Hi, sweet bike! I am also interested in the Karma but their geo chart leaves a lot to be desired. How long is the headtube on your S size frame? Thanks!

How is that Spike hub going? I'm right now considering to choose Spike or Dura Ace 7600, need more information about Spike hubs~~

The Spike hubs have been great, they roll smooth just like dura ace or phil wood. If you havent ordered Dura Ace yet id say go with spike. similar quality at a cheaper price.

Beautiful build bro. I had a question about the hubs, did you get yours custom made? Because of them being a 20/24 set.

I don't use the scattos on the street often, 50:14 is what I'm using for training / rollers

damn nice bike!

how does it ride for street or long distance?

any technical issues?

Posted about 6 years ago

zelaznoGxelA

zelaznoGxelA says:

I ride it on the street daily, it handles great. If you can afford one then get it. Its a very compact frame set. It does well for distance rides as well, the first week i had it i did a 60 mile race. No problems at all.

I never really liked the karma that much, but this just changed my mind. This is amazing. Very nice bike bro! How do you like those spike hubs?

Posted over 6 years ago

zelaznoGxelA

zelaznoGxelA says:

Glad you like it, the bike it self is good i have no complaints & im a picky person. It is a compact frame set thats pretty stiff on sprints & climbs. Spike hubs are sweet theyre light as well as a smooth ride, They handle everything i do quite well. Superb.

btw what bolt did u use for your omnium x zen

zelaznoGxelA says:

The bars are great, definitely worth the price. I crashed about a week ago on them doing 24 & held up perfectly fine. There is just a scuff. I used the chain ring bolts that came with the omniums.

longkachia says:

i tried using the bolt that came with omnium for my zen, but it seems like its too wide, couldnt tighten the chainring properly, does it work perfectly on urs?
