Scott Aspect 40 2011 Mountain Bike

Scott Aspect 40

The Scott Aspect 40 mountain bike is close to perfect in many respects, with its price balanced appropriately against the level of performance and the type of components you can expect to find. The brakes here are mechanically operated discs and the frame is fashioned from alloy, so there are none of the hydraulic or carbon-based components that you would expect on a top of the line racer. But neither is there a steep cost to bear, as this represents part of Scott’s more modest ranges and it stands out as one of the more desirable models.

Although Scott is behind many of the components with its own in-house designs you can still find many different firms contributing to the Aspect 40 2011. Shimano is responsible for the brakes and gears whilst the front fork features Suntour XCM-H technology. Each component has been carefully selected so that the bike is balanced and agile, helped in part by its overall light weight which makes it good for racing without compromising its performance on tarmac roads.

You can choose to pick up the Scott Aspect 40 2011 mountain bike in either white or green, which should satisfy a relatively broad spectrum of tastes. The construction feels solid with the geometry of the frame designed in a way that the standover height is suitable for most situations without putting things out of kilter. It may be difficult to tell the difference between bikes at this price range, but a careful study of the specifications should unearth the answers you need.
