    Every time I see a Della Santa, I start pining away for one, and I have contacted Roland at a couple different times in the past "kicking the tires" so to speak. I find his work so aesthetically pleasing. This frame, plus Don Walker's white one may be more than I can take. I'm going to have to pull the trigger now.

    I got the fever to do a steel frame two or three years ago after riding some of my vintage stuff. After doing some research I had Roland built it for me. I wanted an old school frame, but with all modern pieces on it. The bike is a jewel and the experience of working with Roland was easy: no cell phone, no emails...just chat on the phone and mail things! I got the bike in short order (when he promised it) and it was perfect.

    I am blessed with several very nice bikes, but this is the one that gets the most compliments when I ride it.

    Roland knows a thing or two about bikes. My pal in Reno just finished this build with the man last night. Nice fixed gear roadie in orange. Too bad about the hubs...

    Roland certainly deserves his time in the spot light. He got my vote to build my first custom frame. Here is a picture of it's first build but since then it has gone retro.

    Thanks for the kind comments on the celeste color choice.

    When I was having the bike built I just could not decide as there are some many great combos. My wife reminded me how much I liked the vintage Bianchis...and...voila...the simple monochromatic color scheme you see. Jim Allen did it in the 60's Bianchi celeste.

    I took "review" out of the title for consistency. These bikes are awesome. . . I had one for a bit and gave it to my brother. Timeless, and if you're only going to have one bike it's hard to beat.

    Talk to Roland Della Santa yesterday, turns out he has all kinds of NOS tubes (SL, SP, 531...), all kinds of fitting to make anyone happy here and elsewhere. Roland is very easy to work with, and his wait time is short too.
