I recently wrecked my Giant OCR1 and I'm starting to look at a replacement. I was thinking about spending the extra cash for a carbon frame. This one seems really cheap compared to other carbon frames. Is it not a full carbon frame or something? Bad/cheap manufacturing?
Scattante CFR Sport Carbon Road Bike
I'd also like to hear from people that have this bike. What type of riding do you do? Do you have any other bike or have you had another bike and how does it compare with the Scattante?
In my searching I read that a good aluminum frame is better than a cheap carbon frame? Anyone know if this is a cheap/poor frame on the CFR? I'm concerned about the components of the bike but my OCR1 has a full 105 setup and I'm hoping just the levers are damaged and the derailleurs are fine. The scattante has tiagra levers however, I think they're worse than 105 right? Or won't match? I'm even considering buying that bike and upgrading the components to full 105 since I've been really satisfied with the performance on my OCR1. I'm also considering a double or compact instead of the triple I had. I rarely used the 3rd ring on my current triple.
Its really tough to pass up for the price. I'd definitely like a lighter bike but I did love my OCR1. What other suggestions do you all have?
