 Scott Addicted 
This is the very first new bicycle I've ever bought, not counting my first MTB back in 1992, that I got as a birthday present. In fact, I haven't bought a complete bike of any kind since my Mountain Cycle MOHO back in 1999! The reason for a change in practice and a completely unplanned purchase - a friend of mine, who was buying a groupset and wheels off of my Scott CybeR1, cunningly managed to sway me towards selling him a complete bike! Therefore, lo and behold - meet a bog-standard 2014 Scott Addict 20.

2014 Scott Addict 20 - The latest Scott's racing machine - purchased at Planet Bike Belgrade. This is the entry level model Addict, with lower grade HMF grade carbon fibre frameset (as compared to flagship HMX), specced with 10-speed components but otherwise the same as the next model up - 11-speed Ultegra equipped Addict 10.

A mix of 6700 Ultegra and 5700 105 groups and RS11 wheelset - not bad for a start and easy to upgrade in the future... But that "ain't gonna cut it" for me, so the bike was destined to be taken apart the very next day after purchase, as I had only bought it for its frameset 3:).

Now we're talking! This is how I prefer my bikes - built up from framesets! Since I've built a few new bikes (or should I say - Scott bikes) in recent years, you could say that I am addicted to it - so I thought this would be a perfect name for this Scott Addict project: "Addicted".

Let's get down to business - Scott Addict HMF bare frame weight = 946 grams in size L/56 (pictured with press-fit BB installed @ 1019 g). I was hoping and expecting greater weight savings over my (exceptionally light) CR1 frame than only 19 g!

On the other hand, the fork weighs 332 g shortened by a little bit, therefore 32 g less than CR1 fork.

Syncros RR1.2 Carbon seatpost 27.2/350 mm is exceptionally heavy @ 245 grams, so there's an area for weight savings in the future. The post itself is light - the hardware is the heavy part. At least it's compatible with oval carbon seat rails. The seatpost came with the bike - my beloved Fizik Cyrano Carbon is of no use as it is 31.6.

SM-BB71 (Ultegra / XT level) press-in bottom bracket - 73 grams. I've used it instead of SM-BB91 as I've already had it (it is 3 g lighter than than BB91, as it happens). For a comparison, 6700 Ultegra BB weighs 101 g.

Complete integrated headset with carbon spacers weighs 107 grams (or 95 g without), which is not bad, considering my PRO RS-11 headset weighed 100 g.

The remaining frame hardware is 29 grams, which is 17 g of savings over CR1 hardware. In total, a functional stock Addict frameset is 101 g lighter than CR1. Not spectacular but OK, considering they are made out of the same HMF carbon fibre.

Addict uses internal cable routing. I would have perhaps chosen a different colour cable outers but I decided to stick with OE Jagwire CGX and LEX-SL. Weight = 107 g.
