Rutland Road Cycling Demo Day. Scott Bikes

   Words by Aaron Scott

   on 26/03/2014 16:46:05

Scott bikes have always had a bit of a reputation. The Manx missile cut his teeth on the addict back when he was a cocky young upstart as opposed to the elder statesman of a respectable sport that he is now. Loud, boisterous, and lively, Scott bikes have been, with some justification, regarded as the hooligans of the peloton. If you saw a rider cutting his way to the front with some elbow nudging and rolled eyes from other riders he was probably on a Scott. Mark Renshaw famously ‘persuaded’ an opponent to stick to his own sprint line with his head whilst riding on a… you guessed it, Scott.


His justification? He did what needed to be done, and that would probably sum up a Scott bike. It’s eye is on the line and once it’s going it doesn’t like to stop.

The Addict’s name alone hints at the pursuit of something at all costs and has been the favourite bike of the speed freaks among us. The stiff frame carries out commands from the rider before they had even thought them making acceleration and sharp turns a doddle.

Bike Addict Team Issue (22)

A recent re-examination of the performance aspect of their range saw the birth of the Foil. A semi aero bike that is an absolute blast to ride, on a demo test I had to ask the rest of the field to move aside in a polite, if slightly panicked voice as the Foil refused to sit at the back. The only effort I was putting into it was from my braking fingers.

So is Scott’s hooligan reputation a deserved one?

To some extent I suppose it’s true. We aim to make the performance bikes exactly that. Perform. They are built to respond quickly, if your heading for the line with five other riders you need to make every gram of effort count. That means that the bike accelerates as soon as you think about it. Hooligan is a bit of a strong word, maybe focused is more appropriate. Either way people will get to decide at the Rutland Demo weekend Scott's Niki Burnley

Focus shifted recently to another kind of riding. The CR-1 was the long standing comfort bike but always seemed to lack a little something, now the Solace brings ‘Focus’ to all day riding. An easier going geometry makes for a comfortable position that can be sustained on long mile jaunts whilst the lower half of the frame provides the power to eat up the tarmac at a heck of a rate.

If you want to feel what it’s like to ride a bike that wants to go as fast as you do, get down to The Rutland Cycling Road Demo Days on the 12th and 13th of April at Grafham and Whitwell. You can see what a Scott does best and get advice on fit and specs from the Scott Team.
