no carbon MTB this year although the ultralight Scott Scale frame is the lightest but as stated many times such a bike will become heavier than by using the "old" scandium frames because of several parts that you need to use (cables,seatpost,f-derailleur...)

nevertheless - i still have a new 05 Scott Limited in my stable:
my new custom built 2005 CR1 Limited tips the scales at under 12 lbs. not bad considering the fact it still uses clincher wheels/tires. a nice tubular wheelset with tubular tires easily will bring it sub 5 kilos. as shown below it weighs 100g more as in the listing because of the CR420 wheels but they look cool...

my climbing speed went up 2 km/h (16 km/h instead of 14 on a climb) compared to my winterbike i used over the past months with the same wheels. i will have to check my position on the winterbike once again but if there's no difference it's the 2 kilos less weight that make for all the difference...

Awesome stuff! Yet again:)

What ever happened to the 'old' roadie?
i was able to sell my 04 CR1 frameset in november at a good price. that's why i had to build myself that "winterbike", a hybrid cyclocross-MTB-roadbike. it served my all winter long as a MTB when there was snow and ice and mud and lately i used it on the road too while waiting for the 05 frameset.

parts used are most the same than last year already.only mimimal changes to last years setup:

awesome build man - i love it

as for the saddle, where are they available ? and are they ok for mtb use ? or is their a slightly heavier/beefier mtb version ?

-Cab
that's the Tune concorde. NO MTB for this paperweight saddle! it's th3e most comfortable saddle i ever threw a leg over. the shell is even flexier than that of the AX-Lightness saddles. seems strange at first and i had to adjust saddle height a bit because it would flex to a big degree when sitting on it.
there's many online stores in europe selling it...starbike.com comes to my mind.

pictures below are from a pre-production saddle i got last year. one of the very few saddles that weighed sub 40g. well - it didn't last too long. the actual production version weighs 45g.

Nice. But I don't get why you'd put bar tape on the flats and not on the drops. If it were my bike, I would place the bar tape on the drops since you apply more pressure to your hands when in the drops.

Sorry if this is a bumb question, but..

What is different about the 2005 frame compared to the 2004?

nice!!! one problem is, how do you take a bike like that into town? if someone stole the seatpost assembly alone you would be down several hundred dollars...

maybe you should add the weight of a hefty lock to your estimate!

Ni Nino, Very nice bike indeed. But please take off the stickers from the wheelset. to make it more easy on the eyes...
i know, i know.... the lettering all over the bike is what i also don't like too much but since i want to sell the wheels per end of the year i might have to leave it as is. but i already tried with photoshop how it would look like (see below) and the 2nd wheelset i have with FRM hubs has the tiny CR350 rims without letters. anyway - i don't get it why some product designers plaster parts all over with logos. the Look fork had 3 different style of letters all over the place, some even in red! i already covered some of those letters with fake carbon tape.

carbon look...

it's mainly because of the nice look of the Schmolke carbon handlebars. i don't ride that much on the drops and since i have good gloves i don't need the cushion. the Schmilke bar itself is very shock-absorbing too so no problems there. and i cover the top since riding on the hoods is what is done most and while climbing i want the grip on the upper bar. but if it were just a plain black handlebar it would be covered everywhere for sure;)

the decals?

no, honestly, i cant' tell much difference other than the outer carbon weave now is kind of fancy+disco-like (i prefer the "real" stuff though) and the rear dropout now is also slightly different than last year. weight is still the same.

Fair enough. I never looked at it from that point of view. Makes sense.
