yes, but that's a full 180 from what you've been posting about.

Mariner Fan 12-16-05 09:01 PM

SinCity, I don't know..... but I'm thinking you like Scott Bikes! Anyway, it's a beautiful bike, go for it!

Aonbay 12-16-05 09:03 PM

No

Warblade 12-16-05 09:05 PM

umm...picture?

BillyD 12-16-05 09:06 PM

Not especially.

But that's just me.

Warblade 12-16-05 09:07 PM

Good looking but I hope you crash it! There frames break fairly easily.

Patriot 12-16-05 09:18 PM

It's a Centaur group? Not a bad price, but I would upgrade to a matching Centaur carbon crank just for bling.

It's not a looker, but I'd ride it :D

Serpico 12-16-05 09:58 PM

get a waterford

CardiacKid 12-16-05 10:02 PM

In my opinion, the De Rosa you were obsessing on a few weeks ago, is much more attractive

petekalo 12-16-05 10:12 PM

i'd ride it like a hot chick

daytonian 12-16-05 10:23 PM

I like Scott's. You don't seem them on every corner either like Cannondale's and Trek's.

Surferbruce 12-16-05 10:35 PM

among a sea of exotic carbon, the scott looks too generic for me.

duane041 12-16-05 10:59 PM

It's a black bike that says 'Scott' on it. If your name is Scott, you're set.

Forget aesthetics and concentrate in functionality.

Hmm..my bike says Lemond. I should be so lucky to be him. :o

There was a guy on Runner's World shoe forums, 5 years ago, went by the name "Baby Jingles," who was always obsessing about some new running shoes. Kind of the way that you do with bikes, Sin. Except you're a fair bit more knowledgable about bikes than he was about running shoes.

Yeah I know. That Neo Primato and the Waterfords are gorgeous and would both be about $3800 with full Record! I just don't think a steel frame should cost $1800 in the era of carbon -they should be giving them away. I'm inquiring abouit De Bernardi steel frames that are about $450- $1000 andthe Cinelli SuperCorsa is $995 w/fork.

I love bargains, particulary a chance to get a modern weight weenie bike for wholesale -about $2500 if I force the issue. The 06's are about $4000.00

I'll do the taste test on the Scott after my 40 mile group ride tomorrow morning. If the CR1 accelerates like bat out of hell at 4 lbs lighter than my Lemond and the BB isn't flexing all over the place (I'm 195 lbs), I will be very tempted to lay the cash out on that baby! :p

Wow, it really distinguishes itself from all the other carbon fiber bikes out there. How unique!

Sin:

This is so different from the Waterford. What gives, have gone over to the dark side of Plastic? I think I'm going to be sick.

God, I miss running.It's so...cheap. Back then, even the most expensive shoes I could dream about were still cheaper than a Wally-World bike. (Sigh.)

DXchulo 12-17-05 05:16 AM

I have a thing for black bikes, so that bike won me over. I have to agree with Patriot, though. You need a black crank on there.
