We just had some more tasty De Rosas land in the shop. Needless to say, they look amazing and need to be seen up close and personal, like.
Firstly is their cheapest full carbon monocoque bike, the R848, with a mix of 105 and Tiagra it retails at £1,700.
And secondly we have a Merak Evolution frameset (in the same colourway pictured below), which features a high modulus frame and full monocoque tapered fork. Being responsive and using your power efficiently are key to the design of the Merak Evolution and this comes through in the oversized bottom bracket and headtube areas which transfer every watt of power into forward motion and the aero seat tube and (new for 2012) tricolore aero carbon seatpost which help you cheat the wind. This frameset is designed for a regular cabled setup, but will take Di2 or EPS systems. Retail is £2,000.
