We work closely with De Rosa through CicliCorsa.com, selling their modern bicycle frames and consequently have established a friendly rapport with the company.
On occasion, we head over to their headquarters to pick up new orders and exchange a few words with Ugo, who still today spends his days puttering around the workshop make sure everything is running smoothly. Last time we went to pick up our latest order, we decided to bring along this stunning 1978 De Rosa road bike complete with a panto’ed Campagnolo Super Record groupset to get Ugo to take a look at it. With a playful, cheeky tone he said it looked like a well-made bicycle. Before heading back to the office, we asked him if we would do the honor of signing the frame.
