As it's my 30th birthday at the end of the week I've decided to treat myself to a new bike:

I have upgraded the wheels from the supplied Shimano R500's to a set of Mavic Ksyrium Equipe's I bought last year & will more than likely change the saddle for an Arione (unless the Prologo proves to be comfortable?).

Unfortunately I am still yet to ride it due to being really busy :( .

    Lovely bike, welcome to the De Rosa family :)
  • Had a bit of a change up over the winter and toned down the white a bit:

    Full Athena 11 Speed groupset
    Fizik Arione Saddle
    23mm GP4000s
    Look Keo Blade 2 Pedals

    Looks much better, glad to see it's got a proper group set now :wink:.

    I recently changed the tyres on my R838 to some black Vittoria Open Corsa CX's and it really does transform a bike.

    When funds allow I'll be changing the saddle and bar tape to black like you've done.
