    Sette Razzo Frame

    If I had to guess I'd say that's a re-badged/slightly modified Niner EMD. Same DT, etc. It would be nice to have some specifics, though.

    It doesnt look anything like an air9 frame.

    Looks like a steep HTA. I'm curious to see what kind of geo numbers they came up with.

    I think it DOES look like an AIR or EMD. That bent downtube certainly convinced me.

    Looks to me like there is more of the TT and DT welded together on this frame than on the Air9.

    The EMD doesn't have a disc brake brace on it.Both made of 7005.I bet you they came from the same factory.

    when/if my cobia breaks, depending on cash flow at the time this frame will get a look from me. the price is hard to beat.

    Yep. Niner's are one of the most overpriced frames around. Vassago is a close second. Pretty run of the mill frames. $250 is about right for frames of that quality.

    The cable guides have different placings,
    the brake brace
    disk mount
    seat tube gusset
    dropouts
    rear stays
    BB placement



    Are ALL different.

    It has a bent downtube, that doesn`t make it a re-badged niner.

    Specialized has a bent downtube. Could this be a rebadged Specialized
    The welds look kinda sloppy to me, at least from what I can see. Kinda looks like toothpaste at the headtube junctions. IMHO anyway. Probably rides great though. For a frame made from 7005. It is certainly light - - I think it is even lighter than an EMD if the geometry for an 18 matches the geometry of a Niner.
    Thanks to www.weavercycleworks.com for my awesome bike frames!

    I'm looking to build a 1x9 for cheap.This frame might do the trick.I'll be running a 09 Reba set at 100mm.I'll need to know a bit more about the geometry before buying it. It does seem light,but will it hold up?Probably as good as a Fisher or Niner? I like the fact that it's polished,no more paint chips.If PP would have listed the specs I think they would have sold some of these by now.

    You could build a whole bike for less than $1000.

    I've got everything but a frame.The parts are calling me to the garage to build them.My wife is calling me in the other direction. I can't let these parts suffer and not go to good use.

    And the wheels. I'm just wondering how those other parts stand up. I already have a set of BB7 brakes and I'm familiar with them.

    So what I really need is for someone to offer a frame and parts kit that doesn't include wheels or a fork (or a headset, actually). And I want the frame to take a 31.6 seatpost.

    Oh, and I want it to be titanium. Not really a lot to ask, is it?

    Actually it does come with wheels. I think most of it is decent stuff... not especially light, but still good enough to stand up to good use.

    Okay, it is definitely not a Niner! (courtesy pic for referance)

    I would venture to say that anybody with a design and the cash could get a Chinese manufacturing facility to make you as many of those Sette frames as you want. That's not far from the mark here, I'd wager. By the way, the Sette is shown sans rear derailluer hangar. I hope that is included at that bargain basement price.

    What is the difference between a Taiwan frame or a Chinese one? Some would say that Taiwan is part of China.

    I guess that depends on which side of Mao you stand on

    Since 1950, anyway.

    I think you can also count on better human rights and less child-labor in Taiwan.

    Off-brand score of a lifetime were those Santa Cruz Chamelons that Jenson USA had with different graphics. I still have that frame. Great bike. Great deal.

    I'm interested to see how the economy pans out. Could see some really great deals on 2009 stock bikes at the LBS if they are not able to move inventory. In the last recession of 02-03, there were alot of liquidations of wholesalers, Supergo and Jenson picked up the excess inventory and sold components and OEM stuff for a song!

    Probably best to ask Pricepoint those questions. Specifically the spec's and such.

    Agree it's an interesting frame. Might be a purchase to get the wife a new bike for this year. Especially since it is so cheap.
