Probably the world's first available bike featuring the electronic Athena EPS groupset from Campagnolo is now available to UK dealers via i-ride.
The distributor said that due to excellent sell through of the 2012 range and early delivery by De Rosa and Campagnolo, the 2013 De Rosa Bikes are in-stock and available to order in limited numbers from i-ride.
The line-up includes the aforementioned Merak Athena EPS and the 2013 De Rosa R838s, which have maintained their specifications but now come in new livery. The frames at the heart of each bike are fully electronic compatible. This hybrid set-up makes the R838s ideal for future upgrades, i-ride said, especially on the Athena R838 where swapping out the mechanical shifters and mechs would allow you to convert the bike to full Athena EPS.
