The De Rosa Protos was first introduced back in 2006 as a bike derived from Stefano Garzelli’s prototype racing frames. This bike was introduced as De Rosa‘s top of the line carbon offering, and it sure has come quite a way in six years. The initial Protos weighed in at 950 grams, the current being under 800 after a few tweaks.
A pretty aero and high tech machine as-is, I came across a Protos built up with the new Campagnolo EPS Electronic Power Shift system – now that’s some bling. See the rest below.
