Scandium Frame Review

Tech Center: "Scandium test
9.6.00 by Dan Empfield
(www.slowtwitch.com)

I hold a derisive view of reviewers who feign—at least in my view, many of them feign—to perceive differences between one bike's 'harsh' ride versus another bike's 'supple' ride. I maintain that most of the value in a bike's superior comfort can be explained by other factors, primarily tire pressure and which cycling shorts happened not to be in the dirty clothes bin when the reviewer chose to ride the bike he was to write about—if, indeed, he ever did ride the bike."
