Weird that he wants more for the SLX - I think the Primato is the more valuable of the two, size not considered.

It looks like that one is priced as a complete bike

They are drop dead gorgeous bicycles.

I've been tempted by De Rosa Pistas, but ultimately I wouldn't ride one that often.

I don't have enough healthy tissue in my left knee to do it, and I can't imagine dragging one out to the local paths.

..nor the Velodrome for that matter.

Last time I did that I ended up having fluid drained from my knee.

They'd make fabulous wall hangers for me, but I've got one or two of those already.

Is the fork on the red one original to the frame? What about the bars on it, they don't seem to be pista bars. Is the fork drilled for a brake?
