The Shimano A070 is a performance classes lower than Shimano Sora. Sora, the common drivetrain class on bikes in this price range offer a 9-speed drivetrain. The Speedster is only a 7-speed drivetrain. The best part of the Scott Speedster is the frame design. I believe the Speedster line comes with (at least partially) internal cable routing and a design similar to the higher end carbon-fiber Foil line Scott offers. I would be nervous to get the lower end derailleur set, seeing as the usual justification of spending more money on a bike is to get a nicer drivetrain.
