Hi Folks-
I have this Della Santa that is a hair too small for me @ 55cm square.

I've got it setup as an SS right now but don't ride it much and haven't since I purchased it with a new Joe Bell paint job.

Hoping for $950 F/F/HS

Thanks,
Zac in El Cerrito

Tubing? Spacing?

Tubing? Spacing?

I don't know what the tubing is. Spacing is 130mm.

Just give Roland a call.

He helped me sort mine when I bought it.

Beautiful frame btw.

Tubing is Dedacciai Zero with the "baseball bat" downtube where is grows in diameter from the head tube to the BB.

Super nice tubing. Stiff where it needs to be and resilient where it doesn't.

Road geo, not CX, right?

Yep. Been hunting for a fat tire Della Santa for a minute.

Road geo, not CX, right?

Because he is also making the fork, the FRAME might have "road geo" but because of the fork specs is will handle as it should, like a "cx" bike.

This is extremely common for smaller (54 and under) lugged cx frames because the HT/TT and particularly the DT/HT angles end up being too severe to work with existing cast lug angles.

Being at work I am checking this on my phone and I can't tell from the pics if the frame has eyelets for fenders. Anyone?

Does this "big tire road bike" have the same geometry as a cx bike? Is the major difference between the two the bottom bracket height, i.e., cx bikes have higher bb height for more clearance?

I wonder if there is a geometry chart for this bike? Would DS have it?

Good Luck!

Doesn't look like there are any eyelets. But I do see the hole for a rear derailleur on the rear dropout hanger!

Good Luck!

Small correction .... the paint was done by D & D Cycles (Rick Stefani).

I was the previous owner and had it repainrted. It is beautiful and I wish it were smaller - I'd buy it back.

The color is Dupont Imron F0901 with red accents in the cutouts to match the color of the decals.

The BB shell should be stamped DZ 55 indicating it is Dedacciai Zero and 55 c-t-c.

No fender euelets, but there is in fact a derailleur hanger as part of the forged rear dropout.
