However I am having issues with the front derailleur. I had read about people having issues with the front derailleur tab cracking and coming off on these Scotts however I didn't expect it to be so flimsy. I can set up the front derailleur perfectly however as soon as I shift under the slightest load the tab flexes so much that the chain wont shift. I have tried both my SRAM Force derailleur and my Shimano 105 one which was the setup I had previously. I wonder if this is because I am using 11 speed chainrings? I know that everyone says chainrings are all cross compatible between 10 and 11 speed however these SRAM ones are plastered in warnings saying "only use with 11 speed"
Yup, sadly that's a potential issue with that gen of Addict. Sorry to read you've been bitten by it.
I suspect Scott is aware. I've read numerous instances where Scott allegedly replaced frames with cracked carbon FD tabs. Furthermore, the FD tab on the current-gen Addict is significantly more robust and appears to have a metal insert behind it. My impression is that Scott is very progressive with their warranty support for original owners.
I struggled with the carbon FD tab on my '10 Addict (same gen as yours) that didn't ever appear cracked, but got floppier and more tempermental over the years. "My" trusty mechanic - who's a bike Jedi - mastered it, but other mechanics filling in would invariably be driven to tears trying to adjust my FD.
Not sure what's under the FD tab on the seat tube of this gen of Addict, but I frequently toyed with cutting off the FD tab and replacing it with a clamp-on unit (see Parlee and others). Instead of getting primeval on it, I demoted (promoted?) it to basement Zwift duty. My new bike will have a very robust FD tab with some sort of metal insert behind it. https://store.parleecycles.com/products ... leur-clamp
