De Rosa Merak a Scandium frame????(4 posts)

De Rosa Merak a Scandium frame????Ride-Fly

I noticed that the Merak is made of Dedacciai SC 6110. Is the "SC" stand for Scandium??? If so, how come they don't go out their way to promote that it is Scandium??? Assuming that it is SC, how would the Deda 6000 series AL/SC compare to the Easton 7000 series AL/SC from the Merckx Team SC??? Is Easton's better because they pioneered Scandium for bike frames??? Is Deda's better because 6000 series AL is generally better AL than 7000??? Is there a difference in the percentage of SC in 2 tubemakers??? Lastly, I think I read that Easton also throws in some other rare Earth elements into their SC tubes. How about Deda's??? Thanks for reading my many questions!!! (I fully expect that De Rosa homer onespeed to respond! I would be disappointed if he didn't!) :^) Alas, if the Merak is not made of SC, then this post is pure garbage. Ride ON!!!

I know the newer models are Deda V107. Well, the question could still apply to the De Rosa Planet as it is made of the SC 6110.

I know of a guy who is looking to sell a an older (circa 99) DeRosa Planet frame/fork. The URL below should take you there if that sort of thing floats your boat.

The only info I found that was interesting was here:

Alot of excellent frames use the SC 6110 tubing - for example: Pinallero Prince, Ciocc's frames, the Fondriest Don Racer.
