Frame: Good balance between comfort and perfromance

Looking to make the jump to disc for your next road set up, or just for an awesome all-round road bike? The Addict 20 Disc could be the bike for you.

With the Addict 20 Disc hailing from Scott’s endurance leaning models the geometry offers up a more comfortable ride, perfect for long stretches in the saddle. With the most notable change coming from the Addicts slacker head angle.

The Addict 20 disc boasts an impressive spec, with full Shimano 105 gear and brake-set as well as Shimano Centerlock rotors. The rest of the trimmings come courtesy of Syncros, rounding out a quality parts list. The wheelset is also from Syncros with the rear wheel featuring  DT Swiss’ proven star ratchet system on the rear. The wheels are nice and light so there’s little need to rush out and upgrade any of the components.

How does it ride?

Scott’s MF Carbon technology makes for a well balanced frame feel. Not as stiff under power as their RC models, but in no way spongy or unresponsive. The slightly dampened feel really helps smooth out rougher sections of a ride.

The Addict 20 ships with  Schwalbe Durano tyres, while these all-rounders help with smoothing things out on less than perfect surfaces and are great for putting in high mileage, some riders may prefer to upgrade to something more “sporty”. It’s also worth mentioning the Addict 20 offers more tyre clearance, so those looking to follow trends and run wider tyres take note!

 

 

When confronted with potholes or cobbles the Addict certainly helps soften the blow and doesn’t feel jarring. The rumble of the road never gets overpowering but the low-vibration ride responds well when you want apply a bit of power.

 

 

Conclusion

The Addict 20 disc is an excellent all-rounder. Well priced, well spec’d and easy on the eye. The Addict 20 may not appeal to riders looking for the utmost levels of performance in their particular niche but for people looking to do little bit of everything or those putting in big miles the Addict 20 should be on your radar.

With the Addict 20 disc currently on sale at Hargroves Cycles there also hasn’t been a better time to snap one up!
