The Speedster has been a staple for Scott for many years. When you ride one, you can understand its popularity.

The ride feel is smooth and stable, belying the chunky appearance of the tubeset and the deep-section alloy rims. We were expecting much harsher.

The wheels aren’t light, highlighted by an apparent tugging at your speed on long drags and steep climbs, and contribute to pitching the overall weight over the 20lb mark – not a deal-breaker.

Verdict

Tiagra spec is on-the-money and perfectly adequate, although it’s not obvious what necessitated own-brand brakes and finishing kit, when compared to the Boardman or the Ghost.
