Rode the Scott CR1 & Foil, Cannondale Synapse & Supersix, and Specialized Roubaix & Tramac with about the same level of components. The Cannondale and Specialized are either very relaxed or very ridged as is the foil. I had been fighting between deciding on a comfort position or full race position for some time. I am a frequent rider that does not have any desire to beat everyone to the finish line but at the same time wants to get in the pocket from time to time. Luckily I rode the CR1 last and within 5 minutes I knew I had found my first carbon bike. To me, the position is actually right in the middle of a relaxed and race feeling. The frame is rigid but forgiving at times as well. I've put about 300-400 miles on the bike now and typically run 30-40 mile streches without any uncomfortable ticks and still have the ability to stand tall or drop down quite easily. Components for the price are great and although about 1 level lower than I would like they work quite well and as expected. It's the best they offer for a CR1 with SRAM and shimano was not an option as I'm not a fan. The shifting is on par for the level. Not as crisp as I would hope or expect from a Red group but miles above the apex line. The gearing is great for anywhere in the bay area. All around a good buy for a bike that you really won't need to put anything into to take it to the next level.
Rode several bikes before deciding on the SCOTT CR1 Elite, others rode great also, but it was riding over rough asphalt, pavement dividers, and pea gravel concrete that sold me on the scott. I know there are several bikes that are faster, but comfort, and having a fun day riding is worth a lot. That is why I picked the CR1 Elite, I might should have gotten the Pro for the carbon finish, it's just a whole different looking bike, with no clear coat, and the red paint, wow, But I like the SRAM components. so I went with the Elite. I hope this was helpful. Ride as many bikes as you can before deciding.
