The OTHER De Rosa???

Keep seeing,,,,on ebay,,,,an auction for a cool colored De Rosa...Not Ugo but someone else. Wondering about these....Are they as collectible? Do they have a good reputation? I guess they are rare....well,,,ive never seen one before anyway. I bet they were never imported in the US. Anyway, any information on these appreciated.

The description in the eBay auction tells all there is to know, or you could ask JunkYardBike, he seems to be a fan

They had a bike from the other de rosa at t-town. It looked like a nice frame...the geometry looked very tight.

if you want it then it's collectible i suppose.

Wait no, yes they're super collectible, you should definitely get it for that reason.

Joe is creating a market. If he wants it, all the cool kids do.

A deal at twice the price.

I just picked up a white DeRosa off of Phoenix Craigslist for cheap. I can't wait to put 650b's on it
