Here's my new Scott Addict RC with most of the parts swapped over from my old Addict SL.
The frame is 100+ grams heavier than the SL although both have identical specifications.
The fork originally weighed 390 grams but was so overbuilt that even the headset bearing couldn't fit over it. The replacement was standard Addict weight ~320 grams - and more importantly, it works.
Saddle was moved back slightly and leveled up after these initial photos and a few rides.

Allez!

Still loving your MCFK saddle?

(I'm envious of your FL rings, too.)

Yes, the MCFK saddle is working well and I like it a lot. What you see in the photos is the "everyday" setup. I had to use an SLR saddle while the Addict was getting prodded and probed at the bike shop during the warranty process and was glad to have it back (and the VumaQuad's low Q-factor).
Side note, my New Ultimate seatpost was broken when it returned from the shop. I had that New Ultimate since 2009 and I think it had enough hours on it to circle the globe. I'm guessing someone >90kg really wanted to try a carbon saddle. I guess I should have anticipated this. Glad I hadn't installed the MCFK post yet! Thankfully the saddle stood up to the "test", whoever he (or she) was.
The Fibre-Lyte rings have lived well past their expected life. I was told to expect 1000-1500 miles, but these must have 4000+ on them. Still work great.

Here's what New Ultimate looked like after I picked it up from the shop.

It was slated to go on the white Addict.

Dik, fadr.
The white bike has a little more Czech flavor to it ;)

Great bike :thumbup:

Is there any reason you went for SRAM cassette instead of recon?

I like. Not bad looking when assembled with the right parts.

I did use a Recon cassette in the past but I was tired with the subpar shifting and the short lifespan.
After a month or 2 it would skip gears when you push hard... or in the middle of a busy intersection...

Take the post back to shop and tell them what they did??
I would not accept someone break my stuff and not tell me that.

They had no idea what happened but they took my word for it and gave me store credit for the replacement cost.
