I just purchased a 2012 Diablesse, Size M last month. I am 5'11" and 175 lbs. I ordered the SRAM red groupo with Rosetti carbon wheelset and their CNC machined brakeset. First of all, this is a great frame and team at Rosetti was fairly helpful on the front end. As with any mail order company, you are making a blind purchase, to the tune of exactly $3,745, so crossing your fingers is an understatement. They did respond to e-mails, at times a day or so late, however, they did everything they said they would. Here are a few comments:
- This is cut to size frame, meaning, you need to cut teh seat tube to your exact measurement. They have a unique seatpost(carbon slip-over design), with a Rosetti brand labeled seat.
- Red Groupo- I have always ridden Dura Ace and Record, first time SRAM user. Front D is an absolute piece of garbage. I could always tune my own components and now I am either getting too old, 37, or I have no memory of what limit screws do. After 2 pro mechanics wrenched on this simple mechanical speed bump, it is still not working properly. If you look at the 2011 reviews on SRAM Red, you will see exactly what I mean.
Rear D is fast, very clunky, not to smooth but it seems to stay in tune. If you like the SRAM style trigger shifters being 1 lever, it takes about 1 ride to get used to them, no issues there.
The frame is very solid and seems to have great connection points, and yes, it is made in Taiwan, just like many other big name frames.I was concerned with this as well, however, I made the decision to purchase this ride in hopes of never having to pursue a warranty claim.
This is a no frills company. You build your bike on-line, you pay for it, a box shows up 6 days later with nothing but the bike. Simple as that. No follow-up, not survey, no receipt or details in the box, just a bike........which is ok, unless you are expecting that Amazon type after purchase massage.
I wish Rossetti the best of luck and hope I love this bike as much as I loved my Motobecane LeChampion and Colnago.
