For Information, Velocipede is no longer a US rep for Bixxis. Go direct if you're interested.

I was looking into Bixxis before getting on my recent Pegoretti spree and they have very attractive offerings for those looking for a reasonable price-point and quicker delivery. Communication is excellent direct from the DeRosa family and it seems the ordering process is pretty straightforward. If I had the need for another bike they'd be close to the top of the list, regardless if it was gravel, road, or all-road.

Seconded, I have an elongated exchange with Doriano and he has always been excellent.* I know that he has, to some degree, been working on a Ti version of the Fronda but is not yet satisfied with his ability to shape the chainstays to his satisfaction so if you're after gravel or all-road your choices are steel or steel.

*There is a LOT left unsaid in that sentence. One day …

I got an enigma from him in 2018 and called him about a piece for it. he called me back the next day. he said the spine thing is still a serious problem that they might have to remove the implants which would be major surgery again since its all fuzed in place. guess he goes to the doctor multiple times a week over this tryin to figure out what to do. he said the infection he had is back to.

Same sentiment here; inquiring about his well-being and hope he's hanging in there.
