That Litespeed looks interesting, and a full carbon DeRosa, wow.

Perhaps LS wants to be more like Giant and sell bikes by the millions!

I still can't believe LS would make AL--what's there to gain when they have the rep of being Ti bikes. I wonder about this. Looks like classic 'diworsefication'.

PS The ONCE TCR got a favorable (favourable--for y'all on the other side of the pond) review in Cycling Weekly.

Litespeed making Al frames? Oh, the horror! Why, the next thing you know, Serotta will start making Ti frames! What then -- DeRosa and Pinarello making Al frames with carbon rear ends?

What? Really? Oh. Never mind.

This is the red lug version which shows the tube shapes better than the all black. Like they said, it reminds me or the Columbus MS (multi shape) tubes of the late 80's. The next question is HOW MUCH $?
