I'm looking for tech.spec.on DeRosa's King (carbon frameset),and their website sucks.Do they use Ti or Al for the headtube sleeve,bb sleeve,and drop outs.Also does anyone own one and their feedback on customer service, and warranty (if any). Thanks in advance.

This is what i found in a catalouge for a bicycle shop here in sweden that have DeRosa King:
frame build totally in carbon, integrated headset, full carbon fork, monostay design on rear fork, overdimensioned diagonal-tube with stiffening ramps in it, different angles on different sizes, ovalized fork-tube.

This is a summary and translation from what the catalogue sais. A bit hard to find the expressions for all terms but i hope you understand.
You're right about De Rosa onlinejtolleson

I tried to contact them for geometry specs and between the crappy website and the language barrier (I got back an email that made very, very little sense) I basically gave up.

Soooo, contact a De Rosa dealer. If you don't have one in your area, try www.schwabcycles.com

Speaking from experiance derosa's warrenty department is fairly lacking. It took 6 months for the shop where I bought the frame and the repair place where it was sent to convince derosa that the frame really was defective. Warrenty is only one year I believe, after that you're out of luck. That said I wish I could afford the king but will probably settle for the corum.
