Hi weenies,

Seems there's some good deals out there on Di2 Scott Addict framesets. There seems to be rumours here and there that's it's actually possible to run a mechincal groupset on these with the addition of a cable guide or something here and there. Anyone heard of this or tried it?

Thx!

What model year? I am pretty sure that for 2015-2017 model years, the Addict and Solace models are both Di2 and mechanical compatible, but I think only the premium editions were supplied with both electronic and mech hardware.

I have a 2015 Foil that came with mechanical Ultegra but I quickly switched over to Di2. Had to drill a hole for the front-derailleur wire behind the BB and also drill out the exit-port for the rear derailleur cable. There is a cable stop inside the frame that is only large enough for the mechanical cable to pass through so had to be opened up. Obviously, was extremely careful in making these alterations but the point I'd like to make is that once you go electronic, you can't go back to mechanical.

Not sure how they would have made it work for both.

On the 2015-2017 Addict/Solace framesets, there is a cable port that takes two different guides for either a mechanical or Di2, as well as two different inserts for the cable ports where the rear derailleur exits the end of the stay on the rear triangle, and the bottom bracket has routing for both mechanical underneath the bottom bracket, as well as a Di2 port hole on the backside of the seat tube:

Yeah it’s the 2016 team edition, black and green like this

From their pics I can’t complete see the cable port on the left side of the headtube. The team always ran di2 but it’s just cheaper and lighter to run mechanical.

A quick look on Ebay and I found this SCOTT ADDICT TEAM ISSUE 2016 FRAME SET and judging from the images, it is definitely mechanical compatible, but comparing to your image, it appears they are not the same frameset.
