De Rosa is one of the older top frame builders. Some consider Ugo De Rosa the master of frame building. Eddy Merckx road to all his victories on De Rosa. Ugo also helped Eddy set up his shop after his retirement. Lots of history behind that name.

I'll answer your question in a day or two when mine arrives, but for now: because of their great finish, smooth welds, great decals, love that heart in the "O" of De Rosa, and 'cos Ugo De Rosa built Eddie Merckx's frames & Eddie was a legendary fussy B* when it came to kit.

That'll do for me
