|Check out the following link for a new all carbon Colnago,
Check out the rear stays on that thing, not sure if you would ever get me to ride one of those, again looks like an "old man with too much money" type bike.
Now if it were my cash I would prefer something more like this...
There does seem to be a big trend towards combining Alu with Carbon this year, kinda of like last year but with carbon tubes as well as rear end...

|Now, why does one look like a bike you'd want and not the other?||bill|

|They both are Record-equipped, flashy, zooty bikes. Is it just that Colnago is a bigger, more-marketed manufacturer? Is it the design? I guess I've heard grumblings about Colnago's quality control that I've never heard about DeRosa, but mostly from people who don't own them. Everyone I know that has a Colnago loves it.|
|You're looking at the little split or whatever in the chainstay||bill|

|I guess. What is that about?|

|Hmmmmmmmm..... I don't see a "split" in the chainstay. FWIW, it looks like a 'regular' C40 frame to me.
Does anyone have a better pic???

|I was told by a Colnago dealer that they were coming out with a Dream Plus B Stay.
I think that is what this is.

I would disagree with your comment about the stays.
The Colnago B Stay is probably the most proven carbon stays in the peloton.

|Look at the chain stays, not the seat stays. They're split from the BB backwards.|

|Those chain stays are definitely different, showing a split; you can see the left chainstay a little through the hole in the right one. The chainstays on prior models don't look like that at all.
