Scott Addict SL 11.5-11.6 lbs (the CR1 is no more)

Postby mdeth1313 » Fri Aug 06, 2010 9:06 pm

Realizing my Scott CR1 SL frame was 4 years old, I started saving for a new frame. Right after I bought it, the big jumps in weight reduction started-- I was looking at Parlee, Guru, Scott, Lapierre and a couple of others, but I was either going to have to wait a couple of years or settle for more (weight) than I wanted. My eyes almost popped out of my head when I saw the price of the 09 addict sl frameset, remove VAT, add in shipping and the customs folks hitting me for a COD surprise and I still came out paying less for this frame than I did for the cr1sl almost 4 years ago. That's just sick.

Shipped from the UK to the US- it took 5 days from the day I placed the order. 2 days to build it up-
Some parts I didn't completely take apart, so they were weighed altogether on the scale-

Here goes:

Frame- scott addict sl- 810g w/ derailleur hanger, braze on FD hanger & cable guide
Fork-scott addict sl- 295g cut (might be cut down some more)
Headset- Ritchey WCS 80g w/ cups
Bottle Cages- Emporelli Dolomiti (2 cages) 31g (including alloy bolts)
Front der- campy chorus tuned to 58g, all bolts and washers included
Crankset- Lighning cranks 170mm, Stronglight CT2 50t, Extralite 34t, extralite chainring bolts, Time Iclic Titanium pedals - 682g
BB Cups- Zipp Vuma ceramic (don't ask, I had them laying around and they work w/ lightning cranks) 75g
Seatpost- xx-light sp31- 93g
Seatpost Clamp- scott stock (until I can get a new ultimate clamp) - 13g
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 UL3 90mm, Schmolke TLO (white carbon, 44cm), Deda tape, BTP hoods- 543g
Fork expander- Extralite Ultrastar - 9g, Extralite Top Cap and screw - 5g
Rear Wheel- Edge 1.45, 24h, extralite hub, dura ace 7900 11-27 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, I never weighed the damn thing, but I think it came in around 226g

I didn't weigh the Garmin 500 nor the speed/cadence sensor (individually)
My weight weenie sticker on the top tube doesn't register on the scale.

I took it out for a 36 mile ride today with a couple of climbs. Umm, not much difference from the cr1sl, but when you go from 11.96 to around 11.5 lbs, what's the freaking difference?

Ok- the real differences are the fit- with a shorter headtube and slightly longer top tube, I can use my non-setback post- I was having serious issues w/ my hip and lower back which went away on the cr1 when I switched to a setback post- my position was too cramped. After measuring and trying out the new frame w/out the setback, I feel MUCH more comfortable and found myself riding w/ my hands on the hoods instead of the tops of the bars, which is a good thing. Someone had mentioned the addict did not provide as much of a "beating" as the ride of the cr1 and I think they were right- it's definitely a bit more forgiving. I couldn't even begin to judge stiffness, especially since the bike only dropped half a pound, but the last couple of weeks I think I dropped about 6lbs. Still the fit is just outstanding (so far).

As my buddy and I were joking around we came up with:

This is a bike Chuck Norris would ride.
This bike could rip a man's heart out and show it to him while it's still beating.

Nothing else would be appropriate.

I like this a whole lot. It looks very much like my Ruegamer...

I forgot to add that I like your gearing choice. I don't know if you have mountains where you are but my bikes are similar. All are Campy 10 with 50-34 and 13-29 in the back.

nah, I'm just a wuss. no, really, I'm in NY in the harlem valley, between Litchfield County, CT and the Hudson River. East coast terrain-- I met a guy who was riding cross country- as he put it- I'd rather go back and forth over the rocky mountains 2 or 3 times than have to ride the freaking hills on the east coast!

Very nice! Glad to hear that you like it better than the old one. However, aren't you afraid of meeting Chuck Norris on the road? Seems pretty scary to being riding his preferred bike.

Love it. I love the uber light bikes. We don't see them as much anymore. I understand money becomes an issue, but these builds cost a lot. Once again...great job!

It's pretty close and it's fully functional for him and not hanging on a wall.

I saw you are running Lightning Cranks - what do you think about them? I am going to get some new cranks and have narrowed it down to Storck Powerarms SL, Lightning with the carbon spider, or THM Clavicula (I may hold out until the AX is available).

I like the cranks- I've had no issues except I needed pedal washers- standard pedal washers don't fit and they have their own washers that they sell for $10 a pair plus $5 shipping. I made my own, but it put me off a bit that they don't include pedal washers with a $670 crankset that doesn't include chainrings. BTW, if your pedals have flats (ie- speedplay), you'll need washers.


On a side note, the bike is now below 11.5-- alloy cassette and I'm ditching the btp hoods for electric tape. I've gotta do pics at some point.
