Scott Speedster
Seems like a heavy beginner bike with an alloy fork. Actually not a dealbreaker as the OEM fork could be a good spare for flights and travelling with an aftermarket carbon for normal road riding.
I use a 2010 Scott Speedster with a full carbon 2016 Scott CR1 fork. I had the frame refinished and it rides like a Ti frame - no kidding. Frame isn't lightweight though -- 1,500g in a 58cm
