    No excuse...

    I've had my De Rosa Dual for about 5 months now, and yet I don't have a single photo of it!

    Alright, here are some De Rosa pictures, as promised.

    Mrs. E says the bar tape needs to be better color coordinated. WHat do you think?

    Thanks. Sorry for the slightly off-topic question, but I have a similar gruppo coming in at the end of next week. This will be my first threadless setup, and your info will help in dialing in an initial spacer configuration.

    Very nice Dual. Do you have any idea what it weighs with your Record and Zipps? How did you decide on the Dual model? Cosmetically, I'd stick with the black tape and tires. The frame is very flashy, just let it command the attention. Plus, you'll never get the reds to match with red tape and it will just look grimmy looking. I have to get some better pictures of my new yellow Merak.

    My 04 Merak

    Sorry for the crummy pic, is there a way around the file size limit? Elviento, I had a Dual for a day (long story, can you say eBay?) and loved it.

    Very nice. I dig the color. And am getting more used to the shape of the tubing as well.

    I have a nearly identical 2004 model Dual (60cm) with full Record from 3 years ago, Eurus wheelset, Michelin Pro race 23 tires, Aliante seat and Durace pedals. It weighs 18.25 pounds. I don't know how these guys get bikes down to 15 pounds!
