Scott Aspect 50 2011 Mountain Bike

Scott Aspect 50

With a light alloy frame that is ready for a bit of rough and tumble and a plentiful array of quality components, at this appealing price point the Scott Aspect 50 2011 mountain bike is one to watch. It is nice to see Scott expanding its colour options to two with a plain black sitting alongside a glorious sunflower yellow alternative, guaranteed to outshine any drab competitors.

As Scott incrementally ups the price of its Aspect range bikes it also adds new components to justify these increases. Here, there are a number of improvements on the base models and a couple of features that are consistent with those bikes that are considerably more expensive. 24 gears from Shimano’s quality system combine with a frame from Scott and pedals from Wellgo to make up a suitably diverse set up that should be ready to race or be prepared for a gentle jaunt around the neighbourhood. This duality of racing prowess and unthreatening comfort is just what you want from a bike at this price point where the potential owners are not likely to be hardcore riders.

As previously pointed out you can choose between yellow or black colour schemes for the Scott Aspect 50 2011 mountain bike, with the former providing exuberance for those who seek it and the latter offering a less eye-catching take on the same basic formula. In either colour the bike looks like a quality piece of kit and definitely represents that aesthetic flourish with workmanship and a tactile finish that promise great things. Once the bike is yours it is up to you to take advantage of what it has to offer.
