals is FSA K-Force.
Nah, just leaving it like this for now.


From what I'm told, I'm the only one with a Protos i Giallo Flou with grey De Rosa logo on the downtube. Something I asked for and De Rosa said ok. It's normally in white lettering.

Fantastic frame, but please don't let the crappy i-Links scratch the frame.

Nicely executed! The custom painted stem takes the cake methinks!

oh lordy that is a great looking bike. i've always disliked the De Rosa logo, but that's just the font as the Protos logo looks tops.

colours, spec and overall look is amazing.

It looks great! Just perfect.
I would like to see the DeRosa heart logo on the head tube. Is it sold like that?

Lovely bike. I like the bar, stem and post finish.

Yep. Suits me fine, I'm not the biggest fan of the "De Rosa" font and heart either, so the fewer the better.. I really like how it came out, and it's just some final small adjustments. Such as, I need to sand down the FSA dust-cap on the headset to a matte finish. Give the seat, seat clamp, bottle cage (which I've sanded as well), some matte-laquer. I also need a Tillquist Garmin out front mount. I guess that's pretty much it. Oh, and glue or tape the junction-box to the stem so I can lose the hideous rubber strap... 8)
