Light, fast, and affordable—what more could you ask for in a road bike? Scott’s Contessa Speedster 35 can think of a couple more things to add to the list. Not only is the aluminum frame lightweight, it rides like it’s on rails. The carbon fork dampens road buzz so you stay comfortable, even on long rides. The Syncros aluminum wheels spin up to speed quickly, while the Kenda tires offer great traction. Shimano’s 9-speed Sora drivetrain shifts easily and gives you a wide gear range to conquer even the steepest climbs. A women’s-specific seat and shallow-drop handlebars provide a comfortable fit that will keep you pedaling for miles.
