Ugo De Rosa is certainly one of the best frame builders of all time. Not only did he supply many champions with his high-end bicycles (Gianni Motta, Eddy Merckx and Francesco Moser, just to name a few).
He simply manufactured masterpieces and through them strongly influenced the cycling industry. In his dominant years of the 1970s, his top model was the De Rosa Strada Record the later versions of which are often also referred to as the De Rosa Super Prestige, later followed by the Professional and finally by the De Rosa Primato.
The De Rosa Primato certainly is one of the greatest steel bikes. With its light Columbus EL (=Extra Light) steel tubeset and classy Diamante chainstays it is fit for competitive racing. The frame has been refurbished and received the typical Team Sammontana paintjob.
It is equipped with high class Campagnolo components like C-Record or Chorus. Certainly worth mentioning are also the beutiful Campagnolo Croce d'aune Delta brakes, pantographed stem, original Turbo saddle or the original Vittoria Pro-Team clincher tires.A captivating bike which offer not just iconic looks but a sweet ride as well.
