Is “good news Sunday” a thing? If, yes here’s mine. If no, maybe it should be.

After some $ exchanged hands, SCOTT USA lined me up for an identical replacement 2017 Addict SL frameset (frame and fork). As luck would have it, this one is 35-38g heavier than my identical Addict SL out of the box from back in early 2017. :noidea:

***1015g "previous" vs 1053g "new" (with 4 water bottle bolts) so my "new" one might be closer to 1050g and "just" 35g heavier

* NEW frame (w/der hanger and without water bottle hardware) is 753g vs 725g (w/der hanger but without water bottle hardware) - 25g heavier
* NEW fork (uncut) is 300g vs 290g (uncut) for my last one - 10g heavier

Parts have been transferred from my old Addict SL to the new Addict SL... I'd post a pic, but it looks the same :D

With FSE carbon clinchers laced to Extralite Cyber hubs, my Addict SL w/Quarq weighs 5.74kg / 12.65lbs
* FSE wheelset weighs 1261g + 2-3g for Veloplugs (I forget if they're red or yellow)

With 2017 Mavic Cosmic Carbon Pro SL clinchers (not UST), it weighs 6.02kg / 13.27lbs
* Mavic wheelset weighs 1517 w/Yellow Veloplus and w/o their boat anchor tape strip

Out with the old and in with the new (despite a 14g penalty)... probably need to bump my Addict's weight a hair (or better yet weigh it with threadbare tyres to offset it)
