Does anyone know where you can buy Scattante bikes besides supergo?

Do they have a website?

I searched for it but didn't find anything useful.

Thanks for the help.

Scattante is a Supergo house brand. They aren't sold anywhere else. There is no such company as "Scattante" - it's just a frame that Supergo buys from a supplier, has painted and decalled to their specifications, and then sells. You won't find one anywhere but at Supergo.

Department stores do the same thing. Isn't "Kenmore" a house brand for Sears? It's made by someone else, but they put their own name on it.

so possibly one could buy the same frame with a differnt name, just as BP Stealth's have several names they are marketed under....

If you knew what company actually manufactured the frame, and what other names they're sold under. I've never seen a Supergo ad that identifies their source(s), however. A carbon frame might be distinctive enough to be recognized with a different name on it, but an aluminum frame, or aluminum with carbon stays, is so generic it'd be pretty hard to recognize.

For example, another Supergo house brand is "Weyless." The Weyless carbon crank is quite clearly the same as that sold by Profile, and under a number of other names. But while there are only a relatively few carbon crank names out there, there are lots of frame builders. Rather like a needle in a haystack, I think.

I just built my new LOOK AL384. For budget reasons, I bought carbon Wayless seatpost, stem and bar. I planned on upgrading later this year but after seeing the quality, I'm sticking with Wayless. The quality is every bit as good as other carbon manufacturers. I'm ordering their carbon cranks this week.

Kinesis alone has produced bikes for the following: Bianchi, Bridgestone, Corretec, Diamondback, Felt, Kildemoes, K2, Haro, Jamis, Monark, Peugeot, Raleigh, Santa Cruz, Shappard, Specialized, and Storck, just to begin with.

Most of the carbon fiber components are made by either Martec or Advance Composites....

Just buy one from Supergo. I bought the 853 steel model in Feb and I'm very happy with it for $1,100. I live in So Cal so I bought at the store rather than mail order. The components are quite good for the price.
