    I think that might just be the best looking bike I've ever seen...

    Love the stealth look.

    Ride the ***** outta it!

    My Wilier Lavaredo - latest changes were replacing the alloy Campag cranks with the SRM Pro and KCNC brakes for Chorus brakes to balance the weight increase of the SRM...

    Since my LeMond Victoire developed a crack in the BB and LeMond no longer exists, Trek replaced it with a Madone.

    I call her Big Blue.



    Still fine-tuning everything, bars will most likely be lowered another 1.5cm, and I already know my rear der housing is too short.

    I've seen this bike with white/white and it looks like crap. We've knicknamed the guy snowflake. I am going to red hoods though. And you'll notice white bars.

    after a uhaul killed the le champ, I was in search of a cheap replacement. Here it is. It's ugly but it'll race.

    full ultegra 10speed, ritchey everything else, waiting for shop to rebuild powertap. Gunna run open pro's with white rubinos.

    Nice racerigs, no messing around with either setup.

    I like the Scattante quite a bit, a good clean color combo.

    How does that frame ride? The performancebike frame's are my official crash replacement frames if anything were to happen to my Fuji and I couldn't afford Fuji's crash replacement cost.

    Yeah, about 1-2% although the wheel manufacturers marketing psuedo-science won't tell you that. Spin a wheel up to 20 mph with your hand, no energy compared to the weight of you and the rest of your bike going 0-20 at the same acceleration.

    I love that Cannondale btw.

    I don't think it's even 1%. I've read on the order of .01% to .1%. Either way, basically nonexistent.

    It rides similar to my le champ. It's faster than I am lets just say that. When I get the PT back on I'll give a better report regarding stiffness under a load. I also went from a SL-K compact to ultegra standard and I think the ultegra crank will be a bit stiffer. It's not the lightest frame but thats my only complaint so far (and the press in headset which is more hassle than integrated). The color scheme is growing on me and I agree with white tires the white and black is going to pop. Practice race last night everything felt good. Real race on Sunday report to come. All in all after my team performance points and 15% off i paid about $150 frame and fork. Can't beat that. Oh ya I believe it's a re-branded fuji.

    Flip it.

    The bike I mean. You have it on the non drive side.

    I've been toying with the idea of getting a Mercier Draco frame off of bikeisland, with Zonal aluminum and all, but that Scat looks pretty good. I'd have to repaint it though.

    they make em in blue, black and red so you have some options. Unfortunately the blue is a hideous mixture of baby blue and royal blue. Kinda like bud light blue (the pictures don't look bad but I saw one in person and ouch... it looks terrible) And the red is a maroon color. I don't know why they don't do simple cherry red and regular blue or royal blue even... oh well. I went with black by process of elimination. good frame, super inexpensive.
