    Strengths:    Light with XT drivetrain!! My son had an older one that was recently stolen, we broke down and bought a new one for my daughter. If you want the kids to actually ride mountain trails, it seems unfair to ask an 80lb kid to ride a 40lb bike that doesn't even shift or brake well - this bike is smooth, light and both kids immediately recognized the weight difference. See a bunch of these on Utah trails. Full range of low gearing, unlike most other Jr bikes allows kids to slow down and just pedal up steep stuff.

    Weaknesses:    Price - keep it locked and/or put away at all times! Shouldn't be used as a bike to to ride to friend's house and left on front lawn.

    Bottom Line:   
    If you live around and plan on biking actual mountain trails, this is a great bike for kids - the weight Maybe buy a garage sale special for general use and reserve this for specific rides.

The Scott is nice out of the box, but there were a few things I wanted to do to make it more kid and height friendly, such as, convert to 1X setup and change cran ... Read More »

    Backed over real wheel of sons Scott Scale RC JR...not a good day...

    ...bent the rim and popped off a few spoke nipples. Rim is shot. We (the LBS and myself) are having a crazy hard time finding another Alex 24" rim with 24 spokes to rebuild the wheel. So hard of a time that it is looking like we might have to build a wheel from scratch with a Deore hub and a Sun ... Read More »

    Scott Scale RC Jr?

    Hi everyone, I was hoping someone could help me locate a Scott bike dealer somewhere in or near Ontario.
