2011/2013 Scott CR1 Pro HMF - my new road racing bike build and rides story


For several years I've been searching high and low for a carbon fibre frameset for my
new road bike build, but in vain. At one point, I even very nearly ordered a "Chinarello".
Luckily, good things come to those who wait!

Image

And all the wait has been worthwhile as in Summer of 2012 my friends from Planet Bike
provided me with an opportunity to purchase a brand-new-in-box 2011 Scott CR1 Pro HMF
frameset. Eventhough I've originally had a vision of a white colour for my new bike,
Scott's minimalistic half-stealth matt black appearance has quickly grown on me.

Image

I've had a lot of time to figure out the required frame size and since I fall somewhere
between L/56 and XL/58 - in the end I went for L/56, as all manufacturers seem to make
XL frames with very long head tubes.


I was very excited to have started my new road bike build at long last. The very first step
- unpacked and put on the scales, of course.

Image

The verdict was 967 grams! I was amazed at how much material weighs so little and carries
so much weight and various forces on its "shoulders", while being much stiffer than
an aluminium frame at the same time. Just over 1013 g with the rest of hardware that's
going on the frame.


I was happy with the fork weight as well, at 379 g uncut.

Image


In the photo gallery, you can find photos of the paintwork, matt UD carbon fibre, details etc.

I've initially had a plan to hunt for carefully selected bargains of lightest components I could get,
but ease of servicing and local availability prevailed, therefore I got a complete Shimano Ultegra 6700
groupset, including wheelset, instead.

Image


For a complete list of components with weight information and my comments about alternative component choice,
please visit my gallery at http://photos.cybernck.com/cyber1?page=2

Image Image Image


Then my usual bike builder Nikola (Sokovic Sport) got it all together. That's as much as we could do in 2012,
as I've still had to purchase all the other parts required for the build.

I came back from the winter preparation camp at the end of February 2013 and the remaining parts
were here waiting for me - excellent! Starting with the 268 g (280 g quoted) PRO Vibe 7s 44 cm
(42 c-c) handlebars. Notice the continuous width, for added stiffness.

Image Image

The perfect companion for the handlebars - 143 g PRO Vibe 7s 130 mm stem with V-profile for maximum
stiffness of the cockpit.


For the seatpost, the choice came down to Fizik's Cyrano Carbon, 400 mm long for peace of mind
(330 mm version was right at the limit). Slightly heavy at 245 g, however, it will provide
a perfect fit for the carbon oval-railed saddle.

Image Image

And here's the said saddle - a 180 g Fizik Arione CX Braided, with 7x9 mm oval rails.
Reasonably light and very comfortable!


My favourite tyres - Continental GP 4000s, 23 mm wide - 209 g each. You can check out photos
and weights of Continental Race 28 inner tubes, Elite Custom Race bottle brackets, Jagwire
inner and outer cables and RSP chain catcher in my gallery.

Image Image

I also got a cheap set of all-weather training wheels, in the form of Shimano RS10 wheelset,
1910 g without skewers.


Then it was time to put it all together!

I love the matte paint on the frame. Did you weight the completed bike?

I've taken care of the details, so everything on the bike is matte, apart from Ultegra STI glossy levers.

I did vaguely weigh it, but I will do some better calculations and measurements soon. In fact, I'll sum it all up here.

Thanks.

The final touch was adjusting the riding position and wrapping the handlebars in Deda lime green bar tape.
I was originally thinking of going for silver tape, but in the end I decided to personalise it and add a bit
of contrast using my company's trademark colour.

Final weight (ready to ride) is 7650 grams, with a plan to make it lighter in the future.

Let the rides begin!

6/Mar/2013 - The first outing on Scott CybeR1 went superb, with very nice weather
and a bike that fits me like a glove! Amazing power transfer, yet very comfortable
at the same time. The only thing not quite right was my body weight, with extra
10 kilos of fat on top of my race-ready weight! :-o

Image Image

Since I had been enjoying riding the new bike so much, it was easy to make myself
do numerous long distance rides, burning lots of fat along the way.


