|Any reviews or opinions on Scapin frames. I am looking at a Foco model. Sounds great just wondered whether anyone had some experience.|

|I had a Scapin back in the early 90's made of Columbus Cromor. As I recall, it had clean construction, clean lug work, well mitered bottom bracket tubes, yet nothing fancy by way of ornamentation. Decals peeled right off however, to the point that I pulled the remaining off and rode the frame without decals thereafter. Handled well and was comfortable and stable at speed.
A good Italian frame/fork. I imagine things are still the same.

|I currently ride a EOS 7 (the ultra foco frame) and can say I am very pleased with it. It rides great, is very smooth, and is stiffer then I would have expected for a 3lbs steel frame. The powder coated finish is done very well. This is a very light tube set and a number of extra touches were done to make the frame as light as possible. These include ti cable guide bolt and seat post binder bolt, drilled out drop outs, head tube is drilled out behind the h.t. badge, btm bracket shell is drilled out. The frame has shaped tubes and asym seat and chain stays. Overall I can say I am very please with it. The only thing to be aware of is that seat posts are limited as it used a 29.4 (or something near that size) however, Selcof does make a carbon post which fits.|| |
