2019 De Rosa Idol Disk
Anytime you are considering buying a carbon racing bike from one of the classic manufacturers, you are certainly looking to add one of the greats to your bike lineup. The De Rosa Idol Disk will offer you that quintessential Italian balance and performance without forcing you to break the bank.
As the disc brake version of the Idol, this is a bike that will be not only race-ready, but able to handle the difficulties that longer, endurance-oriented rides will embrace. Made from a strategic mix of high quality T800 and T100 carbon, the Idol Disc offers that stable ride that makes it huge fun to descend with, while being light enough to make it a fun partner for hill climbing. And by adding the disc brakes, De Rosa envisions it as a perfect bike for the longest Gran Fondo category though the geometry will still be aggressive enough to feel nimble on the road and fast into and out of the corners. It offers great balance that will help the frame absorb the rougher roads while the disc brakes will give you the confidence to hold off braking till much closer to the corners on gorgeous descents. Staying in control is what this is all about after all.
With the Press Fit BB386 bottom bracket, the Idol offers a super stiff center for the frame which can be matched with just about every top crank manufacturer’s options. It forms the perfect junction for the Idol’s sculpted asymmetrical chainstays and beefy down tube, while the bowed top tube and lean seatstays will help keep the ride feel cushioned and light. Internal cable routing that will accommodate both electronic and mechanical groupsets will ensure the frame’s clean lines are not interrupted with a lot of cables and ties. The Idol carbon fork specially designed to withstand the braking forces caused by disc rotors will also help the handling feel so responsive and comfortable.
Available in six sizes and five colors, there almost certainly is a De Rosa Idol Disc that will suit your taste and fit requirements. It will be the ideal bike to mix up your racing and long distance adventures.
