6,780g as pictured

- made to measure Titanium frame
- track geometry with steeper angles and more elevated bottom bracket but fitted for brakes
- Doriano De Rosa signature under clear coat on the seat tube - this should be the only out there with that signature
- Relabeled Reynolds rims - the real Pistas are not made for braking and too heavy

Wow. Thanks for the detail shots!

This is beautiful craftsmanship (had no doubts about it). Thanks for the update and best wishes in the New Year!

Not normally my style but I love Record cranks, love Campy Pista's, live De Rosa's, and sure the heck can't argue with Ti!

This is beautiful .

Nice detailed paintwork beyond the clear coat. Can you take some detail shots of the seat cluster and the headtube? as I'd love to see the Ti welding craftmanship of DeRosa..? (You don't see these everyday!)
Really, this is a joy to look at and you are lucky to own/ride this (among your other nice bikes). Thanks for sharin

I will try to post some

I will try to post some close ups once I have time.

always funny to see 5000$+

always funny to see 5000$+ single speed rides with chain slack

enjoy !

Hehe, it was just built up

Hehe, it was just built up in my living room and I'm waiting for the White Industries Freewheel hub. Once that is installed there won't be any chain slack...


Titanium makes me drool.

pista wheelset

I love your bike but why are you using this wheelset with brakes?

I'm also curious

I'm also curious, if a singlespeed/track bike was my intention I would rather an equally blinged out wheelset with a machined aluminum braking surface.

I just love the look of the

I just love the look of the Pistas. Since this is an all Italian (except for the French pedals...) single speed it is the perfect wheelset. Plus: super solid and stiff and if you use the black Swisstops the black won't wear off the braking surface. Braking quality is fine, too.

Needless to say that you could get far lighter wheelsets, this set is 2.1 kg without tubulars and track nuts. Doesn't matter though, this bike is not about being lightweight.

Most curious about the state

Most curious about the state of your Pista wheelset one year later. Did the swissstop rubber really save them from brake wear?

No brake wear

Yep, you can also use the standard Campagnolo Brake Pads. The rims are still as black as new.

Holy fuck!

I can't even imagine what that frame must have cost...

f I remember correctly the

f I remember correctly the titanium frames run close to $ 4700
