While their sport isn’t as well-known as mountain or road biking, cyclocross riders still must count on their “noble steeds” to take them through terrain ranging from sand and gravel to pavement and puddles. In that vein, the Scott Addict CX RC — a cyclocross bike designed for serious riders who can fork serious cash — is a stallion. The price? $6,200.
The bike is running primarily SRAM and Ritchey components, including carbon rims. It has an integrated seat post and carbon dropouts with a replaceable aluminum derailleur hanger. At just more than 15 pounds, it’s surely one of the lightest cyclocross rigs you’ll find, increasing speed and making course hurdles a cinch.
Sure, you can buy three race-ready CX bikes from another company at this price. You could even purchase a horse or two. But you couldn’t get a stallion. The Scott Addict CX RC is currently available for $6,200. www.scottusa.com
