My Main Squeeze

28 Jul

Okay, Mark is my main squeeze,
 but my main bike is my 2005 Scott CR1 Pro.

My Scott is the most expensive bike I have ever owned – also the best bike I’ve ever owned.  I got a great deal on Ebay.  It was a scary proposition buying a bike on Ebay, but it worked out as promised (a basically new bike with few miles owned by someone that the bike didn’t quite fit).  Thankfully, Rocket fit me perfectly and enabled me to get a good quality bike for the $$ I wanted to spend.

Did you say you would like to see pictures of her?

Look at that beautiful carbon fiber frame. 

I just read an article about one of the bikes used at the Tour – a bike that cost upwards of $15,000!  Can you imagine – me either!

    WOW! Rocket is a beauty!!!! What great luck finding such a beautiful bike. So how does (he?) ride?

    She rides great. She loves to climb, I don’t – but she does ;), she’s light and a bit twitchy on descents which took some getting used to. I love the Campagnolo Centaur. It also took some getting used to, but I love it now. If I could, I would have Campy on every bike.

    I’ve heard Campy is great! I’m so glad you have her. What a sweet find!!! Enjoy!

    Carbon fiber is the cat’s meow. Or is is the bee’s knees”?

    Being a cat person, I guess I would have to lean towards carbon fiber being the cat’s meow – it’s great stuff either way. 🙂
