Love the new Basso frames and colorways. Would like to know how it compares to the De Rosa SK once you've got some miles on the clock. Also how do you get on with the P1 pedals? I'm seriously thinking about a Diamante as my next bike whenever that my be.

Gorgeous. How does it ride?

I saw one of these in a bike shop only yesterday. Same colour but built with new Dura Ace di2. Looked amazing.

That is one fantastic looking bike and I love the color. I would love to see one in person.

I need to post up the new Astra I built. I've owned or still own a lot of nice bikes and the Basso is one of the very best I've owned and ridden.

That low stack basso stem just does something for me. Beautiful ride.

You have a sweet machine, May I kindly ask how tall are you, and what is a center to top of the saddle lenght? I am highly interested about this frame but are totally in between of sizes :-(

1. I love it - as others have said, the Basso "look" and color schemes are excellent.
2. What is the current weight?
3. Tell us more about the ride quality when you have some kms on it.

And congratulations on the new ride!

That looks great but think it would be perfect with black cages instead.
