Hey guy's/gal's,
Just finished building and sorting out my new to me SCOTT CR1 Pro 61cm. 16.06 lbs. (Not too bad) I have 3 set's of wheels. With 2009 Easton EA90SLX differnt tires is about 15.30lbs including pedals.

First off, this is my 1'st Carbon Road Bike after 30 plus years of riding. I've been a steel, aluminum hold out. I also ride a CAAD7 Cannondale for the past 7 years. Got tired of the harsh ride.

I must say, I absolutley love this bike. It's flawless. I can't find anything wrong with it.

I've since put on about 200 or so miles on it in the last week.

I'm 42, and 6'4" at about 235lbs. With about 10-12% body fat. (Still working on the weight). Anyway, I was a bit concerned about going carbon, so I resisted at first. Now I realize it was futile.

Here's my spec. Note I built it up myself off ebay and other online purchases.
I have a crappy scale, so I'm might be off a few grams, but mostly accurate.

Thank you! I strongly recommend this bike for a larger rider looking for a carbon/comfortable ride. It's very fast. I've not noticed any decrease in performance over my standard geometry framesets. Ride is smooth as well. (Wheels have a lot to do with it, but frame wise, no fishtailing, flexyness whatso ever).

Hey Zuppy51

I'm considering this bike and it just so happens I currently ride a Cannondale caad8. I'm an inch shorter than you and thought I'd be testing a 58. Wondering what size cannondale you were riding?
