    Scattante FR-560 for $639. Any good ?

    Im in the market for a fitness/commuter bike. I had narrowed it down to the Specialized Sirrus or the Giant Dash. Originally I was looking to spend about $1000.

    Performance bicycle is offering 20% off select models, and they have the Scattante FR-560 for $639 after discount.

    I dont know much about this brand but the specs seem decent for the price. I searched the forums but couldnt find much info about the brand/model

    Also, I currently have a 22.5" trek and fit comfortably on Specialized and Giant XL sizes. What would this convert to in CM ?

    Anyone have any experience with this bike ? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Here are the specs:

    BOTTOM BRACKET: Shimano External
    BRAKES: Tektro Quartz
    CASSETTE: Shimano HG 5600, 12/25T
    CHAIN: Shimano 10-speed
    CRANKSET: Shimano SGX, 50/34T
    FORK: SL3 Carbon blades, Alloy steerer
    FRAME: XRL Aluminum
    FRONT DERAILLEUR: Shimano 10-speed
    GRIPS/TAPE: Rubber
    HANDLEBAR: Alloy, Black
    HEADSET: Cane Creek IS24E, 1 1/8"
    LEVERS: Tektro Quartz
    PEDALS: Alloy, toe cages and straps
    RACK MOUNTS: None
    REAR DERAILLEUR: Shimano 105
    SADDLE: Comfort, Black
    SEATPOST: Alloy, Black
    SHIFTERS: Shimano 10-speed
    STEM: Ritchey, adjustable
    TIRES: Vittoria Zaffiro, 700c x 28 folding
    WHEELSET: Alex ALX 270, clincher

    Seems pretty fair for the price. I'm sure it would be more than adequate for commuting.

    BTW, 1 inches = 2.54 centimeters.
