Does anyone know where to get dual screen mt. bike computer screen wallpaper for my computer (2560x1080)?
I've been running dual-monitor rigs since 2001 or 02. Finding any pre-made wallpaper for duallies is all but impossible. I roll my own.
The toughest part is finding a photo composition that will visually tolerate being split in two by the monitor frames. After that, it's just cropping and sizing it properly (3840x1200 in my case).
The alternative is just to tile a single-screen wallpaper and go for the Doublemint Twins look. Personally, I hate that, so I make my own.
EDIT: FWIW, this means I usually shoot my own, then decide it would be great wallpaper and edit accordingly.
As you can tell from my signature I've created a fair share of desktop backgrounds and many are for dual monitors :) What TSL said, find a picture that's 2x or larger than the sum of your monitors' resolutions (that's ideal, so it looks nice and sharp) and crop and trim it to size. I actually use a Photoshop action for this, fully automated process:)
Or, PM me if you find such picture and I'll crop and size it for you.

I made a dual monitor background out of a picture I found on the web of a very used but still rolling Flying Pigeon in a Chinese barn.
The one thing I learned was to not have the wheel at the center. You want either horizontal or vertical lines there, but angles don't work well. I moved the bike entirely to the right side and it looks great.
