Much more than an “entry level” bike, the R848 is elegant, showing attention for every detail, as in the case of all De Rosa’s products. The R848 comprises Shimano 105, and FSA components with Vittoria and Selle Italia also.
|Number of gears:||20|
|Wheel Size:||700c (622)|
The monocoque structure of the R848, with its attractive lines, combines perfectly with the technical requirements necessary to participate in modern cycling, even for those approaching the sport and the world of De Rosa for the first time.
The compact chainset, with a wide range of sprockets on the cassette, gives you a large choice of gears for speed and for climbing. Many sportives events incorporate some nasty/steep climbs on the route so having a compact chainset makes life a little bit easier.
A frame that responds to the need for the maximum manoeuvrability, reliability and lightness. Its greatest advantage is the excellent relationship between quality and performance, making the R848 unbeatable and allowing athletes to make a spectacular entrance to the world of De Rosa.

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.
