De Rosa Titanium, Beograd

Dual Speed! Record Titanium rear mech is there only as chain tensioner, therefore only one (left) Campagnolo Record Titanium ergo shifter is installed. Rear brake caliper hangs there solely for visual balance. No real braking there. Regardless of that annoying-to-many setup it's a very nice & functional ride and I've been using it regularly. Very happy & proud of it. I'm stiil lookin' for newer, more rest-of-the-group-correct headset, but not in rush for that cause C-Record just looks the part! ... & would like to get Chromed railed Brooks switched with Titanium one. Same model, same color.

Frame:
De Rosa Titanium EOS / 58cm / 1999.

Fork/Headset:
De Rosa (CrMo, not Titanium), Campagnolo C-Record

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Campagnolo Record 10sp / Campagnolo Record

Pedals:
Campagnolo Pedals & Toe Clips

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
Campagnolo Record 10sp / Record rear Cog 16t / Chainrings (53-39t) / Campagnolo Chorus 10sp chain

Derailleurs/Shifters:
Campagnolo Record Titanium

Handlebars/Stem:
3ttt Competizione Merckx / 3ttt 2002 Evol (De Rosa Pantographed)

Saddle/Seatpost:
Brooks B15 Swallow / Campagnolo Record Titanium (very rare, very happy)

Campagnolo Record

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Radially Laced / BLB Notorious 90 with Campagnolo Record Hub / Vittoria Slick 23mm

"Stunningly gorgeous!" That's the only way to describe this bike. Hope you'll fix the RD and rear brake issues or simply just keep it this way. Well done! Added your bike to favorite..

I love the way this looks.. But I too don't understand the thought process behind it. Is there a certain reason? But really this bike looks gorgeous.

Come on man, just make it a normal fucking road bike. I mean, this is plain stupid. I don't even understand how this set up works. Either saw off the cable guides and make it a fixie, or build it up right. I don't understand how this is any fun to ride. Sorry. It's embarrassing. Do you seriously just have the derailleurs and rear brake caliper on there for looks?! Vintage roadies really are the new fixies...

I think posting an adverse opinion of a bike is fine, as long as you can provide specific points and logical justifications. This world needs more critique. Personally, I think telling someone you don't like the bike shows a level of respect, because they care either about you or the bike (probably the bike because this is the internets). There are plenty of bikes on PR that I think are built up completely ass-backwards, but most of them I just don't care about.

As for this bike, it's pretty, the photos are incredible, but I do really hope to see it properly built up some time. That chain-tensioning RD you have going on seems incredibly sketchy. Also it'd be a shame to destroy those Campy pedals due to pedal strike resulting from the road geometry ;)

I couldn't agree more with iscratchmymind, but the 'problem' here seems to be the WAY quixoticle spreads his critique, trying to say something that almost everyone else have said before... in a much nicer way!

He took it quite personally there, almost like I took HIS bike while he was asleep & made it this way just to make him feel bad, once he's awake!

Anyway thanks for your comments! :) I appreciate your thoughts and hopefully someday, with enough money to spend I'll get myself a proper Campy Record 9sp Titanium Groupset from the late 90's (mint will also do, I hope I won't go nuts with those NOS/NIB wild price acronyms :) to build it up "properly" - if you mean how-factory-ment-it-to-be by that!

... and just to add, I think DomeShot503 has quite a point there with "loving & riding your bike" also, however ass-backwards that bike (and not just the bike) might seem to someone else!

Ok brodawgs, I'm really tired of being dragged through the mud so you can defend this bike. If it where built as a conversion, that would be fine, I would just keep moving. What made me react in the way I did is seeing that this bike is built literally for looks, that is, the verisimilitude of being a classy road bike. But the fact that the rear brake isn't even functional, the derailleur is working as a chain tensioner, etc, etc, it's just too much. Who can afford to build and "ride" such a dangerous and ridiculous set-up with such expensive and rare parts?? I couldn't, that's for sure. I take immense pride and care with my bikes, save up painstakingly to afford everything I have - seeing this bike and the shallow, exhibitionist nature of the build just really offended me. I didn't know if it was just a stupid kid who'd gotten ahold of a really expensive bike and butchered it, or if it was the ill-judged undertaking of an overeager connoisseur - so I'm not going to apologize for anything other than the f-bomb.

Are you serious? We go nationalistic over this now?! You're funny man, I give you that. But you should rest more, you seem like a really tired guy!

Sorry about my english, I'm not sure if I got it all right, but I'm pretty sure I'm not a kid anymore (unfortunately), so I guess I'll have to opt for the other option you gave me! Whatever...

P.S. If I can do anything else for you just let me know, glad to help!

I know, I know... I get that a lot but boxed rims are already on some other bikes I have! As I mentioned before, this one was imagined a bit away from conventional set-up. I thought to give it a try, went for it & it turned out to be happy end for me! :)
