    Maybe I'm biased, but I still prefer the old Mamasita...

    I've never owned a bike as long as I've owned this 08' Mamasita. Each time I tore it down I thought it was going on Ebay, but each time I let it sit in the shed and I finally figured it out. It's like my favorite pair of old jeans that I keep going back to. It doesn't have a tapered headset, no pressfit BB, and it's the now defunct Scandium material with carbon fiber stays. I love her just as much as I did in 08... Anyone else have Scandium love? Let's see some old school Scandium in 2012, whether it's new to you,reincarnated, or resurrected.

    Resurrected as rigid SS: 18lbs

    Fully geared rigid 20lbs.

    Here she is in 2008:
    SS, front shock, 20.8 lbs

    And my Dos Niner... which has been sold a loooong long time ago in a galaxy far away.

    I agree at 100% with your thread title. I missed my Mamasita an 08 in black like yours. I built it fully geared with front suspention. Then went 1x9 rigid, then SS rigid. Fun sexy bike no matter what face.
    As far as I'm concerned the new Mamasitas shouldn't even have that name.
