The Scott Sub Evo 20 is currently on sale at Big Wheel Bikes for $800 (the MSRP is $1,000).
The first thing we need to do is add this to Edwin’s list of bikes that come with lights. The front headlight is a Busch and Muller Eyc, which is powered by Shimano Deore dynamo hub. The rear light is also from B and M.
Scott calls this a 30-speed. It comes with a cassette with a range from an 11-tooth cog up to a mountain-tackling 34-tooth large cog. The Sub Evo has an aluminum frame and fork and is equipped with Shimano disc brakes. Overall, my impression is that this bike can handle a mix of terrain and climates.
The Sub Evo comes with fenders and a Racktime rearcarrier. Racktime is a complete system which works with “snap it” accessories, as depicted in this youtube video.
Overall, this looks like a well-designed and thought-out bike. There’s a review of the Sub Evo 30 bike on youtube (a similar, but not the same, model).
