    King 3

    Hello all,

    Love or hate the team, I fell in love with the original paint De Rosa did for Rock Racing, and have looked for an ex team frame since then... and finally have one and it's built!

    It's 6.6kg with pedals and garmin 500. Well chuffed. Just had a quick ride to test him out (he's called Ugo, of course) and it's just a beautiful ride, even in the wind.

    Carbon spacers on order and a bike fit due, before you ask about the steerer!

    edit- pics were here, but crikey, i may not bother as i need even more posts to share them...

    The looks great! I'm also thinking of finding a King 3 in white. Sounds like you like it

    thanks Siena- I think the white looks very good on them- good luck with your search. It's early days with my first superbike but i am enjoying it very much. Definitely recommended!

    But you can only use Campagnolo on an Italian bike!
