    Hello from Jacksonville Beach, FL . Scott CR1 Elite VS Specialized Rouba SL4 Sport

    I have a base model aluminum Motobecane road bike that I have enjoyed a lot as a starter bike, but now that I am biking more often and longer distances. I want to get a better smoother and faster bike so I have been shopping local bike shops and I found a 58cm Scott CR1 Elite on sale for $1800 it was $2600 , but I was also looking at a Specialized Roubaix SL4 Sport 105 . Does anyone have any recommendation on which is a better bike ? Thanks any recommendations would be great.

    Jeff, not sure what model Scott you have but can you help this person?

    When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. Arthur Conan Doyle

    I don't think you could go wrong with either bike...but I really like the Roubaix as it fits me better, until I saw the final price....ouch. How much for the Roubaix?
