Does anybody know about the rigidness and/or flex/give of the new scattente frame being sold by supergo. it has a carbon seat stay wishbone, thats molded into an aluminum frame. I kind of want something that's going to be comfortable for long road rides, yet good handling and acceleration. I'm just worried about the amount of flex on the carbon wishbone seatstays.

there are more and more people asking about these frames.... is this some offhanded way of supergo advertising these things?

I too am considering one of these framesets. It's my understanding that these frames ride very nice but have very little flex in the BB area. It's the same principal that Pinarello uses. I spoke with the manager of Supergo oceanside and he told me that it's handmade in the Cinelli factory using their best carbon (seatpost and fork and rear stay), and columbus airplane tubing. He also mentioned that these framests would be about three times the price normally but they bought them directly from cinelli eliminating the middle man. Also, I must say, I DO NOT work for Supergo! Nor do I care how many of these frames or any other bike stuff they sell. I guess we need to qualify ourselves to be on this board now, if we inquire about certain products.

It's because once you enter the roadbikereview site, it's one of the hot deals, right there in front of all of us.

I don't like the way the carbon seatstay is mated with the aluminum. My only opinion.
