Scott Aspect 20 2011 Mountain Bike

Scott Aspect 20 Mountain Bike

The Scott Aspect 20 mountain bike is inexpensive for its brand and packed with high performance components, which will not let you down. It is important to realise that the value provided by this bike is relative; it is considerably more costly than the most basic mountain bikes but the reputation offered by the Scott brand shows just how capable it can be without requiring you to spend thousands of pounds for the privilege of owning one.

The alloy frame of the Scott Aspect 20 has some intelligent geometry to make sure that you get good standover and clearance without compromising balance and handling. The front fork from Suntour is able to absorb the bruising punishment of off road conditions whilst still giving you plenty of opportunity to control the bike with precision. It isn’t a stripped-down racer like some of Scott’s other offerings but it makes up for this by offering versatility that makes it useful every day.

Scott has not gone wild with the style of the Aspect 20 for its 2011 revival, so the frame is largely black with some white and grey detailing. The understated nature of this look will appeal to those untroubled by fashion but if you are seeking personality, you’d be better off looking for another Scott model. Having said that, there is no relation between performance and outward appearances, so anyone with a knowledge of bikes will be pleased to see that manufacturers like Shimano have got their components integrated in both the gears and braking systems.
