Miguel Martinez's Mapei-Quick Step Colango C-40 B Stay, Dura-Ace group, hubs and post, Shimano "Look style" pedals and Selle San Marco Squadra saddle, Ambrosio Excellence rims and Michelin Pro Race clinchers.

Alessio's Alexander Shefer is riding this DeRosa King with a DeRosa high modulus carbon fiber frame and integrated fork, Deda Elementi Newton stem and bars, Campagnolo Record 10V components and Campagnolo Neutron wheels wrapped with Michelin Pro Race clinchers.

Vlodomir Gustov's Fassa Bortolo Pinarello Prince LS. With Dedacciai U2 tubing and integrated 1 1/8" headset, this baby's even lighter than its predecessor. Top-of-the-line Pinarello carbon Vola forks, Monocoque carbon rear seat stays, Deda Elementi Newton stem and bars, Shimano's ubiquitous Dura-Ace group, Selle Italia Flite Gel saddle to cushion out the bumps and Vittoria CX tubulars glued onto Mavic Ksyrium SSC SL's.

Raivis Belohvosciks' Lampre-Daikin Fondriest Top Level. Deda Alu 107 frameset with Mizuno Domina carbon fork, Deda Magic bars and stem, Campagnolo Record group with 32 hole Campy hubs on FIR's hula hoops, Selle San Marco saddle and Vittoria CX tires

ONCE-Eroski with Campagnolo components, but with a twist: the aluminium parts of the team's Record OR groups have been anodised black (the carbon parts already are, of course) and finished with gold highlights. Shades of the gold detailing on the fiftieth anniversary groupset!

Only Joseba Beloki will be using the carbon cranks because Campagnolo currently makes them in only a 172.5mm length.
Other special touches for ONCE-Eroski's Tour bikes include Selle Italia gold saddles and TACX gold bottle cages.

...unless I'm missing something, I couldn't find any info on a carbon Giant at their website.

Their warrantees suck, and I'm not a fan of "compact frames." I have no idea what they cost.

I'm looking into going carbon- I like everything about the Treks except the price and the billboards they stick on their tubes (ie. I'm not interested in "going postal")... and Colnago- talk about price!

If you order from Europe, I wouldn't be surprised if you end up paying 50% of the price of a Serotta.

Yes it's a flame if you want to think so. I just have a problem with Serotta charging $4000+ for a frame, made mostly of carbon, a material they are not even good at.
can you say carbon?dustin73

kind of like serial matrimony...

I would luv to have a Colnago C40, but that Pinarello looks mighty nice too, well a compact frame Giant appeals to me to, and that DeRosa (maybe a different color) -- oh what the hell, I take one of each.

sweet dreams...:)

While I'm not turning down any of those shown, I like Bonjour's Time frame. A bit too much with the graphics but I think my next will be carbon. Supposedly available in the UK shortly. Also, Bonjour's gone with Record 10 except FSA carbon crank, Time labeled seatpost, and Mavic SSC black brakes.

C-40 in my size is too steep a seat angle, the Look's top tube's are too long for my liking and the King and Giant are compacts which personally, I'll pass on. Haven't seen the spec. on the Time's but if it's anything like their Helix model, it should work. Of course there's always a Calfee.
