Matte balck anodization. They ride fast, great, and responsive.
The shop owner has an "A" bike built up with primo equipment and it weighs i a tad over 15lbs. A typical build with 105 probably about 17.5~18lbs.
Is this from your team shop?
This looks like a sweet deal for $999
I may drive up to Sac this weekend to check it out.
Now I'm torn between the Scott and the 2007 Felt F1X for around 1200, but there are a few differences. The Felt has a carbon fork, an Ultegra rear derailleur, and 46/36 chain rings.
The Scott is all 105 with 53/39 chainrings and an Al fork.
I definitely would prefer the campact chainrings, so I could go with 11-23 cogs.
Any idea which frame is better?
