Date Reviewed: November 20, 2001

Strengths:    Looks cool, light...

Weaknesses:    Lots of flex between crank and rear wheel. Was creaking 2 months after i got it, now has serious cracks around the deformed BB. This frame is cool but has no substance.

Bottom Line:   
Pretty shocking frame, everything else not made by scott is fine.

Submitted by Sebastian Sobczynski a Cross Country Rider from Lodz, Poland

Date Reviewed: June 3, 2001

Strengths:    It's stiff enough not to lose energy but soft and forgiving on your back when the ride becomes bumpy. Great finishing and paintwork. Looks exotic.

Weaknesses:    It cracks!!! I've just specced the bike with new rear V - brakes and they proved too be too powerful for the frame. It shouldn't have happened with a top end product like this. The crack's not a big one and ther's certainly a remedy for it but it means I'll have to use mainly the front brake.

Bottom Line:   
It's a lighter option of full suspension. Perfect when you want to be seen. Most comfartable frame I've ever ridden. Hadn't it been for the cracking I'd really give my thumbs up for it.

Strengths:    it's black....

Weaknesses:    WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER EXPERIENCED

Bottom Line:   
nice bike, but it broke, also my friend's one. pure accident? I hope so. But Scott just created additional problems, they refused to replace the frames. DO NOT SUPPORT SUCH PROCEDURES!!!! they should learn what customer satisfaction is all about. I would never support such a bad company again!

Weaknesses:    
somethimes it seems that the rear weel passage is too narrow when you run on heavy mud conditions, but...


Bottom Line:   
simply great if you want performance at your best both climbing and downhilling and don't want to buy a heavy and expensive full suspended.

Bottom Line:   


Well ... all I can say is - I am impressed by it. Light, great climbing and a lot of feeling.
The rear does it's job very well, expecially on macadam and bumpy roads, where you don't need a full suspension bike. It does not give away under pressure, so you don't loose any extra energy ...
in general - buy it !

Bottom Line:   


This frame is the best i ever bought. Mine is 97 and got 1 inch of travel
with out the extra weight ( 98's has only half inch). In first saw i tought
that the frame will not do the job, but after more than a year of punishment
the frame still doing his job very well, the only problem that i found is
that this frame don't allow a triple clamp fork.

Date Reviewed: March 4, 1998

Bottom Line:   


This frame is the best I have ever ridden. It is stiff on climbs yet gentle on your back when you have to grind some tread on the downhills. I am planning on purchasing anotherone to keep for my next bike. Not only does it ride great, the frame turns heads anywhere with its unique design. No chainstays and the classic weave of carbonfiber mixed with thermoplastic make this frame a one of a kind anywhere.

Submitted by Brian a racer from Las Vegas,Nevada

Date Reviewed: January 9, 1998

Bottom Line:   


This frame is the smoothest ride I have ever had! I just purchased it for $800 with the seat and post!
The best price around for a sweet thermoplastic ride. The rear has an inch of travel due to the
thermoplastic swingarm flexing, it's laterally stiff, but has a very smooth ride.

Handbuilt bikes in pro racing today

What hand built bikes and builders are active in pro racing today (road and mtb)? I am sure some other hand built carbon bikes are being used but for the most part it seems that factory bikes are the norm. Many riders need to hide their custom bikes (i.e. under different paint but this seams har ... Read More »
