Q & A

Much more than an "entry level" bike, the monocoque structure of the R838, with its attractive and elegant 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.

A frame that responds to the need for the maximum manoeuvrability, reliability and lightness, its greatest advantage is the excellent relationship between quality, performance and value that makes it an ideal first race bike, authentically finished and painted by hand as you would expect from De Rosa.

About De Rosa
De Rosa - master craftsmen; making high performance race-winning frames that are also beautiful to behold. They are masters at working with the very latest products - whether it be carbon, titanium, aluminium or steel. Strong and stiff in the right places without compromise, at De Rosa they know how to work with their materials; how to layer and work in different amounts and directions in any given area to optimise their design and ensure the best combination of lightness, torsional rigidity and responsiveness.

The company has a history stretching back into the golden age of cycling, established in 1958 when company founder Ugo De Rosa, having previously worked as a pro tour mechanic was asked to produce a bike for Raphael Geminiani to use in the upcoming the Giro d'Italia. The rest as they say is history, with De Rosa bikes becoming a near permanent fixture in the professional peloton and gaining real exposure as the bike supplier and mechanic to Eddy Merckx's Moulteni team in the 1970's.

Today Ugo still remains at the head of the company but has been joined by his three sons, who each specialise in a particular area of the business, managing the development and production of their frames from both traditional materials like steel, aluminium or titanium and the latest carbon composites, always pushing the boundaries of what is possible but with a level or respect for their rich heritage. With a De Rosa you are not just buying a bicycle, but a work of art also!
