    2013 Scott Speedster 20

    Wanted a new bike , a true all road bike. So I purchased a 2013 Scott Speedster 20, got a good price , went to clipless pedals. Have fallen over 4 times due to not being used to the pedals, but getting better. Had to replace the stock saddle with a Selle SMP TRK. It is the same saddle on my old bike , and fits me well. Bike is smooth to ride, and ascends well.Not in love with descending, as not used to being so far forward on the bars for breaking. Finding bike is a lot faster then my old bike , as times on my mapped rides are falling. It came with a 50/ 34 front gears, and I have found I can turn 50-12 pretty easy on flat. Overall I love this bike, it is just what I wanted , thought about a 2013 Giant Defy 1 , but they were sold out, and LBS guy told me I'd have to wait until Sept /Oct for him to get any 2014's in, went to other LBS and they could get a Scott in a week, so Scott was the choice. Being that I try and ride 1000 miles a month , this bike makes that challenge a lot easier.

    Congrats on the new bike, Buildingmaint!
    A chromoly steel bicycle will last just as long as titanium, if kept dry.
