    I use carbon forks for touring. Am I going to die?

    STATO: I dunno. I know both swapout frames I’ve got have seat stay disk mounts.
    Kingtut: nay bother.

    Are you guys going to be doing the scandal as a built bike too?

    looks a bit more like old prototype which was an amazing ride, so this new effort should be top banana. Any scandium or should it be called a sandal?

    I’m sure they will do. I don’t know the details.

    Any intention of doing an ebb version if anything at any point?

    As an owner of one of the original Scand-al frames may I ask how the bent seat tube adds to the design?
    I’m guessing it gives more tyre clearance or a shorter wheelbase, just how much though & does the cable to the front mech still limit clearance?

    Cheers.

    To answer my own question I have now noted that the new design has downtube mounted cables & a bottom pull front mech, so I guess it’s a shorter wheelbase thing.

    Same geometry essentially.

    Including wheelbase Brant?
    If so then what is the point of the bent seat tube?

    Cheers.

    Yes, of course you’re going to die.

    Unless you’re the first real Scottish vampire, of course.

    Is the seat tube angle the same too? 6’6″ here and run the seat pretty high, I worry a bit about being far further over the back, and the wheel further forward?

    Looks very nice though, glad you’ve done a raw one 🙂 Shame the tapered reducer headsets are all £50 instead of the £20 ones the old frame could run, still.

    its aluminium alloy, but scandium alloy is mostly aluminium anyway.

    Can’t help but feel you’ve missed the point there somewhat.

    The new carbon frames are made out of coal apparently, coal is mostly carbon anyway.

    i did as well 😀 🙄

    Technicaly you could…………

    Coal -> SynGas -> Hydrocarbons -> Ethane -> Ethylene -> PolyEthylene -> Carbon fibre

    “technically”

    Phew, close one.

    Ok I was being flippant but that’s not really the same. I was (badly) gettIng at the fact that there are more important aspects of the design than <1% of Scandium in an aluminium frame.

    Anyway, i rode the Scandal over the weekend. It’s fun.

    Who said there wasn’t? It was a fair enough question, I can’t see the link between these two statements to be honest.

    People still cling on to those old 853 Inbreds and scandium Scandals 🙂

    Interesting to see Niner dropping scandium this year, it does make the Air 9 even more bonkers overpriced.
