Blue AC1 sl, replacing the addict sl? YUP!

Postby mdeth1313 » Sat Sep 22, 2012 5:05 pm

After riding Scott frames the past 7 years (cr1sl and addict sl), I just aquired a blue ac1sl frameset. I'm going to strip my addict sl and build this up. They're both size mediums, but the geometry on the addict was "doable" while the geometry on the blue (w/ a shorter TT) should be closer to ideal for me (the price was rather ideal as well). After I built up a time trial bike I've been wanting to go to an aero frame as well.

The addict built up to about 11.5 lbs w/ edge 1.45 tubulars and a little under 12.5lbs w/ the clinchers I use.

The blue frameset (frame, fork (uncut), headset, seatpost and those plastic thingies that keep the fork and dropouts stable in shipping) weighed 1851g, I figure I'll drop about 20-40g more switching out the steel bottle cage bolts & cable guide bolt for aluminum bolts and the seatpost clamp bolts for ti, as well as some small parts that are not needed for this frame.

The addict frameset (headset and seatpost/seatpost clamp included) as is weighs about 459g more, that's not taking into account me not cutting the new fork yet, I'd expect that to take the blue frameset to just under a pound heavier.

The rest of the build will be the same, except the parts that are on the new frameset (seatpost clamp, etc):

Front der- campy chorus tuned to 58g, all bolts and washers included
Crankset- zipp vumaquad (now I'll have to use the bb30 kit)
Saddle- ax lightness endurance - 77g
Rear Derailleur- Sram Red 136g (w/ some tuning)
Brakes- KCNC CB1 w/ swissstop yellow pads - 181g
Cable Adjusters on frame- ritchey 6g (for the pair)
Cable Housing and Liner - I-links and Mini I-links - 54g
FD & RD Cables - mini-I-link 22g (uncut)
Brake Cables- Power Cordz - 8g (F & R)
Shifters, Stem, Bars, Tape- Sram Red w/ btp clamps, Extralite OC 90mm, Ritchey superlogic II carbon, spugna tape- 591g
Fork expander- Extralite Ultrastar - 9g, Extralite Top Cap and screw - 5g
Rear Wheel- Edge 1.45, 24h, extralite hub, sram og-1090 11-26 cassette, m2 racer bolt-on skewer, magnet for speed sensor, Continental Competition 700x22 w/ valve extender (total weight 1001g)
Front Wheel- Edge 1.45 20h, extralite hub, m2 racer bolt-on skewer, conti comp 700x19 w/ valve extender (total weight 723g)
Chain- kmc x10sl, 226g


Now I just need a day to switch everything out and ride the new frameset to see if I'm going to keep both frames (and spend more money) or sell the addict.

Wow. That's a damn sexy frameset! It should build into a very clean finished product. I can't wait to see her all put together!

Jeff, I know you'll love this-- I've been riding Scott(s) all these years, now everytime I look at "Blue" all I can think of 2 things-- hot surfers from Blue Crush and the old (dead) guy Blue from "Old School".

Just to be safe we'll go w/ Blue Crush, but it cracks me up everytime I think about it.

Let's hope it rides nice. Harsh is fine, I still miss my aluminum Lapierre fdjeux frameset!

After 3 rides - 40mi, 65mi and my 31 mile commute on this bike, I'm gonna say it's a keeper. The aero thing is definitely working and the extra pound on climbs is minimal. It handles quite nicely, less twitchy, which I attribute more to the better fit than than to the extra pound. I need some omega brakes for this thing! If I sell the addict for the right price I might look into having a 1 piece saddle/post made for it.

I still have a little bit of work to do w/ the fit- I'd actually like to bring my bars up 3-5mm, which would probably make it necessary to go back to a 100mm stem. Never dull!

Glad that you have made the switch to an aero frame! That thing must motor with the H3C's!

And get those Omegas too. They ain't Hookers, but then again, only a Hooker is. :banana:

Jeff, are you saying you would rather have a Hooker instead of an Omega?

You know he's totally into hookers! The addict frame sold yesterday. It's going to someone who is apparently attempting to get their complete bike under 10.5 lbs. That makes me happy!

Kinda fitting, isn't it?

Unfortunately, no pictures with anything but the clinchers. I hadn't planned on using the hed wheels on this one- they've ended up on my TT bike which is really where they belong. I have a 3-day weekend coming up, maybe I can switch them around and see what it looks like. I guess it would be interesting to use that combo on my 200k rides where it's pretty flat, but those won't happen again until next summer.

Unfortunately, there aren't any places left to drop significant weight except a saddle/seatpost combo (and believe me I'm mulling that one over right now). Even then I'm figuring somehwere around 120-150g. Maybe I just need to HTFU (and lose 8 lbs).
