Mark Cavendish's Scott Addict 2009 Road Bike



















Courtesy of bikeradar.com this is Mark Cavendish's new road bike for 2009. Scott have recently taken over from Giant as bike sponsors for the Team Columbia team and what a road bike they've put together. I think it looks mint!

You can read the specs here but basically it's fully kitted with Shimano Dura-Ace, SRM cranks and power control, Ritchey headset and even uses a standard Scott Addict LTD frame and folks. Most importantly the whole bike is made of carbon, meaning that it is 100g lighter than last year's Team Columbia Giant TCR Advanced SL bike.

If you have the money you can grab one yourself from Evans Cycles.

It's quite a long way away from my Hinde L'Etape. You can read about the sportives I'm doing over the summer here.

For this year's Tour De France, Mark Cavendish has also gone for a custom paint job on his Scott Addict which looks mint!

Totally scrumptious!

Not a bad looking frame set but ghastly wheels. Who in their right mind would want to ride wheels splattered with logos like that. What on earth has happened to style and subtlety? Bling gone mad.

I think they look wicked, finish off the bike really well but then again I have a white GTI which isn't everyone's choice of colour of car! lol
