Any clydes on a Scott speedster?

just curious...fairly priced...only one store around me sells them...their 61 seems to be my size based on measurements...
the speedster s20 seems to be be fairly equipped (105s) for its price

plus it would be cool to have my first name on my bike!

I am no longer considered a Clydesdale since I am shedding about 2 lbs a week, but I was 205 lbs and yes, I have a 2007 Scott Speedster S30 that I picked up for $650 off of Craigslist.org. I love my bike! I have made some upgrades to it over the last 2 years and I have turned it into a 19 lb race ready bike. I say get the bike. The Shimano 105s are a great set up for the money. The wheels are ok, but the first thing you should upgrade on any bike is the wheelset. I went with Mavic Ksyrium Equipe. Light, Stiff, and strong. And affordable. I have also upgraded the drive train to Ultegra Derailleurs and an FSA Gossamer Pro double compact crankset, a carbon seatpost and bars. People ask why not just buy a new bike? I say its a perfectly good frameset to build on and when I do buy a carbon race bike, I will have a great back up if I need it and a super buddy bike. Once again, I say buy it. As long as its your size, you will not regret it.

I am all for a used bike, but trying to find one, especially local, in my size is an exercise in futility
