Strengths:    Value for the money

Weaknesses:    None really

Bottom Line:   
Owned this bike 5 months now, and I am in love...the thing fits like a glove, accelerates well, and the price point is great for the components. I have yet to find a flaw with this thing other than weight ( Mine weighs in at 26.9 lbs which isn't too bad for the price I guess) You may find something that fits you better, but do yourself a favor, and do NOT buy a new bike without test riding a Scott...They really don't skimp on anything...frame nor components....

Strengths:    Bike is light and fast and the price was fantastic for the amount of bike you get. Paid $1,100 ($1,600 w/up-grades)

Weaknesses:    The tires and wheels were upgraded at the time of purchase, so can't really speak to the stock versions. The bike would benefit from having a clutch derailleur as it is a bit clangy on the rough stuff.

Bottom Line:   
So far, so good. I am still looking to upgrade, but only for minor weight loss such as pedals, saddle, seat post and singling out the front chain ring.

Strengths:    Fast, take corners really well, handlebar mounted front fork lockout. Flys downhills with amazing control.

Weaknesses:    Saddle, it takes a long time to break it in, at least mine did. The handlebars were a bit wide for me, I had 1cm taken off each end, this sit me more upright and helped with shoulder pain from a prior injury.

Bottom Line:   
Bought this bike to get back into mnt riding and racing. I'm a "Novice" racer and a clydesdale so I needed a good strong bike with mid priced componets. This bike has it. I have close to 1,000 miles on it in 4 months. I race it almost every weekend as well as take it on 100mile gravel grinders. Great bike for the money!!!

Strengths:    Stiff and fast frame, good components relative to the price.

Weaknesses:    Sattle, but i think i will get use to it.

Bottom Line:   
Was looking for at good entry level MTB and was first considering the Cube LTD 29'er, tried it and it felt ok. But a few days after i took the Scale out for at spin and it felt so much faster. Even though the LTD had at little better components, i liked the frame and design better on the Scale. The shifter work very well, i the shock takes the bumps and brakes do a pretty good job of stopping the bike, i am still fine tuning the shifters, brakes and fork.

For my needs, it is a super deal (MSRP was $1599, i got i for $1379, i fell very confident on it and i am looking forward to taking it out to the woods.

So my lbs has a Scott Scale 960 2013 and an individual I know who has not wore the little stickers off of his 2013 Trek Cobia. I am newbie, so I have come to the experts. The Scott is going to be a little more expensive, but not a great deal more. I look forward to your recommendations. Thanks.Read More »

Scott scale 29er 960

Can anyone find a review of the Scott scale 29er 960. I can't find one anywhere. Does anyone who owns the 960 have an opinion and have you test ridden vs other brands. I went to my lbs but they didn't let me test ride. It feels super light for the price and seems to have good specs.Read More »
