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


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.
