My most intensive restoration, completed in 2012. Complete paintwork and decal reproduction done in-house. C Record group came from a Gios Professional that had rusted away but the parts were strangely in excellent shape. Leather bar wraps with laser-etched Ugo De Rosa signature.
After about 3000 miles of service over the last few years, I decided to overhaul my 1990 De Rosa and rebuild it in a slightly different way, including installing a set of 5-point delta brakes. I wasn’t feeling the studio shots this time, and we had some pretty magical light coming in from the west this evening, so I went that way instead. The leather bar wraps are aging nicely too.
Selling my 1991 Basso TT bike, 55cm. Shamal wheelset, C Record build with delta brakes, the works. $1400 shipped within the US.

Hey, there’s me in the Red Hook Crit finals (first one). This is somewhere towards the beginning of the race because I was upright on the bars. God, what a fun fucking race. As miserable as the weather was with the pouring rain, wind, and cold, it was still a great time. Managed to hold the #1 qualifier spot until the last ground (fast guys/pros) and ended up qualifying 23rd. The race itself was madness, an experience akin to getting sprayed in the face with a hose while riding against the wind. Played it safe after getting my wheel chopped and ended up placing 27th. First race ever. Looks like a gotta race a bit more.
My teammate, killin it at RHC.
My new toy. Nothing too precious, just a classic to play around at the track a bit.
