    Kula Primo ride quality...

    I`m interested to know who has experience with the Primo because I`m thinking of purchasing one. I`ve owned an Explosif ( 1997, columbus) for some time now and I like the feel of steel, but would like a lighter frame. I`ve heard that scandium is supposed to ride softer than standard aluminum.

    Does anyone have experience with both frames?

    I just built up a '05 Caldera frame and it is bone rattling stiff in the rear end. I had been riding a "02 Schwinn homegrown which was fairly compliant, but I hated the geometry.My Caldera frame is 7005 Alu. and all the front tubes sound more like pipes when you thump them. I love the geomeetry, but it is VERY stiff. Not sure how the Kula's ride but they have to be a little more forgiving than the lower end model frames

    I'll be getting my Primo frame in late January and will post a review of if on www.kona.dk soon after that...
