|Can anyone help me out with any info about the DeRosa Titano frame. I have a chance to buy one, but don't know much about it.
Are they available presently in the U.S.?
Are they still made by the bike company? The one I am considering is a 2001 model.

|I tried to find this frame when I was shopping ti bikes, and was told it wasn't distributed in the US. I couldn't really find much info, other than the DeRosa name (which instilled confidence), the good looks, and the geometry specs.|

|The US distributer of derosa doesn't offer the bike and don't list what the retail price could be. For sizing information they list it as custom, so there is no size specs. If it fits nothing rides like a derosa.|

|A friend of mine is DeRosa nut (owns several of them, including a Titanio). He certainly likes the Titanio. If they don't sell them in the States, you should check on the internet and see what they are selling for in the UK if you want to compare the price. I just purchased a 2002 Merak from the UK for a lot less them I would have paid in the States.|

|thanks for the help on the DeRosa bike. I just did go on and bought one in a small town in Italy. One of those towns where noone speaks english. Now I just need fedex to pick it up from the shop & deliver it to me. I got the titano with DuraAce.

|Maestro predominantly deal in De Rosas and Colnagos - have done for over 20 years and ship all around the world. They're based in England, I live close by and have dealt with them for many years.
Check out their advert in Procycling or Cycle Sport for their prices.
One point about De Rosas - very few people have any stock and typical delivery can be 9 months - but worth the wait never-the-less.
