Scott Sub 45

In the crowded bike market many people will be looking for a product that can turn its hand to a range of uses, which is a need that has generated a sub-category of hybrid bikes. The Scott Sub 45 is just one option in this particular sector and it makes a good case for itself thanks to its impressive set up, capable components and high quality finish. This should be enough to win it many fans, but it always makes sense to take a closer look before you part with your cash.

Scott Sub 45 2011 Overview

The alloy frame of the Scott Sub 45 is matched with an alloy fork, Shimano gears and hydraulic disc brakes. There are fixtures allowing the rider to mount mudguards to protect your clothes from a drenching or a rack, which can store shopping bags or a briefcase, although these are not included in the basic package. Continental tyres add to the sporting nature of the bike and the rigid design means you can transfer plenty of power from the pedals to the tarmac below, resulting in quick acceleration and less chance of earning the ire of other road users due to a sluggish take off from the lights.

With a silver frame and black rims and tyres the Scott Sub 45 is not hard to miss but avoids looking too garish with its limited choice of colours. The Scott Sub branding is present on several of the components and the compatible accessories will fit right in once they have been bought and properly attached.
