Will this be the last scandium ;cross frame ?

 It looks like the supply of scandium has ended. The scraps I have will not be enough to build another frame like this. At 2 lb. 13 oz.  it is really light. This customer is in the midwest and will be riding through the wet muddy conditions this fall.
 The frame has a standard threaded BB shell and a normal head tube for a straight 1 1/8" steerer fork. These factors contribute to the low wieght. the frame will be paired with an Enve carbon 'cross fork and a black King headset. Beyond that I don't know what parts will be mounted to this frame.
It will be sad to see this one leave the shop but I had better get it to the customer a.s.a.p ! He has been very patient .

This the last scandium? No more in the future?

The future of scandium for small builders such as myself is doubtful. Maybe if aluminum really does make a comeback it might be available. Companies that make tubing can't exist without big customers. Small builders just don't buy enough tubes to make it worth while to manufacture.
