I'm on a budget, but need a larger road frame, what do you think of the RR frames SCATTANTE + Carbon fork for 250.00?

I checked them out in the store and they look very nice. Welds are neat and clean and geometery is middle of the road. I put about 1000 miles on one of the forks this year and found it to be first rate. Just as nice as the Look and Columbus forks on my other frames. The only question mark in my mind is the integrated headset which is unproven for long term durability in my book. Small risk really.

Good luck.

I have owned a Scattante Airplane with Columbus Curve fork and integrated headset for almost 2 years now, and love it. Wouldn't spend a dime more than I did at Supergo for a "better" bike unless I had money to burn.
