Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Don't you wish Campy shifters came in white? Throw in a nice white seat post and you'd be set. Nice ride BTW.

Other than admiring your very sweet new DeRosa, that caught my eye as well.

I think the black seatpost and shifters balance each other nicely. I wouldl have even gone with a black stem. I do think the lower fork should be red but overall a very nice color scheme.

Since I am sorta partial to steel, I intended to order the Neoprimato, but after trying out the Team I was surprised to find that I liked it better, so I went with it. Did you check out anything besides your steel Corum?

Long cage to allow use of a cassette with larger cogs in the rear. Say he wanted to run an MTB cassette in 11-34 for example...
