    I picked this up yesterday used. Scott cr1 pro, ultegra groupset with upgraded conga zonda wheels.

    I’ve noticed a few on here and read good reviews and spotted what I thought represented good value. Just need some good weather to test her out. I wasn’t overly struck on the colour scheme at first as the yellow is a bit overpowering but its nice in the flesh and growing on me. Not a lot to change on this apart from the red on the tyres is winding me up.

    Interestingly the previous owner is the reigning Yorkshire cyclo cross champion, this was his summer training bike.

    Very nice, although your legs and lungs won’t appreciate it. What with all the pain your going to put them through 😆

    Very nice, but as you say, you need to do something with those tyres. ❗

    I have the CR1 Team and love it. 😀

    Yeh the guy bought them for some very good technical reasons and said they have great grip and decent puncture resistance and some other good stuff. I was just thinking you should have bought all black if you couldn’t find a yellow trim detail.

    Seen the next model to these pro 4 on planetx for a good price if they have all black I might get some for the first change over.

    Other than that I can’t think that’s there can be much worth changing. Stem length seems ridiculous but that’s the transition for mainly riding mtb on a 50mm stem.

    Looks great.

    I think mine currently has the same but pro race 3 they seller raved about them, are the 4 the same or better, i need to get the yellow walls.

    Sorry not copying but will look better than red, still I’m not going to be too vain and will change them when they wear. They already look a bit worn but have only had two rides. I don’t think I’m used to the look of slicks again use to much chunkier tyres on the mtb and cx bike.
