comment How do I determine parts for my bike and where to source them (new)?
When you buy a bike from a company that distributes through brick & mortar dealers, the bike company derives no benefit from undercutting their dealer network. One of my bikes is a Trek, and it is the same with them, though at least in some places their bikes are distributed far more widely than Scott... you buy parts via the dealer. Some dealers, e.g. TrekBicycleStore.com, do sell the parts online, but maybe none of the Scott dealers do. I think you should go to a dealer and ask nicely if you might see a parts list...

Selle An-Atomica, which is definitely favored by many long distance riders: bikeforums.net/showthread.php/… and selleanatomica.com

comment Roof Rack vs. Trunk Rack for Sedan
That is a major con with a roof rack. If you search around there are MANY anecdotes of people doing this out there on the 'net. Additionally, a roof rack can make loading and unloading a two-person job, especially if the vehicle is tall (like an SUV). Some roof racks (Yakima) use a clamp which goes around the downtube. I am always nervous watching that clamp being fastened, and my bike does not have a carbon frame. Another rider I know had their wheels damaged when their bike leaned over on a roof rack in high winds.
