Opinions please...RB
Oct 12, 2001 7:11 PM
I found a crack in my road frame and would like to ride as soon as possible. Haven't been working for a while so money is tight. I have a Supergo close to me and was thinking of picking up a frame. They have a couple that look pretty good. The Specialized S-Works M4 Road frame for $359 and the Scattante Zonal for $499 with "Weyless" carbon fork. They also have their own brand "Access" carbon frame for $599 with carbon fork. Has anyone ridden any of these or know anything about them or have any opinions about them? I would love to get a C-40 or something similar but cant afford the money or time to get it.

Don't forget Ebay as a source.

Their Access frame rides well and looks decent quality, especially for the $$. If you are dreaming about a C40 or something similar, but want to save a few thousand, then it's a fine choice as long as you are satisfied with the warranty, whatever it is.

I would not hesitate to buy the S-works, I might even buy one if I wasn't so happy with my current ride (a Specialized).

I think they only have the S-Works in 56 cm only. Don't get a frame that doesn't fit you perfectly! It's a great racing frame but the LBS owner I know who had one sold his after 2 months of it beating him up. He said it really transmitted avary bump into him, but is was a fast accelerating bike.
