    Default 80s De Rosa Team Sammontana

    While poking around in the classifieds thread I stumbled upon this De Rosa frameset.
    After a few inquiries it became mine.
    I purchased it from a very nice forumite across the hall.
    It has the iconic Sammontana team paint and looks killer.
    I'm thinking this is an '83 De Rosa Professional.
    The lugs look right and the sloping fork crown is consistent with that year.
    I have not received it yet and only have a bunch of photos but some friends have questioned the authenticity of the paint.
    We seem to think it's original but there are a few over spray areas that might prove this is a repaint.
    This frame is an odd bird because most of these seemed to have chrome forks and chain stays.
    It only has one set of bottle cage bosses.
    The "Made In Italy" decal was initially a red flag but I have seen it on a few other 83 Professional frames.
    I thought it might have been added later but the chevrons match the De Rosa chevrons.
    I'm thinking this frame was made for export to the U.S. and might have been sprayed here much like Torelli does.
    Back then dealers like Ten Speed Drive Imports would paint them to order hence the "crappy 80s italian paint" problems.

    Either way I'm stoked for this one. It's an old school Columbus SL De Rosa in fantastic shape and I got for a very nice price... Thanks Bob.

    Build pics soon...

    The frame arrived last week, looks great. It's a really nice glossy black and looks legit to me.
    I'm waiting on a few bits to arrive and should have a build pic in the next week or so.

    I finally collected all of the parts and sorted the build out.
    Hoping to have build pics tomorrow.
    It just needs cables and a few tweaks.

    A quick build pic as promised..
    It's kind of anti-climactic posting after those killer Gaulzettis up above but still a sweet ride.
    Looking good and pretty much dialed in.
    I only took a quick spin around the 'hood but it feels real good.
    It's surprisingly not too heavy as built and rides with a nice nimble feel.
    I'm planning to put on some real road miles this weekend.

    This bike is a blast to ride.
    I made a few component updates and am really digging the modern/retro look here.

    Pretty cool.

    Agreed. Latest version of this bill hits the aesthetic nail on the head.

    The De Rosa has treated me really well the past 6 months. From coffee shop rides to wicked fast hammah fests, it has not held me back at all. Riding this bike has fueled a new interest in steel bikes amongst my Rapha club mates and several have recently built up semi retro builds like a Lemond Buenos aires, Bianchi trofeo, and a ciocc. Through the Rapha club, I am planning a steel appreciation ride in july.

    I have been enjoying my quiet solo rides on car free streets. Miss my club mates, and feel a bit upset as they continue to participate in group rides, but we can only make our own decisions.

    Thought I'd pull the Primato EL-OS out of the mothballs. Gave it a tune up and a tire change and was expecting an easy sunday evening stroll... turned into a serious ride after adjusting to for couple of kms. A serious and capable bike. Also nice to use 8-speed Record again.
    It got me thinking about getting some lighter wheels for it. These 36 hole wheels sure don't spin up as nicely as the stuff I'm used to. But then again, I might keep it classic an period correct. Adds to the charm. I do want to try 28s, fit easily in this frame.

    That is a great bike. And a terrific color!

    Getting 8spd and 28h is a bit unicornish. And those wheels are immaculate so maybe think of it as a bit of extra legwork.
