Folks,

The kind people at the SOMEC Booth were displaying 2 frames made from Deddaccai's newest aluminum (gasp) tubeset called U2. 51cm c-c framesets that weighed in at 900 grams[ thats 1.9823789 lbs.] with items like: full braze ons, replaceable drop out hanger, the new hidden headset and trick paint. Add an Alpha-Q full carbon fork to it and you could have a great bike.
