The style of the frame is stunning and with carefully designed graphics, the finished look of the R848 is superb. The 848 comes complete with a range of components from leading brands such as Shimano and Deda.
The Shimano 105 groupset, apart from the chainset and brakes, delivers outstanding performance thanks to the reliable shifting on offer. The chainset is Shimano's Tiagra and comes in the form of a compact. This means that this bike gives you a vast array of gears to play with which should get you up the steepest of climbs and also give you the straight line speed you require along the flat.
Deda components are seen throughout the bike and are present at the handlebars, stem and seat post with Prologo (Kappa) being the saddle of choice. A pair of Shimano RS00 wheels, complete with a set of colour matching Vittoria Zaffiro tyres, finish of this lovely bike in fine style completing its great look.
The R848 is the perfect choice for a rider on a tight budget, but who also wants a bike that will perform well and is equipped with components to see you through your first sportive or endurance event.
Each R848 is fully built, tested and tuned by Wiggle's team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure your bike arrives in perfect condition.

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...

Getting the Right Fit
At Wiggle we measure each of our bikes to build accurate size charts for our customers. Our qualified team of mechanics then individually check each order, against measurements supplied by you, to ensure the size chosen is correct. Another reason you can have complete confidence when buying a bike from Wiggle!
If you are on the change over between sizes both options will fit. Racers and experienced riders would usually select a smaller size as this offers quicker handing. A larger bike offers more stability and is more suited to new and intermediate riders.
