Rated 5 out of 5 by TommyP Just Amazing
I was a little nervous about making such a large purchase from a foreign country and not being able to test drive what I was buying. After quite a bit of looking, I decided on the 2013 De Rosa 838 Athena. The Athena gruppo has received high marks, so I knew I would be pleased. I placed my order on a Tuesday. I received my tracking number on Wednesday. My bike arrived from Ireland to Sacramento, California ON FRIDAY. I could not believe it when the tracking notice said "out for delivery" Friday morning. The bike arrived Friday evening by 6:00pm. I was as beautiful as the photos. The bike was fully assembled with the exception of the seat and post and handlebars and pedals. The bike came with a wrench and folding tool set, which was all I needed to complete the assembly. My first 50 miles were flawless. The carbon fiber frame and cranks did not budget while climbing out of the saddle even with under my 240 lbs. The shifting was very smooth and responsive and the braking was impressive. I also ordered Shimano 105 pedals which arrived on Monday. I cannot say enough about how pleased I am with my purchase and experience
