Does anybody have a pic of Scott C1 Team Issue fitted with light fork (295g one) and not with "aero fork"?
Is "light fork" manufactured directly by Scott or is a someone-else relabeled fork?
Thank You, Bye.
Benz.

I had this bike already in my hands. :(
Uhh,i t´s really ugly, with the thick downtube and the thin fork. With the aero fork it looks better. For integrated headsets the Easton EC90 looks better.

There is a test in the german TOUR magazin.

The Easton EC 90slx was the lightest fork with 315g. The tested Scott C1 Aero, not the light one ,was 468g :(
The measured flex of the schott C1:
side 36,5N/mm, steerer 3968 N/mm, braking 71,3 N/mm, comfort/damping 70,5 N/mm

EC 90 slx:
side 33,8 N/mm, steerer 3154 N/mm, braking 70,3 N/mm, comfort 70,4 N/mm.

The Easton is just a little less stiffer, but a lot lighter than the C1 Aero. So I assume that the Scott light is less rigid than th Ec 90

how stiff is the ec90 slx compared to the regular ec90, and other currently used forks?

where did you get these measurements from? do you have them stiffness measurement for the giant fork that comes with the tcr frameset?

by the way the new storck forks have new weights:
Stiletto Light: Sub 280gram, 1 1/8" Ahead, carbon fork / carbon steerer tube.
Stiletto: Sub 330gram, 1 1/8" Ahead, carbon fork / carbon steerer tube.

Now its official tested and proofed. The Scott Cr1/C1 is the best carbon frame out there. In the magazin "Tour" they tested 20 different carbon frames. The scott got the victory followed by the the new Time carbon frame.

No offence but cycling magazine reviews are becoming a joke, you only have to pick up a copy of Cycling Weekly in the U.K. to see what I mean. They are ussually good for using as toilet paper, and I will never base anything on them.

as I said, tests are only good for the moment, but not ideally for the everyday life.
The Scott C1 is one of the best frames you can drive (Stiffness and weight). But one unfortunate fall can break the too thin-walled downtube (1.5mm?) :cry:
