De Rosa

 

I reply to all who ask me in private a number of personal considerations on bikes that I personally ride, unfortunately you are in many (thanks!) and I can not answer at all. Fortunately, you do all the same questions .... To which I gladly reply:
I would buy this bike and why?
No, because I do not consider convenient brakes integrated into the frame
Defects? The rear brake requires a certain habit to be used
What would you change? Nothing
What upgrades would you do? Put a SRAM Red groupset
Is it a bike suits for Granfondo? Certainly
Is it a bike suitable for uphill? Yes.
Its performance is competitive? Yes.
What alternatives are there to this model?

Alternatives are always endless list, here some that are direct competitors:
Giant TCR
Specialized SL5
Bianchi Oltre XR 2.0
What is the main advantage of De Rosa compared to direct competitors?

The build quality and versatility of use

I want the bike with the best price performance/ratio, De Rosa is okay?

Contrary to what you think, the Frame Kit King XS has a cost of about 3000Euro, is not much, although there are cheaper products.

 

 


For 2015 De Rosa presents the new frame King XS, completely new and very content with the size of the tubes (XS...). Renew graphicalof models Protos, 888Superking and Idol.



De Rosa celebrated its 60 years of history with a new collection of bike limited to 60 copies per model, they are a model of steel, one aluminum, one titanium and one in carbon in this way De Rosa traces its history Four frames with classic custom made.
