Titanium Tuesday: De Rosa Scattofisso Titanio

Oh my. What a nice track bike. I’m not going to look up the price or tell you, it’s not important some things should just be admired. I think De Rosa have got the package right on this bike. The graphics are good and not over the top, sure this is high-end hipster transportation but, it’s titanium and it’s tuesday. Check it out here.

    Hey, nice one. Needs brakes, racks, and fenders of course.

    Lovely-looking bike. Although I hear so many conflicting reports about the merits of titanium vis-a-vis carbon, steel, etc. Sure it lasts forever and certainly looks nice but if it’s such a wonder material, how come the TdeF peloton is 100% plastic these days?

    Hey Tom, I would’t call it a wonder product or better than carbon, just another choice we can make. The thing with steel or Ti is that a singular frame builder can use metal tubes just that little bit easier than they can lay-up carbon fibre. If I was a racing man my choice would be carbon, it’s the right choice for strength, stiffness and weight + you can form it to be very aerodynamic. So on and so on.
