Pinarello 7XXX tubing is really Deda V107
Pinarello Extreme tubing is really SC61.10

Deda SC61.10 tubing doesn't actually have any Scandium

Fondriest U107 is really Deda U2 that undergoes a special heat-treatment/quenching process

Why doesn't Deda publish the techincal information about it's tubing? - because it allows for makers like Pinarrello (can you say rip-off) to use proprietary marketing. Has anybody been able to dig up any real info on Deda tubing (technical specs or testing) their website only lists the tubing diameters. Disgraceful.

Many (or most) of the large bike companies have their tubing drawn to propriatary dimensions. Since these tubesets are not off the shelf, you will not find any information on Dedacciai's web site. I agree that some techincal information would be useful, but don't slam Dedacciai, slam the frame manufactuer.

Personally, I find the advertising gimmicks insulting, but then I can just choose not to buy 8)

Deda could at least put out standardized test results and tubing properties.

I've got a triple butted T6 Energy tubed frame Ciocc. Nowhere is this tubing listed on the website.

I like it. Nobody else has got a Ciocc that I know of so it gets a lot of looks at practice and the races. Its' drawn from 7005 so it's a bit heavier than I'd like. I'm 150 and a weight weenie.

I use to race on an slx Ciocc (the same one the PDM guys rode - that'll give how long ago I raced). Loved that bike. still my favorite of all my rides. it was stolen about 4 yrs ago, unfortunately. you don't see many Ciocc's around and they really have great detail. really great bikes.
Good deal.No_sprint

Yep, right up there with the biggies minus the exotic paint if you ask me.

One guy on my team always asks me at the races, "man, you're going to race that thing?" he always winces at the idea of a crash.

I didn't do much bike racin' in the good ol' days. Sorry to hear about the robbery. That sucks.

I have been wondering what the diff was between V107 and U107. And if SC61.10 was a 6000 series Al w/ Scandium elements in it. The Pinarello marketing doesn't suprise me at all. Thanks for the scoop.
