Scott Sportster 40 2011 Women's Hybrid Bike

The Scott Sportster 40 may look good with a basket full of shopping on the back and lime green mudguards affixed to the front and rear wheels but this is not a bike that will shy away from anything more than a light trip around town. It has racing and off-roading in its bloodline and gives you all the features you will need to enjoy a sporty riding experience. It is also sedate enough to act as a calm platform for basic transport to work or the shops, so you get the best of both worlds with this true hybrid cycle.

Scott Sportster 40 Overview

There is plenty included with the Scott Sportster 40 that will make it perfect for female riders. You get an alloy frame, which is robust and light, complete with a front fork from Suntour, which offers 63mm of travel to take the punishment that typical roads can dole out when unseen potholes and ragged surfaces loom large. You also get 27 gears with Shimano components and Schwalbe tyres to make sure you do not lose your grip.

The mixture of white and lime green elements on the Scott Sportster 40 make it a strikingly appealing bike. It will not be to all tastes but it definitely has a fresh, modern visual style, which will win it many admirers. It is a shame that the extras like a rack, basket and mudguards are not included in the basic retail package but they can be picked up separately and easily fitted if you want to kit it out with all the extras.
