No, not that sort of date!

Just bought a NOS Titanio, can anyone give me a round about date?





Looking at the photos of other DeRosa`s I would say round 1999-2001 ish. Am I far off?

DId it come with a fork? I am not sure when they went away from steel forks-the mid 90's the forks were EL tubing I think? Very pretty BTW

good looking,

i have just bought a nos titanio as well. not here yet but mine is just clear coated ti with steel threaded forks. apparantly it was made around '05 but i will send serial number to de rosa and have it all confirmed. i think they make the titanio as a custom only, i may be wrong:thumbsup: so you may get all the info you want if you find the serial # and email de rosa. however the tubes are rather oversize for the titanio but since they are a custom thing should be safe that it is a de rosa.

That sounds like a plan.

Tubes generaly look fat on smaller bikes. This one has a 51" top tube.

Which should be perfect for me. Can`t wait.

how's the build going on the bike?
Well, everything is orderd and on its way. Looking at the tracking info, the frame has arrived at my home town so I should recieve that tomorrow.

Parts list of stuff that has arrived looks like this...



:D

The dura-ace bb cups were bought because my first intention was to simply move the drivetrain over from my old bike but I delivered that back to the shop I bought it from and got my money back.

2x King cage in stainless
1x brown bar tape

I expect the new drivetrain to arrive before the end of the week, and maybe 10 days before the rest arrives.

Tidi. has your frame arrived yet?
