    I know the drops could swing back a touch to be"correct" but I mostly ride on the hoods , being a semi old timer w/less than stellar discs...fortunately good hand strength as those athenas are not dbl pivots..who wants to stop fast anyways....usually a quick trip over the bars as well...all done ,hope you enjoy

    All finished at last. Just changed seatpost and saddle, pedals, and handlebar tape. Now the only thing missing is spring.

    Oh, but it wasn't finished after all. Spot the difference?

    No joke! It's been a long day of work with my only break being an hour on the trainer while doing email on my phone. Somehow figuring out the difference between those two photos became way more important than the 10th meeting of the day. It helps that Fidelio's bike might be one my favorite DeRosas around.

    I've just been out for an hour in gales, rain and hail. I don't know what all the fuss was about over MSR and yes it is a tiptop DeRosa.

    Beautiful! May I suggest black bar tape on the blue one though (or a white saddle)?

    I know this cell phone picture doesn't warrant inclusion in anything called a gallery, but I wanted to share as it marked my first ride on modern carbon and my first ride on any Derosa. It's a parts bin build thrown together by my brother for when I visited him in Northern Ireland last week. I rode it as is, besides raising the saddle about an inch. What a lovely ride. I felt instantly comfortable once the saddle was at my preferred height. I guess it's just another case of wheels in the right place and all that.

    We all come at this from different perspectives. The color choice is period-correct. Willy Gil's bikes are nicely put together.

    Didn't mean to sound dickish. I rememeber seeing white saddles first in the eighties and it was then that I started to subscribe to the aesthetic criteria you suggested. If I wanted a bike to be 1970's authentic It would look like Willy Gil's does. Regards.

    I found this King X-Light for a great price and couldn't really say no. I've always wanted to try a carbon De Rosa, but was never ready to shell out that much for one. This one was reasonable enough I won't hesitate to race it.
