hey there everybody, so here goes, this is my latest bike acquisition, a Scattante Titanium Cross. just drove down to get it in Portland, OR last week to snag it up. these frames were built for a very short period by Lynskey and sold by Performance Bike under their (purchased) name of Scattante. it’s supposedly a pretty high end frame, with double butted and shaped tubing, and curvey stays.

as purchased it already had some nice goodies on it, a brown Chris King Nothreadset (not usually my cup of tea, but I’m calling it burgandy and it’s growing on me), a Ritchey WCS Carbon fork (with more than enough steerer, thanks tall riders!), a Thomson 31.8 Elite seatpost, a Thomson seat clamp, and some other assorted used parts.

basically all I’ve done so far is clean it up, spend a few hours removing decals, and throw some parts I had around / traded my brother for; it’s also inheriting the Gunnars group (with a couple upgrades that have been bugging me). it now has a full set of Paul Neo-Retro brakes, Paul Funky Monkey front cable hanger, Thomson Stem, Campagnolo Record 32h 2007+ hubs, Fulcrum Racing skewers (off of a Zero wheelset), Chorus rear derailleur (sadly my Super Record won’t work up front as it has a 32mm clamp), and the stock bottom pull pulley (for bikes running road derailleurs but with top mounted cables) was replaced with a Thorne Products Cable Pulley.

that’s it for now, more info as the parts start to trickle in, wheelset is next, should be a fun one 😉

P.S. the Gunnar isn’t going anywhere either, just getting re-visioned…

    Hey dude, nice blog. Our bikes are almost complete twins of one another.

        The finished build is very good looking. Love the small details. Here’s how mine turned out http://imgur.com/a/yAHND

          Very nice build man! A beautiful bike 🙂 How do you like the latest iteration of Chorus? I’m going to be having a frameset built-up pretty soon and I’m debating about groupsets.

          • Eric Garvock

            I love how my chorus group works. I’ve only ridden the 2014 record and Athena for comparison so I’m not the biggest campy-phile. I will say the grips are he first thing I noticed to be the biggest change from the other groups. The thumb shifter is perfectly placed for my gorilla hands haha. One downside is the 4 arm crank. I’m not a fan of overly modern design and I personally think the 5 arm looks nicer. I hear the 4 arm is slightly lighter and stronger so there’s that. Good luck on your next build!
