Scott Aspect 10 2011 Mountain Bike

Scott Aspect 10

The Scott Aspect 10 is a good multipurpose mountain bike that comes with plenty of competent components and hits the market at a price point that is relatively affordable when you consider the quality on offer. In fact, at the time of writing this, the 2011 model is £200 cheaper than the 2010 model.

Like most Scott cycles, the benefits come from a very light build that is strong and easy to manage on most surfaces. It will not win any beauty contests but it won’t be a glaring eyesore on the landscape either, so it should appeal to a broad audience.

The alloy frame of the Scott Aspect 10 2011 mountain bike has been endowed with sympathetic geometry that should give you adequate standover height without compromising on the level of control you have whilst steering and manoeuvring. With fork suspension supplied by RockShox you will be able to soak up the rigours of dirt trails and Shimano’s hydraulically-handled braking system with large discs will keep you on the right track.

As I mentioned above, the Scott Aspect 10 is not as outlandish in its design as some of the other cycles made by this manufacturer, but despite its generic looks, it still manages to be an attractive product, with a black and white paint job accompanied by red detailing.
