Showroom quality, like all of yours. I love the pantographed head tube lugs.

I'm open to offers on this. Ebay asking prices are all over the board but people are asking $1200 plus for just the frame. If you are really interested make me an offer and I will consider it.

If you bought this, all you'd need is a Brooklyn jersey, a Brooklyn cap and long Roger de Vlaeminck sideburns and you'd be the hit of the hop. (Ignore that guy on the right. I think his name is Ed Something-or-Other.)

There was just a discussion on the CR group comparing DeRosa to Gios... Gios Super Record seem to carry the day as the more "go Fast" ride.
Owners of both, kept the Gios, sold off the DeRosa.
Even Ted Ernst liked the handling and ride more on bikes he test rode after service.

Discussing 6-Day strategy obviously. They were a potent Madison team.

Either that or figuring out what they were going to do with their mutual enemy Freddy Maertens.

Gios Pro - It's a Beaut

They're both speaking Belgian... mutually unintelligible! hahaha

From 1975 to 1980 we sold 2-3 Gios frames a year. The paint, workmanship and prep was head and shoulders above almost all of the other pro frames that went through our shop. That included US and Italian Masi's.

We had to at minimum ream and hone the seat tubes on many of the top shelf Italian frames we sold. Some we had to reface the head tube, fork crown and/or BB before assembly! Not so with Gios.



repechage I bought an early Gios Super Record frame from John Pergolizzi back in 2012. It was high on my bucket list. Assembly went just as smoothly as I remembered BITD. The ride was as I'd forgotten, rather "brisk"...

Three years back I got a bucket list De Rosa, an early 80's model. The ride is how you say, je ne sais quoi But, I was disappointed in the workmanship: I had to round out the top of the seat tube - it was built oval plus I had to remove .5mm from each side of the BB shell.

BlueDevil63 Good luck with your sale... IMLTHO, it's way under priced! Are we allowed to say that?

Well I like to give back to the community
I have it for considerably more on Ebay. Plus it is too small and I have this one already:
