i'm looking to buy a 2005 Cervelo dual 9.
does anyone know of a place that still has any? i live in chicago but don't mind buying it online.
In the next couple of months some of the bigger Cervelo dealers such as all3sports.com or gearwestbike.com which both have actual stores are going to be selling 2006 "special edition" Duals. Basically the $1600 bike we're all used to with an Ultegra 10 instead of Dura Ace 10 drivetrain but in Yellow.
But no haven't seen much for the 9 around.
ok, but the reason i want a 2005 bike is because its cheaper.
the 2005 is about $1500 but the 2006 is $1900 which is more than i wanted to spend.
any idea how much the 'special' will be?

What size are you looking for ?? I think my LBS has a couple leftover Dual 10's
thanks. 56 might be ok. i'm 6'0" - suppose i should go to a bike shop and get measured up.
any comments on the differences between the '04, the '05 and the new '06 Special?
The 06 special is going to be 1600-1650... The New Cervelo Wolf fork, Ultegra 10 with External bearing crank... Really that 56 for 1450 is a good deal though. Like you said it is up to the geometry.
wow - i can't wait to find one of the 06 specials. i've given up looking for any 05s - suppose i'll have to wait a couple of months.

the -05 is much better looking (IMHO) than the 06. Not much different in specs, except the fork, and the 05 has a much nicer Vision Tech base bar. Everything else is the same. The later '05's (like the one at my LBS) have Bontranger wheels, much nicer than the Shimano's. Mine came through with Dura Ace F+R derailers as well, shortage of Ultegra at seasons end.
You probably will need to order a Ultegra '06 (SE). They are supposedly making them in limited qty. That means - no deals, and high demand/ supply ratio. Just like the Dual 9's. Very tough to get one of those.
does anyone have opinions on the Felt S32 as an alternative. it seems much easier to get and also cheaper. other than the 105 components it seams just as good.
