In 1952, at the age of 18, Ugo De Rosa started his own bicycle company making handmade, lugged, steel frames in a small workshop at the side of his house. From this small workshop his business and reputation grew. He was commissioned to build frames for numerous legendary champions such as Raphael Geminiani, Gianni Motta, Eddy Merckx and Francesco Moser to name but a few.
As time and technology moved on, so the De Rosa brand evolved to produce frames from aluminium and carbon fibre but they never lost track of their roots. The De Rosa Nuovo Classico epitomises this long lived love of steel and traditional artisan craftsmanship.
With a Columbus Deda Zero Chromo tubeset, hand finished microfusion lugs, beautiful metallic paintwork and the attention to detail you would expect from a frame bearing the name of such a master artisan frame builder, the Nuovo Classico is a true modern classic.
Road frames have come a long way in recent years with new advancements in technology and materials. Carbon fibre, aluminium and titanium are all widely used now as well as the more traditional steel tubesets. They all have their own advantages: aluminium offers good performance at a reasonable price, titanium offers ultimate performance at a premium price while carbon fibre offers superb comfort and performance at intermediate cost. It is not uncommon for the materials to be mixed to give the benefits of all the materials in one frame - a carbon fibre rear end on an aluminium frame, for example. Here at Wiggle we list a selection of road frames to suit most budgets, from the affordable aluminium frames right up to the technically advanced carbon and titanium frames from leading manufacturers.
Few bike brands can claim to be as beautifully crafted or as lovingly made as De Rosa – so we're understandably excited about stocking them @ Wiggle. Formed in 1953, De Rosa is synonymous with everything cyclists know and love about Italian bikes: passion, master craftsmanship, skill and precision. Whether it's the hand-finished steel Neo Primato frameset which catches your eye or the Merak Carbon, all bikes are created with the same close attention to detail by the family-run De Rosa company, which is based in Milan. These are the bikes which Ugo de Rosa dreamt of building as a teenager. More than half a century later, his dreams are reality and countless champions have ridden – and still ride – his prestigious bikes. His love and enthusiasm for cycling is reflected in every single bike made. A De Rosa bike is the kind of bike you buy and keep forever...
