    OK, boys and girls, It's official...

    I am now a De Rosa fan club member...'04 Merak, 48cm sloping, '04 Campagnolo Chorus 10. I'll have to get some decent photos. I took these in my basement as soon as I was finished building it. Oh, happy day!

    I have owned quite a few De Rosa bikes. My favorites amongthose still in mycollection are my 35th anniversary and the 2000 Merak used by Roberto Conti.

    Roberto Conti Merak

    Here is a photo of the Merak. I have a letter of authentification from Cristiano De Rosa stating that it is indeed the exact bike ridden by Conti for his top 20 placement in the 2000 Tour de France. Cristiano had new handlebar tape applied, as well as new pedals (although he insisted that Conti used Look and not Time as advertised on the forks). I installed a shorter Newton stem (but still have the original.) All the rest is original except for the tires which were originally Michelin.

    Pure sweetness!! I still have the 1989 (or 90?) De Rosa catalog featuring that white 35th bike. I used to drool over that for extended periods of time.

    Rescued from storage!

    I built a surfboard for a guy who had this bike in storage for approx. 15 years. It had been ridden a grand total of 75 miles. The components have recently been upgraded to a mixture of Record and Chorus. Open Pro Wheels w/ Record hubs. A sweet ride!

    The day with a red jersey I climbed Stelvio 2 times (from Bormio and Prato).
    Other day with a club jersey I did Mortirolo (Grosio) and Gavia (Ponte di Legno).
    There was a plenty of sweat...beleve me...it's just that it can't be seen on those photos. My jersey was all in salt. When climbing Mortirolo I even had my nose bleeding...smudged drops of blood mixed with a sweat can be seen on the jersey if you look closely.
    Here are the photos that show it better. Black parts of the jersey on the first pic will give you the right impression of how much sweat there was

    see that 2nd pic looks more what I'd expect

    you look more shot. I must compliment you on your hair. I wish mine looked that good after doing such climbs. the Stelvio and Gavia pix you look fresh as a daisy.

    I posted this above, but what the hell. Unfortunately I sold it a few months back to a guy in LA. Hope he's taking good care of it.

    early '80s De Rosa after a complete make over

    Gotta love all that chrome, there is way too much black in today's rigs.

    DeRosa Duel 2005 #660. Just built before this picture was taken. Looks good, built well (needs a good LBS to chase all of the threads, fabricate a BB guide, find LONG brake mounting bolts). Total mileage: 0. This will be raced, looking forward to it.
