Scott Spark 50 2011 Mountain Bike

Scott Spark 50

The Scott Spark 50 is the white knight of the mountain bike world, riding to the rescue of enthusiasts who want to up their ability to compete and increase their speed without having to grow a second pair of legs.

You will definitely want to put the Scott Spark 50 through its paces off the beaten track because it relies on lots of different technology that is designed to chew up tricky terrain and spit it out at speed. Firms including Schwalbe and Shimano have contributed bits of their kit to the construction of the Scott Spark 50 and although the technical details may not mean much to you, it is always reassuring to see a well known brand name attached to a product like this.

The Scott Spark 50 2011 mountain bike is white all over with blue detailing. Although this will quickly show the dirt that is sure to be flicked onto its frame during outdoor use, it will quickly lose the sheen of newness in favour of a much more rugged, well-used look that most serious riders prefer. The adjustable distance of travel is another nice touch which I think will be useful to those who like to create a bespoke riding experience, giving you the option to enjoy greater traction when required as you pick either 110mm or 80mm or travel.
