Scott Speedster S60 and the Trek 1.2

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey again, so I have been test riding these two bikes, both around $750, and I'm having a rather hard time deciding. The Scott is stiffer, and more responsive which I love, and it's more comfortable. The Trek, aside from looking awesome, has moderately better shifters and derailers, which I also love.

I put money down on the Scott Speedster! I got the 58cm frame, and it's very comfortable. I will tell you how my first 100 miles go.

Cool I've had one of these for two and a half years now and love it, fast as hell. I've only just upgraded the components and now she's even faster. I got the S40 in 58cm. Can I ask how tall are you? I'm 6'4"/6'5" depending upon the weather and think I'm just about right on this frame. Cheers, enjoy.

I'm 6'0" and it fits perfectly on me. I guess it all matters on how it feels for you, but it seems like a 58cm would be a little small for someone as tall as you are.
