Hello all,

finally here to introduce myself, and, more importantly :beerchug: , my bike. My name is Martijn, i'm from the Netherlands and this is my Scott CR1. Its a 2008 frame equipped with full Dura-Ace 7800, 3T funda fork (thanx to Toutenhoofd!), Ambrosio crono F20/Dura-ace 7800 wheels, Pro Vibe seatpost, Fizik Aliante saddle, Easton EA90/EA70 stem/bar setup, Dura-ace pedals and Tune cages. Training wheels are Shimano Ultegra WH6600. I'm not sure about the weight yet as i dont have scale at my disposal, i'm guessing somewhere in the lower 7 kilos region (anybody to confirm that adding the part list?)

As for updates for 2010 i'm thinking of a black Pro Stealth Evo combo, white Aliante (perhaps carbon) saddle and some new cages (i'm not very fond of the Tune cages, bottles are always stuck in them :oops: )

I hope to show my Cannondale F2000 (raw colour/xtr) mountainbike and Empella Bonfire crossbike also in the near future, when i've been able to take pictures of them.

Great bike!!

But I like when saddle and bar tape are of the same colour. Personnal taste, maybe...
For the weight, every good bike shop has a proper scale. Juste ask them to weight your racer!
:D

Thanx Joni, same here, white saddle will match the bartape and the large Scott decals nicely i think so i will probably get me a white Aliante for 2010 (in fact, i already took the black one off, it's now on my mtb. For the time being i have a cheap white BBB saddle mounted which looks great).

I feel a bit disturbed of going to my lbs to weigh the bike for me as i didn't buy the bike there :wink: I think i will get myself a scale sometime soon.

Great! Post us a picture with the white saddle!

I didn't have my bike weighted where I bought it. Just went to the shop and asked them to weight my bike. They kindly accepted and it took them 1 minute. If you feel bad, well buy a water bottle, a tire tube or some other cheap part.... :wink:

Very nice, classy race bike with those low profiled ambrosio rims! But as others have pointed - this bike needs white saddle :D

Allright, allright, no need to push here 8) Just have patience, the white saddle will come.

Hello everyone,

so, finally took pictures of my updated bike, as shown in the opening post. Changed saddle for a white Aliante with carbon rail and inserts, changed bar/stem combo to a Pro Stealth combo (thanx to fellow member tigra the cat) and changed the bottlecages to Chinese ones from Ebay. I also took pictures of my other bike, see below;

Cannondale F2000SL:

frame: 2005 Optimo F2000 SL
shifting/brakes: Shimano XTR
crank: FSA Omega carbon compact 46/34
wheels: XTR/DT4.2 with Rocket Ron front/Racing Ralph rear with Stan's Notubes
other parts: KCNC post/barends/chainring bolts/no-name handlebar/Aliante saddle/XT pedals

Empella Bonfire CX bike:

frame: 2001ish WC edition (after Erwin Vervecken's wc title) with Alpha Q 1" fork
shifting/brakes: Ultegra SL shifters/Dura-Ace 7700 rear derailleur/RSX front derailleur/Frogglegs
crank: no-name with Ultegra Octalink bb
wheels: Dura-Ace/Ambrosio Ecxellence/Racing Ralph
other parts: Easton EA50 bar/stem/Pro xlt post/Aliante Gamma XM saddle/XT pedals

I hope i can add some weights in my next update, and some better (daylight) pictures, as the turned out to be quite crappy.

Cheers :beerchug:
