Hello!
Just received my new bike! it's a De Rosa Merak Evolution 2013 with full sram red(10-speed). Fulcrum R5 wheels and deda finishing kit. I really love its look, and it's light and seems really stiff. Even better is that it only cost me 2100£, had to buy it, even though my budget was only 2k €.
so excited to take it for a ride. Here it is :)

  • Very nice, for this Italian thoroughbred though, i would have preferred to see Campag components used instead of the SRAM. But thats just me.

    Gorgeous looking bike though :D

    where did you get that for the money ?.....bargain !

    that stem needs slamming tho :shock: !
  • Sram red was chosen so the weight would go down, and i really like the sram group.

    I'll get some better photos later, the light in my room is poor and shots was taken with computer cam..

    i initially bought a bike from salden.nl, a trek madone 5.2 for 2k €, but it broke during transport, and i had already transfered the money. They gave me an offer on another bike, but in the end i payed 400€ more and got this lovely bike.

    I think we all know who the winner was on this one! Great bike, I love Meraks.

  • new pics coming up tomorrow, im at work right now.
    the geometry of the bike is really good for me, really racey. though i found the sizing of de rosa tricky. its size 49cm, im 172cm, but the slope is 3cm, so it fits me really well
