Finally getting myself a Gravel Bike , Frameset was order end of last year when Basso announce the new Palta 2. it will be a budget build and as much as I would like to stay loyal with Campy, this one is not going in the direction, I really don't want to go back to mechanical like their Ekar groupset. and since its a budget build will with SRAM Rival AXS 1x mullet build and Fulcrum Rapid Red 5 Gravel wheelset.

Watching with interest! :D

I was thinking of purchasing this frame. Can you tell me what BB shell it has? Suprisingly Basso doesn't list this info for their bikes.

Also, what do you think of the quality of the frame? How are the faces on the brake mounts? Do they need additional work done on them?

BB86 41mm diameter, keep telling over and over , Basso frames are underrated , quality and finish are what you get from and Italian made, paint job is superb. faces
are clean and smooth.

Looks like quite an aggressive geometry for a gravel frameset! But lovely colour. Looking forward to the progress.

Love the shape of the frame! What's the size? And what seatpost diameter does it take?

NICE. Another great build and kick ass paint scheme. Do you get any headset knocking on any of your bikes?

plenty stiff when you need it .. fast on descent, some of the routes that I did got some fast lose gravel descent and handles pretty well with the cinturato tires.
very comfortable too.
