    Nova Cycle Supply is a distributor for Easton who makes a scandium tubeset. http://www.novacycles.com/ Nova has been in business for a long as I can remember (at least back into the '80s). Their website doesn't have much info, but if you contact them, I'm sure they can answer any questions. The main contact there is Lon, I believe.

    United Bicycle Institute has classes that teach frame building http://www.bikeschool.com They teach welding or brazing for cromoly, aluminum or titanium.

    Unless you're already an accomplished welder and fabricator, I wouldn't recommend starting with an expensive tubeset like Scandium. Getting the first frame (or the first few) right is pretty unusual. For your initial try, I'd recommend some thicker, lower-end tubes.

    You may want to check around to see if there's a local framebuilder who'll train you in exchange for cleaning up, doing grunt work, and massaging his tired feet at the end of a long, hot day. Seriously, it's a great way to get an introduction, if you can find a builder open to the idea.

    Good luck.
