De Rosa unveiled the latest concept driven offering today indicating times may be changing for the famous brand. The quiet location of inner suburban Melbourne was a stark contrast for the Italian marque to release this groundbreaking model.
The company sought out the finest high modulus plywood from Columbus, and in conjunction with Cinelli and Campagnolo has assembled an amazing first bike.
The monocoque design has been vigorously tested in a windy back alley, and improvements on the base model include titanium bolts and moulded one piece fork.
Other improvement include Campagnolo revising the fluid-dynamic Ghibli disc wheel with ceramic bearing upgrades, and titanium bolts. Cinelli has used the hides from wagyu beef to compliment the ergonomically pleasing saddle last.
The UCI has been tight-lipped as to whether the frame design will meet the new psychological-doping policy.
The feedback for the anniversary model has been nothing short of amazing. It's clean lines, simple colourway and world champion stripes is sure to be a hit, with new riders and their parents.
Jody Milham, mastermind of this concept oversaw the project from beginning to end, and is pleased to deliver the result to it's new owner, daughter Tahlia for her 1st anniversary.
What a Dad!
Ok, so it's not a real De Rosa, but it's very cool. Decals from Cyclomondo, spray paint from Bunnings and a whole lotta love.
