The Good:

geo,weight,good looking

The Bad:

the extra work I had to put into it to make everything work right.

Overall Review:

To start off with I bought the 2014 model. I must say I love how this frame looks and rides.

Putting the bottom bracket in was a breeze. Then the brake hardware was easy too. Then I built the bike up, and had no problems until I put the integrated chain tensioners in. They were kind off painted shut. No big deal really for me I have tap and die sets, but for the average person I think this might be a problem.

Last thing I always do is put the brake on. I used an odyssey evo II. I happen to love this brake used one for years never had problems with them. The removable brake mounts were too short. Only a 1/32" or more , but still too short to make my Read More »

Last thing I always do is put the brake on. I used an odyssey evo II. I happen to love this brake used one for years never had problems with them. The removable brake mounts were too short. Only a 1/32" or more , but still too short to make my brakes work. Good thing I'm older have allot of tools, and know how. Things the average person buying this frame doesn't have.  I ended up grinding down the brass bushings on the brakes to make it work, but for the kind of money I dropped on this frame that kind of stuff should be made correct.

I guess for most of you the brake problems won't be an issue.Because allot of you might not ride brakes. Because I do I can't give this frame 5 stars.

Really weak

Rating:
The Good:

I loved the geometry and general look and feel of the frame. Light enough, and cheap from evanscycles.

The Bad:

The chainstays twisted after 5 months after landing sideways. Other frames would of easily taken the impact which leads me to say it isn't built for strength

Overall Review:

Its really good but i wouldn't buy this if your learning things or gonna be putting it under alot of strain as the frames pretty weak. Good for money if you can make it last

Miscellaneous THE SCORPIO IS A FRAME BORN FROM THE ASHES OF OUR LEGENDARY LO-FI FRAME, ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR WETHEPEOPLE FRAMES EVER. THE SCORPIO JUST SHIFTED INTO ITS SHADOW AND FOLLOWED THE LO-FI THEME. IT’S SIMPLE, IT'S SLICK AND IT'S STRONG.
