    I think the Sette frame looks more like the Flite 29er from a couple years back but that's just me. I don't have any specs on it, but that was my first thought when I saw the frame.

    Interestingly the frame shows up with a derailluer hangar on the site now. I suppose they figured out it would be rather cheesy to sell the hangar separately.

    Where's the hangar? Here it is.

    The Razzo does come with a hangar. Got the frame in yesterday. Pretty finish if you ask me.



    It also comes with a seatpost clamp which they do not picture. Oh and bubble wrap... wait, did I mention a frame box? All not pictured. I've purchased a lot of stuff from pricepoint and from my experience they know what they're doing.

    I've got more pictures of the Razzo on my blog, here.

    I visited your blog Jery - and i gotta say I'd be a bit scared with the look of the welds on that frame. Not the most visually pleasing welds - but if they hold I guess that's all that matters. would make me a tad nervous though.

    Not visually pleasing. I'm 215 lbs so I'll put it through some abuse.

    I think the welds look pretty strong. I hope it is fully penetrated. I have seen worse (my 1st bike)

    Looks about the same as a frame I got from the Canadian distributor Asama. Beat it up for a couple of years and still no probs.

    looks like it's a thick coat of paint over the welds which hides em a bit...

    look forward to hearing how it rides... inexpensive 29er frames are a good thing

    Nice deal but for the extra $50-70 I'd rather buy an Origin 8 Scout in Chro-Mo. I don't destroy steel as often as aluminum.

    Mike,

    My mistake, I had mistakenly informed you that the Razzo frame didnít come with a derailleur hanger; it actually does come with a derailleur hanger and can be set up as a geared bike.

    Sorry for any confusion.

    Thanks,

    Yup. I figured that part out. (See post #53)

    Thanks for the confirmation.

    Actually, it always has been steel. The Alu version came out later.



    Here's the original prototype shown at 2006 Interbike. I wish they would have stuck with this design actually. Oh yeah, it's steel, by the way.

    I don't know about the Motobecane, but I can tell you my Windsor welds look substantially better than those show in the picture on the Sette. Not saying the Windsor is a better frame but the welds look better. Also, my experience has been that two bolt hangers break really easy vs single bolt hangers.

    Just some observations...

    The new Moto Outcast29 hasn't been out that long, so I guess until more people have one this comparison will remain up in the air. I have one I got for my wife, but she doesn't ride that hard anyway,(towpaths,etc.), so I guess I can't help much either. I can tell you that the sliding disc tab & the derailleur hanger are very beefy and appear to be very strong.

    I would expect the Motobecane welds to be good since Kinesis welds those frames up. My Windsor is actually made in China and the welds aren't perfect...but they aren't toothpasty either.

    The Razzo appears to be significantly lighter though (18" is 1470grams vs 19" Moto at 2223), thats about 1.5lbs. So I guess time will tell.

    Nice frame. I have some spare parts laying around... humm perhaps this frame will make a nice home for them.

    I would suggest picking up at least one spare rear der hanger from Price Point. House brand frames don't have good long term support for small parts. I learned this lesson when my Nashbar frame needed a new rear der hanger, they said they were out for good stock wise.
    I'd rather be riding my bike...

    my Motobecane welds are okay, but there are some boogers in there. Not really 'high art'

    I second this request for more pictures. I know there are always bad apples when it comes to frames, so I am hoping someone else has bought one with better aesthetics.

    I would love to have an excuse to buy one of these cause I am loving that weight for the price. Not super crazy bout that chrome paint though....which means this could also double as my introduction into frame painting.
