The Fernweg is rather "heavy" to begin with (approx 1460 grams?), and with the 80mm profile, not as versatile as the regular LW Std or Ventoux.
Bearings for both F+R wheels are pretty good (on par with the Obermayers), but probably not as good as the Campagnolo Boras.
Wheel stiffness as well as braking is excellent.

OK thanks. Nothing is as good as bora hubs.

What about side wind ? I find my gen III to catch a lot of it. These must be even worse.

I weigh approx 60kg.
The wheels are still manageable with wind speed up to 25kph. My guess is that the blunt profile on the Fenweg does help to reduce the sensitivity to crosswind.
And yes, I do agree that the regular LW is quite handful on windy days.

Are you still running the 12-29 with those deeper rims?

Nope, the Fernweg is fitted with 11/25.
The Bora is on 12/29.

Wow. We know that DeRosa makes great looking bikes including this titanium model!

I'd like to hear more about how it rides. Looks like you prefer an aggressive geometry which is somewhat antithetical (yet entirely up to the discretion of the rider/owner) to why most people ride titanium bikes ie. more often than not they are more sportive/endurance style geo/setup with comfort and riding sensation being key characteristics.

Do you find any noticeable difference with Ti when climbing or sprinting, or overall comfort and riding fun?

I apologize for my ignorance, but what's the other Italian steed?
