According to a review by Chris Boardman in Pro Cycling magazie, it's a lot of money for a very porr, albeit exotic, bike. Don't get it, waste of money!

I read a review in the dutch magazine 'Fiets'
Stiffness is acceptable, but it's not so light and manufacturing quality is not too good as well.
OK, it's a De Rosa, but you can find lighter and stiffer frames for the money.
Whow! That's a pretty damn nice garage door!

It's a DeRosa, but don't be fooled by the name. It is an overpriced asian-made frame that according to all who have test ridden it is not worth the money. You can do alot better than this piece of junk.
