Strengths:    fast. fast on descents

Weaknesses:    none so far

Bottom Line:   
This is an awesome frame I was apprehensive about spending this much money on a frame but wrenchscience talked me into it and I am glad they did. My previous bike was a Orbea orca and this thing just blowes the orbea away. The down hill descents is where i notice the biggest difference I am much faster on descents. I also am able to sprint much better. I did not think that a frame would make this much of a difference but it did. I could not be happier with the De Rosa Idol min is a 2009 model.

Idol question (not American Idol)

My LBS has for sale a used Idol with Campy Record 10 speed. The bike is stunning in white and red. The price seems fair and I think I may get it even a little lower.

Time to build up my '08 Idol... Anyone know the max spacers allowed on the Mizuno carbon fork (between the Record headset and the stem)? I believe it's 40mm on Reynold's and 50mm on Easton's. This will be my Sunday bike, so I'm wanting a super-comfy position for long jaunts... w/o going overboar ... Read More »
