DE ROSA Neo Primato, Dedacciai Zero Uno (58cm) – SOLD

Description

Ugo De Rosa, one of the most successful frame builders was born on January 27, 1934 in Milan, Italy. His passion led him to study mechanics and engineering at a technical college. Later in the early 1950s he opened his first shop and commenced the manufacture of racing bicycles. He supplied many champions with his high-end bicycles (Gianni Motta, Eddy Merckx and Francesco Moser…), and also strongly influenced the cycling industry with his amazing bikes from Cusano Milanino.

Here we are offering a classic DE ROSA Neo Primato frameset. The frame is work of art, made of Dedacciai Zero Uno tubing, famous ”Diamante chainstay” and DeRosa marked dropouts. It has both the sought-after feel of steel and the look of the golden era of cycling. In these days of weird-shaped bulging carbon tubes, an elegant, slim frame with classic clean lines suddenly looks beautiful again. For added authenticity, the Neo Primato comes with a steel fork – a rarity on a modern drop-bar bike. No much words needed.

Ready to be build. Fair price.
