Strengths:    Great acceleration, road feel, carbon smooth and comfortable. Superb handling going downhill and cornering. Nice looking. Don't see many around

Weaknesses:    Race geometry took alot of tweaking to get right. On some types of pavement road feel is a bit much, but isn't that with most high end bikes

Bottom Line:   
Carbon race machine -I was looking at upgrading my 6 yr old lugged carbon frame. I wanted a lighter full carbon high performance peloton ready bike. I considered Supersix, Felt, BMC, Parlee but found everything I wanted in the Scott Addict. Amazingly acceleration, smooth silky ride, light, very stable, nice road feel and goes downhill with great confidence and speed. Just did a 200+ mile wknd ride with major climbs and loved every minute on this bike. Everything you'd want in a top end, race oriented machine. Too bad they are discontinuing in 2011. Will come out with more bling, internal cable routes, taper head tube, more aero I suppose. Todays bike its a great value.

Strengths:    Light, stiff and excellent ride characteristics. Shimano Ultegra SL works great and very nice finish.

Weaknesses:    The Huchinson tires do not seem all that durable. None other than that so far.

Bottom Line:   
Bike is a 2009. It is a very light and stiff frame that is also comfortable.

Strengths:    Very light, my 110 lb wife's frame (53cm) is 840gm. Great handling, great appearance and solid feel. Smooth on the road. White lettering on black frame looks great!

Weaknesses:    I worry about the frame, not breaking, but being bumped, stressed etc since it is so light. But, more than 6 months later and 4000 miles, all is well.

Bottom Line:   
A fast, stable and attractive frame that while being one of the very lightest frames made receives essentially very little coverage in the popular bike press. This is a 2008 R1 frame

Date Reviewed: September 12, 2008

Strengths:    Excellent riding characteristics, Very light (size L weight 5.7kg, 12.5lbs), yet stiff. SRAM Red rules!!! (I cannot wait until new Dura-Ace is available to compare)

Weaknesses:    You really have to be quite carefull with it because this frame looks so fragile.
M5 brakes are disputable in terms of their look, but they perform very well. However cleaning them is a nightmare. Also the question where I will buy spare chainrings for the VumaQuad crankset still remains without answer...


Bottom Line:   
This bike was built on my own using multiple sources to choose the best and most wanted equipment and not to spend a fortune on it. I am very glad I succeded in the process and now I have a bike I've dreamt about. Of course you can argue about the selection of components or their aestetics/design, however, Scott addict frame is one of its kind with such a low weight.

Favorite Ride:   Kasztany, Jaroszki

Purchased At:   Local dealer + Gotta

Similar Products Used:   not personally but just something that migth be comparable in my opinion: BMC SLC-01, Cannondale SuperSix, Cervelo SLC-SL

Bike Setup:   Scott Addict r1 frame and fork, SRAM Red DoubleTap levers and F&R derailleurs, ZIPP 303 wheels, VumaCuad crankset and SL2 handlebar, M5 brakes, TIME Ulteam Ti Carbon pedals, SLR Kit Carbonio Flow saddle, Ritchey 4Axis Matrix Carbon stem, Wipperman chain, Nokon cables, Tufo <215gr tubulars, Scott carbon bottle cages. Also I initially had KCNC cassette but over time I get back to Dura-Ace one, as the shifting is much more smooth.

2011 Scott Addict R3

Hello everyone! Just getting into riding, I initially bought a hybrid because I didn’t know which way I wanted to go MTB or Road.
