    I think any De Rosa for $150 is a good deal.

    Probably a joke but, if not, run.

    Either a joke or you'll find out what 'some rust' means...

    A DeRosa touring set-up for $300 ... darn, N.C. is only about a 10 hour drive. I could be there first thing in the morning if it's still available!

    DeRosa 28 Speed - $300 (New Bern)

    Custom made in Italy by the Master Himself. Small frame, I am 5'7" tall. This is a "touring" bike to ride and have fun with..it is not the bike for you to ride in Triathlons or other racing events. DeRosa was one of the original bike builders who made custom bikes for the Tour de France participants.
    The 28 Speeds give you maximum flexibility.
    If you are interested or want more info, reply by 'e' mail with phone # and I will return your call the same day.

    What? The owner of a bike like that doesn't know how to measure his own frame?

    That green one is the first DeRosa I've seen that would look good on a rack in a Walmart.

    That was my thought when I saw the graphics. I hate that whole "made by the master" hyperbole in any case: Really? Did you watch him braze the frame?
