    Weakness:

    none yet

    I have just purchase this bike and have a few long rides on it, and a lot of track stand time. I have never owned a steele frame before and after riding the scapin I didn''t know what I was missing. This bike has a very good road feel and if you think corner it does it for you. It seems like the faster you go the happier it is. The frame seems very responsive while excelerating and on climes, but is still yet agile if you want to chill with your buddys. I love the way it is dressed out almost as if it has a class of its own, not to mention I am in cannondale country and it is defently differant. As I learn more I will tell more.

    Strength:

    The 2001 model is called the EOS 7 and is made from columbus Ultra Foco, also the Wound Up fork is a option

    Weakness:

    A little expensive for a steel frame

    It is nice to see a frame which is built with so much detail to little touches. Some of the nice ones are the sanding smooth the seat tube, the holes drilled to save weight (ie the bottom bracket, head tube, etc), the drilled out drop outs, and the internal whether proofing. The frame weighed in right at 3 pounds. I have been very pleased so far and have nothing but good things to say about this bike. The ride is very smooth, almost as smooth as a Serotta Hors Catagorie. The selcof carbon post does a good job
    of absorbing vibration. Despite the very smooth ride the EOS 7 climbs very well and has significantly less bottom bracket flex then I see on the Serotta. It is not as stiff as an aluminum bike, but it doesn't ride like one either. I would recommend this frame to anyone. Scapin may not be as well
    know as some of the other Italian brands but with the tubing selection and extra touches they are definitely as nice.
