The Scud is our most versatile bike yet. We designed this bike to be a
fast racing machine for larger riders as well as a smooth and durable
ride for expert recreational cyclists. The Scud takes all of the great
characteristics of the Rocket to the next level. The beefier ovalized
downtube and top tube create more lateral and torsional stiffness and
increases the durability of the front end. The large oval seatstays and
chainstays strengthen and stiffen the rear end, and the sweeping
chainstay design helps to provide more damping in the rear of the bike.
The added stiffness and damping help to keep you in control in fast
tight turns, so you can always cut to the inside and take the
straightaway. Magnesium's unique vibration damping ability is multiplied
with the Scud due to the extra material. That means you get an even
stiffer frame than the Rocket with a smoother ride.
There is a small amount of weight gain with the added material, but a
frame still weigh's in under 4lbs. If you are looking for a light and
fast bike with an amazing ride, the Scud will not only surprise you, it
will impress you and everyone that sees your bike. Order yours today and

"I raced the new Paketa this morning. Glad I did. The ride is so smooth
and it is much stiffer than my older model Trek carbon bike. The power
put into the pedals seemed to drive the bike foward easily with little
wasted effort, which helped me save energy since I was racing in 2
separate groups this morning."
