Scott Addict CX-10

The first thing that stands out about the Scott Addict 10 is… well, I’ve got to be honest. It’s the paint. That’s what people are telling me, anyways. Lot’s of people. This thing stands out of a crowd at cyclocross practice, let me tell you.

Black with neon yellow highlights is, apparently, a happening scheme and they’ve color matched everything. Bars, stem, saddle, wheelset… everything. Those color-matched parts? They’re good. I even like the Syntace saddle, enough to contemplate purchasing one for my other bike. Who woulda’ guessed that?

Naturally enough, the first thing I did upon setting up the bike was ditch that perfectly color matched stem for a shorter one that doesn’t go with the rad paint scheme in the slightest, but brings the reach back to where I need it, and that taken care of, I started to put the machine through it’s paces.  It’s really damn good.

No, seriously. It’s good. Good enough that I really don’t want to ride the overly stiff yet less precise than the Scott Belgian thing I was on before.

That’s with the tubeless setup that came stock on the bike. I’m really looking forward to getting some nice tubulars on this thing for some further testing. Stay tuned…  The first thing that stands out about the Scott Addict 10 is… well, I’ve got to be honest. It’s the paint. That’s what people are telling me, anyways. Lot’s of people.
