Looking at buying a Scott CR1Pro 09 model with Ultegra grpset. Can anyone who has one pass on their views on the bike?

    Its a beauty of a bike a real punchy performer whilst being comfortable on all day rides.
    Its extremely light and handles well.
    Downside is it doesnt have a fancy Italian name on the frame.
    Also it does not have a replaceable rear hanger.
    Scott will sort the frame in the event of an accident.They are great at honouring the warranty.

    how do you fine the geometry? Is it a more relaxed, aimed at long distance riding - I guess it's less aggressive than the Addict. I believe I may get more bang for my buck with this than with more coveted brands (Bianchi etc...) and get better wheels for the money saved.

    I built up a 2009 CR1 as my summer bike so havent done many miles on it yet, but i gave it 10 miles today in the sun and instantly it felt much better than my Ribble. Super light, responsive, comfortable yet stiff. It makes me smile every time i get on it. The geometry isn't as aggressive as the Addict, but it's still a racer. I think the 2010 CR1 has had the geometry changed to make it more comfortable over long distance, but i'll stick with my 2009 for a while. Only downside is the non-replaceable derailleur hanger.

    I don't think you'd be dissapointed :)

    hmmm - interesting video, thanks. Certainly seems to be a good climbing bike and very light too.

    The CR1 Pro climbs brilliantly. Took mine (2006 model) out on the Surrey Rumble today. As stated above, stiff and very responsive. Great bike.
    FCN 2-4.
