De Rosa King XS – bike test RIDE 68

The first of the test bikes featured in RIDE #68 is the bright orange De Rosa King XS. Tested by Rob Arnold, he begins his review talking about the beauty of the paintwork… and concludes it wondering if the paintwork will make people think twice about the purchase. Great aesthetic… but a rather poor application of the paint detracts from what is an otherwise most impressive bike.
