Zanconato Custom Cycles

#1801 - Aluminum Road32. I may have to change the name of this model.

Customer need - to shred all kinds of surfaces.

Solution - room for 650x47 and 700x40 and go rip.

Warning - extreme tech nerd gibberish follows that I hope may help any aluminum weldors out there.
On a personal weld-nerd note, I did a little tuning of my balance, EN/EP amps, and wave form. I have been really happy with soft square wave, but wanted to spend some more time with triangular wave. I found it really made a difference and I could turn my balance up while still getting the cleaning action I needed and extending electrode life.

#1802 - Aluminum Road.

Customer need - win some crits.

Solution - Scandium enhanced aluminum and a box full of pins for all of those race numbers.

Dedacciai has a nice selection of Scandium alloyed tubes now. They added a couple of new ones this year.

I have no idea what any of that^ means, but I'm thankful that you do. Amazing.

Scandium is available? That's cool.

At least I think that's cool - but is there any real-world feedback that a scandium frame is any different from 7005 or 6061 Al frame on the road?
