A Gift for busywife…

I had been plotting a surprise for Busywife for some time now, but she has foiled my plans.  Apparently at BikeStreet Greenville she found a 2013 Scott CR1 Contessa Team on sale for 50% off!  I was planning a birthday present in a few months but looks like birthday has arrived sooner!

All carbon CR1 frame, all 105 groupset, 10-speed goodness with a compact front crank and even a decent wheelset for the price point.  There’s no catching busywife now!  It’s going to be a great bike for her Assault on Marion ride next year…

What was helpful in the decision is I had already had a test ride on a Cr1 and was impressed with the combination of road bike comfort and handling / power transfer.  Here’s a review of the same bike:

  1. And…now that I’ve finished my first 70 mile ride on the new bike, I can safely say it was well worth the fact that we are now making payments on it! It really is a nice ride and such a splurge for me. Wish everyone had such a thoughtful husband. 🙂
