I can't speak for the DeRosa in question, but many road racing frames today are designed for racers: i.e. skinny guys who never carry any gear. They want their frames to be as light as possible. Makes sense if you are Marco Pantani. However, larger riders and/or riders carrying gear may find these frames to be overly flexible.

Todd,

Please re-read your sentence... Really i'm not picking on you, more like having a go at what I know, (and you obviously know too) is reality.

Road racing frames designed for racing??? Imagine my shock!
