I was wondering if anyone has fitted a Scott Oiler on the new AS, the position it was fitted to on my 2016 AT is no longer available as the rear break reservoir has been moved to this location, any pictures or suggestions would be great as I’m struggling to find a suitable location.
Thanks all

Never used a Scott Oiler so I can't help with your question... but can I ask why you are using one?

I'm asking because I believe chains now days (sealed o-ring types) don't need lubricating - sufficient grease being sealed in the rings for the life of the chain.

I just coat for weather protection when I wash the old stuff off.

What's your take on the benefits?

I tend to tour long distances with my AT nearly all road work, so I like the benefits of a Scott Oiler where I haven’t got to use lubrications ie chain oil on a regular basis

I suppose if you're going to carry it with you it might as well be in an automatic dispenser! :)
