can any one tell me about Scott Road Bikes.
in particular the Comp model.
Tiagra spec'd 6061 Alloy frame.
can be viewed at

I like the look of the bike, but would like to know whether to look closer or stay away, and get something from a more "road" bike manufacturer.
any thoughts

Scott left the US market about four years ago... They made competitive products, both road and MTB, way back when.

They did have one embarassment that I remember... a steel road bike with extremely S curved rear stays... that self distructed at an Interbike show as it was being demonstrated. Still, that doesn't speak of what the company does today.

Scott is/was responsible for many of the aero bars we use today. Many makers license a Scott design then slap their own name on it.

I'd be interested to hear about Scott bikes too. Are you in the US or overseas?

Be the bike.
