Identify year of aluminum/carbon cramerotti

Hi all,

Would anyone familiar with cramerotti bikes be able to estimate what year this bike was made? Aluminum frame, carbon fork, carbon stays.

Apologies as this is the only image from the seller, the bike has an 6500 ultegra group, no information on the hubs. The model name "lampo" is stickered on the top tube.

They're still in business in Vancouver so you could ask them. I had a '96 EL-OS Cramerotti with Chorus 8 speed group that was light and fast but harsh so I swapped it for an 84 Marinoni SL with Record with and never regretted it.

Totally different era of bike from yours of course. Your components could help you narrow down the date.

I am gonna guess mid-00's. Looks like you have Ultegra 6500 there, but provide us with part numbers of your crank and your rear derailleur and we can hone in closer. And post a driveside pic!

I think Clubman's suggestion to contact Cramerotti is good. A lot of smaller manufacturers will respond with info about their bikes. Include the serial number in your communication to them.

Shimano Ultegra 6500, if OEM, places it 1998-2004. Alumimun fames with carbon fibre stays started appearing circa 1998, with Pinarello's Prince model establishing the trend. However, the hidden/integral headsets, as seen on the Cramerotti, weren't introduced until a few years later, circa 2001. So, I'd place this circa 2001-2004.

Since it's likely original just look at the date code on the back of the crank arms. I would say 2002 model with 2001 parts.

I built a fabulous Camerotti CycloCross bike for a customer once. It was one of there rare builds where the customer tells you what he's looking for but you pretty much get to build it. Apparently I did such a fabulous job he later gifted me. Fuji Professional Super Record sans wheels. Wish I had a pic of his bike