During March and April I kept riding, racing...

Image Image

...and riding some more, getting into shape.

27/Apr/13 - The new daily record! Die Neuen Tagesrekord! Hовые ежедневные записи!
新的每日记录! I've successfully completed a 330 km Randonneur type of solo ride in
adverse weather conditions, but the sense of achievement was definitely worth it.

Image


1/Jun/2013 - National Hillclimb Championship. A short and not so hard climb.
I was going into the race as the defending champion, but since I was still
not in the best shape, I came in 2nd placed. However, I was not too bothered
about it, as my main objective for this season was winning an upcoming National
Time Trial Championship.

Image Image


The training continued with focus on the National Time Trial and Road Race
Championship events, scheduled for the end of June.

Super-fit and race ready, having lost 11 kg's of unwanted weight in just four months!

Image


30/Jun/2013 - National Road Race Championship in Bužim, Bosnia & Herzegovina.
Having won the Time Trial National Championship a few days ago, I felt very
relaxed going into the 93 km long demanding and mountainous course.

ImageImage

The race was dynamic and interesting. I got my chance to break from the leading group
with about 20 km's left and rode flat-out to a convincing solo win, 2:20 mins ahead
of the 2nd placer rider (of any category).


Scott CR1 aka CybeR1 did its job just fine!

ImageImage


On top of the podium once again.

Nikica Atlagić - The Champion of Bosnia & Herzegovina for the year of 2013!

Just a quick update this time round :).


As I've rarely been using my Spinergy Rev-X wheels (mostly only the front wheel for Time Trial Championship),
I had decided it was time to let them go and sold them back to the UK. I took them for the last spin on my
road bike and took this photo - which must be a rare photo of Scott CR1 with these wheels on :-).

ImageImage

Continuing with the retro theme - I took a quick shot of the bike together with the infamous twin-Mi16-engined
Peugeot 205 - the 205 Mi32 (http://www.205Mi32.com).

25/Jul/2013 - I took an opportunity for a trip to Sarajevo to make my old wish come true and it was
all about doing a hilly and twisty ride from Sarajevo to Tjentište in National Park Sutjeska and back.
Super-hot and humid day, but the experience was worth it.

ImageImageImage

An important 2nd World War battle was won here (hence the monument in the background), as well as my
today's personal battle. I stumbled upon a memorial to the Slovakian cyclo-tourer who got run over
and killed near Sarajevo, a few years ago. And finally - back to the "base", after 196 km's of riding.

ImageImageImage


26/Jul/2013 - The following day, I had made up a round-trip route that I named "Olympic Mountains ride",
starting at Pale (850 m), then down to Sarajevo (500 m) and then to Hum hill (800 m). After descending
back to Sarajevo, I made a short stop at the spring of River Bosna, along the way to the first of four
Olympic mountains lying ahead of me. The first one was Olympic Mountain Igman, elevation about 1200 m
(with the peak is at about 1500 m), that was a host for ski jump events of 1984 Winter Olympics.

ImageImageImage

Then I proceeded to Olympic Mountain Bjelašnica, where male alpine skiing events were held. I was at
elevation of about 1300 m, with the peak in the background at over 2000 m. Back down to Sarajevo and
then up the Olympic Mountain Trebević and here you can see the only remains of bobsleigh track.

ImageImageImage

On Trebević, at about 1200 m, overlooking the slopes of Jahorina. And finally - Olympic Mountain Jahorina,
host of female alpine skiing events, at nearly 1600 m (with the peak in the background at over 1900 m)
and then back down to Sarajevo - 170 km in total.

10/Sep/2013 - I went on a ride with B&H Youth Cycling Camp, endorsed by French ambassador in B&H, Roland Gilles,
and with a guest presence of his wife, Claudia Carceroni, multiple World Champion title winner.

Image Image Image

A few days later, we've had a promotion of our new club kit. Very bright design, compared to the old one.
Together with French ambassador Roland Gilles and his wife Claudia Carceroni, all of us in new BSK kit.
