Hi all,

Thinking of getting a new summer bike and eyeing up these 2.
Anyone tried one of them or (preferably) both?

Bike will be for summer use and trip(s) abroad (Alps in September).

Not overly obsessed with bikes being too stiff as I managed the Marmotte on an alu Ribble recently.
Looking for something that handles well, especially on descents.

Opinions gratefully received although I will try them both soon.

Anything else I should consider at this price point (£2500-2800)?

cheers

    I was in the same position as yourself, undecided between the two bikes. I went with the addict r2 simply because I felt the wheels were slightly better and also the deal I was getting from my lbs. The r2 handles well, is fast and although it's stiff it does not feel harsh.
    I rode a cube streamer before this and although it's a good bike the r2 felt so much more responsive and a lot faster but at this level of bike there is not much to choose from between the r2 and the supersix, you will be happy with either bike.

    Cheers golfer.
    That was my concern that the R2 would be too harsh. Nice to know it's not.
    I noticed the wheels are Kysrium Elites on the Scott but Cannondale have downgraded from Equipes to Aksiums!
    Can't really tell how it will be over longer rides on a short test spin so good to know.
    thanks,
    Paul
