Any Addicts in the house...or what Scott has up it's sleeve

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Any Addicts in the house...or what Scott has up it's sleeve

I can't believe no one has posted this yet. Scott have unveiled the new Addict which will replace the CR1 in their line. The 56cm has a claimed weight of 790g and the fork is claimed to be 320g. They have added a replaceable rear derailleur hanger but the BB area is now all CF...no AL insert. And check out the CF braze on FD hanger.

Check out the article on Velonews.com

The non replaceable rd hanger was always a deal breaker for me.

I'm not as tech savvy as others, let me ask a question: what are the drawbacks of the lack of BB insert?

*edit* just noticed that it's got SRAM on it. interesting...

New Scott CR1...arrrraaaarrrrr....



Damn!. Even a whole new CF process and replaceable rear dropout.

The only metal parts found on the new Addict road frame are the replaceable derailleur hanger and the press-in races for the headset bearings, like those on the CR1. Everything else, including the bottom-bracket shell, cable stops and front derailleur hanger, is molded from carbon.

A possible ProTour Team bike? The Addict in yellow, with a SRAM Force group, claimed weight – 6.3 kilos.

The all-carbon frame also features a new carbon manufacturing process called "Internal Molding Process" (IMP). A departure from the carbon miter and wrap of the CR1, it is also patented, something Scott USA's chief engineer Peter Denk said should have been done with the CR1's process. The IMP process presumably uses some type of removable inner mold or mandrel, and does not use the traditional monocoque molding method. The results produce a continuously molded carbon piece that does not suffer from the imperfections of traditional monocoque molding. The inner surface of the frame is as clean as the outside, allowing less material to be used to achieve the same marks for stiffness and durability. The rear triangle is molded to the front triangle using the traditional miter and wrap method.

They are brilliant, now you need a new frame every time you want to raise the seat. From the guys that brought you the non-replacable rear deraileur.
The big story at Eurobike is the new Orbea Orca...droooool.

I hope that is a prototype. Is it just me or does the workmanship look kind of shody? Maybe it is just the lighting and the way the photos turned out.

Pretty much yea...and now it is only a few inches long. Having fought the Specialized Pave SL for 2 months and finally giving up on it I like this new style intigrated post design.

I'm not really "The sky is falling" type, but, I guess if for some weird reason you should happen to sheer off that FD hanger, you'd just grind it down and get the clamp on adapter?

I like it. It has a double meaning for me becouse I am a recovering alcoholic and I transfered my addiction from alcohol to biking. At least this addiction is healthy!!
I ride a Scott S1 currently. If I can save a few pennies maybe this will be my next bike!

lol awesome comment, but it wasn't designed as a solution for people who can't figure out how to mount a carbon post

TIME has been doing this for awhile, and many mfg do it with their tt bikes (for other reasons), it reduces a stress point while increasing frame stiffness in a critical area

If you did a little research, you'd know that they are offering two models.... one with the integrated seat post and one with a traditional post. This bike is old news and pictures of the whole line have been out for at least a couple months. The CR1 remains as well though, so it should drop in price a little.

It's about time someone got gutsy enough to build a mainstream frame without that top layer of cf fabric, and allowed the natural fiber layup to show through. Also, I think we're looking at a seriously light bike here. Keep in mind, the weight claimed above includes the integrated seatpost, which means you won't need another 200g added to the bike. Those smaller clamps they use can weigh as little as 100g, like a high end stem. By doing so, you have effectively knocked another 1/2-3/4lbs off the bike, or maybe even more.
