DE ROSA Titanio, Shimano Dura Ace 7410, 54.5cm, NOS (1994/95) – SOLD
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.
In 1990 Ugo De Rosa embarked on a new project to build a bicycle from titanium tubes which would stand up to rigors of professional racing and have the ride quality of a DeRosa. Ugo spent over three years in the reserach and development phase of his newly project. In 1993, the DeRosa Titanio was born and delivered only to the strongest guys of Gewiss-Ballan Team (most of the guys still rode DeRosa Primato made of Columbus EL). The results were fantastic, the riders were flying on their titanium racing machines. The Gewiss-Ballan team collected over 40 victories in 1994, some of their biggest were: Milan-San Remo (G.Furlan), Liege-Bastogne-Liege (E.Berzin), Fleche Vallone (Argentin, Furlan, Berzin), Giro d’Italia (Berzin beating M.Indurain), Tour of Lombary (V.Bobrik).
Proudly presenting another outstanding racing machine from Cusano Milanino – DE ROSA Titanio, which dates back to 1994/95. It’s the first generation Titanio model by master Ugo De Rosa and was the reference by which other titanium frames were judged. It’s made of superlight titanium tubeset, equipped with Shimano Dura Ace 7410 groupset, Mavic Cosmic 1st gen wheels, Selle Italia Flite Titanium saddle, 3ttt cockpit, titanium seatpost. A bike with a soul that brings back mid 1990s memories and still rides like a rocket.
The icon. Nice catch for any DeRosa collector.
