Ugo De Rosa, one of the most successful frame builders was born on January 27, 1934 in Milan, Italy. His passion led him to study mechanics and engineering at a technical college. Later in the early 1950s he opened his first shop and commenced the manufacture of racing bicycles. He supplied many champions with his high-end bicycles (Gianni Motta, Eddy Merckx and Francesco Moser…), and also strongly influenced the cycling industry with his amazing bikes from Cusano Milanino.
Here we are proudly presenting one the most beautiful bikes that came in our store ever, the DE ROSA Professional. The frame is work of art, made of Columbus SL, featuring the perfection and attention to details to providing the best performance you might expect from early/mid 80s racing machine. Easy to spot especially designed thicker seat stays to improve the stiffness and many DeRosa engravings. Shinny frame is equipped with superb Campagnolo Super Record groupset, pantograph DE ROSA shifters, Cinelli cockpit, NiSi rims. Love at first sight!
