Anyone know the lowdown on Deda's U2 tubing. Its being pitchd as "the third metal." Anyone know whats in this tubeset? Is it scandium? Or is a more drastically butted/worked aluminum tubeset. Their site isnt up-to-date, so I thought I'd check here. There wasnt anything at the trade show in vegas last fall, so this is something brand new. Apparently Simoni rode it in the Giro. I'm kinda bettin its just their version of scandium. Watcha think?

Deda's version of Scandium is SC61.10A, so it can't be that. My guess is a metal matrix composite (MMC) of some sort. Anyone else.....
