There isn’t much out there that’s more fun than building your own bike. Choosing everything, from paint color to preferred handlebar tape, is an exercise in individuality. While this process is largely lost when picking a bike off the shelf, we’re well-versed in matching the ideal bicycle to the correct owner and their desired uses. Perhaps that’s why so many people love to build up a frame from scratch with us, be it a mountain bike, road bike, or a gravel bike.
Gravel comes in myriad flavors. This has led to the a wide range of bicycles under one segment: heavy adventure-ready bikes with mountain bike tires, lightweight carbon bikes that differ little from their road bike siblings, and everything in between. It’s hard to know what you want, and it’s even harder to distinguish what you need from the range of bikes available.
We are pleased to say that we’ve expanded our range of framesets to the critically-acclaimed 2017 Scott Addict Gravel 20 Disc Frameset, at an unbeatable price. And to get the wheels spinning on how you could build up your Addict Gravel Disc, check out a few of our suggested builds.
2017 Scott Addict Gravel 20 Disc Frameset – $1,799.99 (regularly $2,499.99)
If you’re looking for a gravel bike that can easily work as your club ride road bike, the Addict Gravel 20 doesn’t disappoint. It’s certainly on the racier side of the spectrum, with a stiff bottom bracket and headtube area that imparts very quick acceleration and direct steering. The Addict Gravel is also super lightweight, at just 890g for a frame and 360g for a fork, making it lighter than a majority of road bike frames on market today. Call it the sports car of gravel bikes: light, agile, and ready to go faster and faster. Fit a 700x40c tire to ride Farmington Canyon gravel Saturday, and fit a 700x28c tire for the Monday recovery group ride.
Scott Addict Gravel 20 Disc Ultegra R8000 – $3,399.99
Even as 1x drivetrains for gravel bikes have taken off, Shimano Ultegra groupsets still find their way onto plenty of gravel bikes. An Ultegra RX derailleur features an integrated clutch (similar to their MTB derailleurs) which takes care of chain slap, and the narrowly-spaced gear range ensures you’re in the gear you want, when you want it. Solid, reliable, and unflappable, just like the Addict Gravel.
Scott Addict Gravel 20 Disc Force 1 – $3,699.99
1x drivetrains are more popular than ever, thanks to their slightly lower weight and greater simplicity than a standard 2x drivetrain. SRAM is the master of 1x drivetrains, with SRAM Force 1 at the top of the heap, for it’s wide range of ratios from the massive 10-42t cassette. That cassette provides all the range needed to get up the steepest trails and keep up the pace on the road. Add in the Addict Gravel frameset built to your specifications, and you’re sure to have an unstoppable gravel bike on and off road.
Like anything else, we are happy to build your next frameset to your needs. Want a lighter wheelset than our suggested offering specifies? We can do it. A carbon handlebar? Not a problem.
