After four rides, I can say that I really like the way Spark 900 rides. It took me a few rides to dial in my position and the suspension (more on that later) but now its feeling groovy. As pictured below, the bike is not quite "race ready" but you get the idea. My sexy race wheels are getting a little love at the moment.
I think it is pretty crazy, in a good way, that I have a large, full-suspension 29er that weighs just under 23lbs without resorting to stupid parts that will break.
|2013 Scott Spark 900 with a mix of new & old parts|
|Pretty clean cockpit considering the dual remote|
|First bike with a 142mm x 12mm rear axle, and I dig it|
|SRAM XX1...does this cassette make my ass look big?|
|Cockpit Favorites: Enve Bar, K-Edge Garmin Mount, Ergon GP1 Grips, and Thomson Stem|
|The Fox Float CTD Remote Shock replaces the stock DT Swiss Nude2|
|Very clean internal routing and exit port.|
|This DT Swiss 190 hub is at least three years old and still smoove like butter|
|The Fox remote is meant to be run on top of the bar, but works very well under the bar|
