Scott Speedster S55 road bike 2011
Great fast tourer/hybrid bike - perfect first road bike - frame size 54cm - Scott Medium
This is a Scott Speedster S55 road bike in excellent condition. It's an aluminum frame with carbon fork and is really light for the price-point.
The bike is a great first road bike or commuter and is really comfortable for long rides; I've loved it but am upgrading and changing frame size. It is the Scott Speedster S55, but with elements intended specifically for the British market, namely the frame is drilled for mudguards and will take racks and panniers. The chainset is a triple (see specs).
There are one or two marks on the bike, and all of them are included in the images and are very minor, these are all on the left (non drive) side of the bike from being leaned against a wall or two: light scuffs on the left brake lever, a small mark on the white paint on the left side of the fork and seat stay (pictured). The frame is double butted Alloy with some of the tidiest welds I have seen in this price bracket.
I have just, this week replaced the bar tape which was worn and grubby looking for new black Specialized cork tape, it looks pretty sharp, the picture doesn't do it justice.
The bike is still in regular use up until sale, so one or two things in the pictures are not included for sale: there is a mounting for a computer on the stem, and speed and cadence sensors at the back, these will not be included. The pictures also show the bike with SwissStop brake blocks, these will be replaced with the original blocks (which have only had about 30 miles of use and are in as-new condition, see picture). The Tacx Tao Ultralight bottle cage and Look Keo Classic pedals are included - you can find cleats for these pedals for as little as £11.99 (www.tinyurl.com/look-keo-cleats).
Bike Radar gave the S55 4/5 in their review in 2011 - see here: www.bikeradar.com/gear/category/bikes/road/product/review-scott-speedster-s55-11-44888
