Anyone have an idea of Scattante R-560 weight?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Of course their web site has no info. Id like to see how it compares the the F80, Cadence 2.0 and the OCR2 I was looking at.

Thanks
Dave

You should be expecting about 18-19 lbs.

I don't have an accurate weight scale, so take this with a grain of salt. On a bathroom scale, the 2005 R-660 comes out to 19 pounds. The R-560 should be 2-3 pounds more, so it will be right there with the other bikes at 21-22 pounds. As for '06, there haven't been many changes, so I'd expect the weights to be similar to last year's models.

I used to have the R-550 (Im pretty sure it's the same bike, just the 2005 model), and I remember that it not the lightest bike by far. I never weighed it, but I'm guessing around 20 lbs, give or take. I remember buying that sucker for about $650. Not a bad deal at all.

That Scattante R 560 is a nice machine for the money. Butted aluminum frame, carbon fork, dual pivot brake set, tried and true Shimano 105 drivetrain...complete with clipless pedals.
