Sweet ride! You're not

Sweet ride! You're not sliding forward off your saddle? I just got a flite on my Epic and noticed that with a slightly forward leaning angle I start to slide 'down', resulting on pressure on the handlebars. Now it's much more comfy

Perhaps your right. It's

Perhaps your right. It's comfortable, but I always get called up on my saddle angle. I would give it a fine tuning but have ball bearings glued into all the Allen bolts.

You lock this on the street?

Even with the ball bearing trick and a 14 pound Kryptonite lock, that bike wouldn't last 10 minutes in NYC.

Wow, nice!

Nice De Rosa.

Gorgeous bike,

i hope to one day aquire a de rosa in my size, nothing wrong with DA on an Italian frame. My pinarello is built with 7400/7410 parts.

But I do agree that this one should be built up with campy, only cause it has campy stickers on it. That's like driving a lamborghini and having a toyota engine under the hood.

awesome bike though!

lol, so much Dura Ace

lol, so much Dura Ace hating. Here is my dream bike.

and here is a nice webpage about Shimano vs Campy


nice bike. DA7400 is nice, really nice. You taken off the campy stuff?? Why? I'm taking the DA off my Bottecchia and putting on campy chorus, and the DA will go on the Eddy (more appropriate). Otherwise, nice bike.

Thanks Boja. I purchased the frame only, Never had the Campagnolo group. Got the Dura Ace from an 82 Condor bicycle and needed to find it a good home. Love the bolt-less stem design. Im not sure why, but I prefer Dura Ace on this build, feels solid to cycle and less painfully classic (although I might call it the identity crisis de rosa as it is plastered with campy stickers :)

dura ace 7400 forever
