“über-bikes” are our high-performance road bikes. As our local cyclists will tell you, road riding in this area provides miles and miles of beautiful scenery and nearly traffic-free riding. However, some our roads may not the best quality so we select bikes that would perform best on rough surfaces. We know that any bike is fine on smooth pavement but not all will do well on an uneven patched and pot-holed country road.
Our current über-bike is the 2020 Scott Addict 10 Disc. We have a full size rage of this model available and, as with all of our rental bikes, we offer a rental credit on a purchase. Ask about details. Here is a description of the great bike from Scott Sports:
“The SCOTT Addict 10 Disc was designed from the ground up with those longer days in mind. With geometry that is less focused on racing and more on enduring, a Shimano Ultegra drivetrain and disc brakes, the Addict 10 will be your go to when you’re looking to put the miles in.”
Many of the climbs here have sections with steep grades, sometimes exceeding 16%. That’s just another reason why we like this Scott Addict. It has a 2×10 drivetrain with a compact 50/34 crankset and 11-32 cassettes.
A word of caution, these are high-performance bicycles and in the interest of safety they are intended for experienced cyclists only. Our goal is for you to have fun but we can’t rent these bikes to riders that are not familiar with their use. They are the same bikes you may see used on race circuits and their “aggressive” geometry requires a riding style that can be challenging for some. If you are looking for a more upright and “relaxed” bike then check out our other rental options.
