Scott CR1 SL bike frames 75% off at Westbrook Cycles - £499 (RRP £2029)

Found 4th Jun 2013
Fantastic deal on one of Scott's top-of-the-range frames. These have been selling like hot cakes (they sold 80 in one day apparently) and have caused quite a stir in the bike community. Mine turned up yesterday and it's amazing - so incredibly light. Includes frame, forks, headset, BB, seat clamp etc. Will take most standard Shimano chainsets.

These have sold out once but are back again so be quick.

Free (fast) delivery.

Not one for the Tesco BSO crowd, I understand, but a fantastic deal for serious road cyclists

Oh lord don't tempt me! I was glad to see these sell out first time.. Rode a 'CR1 pro' hire bike last year, and it was a fantastic ride. HOT.

Oh yes, I want one too

wow, bikes are pricey ! that costs more than my first car and it doesnt even have wheels !

Yes - not cheap - but this is the bike equivalent of a Ferrari at a Ford price.

Is there a guide to the modern bike these days so i can get in the loop? The last bike i had was a chopper and my neighbour had a grifter. Only had 3 gears and didn't cost the price of a car!

Go to the Bikeradar website - lots of informative stuff on there and plenty of forums

you're right you don't.

no more enjoyable to rid to the pie shop than a tesco bike, cold for me


Skoda Vs Ferrari debate, remember on HUKD you're voting about the deal itself not comparing proper road cycling to sub £100 bikes

Red hot! Brand name carbon at no-name Chinese prices. Ordered one to swap as many parts across as I can from my current bike. They also have the Addict for £100 more if you want and even racier bike in Cav rep colours.

I would expect wheels and a seat for a fith less than this

Think I'll pick one up (is two extravagant?) as a spare.

However, round our way all the chavs seem to be kitted out in (fake) Scott bike wear while they are bing-boinging along on their Tesco £29 full suspension BSO's.

Seems to be a brand that is the North Face of the cycling world.

No, I'm pretending I didn't see this. Please pass the mind bleach.
Need a new frame after a nasty crash. But promised the staff in A&E I'd swap over the components to a touring frame.

Noooooooooooooo!
Musssssssssssst Resisssssssssst.

Hot, great deal (Don't need one...Want one tho )

Tempting ,my gear is so old it wouldnt probably ever fit but anyway.


How do they manage to keep going making such vast reducgions ?!

Grrr, must you bring it up here too MRS.

Right. I've heard these things melt in the rain. And you can get full bikes for less. And they'll be common as muck soon anyway.
Get a boardman, or a ribble, or a planet X. Honestly, these are awful...

I ride a Scott CR1 Pro 2012...lovely bike!

Go ahead, pop into Halfords and pick up a shiny new Apollo for £99.99...

...with a toughened steel frame, ABS plastic pedals, lovely bouncy suspension, and not to mention incredible build quality. Not forgetting to mention the weight - they're very heavy - this means you're getting more for your money.

Deal: Hot
People who think all bikes are the same: Not

Hot Hot Hot Hot!!!! Cheers OP.

Yes. That is exactly what it proves.

So how much would it end up costing to make a whole bike using equal quality parts? And is it hard

includes fork and headset? bloody hell. hot.
perfect weather for this too.
i'm guessing budget at least another grand to do this justice?
Edited by: "Smiff" 4th Jun 2013

Very nice indeed. RRP is daft though and to do justice to the frame with decent components will cost you another £2k! It's against the law to stick anything less than Ultegra on this.

Balls, the large is out of stock.

Well, same quality parts is subjective, but this frame was the one on their top of the range 5k bike, so you're talking £1500 for the groupset and the same on the wheels.

Or you could find Ultegra knocking around for ~£600 and have a cracking bike for around £1500-£2000 depending on the wheels and finishing kit. And pay a bike shop £100 to put it together, it's the least it deserves.
Oh yeah, and ride it, it's not worth it if you don't.

hot hot hot

Shimano 105 groupset £400 and a set of mid quality wheels with tyres for about £300 will be a very decent bike.

Sorry, dhope

Yeah - I'm not defending the RRP but this is still an amazing deal. If you've never lifted a carbon frame of this quality (let alone ridden it) you'll be stunned by how light it is. Mine, with the BB, seatpost clamp etc installed weighs 985g - you could believe it was made out of paper.

Nice bike and if I had the money spare....

But must note that some of the people I see on expensive bikes could get much better performance by loosing some weight instead. Still at least they are out and about and not behind the wheel of a car.

A very lovely bike, but be under no illusions, speed is all about the engine (i.e. your muscles, heart, lungs etc).
A bike frame like this only aids with the comfort and stiffness (unless you are already at the top of your form).

I used to think that this was balderdash until I read about a Cat 1 racer winning a cat1/2 race on a vintage aluminium road bike.

Still, this doesnt stop me lusting over a bike like this.
Just have to say no. Repeat.

This would look well with the Mavic 2013 Ksyrium Elite S Clincher I bought at the weekend. Although if I bought this frame I think the divorce would be too costly and I would have to sell all my bikes

as someone said, ferrari quality for ford money. The fact it comes with a £50 headset, a £40 bottom bracket and you get 5% from TCB/Quidco makes it the best cycling deal I can remember.

Theres a few popping up on eBay, I reckon people are buying 2 and selling the second to subsidise the first. If I hadnt recently got a carbon Lapierre cheap I'd be all over this. Anything you can potentially sell on for more than you paid for it new is a no-brainer if you can afford it.

Someone on Singletrackworld.com ordered the frame, went online and surfed the usual mail order/discount suspects and has "built" a bike with decent kit (shimano 105, Fulcum wheels) for ~£1300.

"you can buy a car for that" and similar RRP comments are ignorant/irrelevant, the same can be said of any high-end product in any field. Scott have used carbon longer than just about anyone else (and dont just make bikes out of it) and this is made in the same factory as the niche brand Cervelo, but is selling for generic/own branded money.

Then see if your employer is part of the cycle to work scheme where you can save a massive amount on your bike.

Weight of the bike will have a small effect. For most people it does not matter. But if you honestly think Wiggins would have won the TDF last year on a vintage bike then you would be mistaken.

The scheme is not as cost effective as it once was.
Better deals to be had for nearly new on Ebay if you know what you are looking at
