Scott Sub Review

You can tell right away that the Scott Sub is built for functionality and although it may not be the flashiest bike around, that suited us well. If you are planning on using a bike day in and day out, you want one like the Sub – neat lines and a great geometry.

A great thing about the Sub is that the geometry of the bike encourages you to sit up straight, making it ideal for trips that last for hours. Overall, this is certainly a comfortable bike, not just because of the geometry but also because of the tires. They are large and plush enough to ride on any surface in a city.

The bike manfully manages cracks, potholes, and more, barely transferring any of the impact to the rider. Adding to this, it is unlikely the Sub will be overly affected by anything that it encounters either. This is a relief for riders who don’t like regular maintenance. It is going to be quite a while before you need to tend to this bike.

The Sub is middle of the road when it comes to weight. While it is not lightweight, it is not heavy enough to hold you back when climbing. Still, it can be a bit of a damper on your speed after a while. The brakes on the Sub are quite good as well. What’s more, they perform equally regardless of the weather conditions.

It may not be the cheapest commuter bike on the market but it will serve you well for what you have paid for it.

+Pros:

  • Good geometry
  • Durable
  • Comfortable
  • Good brakes

-Cons:

  • A bit heavy

The Verdict

The Scott Sub is going to be a dependable commuter bike and holds up well in a variety of environments. It is a value for money as it is strong, has good quality components, and requires very little maintenance.
