I’ve got some updates on Scott MTBs. For now, all of these bikes have got to be ordered. Except that we’ve got a 2009 Scott Genius 10 frame in stock in size ‘M’.
The intriguing 2010 Scott Scale RC hardtail rounds up my foray into Scott MTBs. Just like the 2010 Scott Spark RC, it’s offered in an RC version, which, in my opinion, makes a lot more sense than the über-expensive LTD editions. It’s too bad that the 2010 Scott Genius doesn’t come in a RC version as well.
Just like the Scott Spark RC, the Scale comes with an ISP, admittedly reducing the weight by an extra 100 gr to a paltry 980 gr (2.16 lbs). Now that’s feather light!
If you’re looking for an XC racing thoroughbred, then look no further than the Scott Spark RC. This year, the RC and LTD models come with an ISP, something that sets these bikes apart from the rest. This is the 2nd year that the ISP frames are available. The Yeti ASR Carbon has also been sporting an ISP for a few years.
Some people have commented on this white tire look, but I actually like it. It sets it apart. It’s kind of like the gray or slightly blue tires that I’ve seen on some MTBs. The stock Spark RC has a full SRAM XX group, which is great.
[Update: I’ve also got some great prices on the stock 2010 Scott Spark RC. Stock MSRP is $8,250 USD. I’ve got it for significantly cheaper. The stock Spark RC is BB30.]
