    2012 De Rosa models

    Anyone else see the 'new' model for 2012, a Nuovo Classico? Lugged steel, flat fork crown, but I cant find any info on it. The De Rosa site has a picture, no description. I found a Taiwanese site with a few more pictures, but no info.

    Anyone know anything about it?

    Interesting! I wonder what the tubing will be. There's nothing better than classic Italian geometry with newer steel and parts.

    I like it but no, I have no knowledge of what the tubing might be, maybe that 2009 SL stuff?

    Pretty sure stems and saddles are personal choices.

    Those can be changed out easily enough. Though you'll probably need a headset, too.

    They have chrome lugged, steel road bikes by Trek at your LBS?

    Lucky man/woman.

    I never cared for Treks, though I hear they make good bikes.

    Trek makes a lugged steel frame with chromed headlugs and De Rosa geometry? Which model would that be? Is it similar to their "Peterson" model featuring lugs with wing dings and triple chain stays with room for car rims?

    I took the daring move of emailing DeRosa for information.

    The new Nuovo Classico is a very attractive road bike, and I'll enjoy hearing more about it.

    BBM - I can't view photos at work, but if that's a "Bob" reference, you are my hero.

    The scary thing is they actually return emails to me.

    What a concept.
