I wouldn't imagine you would.
Why are you changing? I have the Team Issue.

there seems to be some confusion on the weight limit's. I talked with my shop and they said 220lb frame and fork.

Saw another post on a different forum at 220lb.

Anybody got anything from scott direct?

Dear Michael,

We have tested the CR 1 SL fork up to 110 kg without problem but which such a light fork I would not use it in your case ,I would use the normal CR 1 Team Issue fork which the best choice in your case.

Best regards

Hermann Hermann Pacal [hermann.pacal@scott-sports.com]


I told him I was 91kg (I'm 80) but wanted Idea

Does it give us a limit - no so it's up to each person I guess

another reply from Hermann. Great customer service from Scott Europe

Quote:
Michael,

This fork we use for uphill TT on Giro and Tour de France and other big race's some people use it also on super light bikes with 5 or 6 kg weight target.

You can check out the Fork test at http://www.efbe.de/defbefrm.htm and it was tested up to 110 kg so you can use it but the riding performance in your case is much better with CR 1 Team Issue fork we at Scott use it only for special races and super light bikes.

We have also some customers over 90 kg which use the SL fork and the are happy,I have 74 kg and use the normal CR 1 Team Issue fork and feel great in down hills and corners.

Hope to answer all your questions.

Best regards

Hermann

Right now I'm not able to upload pics... but it looks like the one from Nino. See separate thread. As soon as I find some webspace to upload some pics, I will post the link. http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=13407

The only difference are the following parts:

- crank set: FSA Superlight (518g)
- bottom bracked: frm isis 108mm (132g)
- pedals: syntace eggbeater tripple (184g)
- wheels: mavic ksyrium 03' (1576g)
- tires: conti 3000 (black)
- chain: campa ultra (242g)
- saddle: gipiemme stealth 124g max (147g)

- cassette: btp alloy (118g) 11-25
