Scott Scale 29 Team 2011 Mountain Bike

Scott Scale 29 Team Mountain Bike

The Scott Scale 29 Team mountain bike has been taken into the workshop and revamped for the 2011 season, bringing with it plenty of brand new features and updated components to make sure that it is as competitive as possible. Like all Scott cycles it is very light, but does this racer have enough punch to persuade you to part with your cash?

One of the biggest additions to the Scott Scale 29 Team comes in the form of brand new disc brakes from respected manufacturer, Shimano. These use a hydraulic system to apply pressure to the discs, providing superior stopping power and giving you greater control over the bike as a result. You can find this kind of feature on more expensive models but it is good to see that Scott is willing to offer it across the range.

In general, I am a fan of the way in which Scott designs its bikes and the black and blue colour scheme mixed with white detailing is in keeping with its other models. Only serious enthusiasts will be able to tell the difference between this bike and one that costs twice as much, which is both a blessing and a curse as it works in both ways; your bike will resemble those that are half the price, which for some may be an issue but for others an irrelevance.
