I posted this on WW as well, but here goes:
I was deciding what to do for my birthday - new crankset, new brakes, but I'm very happy with the setup on my WW bike and the lousy weather bike doesn't need any tweaking. So, why not do something that would actually improve my fitness and riding ability?
Enter, Scott 3
This should be fun. I'm doing this one on a budget (and weight isn't as important - save that for the addict) so I picked up the 3t aura bars 2nd hand at a bike shop, sram apex cranks and shimano 105 fd are here.
arriving soon are sram apex RD, stronglight TT chainrings, sram apex brake calipers, 3t brake levers, exustar pedals (what the heck, I already have 2 other sets), cables, sram 500 shifters, some various length ritchey wcs 4-axis stems, ultegra cassette.
I already own a set of Hed H3C wheels so that's done, also have another ax-lightness saddle I'll test out on this setup. So far the only WW move has been replacing the scott topcap with an edge one I had laying around to knock 5g off. It also looks better!
I should have everything by the end of this week and then I just need to put it together. That all 3 frames are scott -- total coincidence (maybe not).
