Not as nice as Tilquist's ones, but what about a Barfly 2.0 mount for the garmin - that would allow you to mount the junction box to the underside and solve your rubber strap conundrum?

Really like this build. I like the continuation of the head tube to the fork, and how it flows one to the other....if that makes sense.

I have the original Garmin out-front, I can use for now. But I really like the simplicity and symmetry of the Tillquist models.



Thank you all for the kind words.. :beerchug:

That is awesome that DeRosa offers the custom stem painting. Ive wondered why other companies dont do that. I wanted a Deda stem done up when I got my Casati. Didnt pan out though. I changed the stem out anyway so probably good thing.
Seriously beautiful bike. Congrats

Oooo that is nice! I've seen this bike somewhere a while a go and really liked it. Very nice job with the build. Really like the front end on it. Screams stiff and throw me into a tight corner. How do you like the geometry and overall ride characteristic?

Went for a smaller size than my old Storck Fenomalist. I'm 187cm and the bike measures 55,45 top-tube, the Storck measured 57cm. Changed to 25mm setback on the seatpost and a 130mm stem. I definitely sit lower on this, but I've always preferred small bikes.
I haven't ridden as much as I wanted due to work. But so far it seems plenty stiff when you put the hammer down, but actually quite forgiving over potholes and rough roads. This could also come down to the wheels.
I need to ride some more before I can tell you more precisely.

Congrats, great looking De Rosa. I'm not questioning your bike fit, but how did you managed to go down nearly two sizes? I'm too 187cm in height and can't imagine (but would like to) to ride a 55 top-tube and 14,50 head tube. You must be super flexible. My seat height is 816mm on a Look 595 with 57cm top-tube, what is yours if you don't mind me asking.

Thanks. My old Storck was a 57 on paper, but felt like a 55 with a semi-tall head tube (16cm). Top-tube was longer than the De Rosa, and I ran a zero-setback seatpost and a 100mm stem. Went for a smaller size since I felt like I could go down a size from the Storck. I'm not gonna lie, but I also really like the "setback-long stem" look. My seat height is 793mm and fits me perfect with a 172,5mm chainset. My back is more or less flat when I'm in the drops, I guess I'm just flexible. :D
