Our own Nick Gaitan just got this Addict Team Issue. Scott has spent the last 10 years at or near the top of their field developing high tech methods to make the lightest road bikes without sacrificing ride quality. In 2011, it was a bit sad to see them stop production of the Addict model in favor of a more race oriented bike called the Foil. The Foil is still a great bike that favors someone who can appreciate it’s added stiffness and increased aerodynamics. Little did we know that the new Addict was already in development. For 2014, Scott has moved back to the front of the field with the new Addict. The SL version is the lightest frame and fork combo on the market at this point eclipsing Cervelo’s RCA and Cannondale’s Evo Black. More important, Scott has incorporated more compliancy and more aerodynamic features into this frame to make it a bit more of an “all-arounder” rather than a “one-dimensional” frame focused on being light. Nick’s bike is finished up with Fizik’s new cockpit parts and a full Dura Ace 9000 kit including the C24 wheelset. A great frame with great components add up to less than 14 pounds. Maybe our favorite thing about it is it’s high-gloss black and green graphics that are a bit subtle and bold at the same time.
There will always be something to criticize no matter where you live. Lately it has been easy to get down on Utah when you look at the air quality in our valley or our never ending conflicts in politics. But at the end of the day you have to love Utah. At least I do. I cannot think of a state where there is so much at your fingertips within such a short distance.
Felt like I needed to share this again. At Contender, I have always said that Leo “the super mutt” is the finest athlete that has worked here. I think Kaia might put him to shame. Have to love dogs.
