7000 aluminum frame

 I have a frame built from this same set- Dedaciai Aversa 7000. This is virtually Italian Scandium. The frames build up very light but still reasonably stiff in the BB area. This one is going to the other side of the planet. The frame will be fitted with the customer's 3TTT Funda tapered fork. The weight is 3 lb. 1 oz- not bad for a fairly tall frame. Frequently these frames are under 3 lbs.
 The shaped tubes are not that easy to work with but now that I have about 6 of these under my belt I'm a lot more confident working with it. I'm not sure that there is any other builder in the USA making frames from this exotic stuff. If you want the lightest fastest feeling frame I can build, this is the way to go.
