I'm talkin' more along the lines of: I want to ride a badass SCOTT bike like Cav.
And, my friends, I'm pretty sure that is a possibility. While it won't exactly be like his, it'll still be a solid machine.
I've been riding for about a year now and it's safe to say I love the sport. I like the downhill, the flat and, yes, even the climbing sometimes. With that in mind, I think I'm ready to move up a notch.
The good ol' Trek 1.2 I have now in Gainesville has served me well and done a great job as an entry level bike.
But I think it's time for TWO great changes:
- Going full carbon and
- Changing the crankset from a triple to a double
And the bike I've been looking at fits both of those requirements. It's a 2010 Scott CR1 Comp. Let me introduce you:
Beautiful, no? And I'm pretty sure I can get a decent price for it.
I still have yet to test ride the bike but that will be remedied sometime next week once I get my suitcase back from Dusseldorf Airport...All of the cycling shorts I own are in that one piece of luggage. Very valuable suitcase.
Until then, I'm going to dream about the stiff carbon frame and the smooth shifting.
