Thanks, mine's factory Lumina Verde, with black decals instead of white, we could pick our personal favourite color and as an result our team has become quite an colorful bunch. We have an wide range of colors, allthough the girls almost all went for the pink setup them being girls and all ;-), but I think the result has turned out quite nice.

Factory colors are: Black, Green, Blue and White:

But as said mine has some personal changes with the black decals and all the Deda Supperleggera parts instead of standard FSA SLK being a bit of an ww of course ;-)

Standard colors are nice, and i went for the Lumina Verde because I wanted something different for myself and in our team setup the wide color range really stands out for the team, and mine and most of the others really came out nice I feel.

Who color matched the bars and stem?

The guys at DeRosa (in the Netherlands BiciMondo) did, we could choose anything we wanted when it came down to frame color, decals, handlebar and seatpost color, component setup, gruppo etc. etc. just build up your personal dream machine, the only thing that was nn negotioble was the red 'De Rosa heart' beside that everything was possible.

here are some models:

I know I'm an lousy photographer, I'll try to get some better pics on our little trainingcamp this weekend. I haven't had the opportunity to get the frame on an propper scale before building it up so i don't know the exact weight, the paintob makes it heavier thats for sure, I will ask the dutch distributor of De Rosa, who's coming along this weekend what the frameweight is.
