Great looking bike! How's it ride? Have you owned one before??

Interesting seat post collar.

Just started following Basso's IG feed and am continually wowed at their aggressive stem and position. Something about the (proprietary?) stem's design above the steerer makes it look all that more aggressive.

Looks fantastic! Perhaps some Boras could be the only improvement I could find. It is perfect otherwise.

Great looking love the eggshell. How do you like the comfort kit. I have a 53 diamanté too in the liquid silver. Don't have the comfort kit on but have it available. Luckily I switched to a power saddle which allows me not get crushed when riding at a lower stack.

So nice. Their stems are drool-worthy! Excellent color, great touch of individuality with the R45 hubs, and super tidy looking. Great build man. Well done!

Wow, simply WOW (in all caps).... These Diamante frames should catch the eye of any affectionado... One question though... Can you choose stem lengths upon purchase of the frame or are they pre-determined by frame size? I tried checking a few sites including R&A and they all don't have any options over stem length.

I would also prefer Bora and I would rotate the bars a few degrees clockwise.

Beautiful! i considered one of these frames when looking for my latest build, but could find very little info on them, so I went with another frame.

Any of the Diamante owners here have any issues with creaking from the comfort headset area?

Wow! My 1991 Basso doesn't look anything like that :). Very nice.
@ianeire: I'm not familiar with Diamantes "comfort headset"... what is unique about it?

Great looking bike, the esthetics of the frame/fork/stem just flow together perfectly and that color suits it well as does the 4 arm campy cranks
