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).

    Nice bike for a competitive price if looking at the components. I don't like the rear rack though, attached to the mudguard instead of the frame. If the mudguard breaks (not so unusual) you are left with no support for the rack.
