Anyone like this? According to cyclingnews.com it weights 1750 for frame and forks anyway, so it's going to be of little interest here. Reading the earlier posts on the Cervelo R3 (new Bayonne), the supersized chainstays are certainly a different approach.

not sure if i would call it ugly or not, maybe it looks better in real life!

Ugly. I hate it when they get all curvy like that.

I wonder if the waves in the frame would look less pronounce without the red paint?

I dont think that quite captures it... I would describe it as looking like the resin has melted in the sun :lol:

don't like it, in my opinion, a cheap attempt towards difference...cosmetic changes that offer no technical advantages should AT LEAST look good, this one not only looks bad, but it also adds weight

Kuota Khan ugly, uh? Tsskkkk.......... :roll:

Ok....That De Rosa is ugly but there's no comparing it to a Kuota Khan for Christ's sake.

Ciao, 8)
