I wouldn't put it above the 20 lb/9 kg mark. Man I've always been amazed at Scott's engineers, why the heck don't hey start feeling the american market. Yes they'd be expensive as hell but imagine the waves they'd create, making tough competition for Giant, Trek, C'dale, etc...

LTD version 5400 Euro...

according to the newest german magazines the flagship of those HTs, the "Scale Limited" will cost 5400 Euro. i guess that already includes 16% german Tax.
so without those 16% that's still 5600 US$

the bike is said to weigh 8.7 kilos/ 19 lbs and Scott is usually pretty accurate with its weights. the bike features:
lightest available Carbon frame
SID Worldcup
DT wheels with DT ceramic rims
Race Face Deus Crankset
XTR shifting
Avid V-Brakes
SLR Kit Carbonio saddle
Ritchey WCS stem
Ritchey WCS Carbon Handlebar

about the only item you would have to change are the tires which are some Scott labeled rubbers.

Hey Nino,
any idea if it's available frame only? or one of the lower Scales are? Disc too, right?
Cuz, I know you're crazy about Vs but I like discs..

$5600. whoa.
You realize the frame alone would be more than half of that price. And ya just sold yer moots... I do have a question though, so my post is not pointless. Will it be available through US scott dealers? I would imagine so, but does anyone know for sure?

frameset fo disc and V

you sure can get framesets too.
the complete bikes all come with discs except the most expensive one, the Limited. the framesets will have both options i guess.

5600$ is based upon my calculation.it might be less, who knows. but the best never was cheap..for that money you get a bike that only needs other tires.8.7 kilos and componentry you can race right out of the showroom floor.
