De Rosa, Colnago, Pinarello, continue to be great family names that grace the downtubes of Italian bicycles. Yet, today there is only one family member of these that actually builds frames and that is Doriano De Rosa, son of founder Ugo De Rosa. Doriano does all the Ti framebuilding at De Rosa and that to me makes the "Titanio" model special.
Marcello, whose blog BIKEADELIC is solely about De Rosa bicycles, recently had a a Titanio built for him by Doriano. Following are a few photos of Doriano working on the build, a more complete photo set on BIKEADELIC here.
