Della Santa

To all,

Six months ago I had my Della Santa repainted and finally it is done.

https://forums.thepaceline.net/showthread.php?t=228019

Color: Yellow, painted by Jim Allen. (This color is known as DS Yellow)
Size: 51cm C-C
Top Tube: 54cm C-C
Fork: Columbus Minimal, one inch.
Group: Campagnolo Chorus 11s, long cage RD with 11x32 cassette.
Wheels: Campagnolo Eurus.
Tires: VeloFlex Master 28c.
Seatpost: Campagnolo Chorus Carbon.
Stem: Ritchey C260 100mm painted to match.
Frame pump: Silca with Campagnolo pump head.
Pedals: Shimano Dura Ace 7900.
Bottle Cages: King Stainless Steel.
Weight: 17.1 pounds as seen.

I want to take some pictures before I get it dirty. This time I went with Columbus Minimal fork on this frame, I still have the steel fork Roland made.

Lastly, I want to say Thank you to Matt at Red Lantern Cycles in Menlo Park for putting this together.

Very well done and every bike that I’ve seen from Roland looks like it’s just begging to be ridden.

Well that is just really pretty.

Nice details all around and excellent build spec.

Was that brake cable placed there because the frame pump was pre-planned?

Curious how that fork rides as well.

Congrats!

Hello, I had Roland moved the brake cable routing 6 years ago because for the following reasons.

1. I was using my right hand for front brake, making the routing on top makes it easier for the left hand cable routing.
2. Regardless of which hand I use for braking, I found for my small frame size the routing to the rear brake has less bend coming from the top.
