    Fortunately there is a simple, no cost solution here.

    Borrow a buddies fancy clipless pedals, just for pics, and return.
    Post on Hot or Not and enjoy as the "Hot" votes pile up.

    Ray, I'm glad you got your fancy bike and are enjoying it. Thanks for posting your story too! I plan to still be rolling and kicking strong (TKD) when I reach your age... which isn't all that long...

    Haha Dman, my comment was just a joke. No one would spend $77,000 on a bike... right Ray?

    I understand how a person of your weight could find a specific bike too flexible.

    What I don't understand is how an increase of one or two pounds could be felt as "too heavy".

    BINGO! This is why I believe that if the OP cared to inform the right people at Scott, he would be compensated pronto.

    I hate to point out the obvious, but you could have bought a $77,000 bike instead.

    Hi Romans. The lack of responses seems to indicate you are in uncharted territory here. Maybe just get the drop down bar ends and start experimenting. First see if you even like the new positions...

    How's your physical recovery coming along? Very well, I hope. That's way more important than all that other stuff.

    I wouldn’t be so sure that Scott would not want to compensate Monster for his actual loss at the hands of their agent. Right now, he has a tarnished opinion of the company as a whole... as will...

    Now I want Monster to pursue this just to see the outcome. I believe compensation would be available to him if he put forth a little effort. It might not even take making a big stink about it.

    I don't think I've ever seen bar ends on in reverse before. Did you try them the normal forward direction and not like 'em that way?
  14. Has Your Commuter Bike Been Optimized for You?

    For comfort and/or efficiency?

    It seems most riders will make at least a few modest modifications or upgrades to their bikes. Some can’t stop!

    Do you have plans to upgrade or modify your bike?...

    It makes the ride more uncomfortable because you'll always be wondering if and when it's going to snap.

    This is silly. Any reputable company (and I believe Scott is) would bend over backwards to satisfy a customer and/or protect their reputation. ESPECIALLY if they knew the person who felt wronged was...

    No MRT2, you are not leading anyone astray.

    The truth is both are fine bikes, just like every other name brand, non department store bike. They are all very competitive at the same price point....

    Are you sure those aren't the same bike with different decals? :p

    8 vs. 9 speed is certainly not a deal breaker. Also, all those hubs, shifters and other running gear will work flawlessly and...

    Most of the people I know who don't cycle much will only ride on paths or trails, not roads. Fixing that is what it will take.

    Ride faster and cry is my strategy. So far, so good!

    I missed two full weeks of bicycle commuting due to the weather. The forecast for this morning was 8 degrees, a bit cooler than I prefer, but with a mild tail wind. Yay! I'm back! :)
