finally-my 12.3 lbs Scott C1 Roadbike...
I finally finished my roadbike.well - almost.i still have a few things left but it's ready for the first ride IF weather gets better.it just snowed yesterday and temperatures are only a hair above freezing so not really what you are looking for when going at speed.
life it looks scary fast! too bad there was no sun when i took the picture but there is none...in the sun you see the carbonfibre shine all over.looks cool
still no fancy tubular carbon wheels. I use my bike as "everyday" trainingsbike and such wheels aren't what you would use there.but i still have plans on getting some in the near future.the bike demands such wheels...needless to say they would drop another 300-400g (1 lbs) overall.

nice, really really nice!
congrats on your build, surely rides like a dream....
lightweight wheels and ax AX combo would make it my ultimate dreambike *sigh*
wheather sucks here too, last week 15-22 degrees, this week only snow and rain
one more thing:
- have you tried the M2racer crankarms? and what about their pedals?
- why dont you get rid of the aheadset cap?
I didnt know that stuff was available yet. Oh ya, nino, that bike is hot!

Why is everyone getting a black bike?? Arrrggg!! Black is back.
there's better stuff to come...
i will upgrade to even lighter cranks by this summer...
and the pedals are sure nice BUT the Speedplays work awesome for me.
i still like to have a a-headcap in place.it looks better.maybe i'll get that Schmolke carbon bap (5g) but i won't ride without.
strip it down
That's all I can say.....wow.
There's nothing like having the world under your wheels......
that is some serious weight-weenism. i love it, great job with the selection of parts-most of which i've never seen before. would sure help my climbing-let us know how it holds up.
try driving your car less
you should get fenders, a rack, and a kickstand. that would about double the weight.
12.3 lbs is craziness. which can be good thing.
Only boring people get bored.
The Scmolke top cap would would help to continue the carbon theme. Mine weighed 6g for a steerer internal diameter size of 24mm. The Ax-lightness post should weigh under 120g for the size you need. Just watch out for the lower part of the seat clamp, mine had a slightly different radius as compared to the top of the seatpost. Have you considered the Ax-lightness brakes which should be available soon? A Tune skyline wheelset would look great with the crabon frame. Give us your ride impressions when you manage to get out on the bike. I am considering getting one of those frames myself.
> Tubes: Continental Supersonic 102
These are ok, but I would definetely put on Hutchinson Latex tubes. These are declared 55g each but you can probably get som elighter, they are comfortable, roll fast and don't puncture.
The only trick is that you have to put them on carefully, so that the are not twisted, other wise they can get a hole right after inflating close to the valve.
Nice bike, especially the frame.
I have campy record 9 spd on my TCR and am considering upgrading to 10 spd, do you think it makes sense? I have 12-23 cassette, my bike is not crazy light, but at 8kgs with a few heavy parts (time pedals, crap saddle)
Greetings from Poland
well - if you have 10s now you need quite a lot of parts to upgrade to 10s:
-Ergopowers (or at least the internals)
if it's worth it depends on your needs.i like the closer spaced gearing on my roadbike and 10s definitely helps you getting the gears closer OR it allows you to have your current gears AND an additional low or high gear.
Any place in the US to buy that frame/fork?
Is the headset specific to the frame/fork?
not for another six months or so. Scott bikes aren't available in the US, but they will be in the fall.

for best prices on Scott try Tilo from Tilosshop.com in Germany.
tell him Nino sent you!!
suggested retail prices SANS 16% german TAX:
CR 1 Team Issue frame without fork 1637,93 Euro
CR 1 Fork Team Issue 344,83 Euro
CR 1 Fork Superlight 387,93 Euro
ask Tilo for best prices.he has by far the best deals on Scott!
and remember the standard fork is not the "superlite" which i have.the standard fork weighs ca. 370g.
That thing is Beautiful
But i have to ask how stable it is at speed and is there noticable flex when out of the saddle. This coming from a ol guy who like to haul on descents.

here's the test i was talking about:
chips & bier
A work of art, Nino...
It's an amazing machine, no doubt. I do wonder: how is it riding the drops without tape? I considered doing this when I built up my new road bike (the other test winner
- but not nearly as light), but I thought it'd probably be awful on bad roads. Have you put in any miles yet?
well - actually it's more because of the look that i put it not on the drop bars.the carbon fibres shine all over the frame,saddle and handlebar so i wanted to see more of them on the bar too.i still try to find my perfect body position on that bike and that's why you see a 2 cm spacer unde the handlebar too.i usually don't use spacers there but since i rarely hold on the drop bars i thought i give it a try and raise it a little bit.feels very comfortable and now i finally can ride longer on the drop bars...but i guess i will have to put some bartape.not because of shockabsorbtion (remember, carbon bars take out the sharpest hits anyway) but because with my fullfinger gloves i was sliding and didn't have a good enough grip.
i will ride it with a lower position today and see what i like better...
Nice bike Nino. Even though it's heavier I still prefer the aero looking fork. It makes the design look more balanced.
i agree on the "ugly" joint from fork to frame BUT as a real weight-weenie i had to get the superlite.the standard aero fork is not only rather heavy but also unforgiving which was tested in german TOUR magazine in a carbon fork comparison test.there's only a handful of carbon forks that really take full advantage of carbon fibre.not only has a fork to be light but it also has to absorb a certain amount of shocks and vibrations.carbon is the ideal material because you could actually have strenght and give where you want it to have but only a couple of forks do that.most are too stiff and translate too much in the riders hands.
the Scott superlite is one of those better forks, the standard isn't.
