Scott CR1 Team Bike

I'm thinking of getting the Scott CR1 Team Bike w/ Dura-ace. Any thoughts on this bike?

I currently ride a Trek 5200 w/ Ultegra and average about 200miles/week.

Thanks!
-Darren

Only negative comment that I've ever read was that you need to be careful tightening down the components - use a torque wrench (in case that wasn't already obvious).

Otherwise, drop dead gorgeous.

It's great if you're one of the 70% of people that can squeeze vaguely correctly onto 5 sizes of frames.

Whats the retail on the Scott?

LBS in DC has Team [edit: Team Issue] (Dura Ace) version for $4500, I think Bothell Ski and Bike will sell for even less over internet.

The 105 version goes for ~$2000 on sale and has full 105 (even 105 brakes). Wheels are K Equipes.

Not a bad deal for that model.

For some reason the ultegra 6600 version is $1400 more and has K elites instead of Euipes. Same frame and fork though. Only team issue and limited have the 100 gram lighter frame.

6 big ones eh? That's nuts. I could do a custom ti or perhaps even full carbon with DA for that sort of cash.

Ahhhh, the beauty of buying direct.

retail is anywhere from 4,000 - 5,000

i've tested a 56 a few times and loved it. seems like a good combination of stiffness and comfort. the lightness is an obvious bonus. stock version comes with sl wheelset which is great!

thanks for the comments/suggestions.

I have one. It's a great bike. I'm really happy with it. Most of the comments above are correct with the exception of the $6000 price tag. I've never seen it that high. It should be between $4500 and $4800. I wasn't a great fan of the SLR saddle that came on it, so I changed that to an Arione. It is extremely light and stiff. It goes down a hill on rails. It is an excellent climbing bike. It's not the most comfortable carbon frame you can get, so if you're doing a lot of century type rides, you may be able to find something better. That said, I've done several centuries on it. I'm consistently asked about it on group rides, so it's an eye-catcher too. If you do get one, you'll enjoy it.

Cheers,

CJ

3k for the centaur version, I think it has ksyrium elites

nice bike, the lack of a replaceable derailleur hanger would concern me

original warranty was 30 days, now it's 5 years

they have several at a local shop, nice looking ride

You can always get flexier wheels to help this. Kyrsriums are pretty stiff so no doubt this would not be too hard to improve on.

Bikes have no supspensions so you are kind of screwed when it comes to living with flex or not. (depends on where flex is and how it affects pedaling,etc)

I don't see them. 105 version is cheap enough and the build kit is has is stronger than the usual 105 kits you see on OEM bikes.

What is the deal on the frame? Are all the CR1 frames the same or do the upper levels get something different besides just the paint. On the Scott site the Team Issue frame and fork is $2913.99 MSRP but the Team (complete bike with 105) is only $2308.99. Can't at all be the same frame right?

Team Issue and Limited are 100 grams lighter. I'd take the regular CR-1 frame anyway unless I was Cat 1 racing in super climbing endurance events.

IMO the Limited frame looks better than that yellow team issue one. In fact, I like the team (white lettering) better than the team issue also.

I have ridden this bike and it handles like a racer but has enough CF vibe to keep you in the game for long rides...

If it was me, I'd build one up with CF Chorus instead of DA...but that's just me

It's amazing what 100 grams will cost you.

I often (sadly, it is often) wonder whether the same thing isn't going on with the Madone 5.2SL and the Madone 5.9SL. There's a price gap there that can't be justified by the components. Maybe the in spec frames become 5.9's and the slightly heavy frames become 5.2's.

I have the 105 version CR-1 and it is a great bike. I couldn't pass up the deal REI had some months ago $2,099 minus 20% on their annual sale = ~$1,700. I have about 1,000 miles on the bike and have ridden the stock Equipes that come with it and a set of Velocity Aeroheads. The Aeroheads are lighter with a bit more flex than the Equipes so I can change the wheels out to suit the mileage and terrain of the rides. Just did a century on the bike and it was a great ride (5 hrs 29 min). I am 5' 11" and ride the Large (virtual 56 cm) but I had to change the stem (110 mm) out for a 90 mm. The saddle was also bogus so I switched out for a Terry Ti Fly.

If you want a $6000 bike go for it. Life's short, and you can't take it (money) with you.

CHEERS.

Mark

BTW The Scott's look very sweet!
