It's got to be hard to leave the family business and set-off on your own. But if you're Doriano De Rosa, the son of Ugo De Rosa (the guy who made frames for Eddy Merckx), walking away from your family's brand is even more of a challenge. Luckily for Doriano and his new company, Bixxis, the move seems to be paying-off. His red and white Bixxis road bike won the President's Choice Award and was also recognized as being the best Campagnolo-Equipped Bike (which makes sense considering the company's Italian heritage.) Smooth welds, classic geometry, and beautiful finishes are the hallmarks of Bixxis's steel and titanium frames, something the judges certainly considered when choosing this bike as President's Choice.
