Scandium road frame

If this frame looks a little odd to you, it is because the top tube slopes the opposite way of most road frames. This rider has been riding this position since he was a teenager and seems to be pretty good with it. The heat tube is very short allowing for a low bar position, nice for out of the saddle climbing.
The BB-30 and integrated head tube make this frame about as light a build as I can offer at 2 lbs. 8 oz.

There will be some press in retainers that hold the bearings. This is good as they can be replaced if they wear. Many integrated systems do not have this feature.
