i have a 2011 Scott SUB 10. it's their disc brake/IGH hybrid model. i've got one complaint and one caution.
complaint: the rigid aluminum disc fork rides a bit harsh (but i think that might be true of all aluminum rigid forks). a hybrid at the $1,150 price point should come with a carbon fork, IMO.
caution: i think Scott bikes might run a tad large. their sizing chart and the guy at the bike shop said that a medium would best fit me (i'm 5'-9"), but in test rides, i found the small to be more my style, so that's what i went with. i slapped a longer seat-post and longer stem on it and i've got it very well dialed in now.
otherwise, the bike has been great as my back-up/foul weather commuter. we'll see how it handles its first upcoming chicago winter. Ergon grips have helped eliminate a good deal of the discomfort i was initially experiencing from the road buzz of the harsh fork. also, the bike is just downright beautiful with a very sexy paint job. Scott seems to have the aesthetics thing nailed down if you're into flashy, graphics-intensive paint jobs. here's my Scott:
