Presented here, is a 1989 De Rosa Rose. This frameset was imported from Germany, where it was still in the possession of the original owner.
The rose, and the color pink, are synonymous in Italian cycling and with the Giro d’Italia, as the leaders jersey is called the “Magna Rosa”.
A beautiful period C Record groupset with SGR pedals compliments this iconic Italian build with a saddle by Selle San Marco. The cockpit is Cinelli: both handle bars and stem. The bike is fitted with a Shamal wheelset, tweaked and built to bullet proof specs by Theo Seale of Super Sport Cycles, and were finished off with a set of Challenge Paris Roubaix 700x27c tyres which gives the bike a very comfortable ride while protecting the rims from damage.
Overall one of the nicest bikes Sven has ridden!
