Original De Rosa Titanio road frameset from 1994-1995. Handmade in Italy by one of the most renowned framebuilders of our time. De Rosa continue to produce titanium frames in extremely limited quantities, although now they are priced at $5500 and command a waiting time of up to 12 months.
This is an earlier model, very similar to those ridden by the highly successful Italian team Gewiss-Ballan. The frame was in top condition before, but was recently professionally refinished in Italy with the classic ice blue/navy airbrush look. High quality De Rosa decals under clearcoat give a professional finishing touch. The drive side chainstay and dropouts have been left as bare titanium to avoid paint chips. Optically, the frame looks similar to a classic ’90s steel frame, but with substantial weight savings and of course the superior corrosion resistance of titanium. It seems to resist dents better than most bicycle tubing too, leading to a long service life.
With full chrome De Rosa unicrown fork made of Columbus Genius steel, in perfect condition.
130mm rear spacing for 8+ speed cassette hubs, and braze-ons on the downtube for your choice of DT shifters or Ergopower. 27.2mm seatpost for your classic polished aluminium Record post, and 1″ threaded fork shaft for that classic quill stem.
Obviously now in top condition with no cracks or dents.
