Scott F01 Aero Bike

Just before the Tour started last week, Scott announced their new aero bike the F01. A few manufacturers now have these types of frames, undoubtedly the most well known is Cervelo.

This is an incredible shot of Michael Rogers from HTC Columbia riding his Scott Plasma a few days ago in the Amgen Tour of California. More photos here. The Frank Gehry-designed Walt Disney Concert Hall can be seen behind him.

We’ve Begun Taking Orders For 2010

Velocite MONC50

Starting a new venture is always a challenge. Things are happening quite fast. In about two weeks, I’ll have a hands-on photo session with a customer’s 2010 Pinarello Dogma with Campagnolo Super Record 11 and Campagnolo Bora Ultra Two wheels. We’ve got the full spectrum of Dogma colors available, including the limited Team Sky color which just became available.

Updates On Scott MTB

2010 Scott Genius LTD

I’ve got some updates on Scott MTBs. For now, all of these bikes have got to be ordered. Except that we’ve got a 2009 Scott Genius 10 frame in stock in size ‘M’.

2010 Scott Scale RC

2010 Scott Scale RC

The intriguing 2010 Scott Scale RC hardtail rounds up my foray into Scott MTBs. Just like the 2010 Scott Spark RC, it’s offered in an RC version, which, in my opinion, makes a lot more sense than the über-expensive LTD editions. It’s too bad that the 2010 Scott Genius doesn’t come in a RC version as well.

Just like the Scott Spark RC, the Scale comes with an ISP, admittedly reducing the weight by an extra 100 gr to a paltry 980 gr (2.16 lbs). Now that’s feather light!

2010 Scott Spark RC

2010 Scott Spark RC

If you’re looking for an XC racing thoroughbred, then look no further than the Scott Spark RC. This year, the RC and LTD models come with an ISP, something that sets these bikes apart from the rest. This is the 2nd year that the ISP frames are available. The Yeti ASR Carbon has also been sporting an ISP for a few years.

Some people have commented on this white tire look, but I actually like it. It sets it apart. It’s kind of like the gray or slightly blue tires that I’ve seen on some MTBs. The stock Spark RC has a full SRAM XX group, which is great.

[Update: I've also got some great prices on the stock 2010 Scott Spark RC. Stock MSRP is $8,250 USD. I've got it for significantly cheaper. The stock Spark RC is BB30.]

2010 Scott Genius

2010 Scott Genius LTD

Ever since I started mountain biking, I’ve always wanted a Scott Genius. It’s been a favorite, though it couldn’t be sold in the US for a few years due to some legal issues with Specialized. Last year, the Genius LTD retailed for over $13,000 USD, making it an extremely expensive MTB. This year, the prices have dropped by almost $3,000 on the LTD. However, looking through the specs, I find it surprising that they didn’t use the full SRAM XX group. Maybe there is a reason behind it, but I’d rather equip my Genius the way I want.

Asterisk*Cycles

Asterisk*Cycles

I’ve set up a blog for all the posts concerning bicycle purchases from Taiwan. It will serve as a focus for all of the bicycle-related posts from Taiwan. Asterisk*Cycles specializes in high-end bikes.

It is my opinion that to save money, the best thing is to actually purchase bikes or components that are worth more than $3,000 USD. That’s when the real savings start, but modest savings can be had starting from $1,000 USD.

Complete bikes and components, such as gruppos, wheelsets and frames are available, from Pinarello, Giant, Colnago, TIME, Scott, Specialized, Wilier, Orbea, Kuota, and DeRosa. Components from Mavic, Zipp, Lightweight, Campagnolo, Shimano and SRAM are available, as well as seats, stems, and handlebars from FSA, MOst, and other companies.

Currently, there are some major discounts to be had on the 2010 Pinarello Dogma 60.1, the 2010 TCR Advanced SL product line from Giant, the 2010 Anthem X Advanced SL 0 from Giant as well as the 2010 Trance X Advanced SL 0 from Giant.
