Looking to replace my road frame/groupset and once I’ve swapped parts/sold existing kit etc can get a Scott Addict and Ultegra groupset at a cost of around £850.
However, although Planet X aren’t releasing pricing for a few days yet I’d imaging I’ll be able to get the new Aero N2a and a Ultegra groupset for similar money.
So whilst the Addict isn’t a ‘new’ frame it will be best part of half a pound lighter than the N2a.
But will the aero features of the N2a compensate for the extra weight compared to the Addict?
The thing I don’t get about these aero frames is that presumably you only get the benefits when riding solo or at the front of the group. So if you are going to race crits/ride in groups will the benefit be lost?
Any views on this?
