    De Rosa Neo Primato (WARNING: lots of hi-res pic)

    After seeing these images from this post Modern Classic - my new De Rosa (warning: large pics)



    I fall in love with my De Rosa all over again. Here's mine:

    2004 De Rosa Neo Primato lugged steel frame, carbon fork
    Chris King headset
    2006 Campy Record group
    2005 Campy Eurus wheel
    Cinelli RAM bar and seatpost
    Fizik Arione saddle
    Keo carbon pedal
    Tufo CS33 Special tubular clincher






    me and my team mate, who also has a Neo Primato, but with different setup

    I was searching over your pics to find something about you bike that wasn't perfect...

    And I couldn't spot anything!

    Amazing.

    Eh, you've seen one bike, you've seen them all.


    j/k

    Nice ride. How do you like the Arione Saddle? I have one, and it seemed pretty comfy, but I also got a saddle sore from it so haven't tried it a second time. Middle seems too high or something.

    I'll bet that baby rides smooth as silk.

    I absolutelty love how you went with the brown sidewalled Tufos to give it that retro look, even though it's a modern tire.

    BRAVO!!!!!

    Yeah, the aesthetic is a dynamic hybridization of old and new school cyclophilia as flawlessly executed in materials, colors, line and place of manufacture.

    Very nice indeed!

    Oh, oh...wait a minute. Your valve stems aren't lined up for the pics, gotta take points off.

    Nice bike!.. love the burnt orange and World Champs colors...reminds me of an Eddy Merckx paint job.

    +1,000 OCP points for matching kits.

    BTW, How do you like your Las helmet? Does the air scoop really work in keeping you cool?

    Just a personal opinion, but I don't hink the aero seat post, and the one piece carbon bars match well aesthetically with the lugged steel frame. My taste would run to the first bike.

    I was going to make this observation as well but I don't think the seat is too forward it's just that you have a set back seat post when it's probably not needed.

    Ok aside from that I love it! I was real close to getting a Neo Primato till I just settled on something else. That is a beautiful machine and I am sure she rides like a dream.

    Great looking bike. Your friend needs to lose the blue bartape, doesn't match his bike.

    I agree, the cinelli ram bar and post don't match well with lugged steel, but I just love the RAM bar so much, it's so comfortable. Just use the RAM post to match with the bar.

    I enjoy riding this steel bike alot, enjoy it so much that sometimes I race and do century on it.

    +1. A steel bike says retro but carbon doesn't. Nice jerseys though.

    Not really, she was looking for a parking spot.

    I'm sure it doesn't matter as long as the saddle position fits.
