Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

My Two New Builds w/ Pics…Record Cervelo RS and Scott CR1 Frankenclimbingbike…

I waited 192 days for the RS to come in and was going to make it my climbing bike. Unfortunately the triple did not fit on the Squoval seat tube. So the Record group was stripped off the Scott and put on the Cervelo and the Scott was made into the climbing bike...

Both bikes are plenty stiff for this 135 lb middle aged lightweight. I think the Scott may be a little more forgiving over rough pavement even with the RS curved seatstays but neither beats me up. The Cervelo descends a little better. With the Cervelo, it is easy to change lines around a corner at 40 mph and remains very stable. The Scott is also stable but wants to carve a turn and does not change its line easily. Both climb exceptionally well, but unfortunately, neither makes me a better climber. Right now, I favor the Cervelo. It is prettier and covered with Italian bling (I also like Campagnolo better than Shimano) but the Scott is going to bring me results in the hillclimb races...


2008 Cervelo RS...Size 51...Record groupset...50/34 crankset with 13/29 cassette...3T Funda Pro fork...3T Rotundo Team bar...FSA OS 115 stem...Thomson Masterpiece seatpost...Easton Ascent II wheelset...15.4 pounds as shown (16.0 pounds with the PowerTap rear wheel)...















2006 Scott CR1 Pro frame...Size 52...Ultegra right shifter/Dura Ace left shifter...FSA SLK compact bars...Ritchie WCS stem...Thomson Materpiece seatpost...Ultegra crank arms/spider with TA chainrings 48/38/26...Dura Ace Octalink BB...Ultegra SL brakes...IRD Alpina FD...Shimano XTR RD...PowerTap rear hub laced to DT Swiss RR1.1 rim (I switch out the freehub between the Campy and Shimano setups)...17.7 pounds in race configuration with the 11/34 cassette on the PowerTap wheel...

This bike will be used for long rides over major climbs using a 12/26 cassette and the Northeast hillclimb races (Whiteface, Okemo, Ascutney, Equinox, Washington and Burke) using an 11/34 cassette...

Really nice bikes, both, but the Cervelo definitely has a much bigger wow factor.

It's hot.

Nice bikes-Do you find the 13 on the cassette too big on the RS? I have an 11 and still wind it out on slight inclines.(also 50/34 on the ft)
Edit Slight declines

Sweet rigs. Very sweet. Do you ever get a funny look from having a triple on a CR1?

The handlebar on the RS looks a little off centered.

The RS looks to me like a better climbing bike (as it's built up above) than the Scott. How do you like the 3T fork so far?

Yes, I spin out on the 13 quite often but coasting is a lot easier than walking up a hill (I need the 29 on some of the hills around here)...

This kept me up at night...Fixed now...Thanks...

Honestly, I could not tell you...It was all bought separately...Some of it through dealers I know...Some used in good shape...If I add it all up and my wife reads it I will not be here any more...Lets say a few thousand...

Tip of saddle 2.0 - 2.5 cm behind BB...Not UCI legal but I have a waiver...
