"Maglia Rosa" Custom 2013 King RS

It is special when you can go to Italy and be measured and advised for a frameset. This story is courtesy of Marcello whose blog, BIKEADELIC, is dedicated to all things De Rosa.

"Maglia Rosa" Custom 2013 King RS

Our love story is:

My wife Amber I visited Italy to celebrate our honeymoon, vacation and follow our favorite tour; 'il Giro d'Italia' of 2012 for stages 20 and 21. For stage 20 of Stelvio, we stayed with, Anna is the best and a true cycling fanatic who accompanied us up 'il Mortirolo' to cheer the riders.

We took this opportunity to visit the 'heart of cycling' De Rosa factory. We contacted Cristiano in advance and he welcomed us with a display of all models. As we walked into the factory we saw Sr. Ugo De Rosa overlooking new Protos frames being built-up. It was a dream and an honor for us to speak and meet everyone and the climax to our Italian adventure. Amber requested Cristiano and Ugo to sign the frame, and pink to honor 'il Giro' which they kindly provided.

Our deep gratitude love to Cristiano and Ugo De Rosa for all of their attention.
