Frame & Forks – Scott are renowned for being the leaders in the creation of lightweight bicycle frame technology. The Speedster CX 20 frame is no different with the utilisation of Scott’s Aero 6061 aluminium. The frame and forks on the Speedster feature F01 technology which enable the bike to cut through the air with superb efficiency.
Specific Cyclo-Cross geometry puts the rider in a comfortable and balanced position for generating power whilst delivering poise and balance in tight and twisty corners. The specialist aluminium frame is specially designed to thrive off road on rough terrain.
Internal gear cable routing keeps the dirt at bay whilst enhancing the clean lines of the bike.
Drivetrain – Shimano’s 10 speed componentry delivers super slick shifting and a fantastic range of gears. Shimano are renowned for their reliable components, which on a rugged cyclocross bike is extremely important. The 11-32 cassette and 34 x 46 tooth chainrings allow you to climb very steep hills but also the perfect ratio for blasting along fast trails.
Brakes – The Shimano mechanical disc brakes fitted to this model offer an alternative to traditional rim brake options. Reliability in the wet is one of the great benefits of disc brakes, along with their ease of maintenance. Rim wear is totally eliminated due to the contact area for braking being moved to the disc rotors.
As a result of analysis from performance testing, all Scott disc brake bikes are fitted with the rear disc brake mounted on the chainstay to reduce brake shudder and increase performance.
Wheels and Tyres – The 700c Syncros Race 22 wheels deliver a reliable and positive experience whether on trail or road. Kenda Kwick 35mm wide tyres offer minimal resistance on the road whilst giving good levels of grip should you wish to turn off onto a bridleway.
Finishing Kit – Syncros components fitted to the Speedster CX 20 complement the rest of the bike perfectly, matching the dynamic look of the bike through their shape and colour schemes. Syncros like Scott are a hugely iconic brand with decades of experience in the world of bicycle component manufacturing.FRAME & FORKS

Choosing an appropriate size of bike frame can vary bike to bike/model to model due the design and technical geometry and the cycling activity a bike is designed for. Generally, the ideal guide to selecting a suitable size frame for you is your height.

The Scott story began in the Sun Valley, Idaho by top class ski racer and innovative thinker Ed Scott. He designed and developed the first tapered aluminium ski pole, rendering bamboo and steel poles defunct at the highest level of competition. The company then moved into different markets with motocross and cycling emerging as new targets for the business. Greg Lemond stunned the cycling world when he used the first ever production aero bar, which was made by Scott in his 1989 Tour de France win. Innovation and technology remain at the forefront of Scott’s design ethos in all their products. Moving forward to the present day Scott produce; bikes, components, shoes, helmets, clothing and much more, all with the same meticulous detail to performance as when Ed Scott developed his ski poles in 1958. As a result it is no surprise Scott bikes and riders have been at the forefront of international cycle sport.
Nino Schurter and Jenny Rissveds stormed to victory in the XC MTB discipline at the Rio Olympics. The pair who ride for the Scott Odlo MTB Racing Team were riding the latest evolution of the Scott Spark. In road racing the Scott Foil and Addict have become the bikes to watch whether climbing up mountains in the Alps or blasting along the cobbles in the Arenburg forest. Adam Yates and his Orica–BikeExchange team mates have been producing consistently top results using Scott products. The latest big signings for Scott are the Browlee brothers Jonny and Alister who need no introduction in the world of triathlon. The brothers who have and continue to dominate the discipline will be opening a new chapter with the brand utilising Scott’s attention to detail and no shortcuts approach to creating the best equipment on the planet.
The anatomy of a Cyclo-Cross Bike.
Wheels and tyres
Tyres over 30mm wide are standard on cyclo-cross bikes to cope with the lumps and bumps expected off the beaten track. A range of tyre compounds and treads are available for cyclo-cross bikes giving options from road riding to heavy mud conditions. Tubeless tyres are becoming more popular in cyclo-cross due to their ability to be run at low pressures compared to traditional butyl tubes.
Like cyclo-cross frames, wheels need to be able to withstand tremendous force from general off road riding and in places where knocks are par for the course. Wheels are the same diameter as their road counterparts 28” or 700c.
Gearing on CX bikes usually comprise of a 46 x 36 tooth front chainring set up with a 12 x 28 tooth cassette at the rear. Single chain ring options are filtering in to the cyclo-cross scene which create a lightweight no fuss option. Repeated accelerations are routine in cyclocross and the gearing relects this, the drivetrain is geared towards a low to mid-range as top end speeds are not often attained off road.
There are two options when it comes to cyclo-cross bicycle braking, through either a rim or disc brake set up. Cantilever rim brakes have traditionally always been used on CX bikes due to their excellent mud clearance capabilities but there is a shift away from rim brakes with disc brake optimised frames and forks becoming widely available. Disc brakes deliver superb stopping power, control and feel combining for an undoubtedly.
What are they and what makes them so good at what they do?
The discipline of cyclo-cross dates back to the early 19th century where a French soldier named Daniel Gousseau who could often been seen riding his bike off road to maintain fitness over the winter months decided to stage races off road on drop handlebar bikes. Nowadays bikes are more refined for the nuances of the discipline than in the early pioneer CX days. Cyclo-cross bikes are designed primarily for off road use but are often used on road with great success. Features of cyclo-cross bikes includes;
Frame and forks
Cyclo-cross frames and forks are made strong enough to withstand off road terrain. The geometry of CX bikes is similar to an endurance road bike frame placing the rider in an upright position which is better for negotiating off road terrain. The bottom bracket is usually higher on a cross bike than a road bike for increased clearance of obstacles.
In cyclo-cross racing getting off and “shouldering” the bike is a common occurrence, often obstacles are too steep to negotiate on the bike and running is the preferred option. Brake and gear cables are often routed on the right hand side of the bike to avoid interference with the rider plus the top tube is often flat or a comfortable shape for running with.
Frames and forks are designed to accommodate wide tyres for grip and use the larger volume to soak up rough terrain. Popular with commuters and other city riders the versatile cyclo-cross bike often has treaded mounts for racks and mudguards enabling it to be used as an extremely practical bicycle.
