DeRosa Complete

Spacers were in my mailbox this morning, final piece of the puzzle to use a modern freehub and space to 8speed. Thanks Jim D for getting me set in the right direction! Iíve only gone around the block so far but the bike feels awesome. Need to fine tune the headset And front brake but basically everything bang on.

Check your drop out alignment, it doesn't look square.

Beautiful bike.

Wow, is that the factory color or a repaint? The wife would go nuts for a bike like that.

That's original. De Rosa had a more 'hot pink' later. I have one, not for sale.

yep this is the original although as mentioned above it was a much hotter pink originally. The fading was a result of my moving many times and the bike sitting outside on a bunch of balconies. I was going to restore original but then decided I really like the fade!
