Hi there! Congratulations on the bike, enjoy every minute of it. You joined a somewhat small club and the bike is really nice. Yeah unfortunately Somec has no clue records about their early bikes....

Expanding bucket list. De Rosa in the stable so it may be time to look for SOMEC. It took years to get the DR Pro.

So, texting and driving is a no-no, but riding your bike with headphones isn't?

Ride any style you want on any bike, just do it safely.

Wait until Pinarello is on the vote. But to be honest, Somec is a close Runner up there. As for the decals, I'm sure all "pre-Adidas" ones with original decals have never left the first buyer's room....

It would be helpful to know more about the bikes. Are the frames and groups of similar quality?

I’d vote for the Somec because I believe they are less common than a De Rosa.

I might be the only person who votes for SOMEC. DeRosa was a dentist bike. If you rode a SOMEC, you were in the know. If you rode a DeRosa, you had more money than brains. Just sayin'.

Knowledge base for pricing bikes would be more for classic and vintage bikes on this sub-forum. A 2012 bike is too new to get the most/best feedback.

Totally disagree. Fast group riding, gravel riding and (especially) mountain biking require strong skills.

We're going to yell at you.

Our Tuesday night ride is fast and furious, and strangely has no egos. It's all the fast guys in the metro-Detroit area. We rotate a double echelon at about 30mph. We sprint at pre-determined...
