Hey guys I am brand new to the bike world. I am looking at getting a beginner bike. I have been looking for some time now. I dont have alot to spend so I have been looking at used. Its amazing what some people want for used bikes. Anyway I came across a brand new 2008 Scott Aspect 40 today at one of the LBS's. They have a sale going on and I can get it for $375. List is $500 and $630 for the 2009 model. One very nice perk with this is that this LBS does free tune ups once a year and adjustments whenever you need them for free for as long as you own the bike and they said the frame has a lifetime warranty and Scott is very good to them if anything breaks. I did ride it and it felt good. This being said, what do you guys think? Is this a good bike? Will it last for a while and put up with some abuse? Thanks for all the help in advance, Mike

do it. scott makes some great bikes. this isn't one of their upper echelon bikes but the technology is there and $375 for any new scott bike is a good deal. if you like the way it felt and you're wanting to get into biking then you shouldn't pass this up.

That's a very nice first bike and a hell of a deal you got on it. I recently just got into the sport and wound up with an '07 Scott Scale 50 and am loving it. You did good. The Scale is meant to have more of a racing geometry which means the stem is a little long so I may end up switching it out with a shorter one. Other than that I have no complaints. Let us know what you like and don't like about the bike as you ride it more. Have fun.

I recently picked up an 08 Aspect 20 and I love it. If I had read this post earlier I would have said go for it! Glad you did. I've never had a scott until now but so far its been awesome.
