    Smile MY test ride on a Scott CR1 team issue

    WEll some basic facts first, i'm 215lbs, 6'2" tall, and love to sprint and power. I have 15 years on the bike and now race mostly cyclocross and MTN, but still train mostly on the road. My rep came by and i got to take this out for a hour ride on my favorite roads.
    First this is a LIGHT bike. We weighted twice and the 56cm size came in at 14.5 sans pedals. This is about 4 lbs lighter than my OCLV. I looked it over, it is flawless. THe carbon weave is just unbelievable. Fit and finish was perfect. But how would it ride?
    Well let me tell you, we sell C-dale, SPecialized, Bianchi,and i own a Trek OCLV. This thing was as stiff as a C-dale. It flat out bolted when i put pedal to the metal. I'm big, bad for climbing, good for going fast ina straight line. I honked on this bike as much as i could, looking for front chain rub, or any sigh of flex. If its there, i couldnt find it. It was like riding a rocket sled, you pedal, and it goes. Over some rough, it seemed to absorb well, however i don't know how it would ride over the long ride.
    Now at 4500.00??? or there abouts, this is a expensive bit of eye candy. The thing i was not happy with was the 3 year warrenty. I have a OCLV that is 6 going on 7 years old and still looks new. I would love to buy a bike like this and ride it for the long haul, however the thought of a frame failure at year 4 not being covered is scary. Guess my pockets arnt deep enough. However i can say that it was like driving a ferrari, it really is a fast, fast bike. Perhaps if i was serious racing again, no problem. Still glad to have a chance to ridden it.

    Are you in the US?

    I heard it was stiff. Maybe rated the stiffest of all bikes, but I thought you can't get it in the US.
