I have a Scandium Bianchi Cross Concept

and it feels real nice. superlight and just a tad of flex makes it fast and comfortable. I've heard Scandium has a fatigue life so I'm expecting an early demise. I can get some flex at the BB but at my size that'snot all that uncommon. anyhow I bought my whole bike slightly used for $1200. Don't have that kinda coin to toss around just for a frame.

I sent my steel Colnago to Italy last week to replace the downtube and re-paint. It'll be interesting to see how long it takes the eyetalians to do the work. Cost estimate is $600 and I can pick whatever paint scheme I want.

Rocklobster state on their site that a scandium frame has a lifespan of 1-2 cross seasons.

This of course depends on what one considers a season (6 or 40 races per year)
Kona also state the same on Major jake
