Scott Spark 900 sl: Guest Blog

Scott Spark 900 sl

We’ve pulled in Fitzy Team Rider Dave Byers’ blog about his initial ride report on the Scott Spark 900 sl.   Enjoy his review.

2013 Spark 900 Hotness

When Fitzgerald’s Bicycles generously offered the team a chance to buy a 2013 Scott bike/frame on a “one-time only” offer” I knew exactly what my choice would be. I wanted to lighten up the race bike for 2013 and the Spark 900 PR definitely saves some weight over my previous Giant AnthemX 29. I really like the way the AnthemX 29 rides so I was a little nervous about whether I would like the Scott as well as the Giant.

After four rides, I can say that I really like the way Spark 900 rides. It took me a few rides to dial in my position and the suspension (more on that later) but now its feeling groovy. As pictured below, the bike is not quite “race ready” but you get the idea. My sexy race wheels are getting a little love at the moment.

I think it is pretty crazy, in a good way, that I have a large, full-suspension 29er that weighs just under 23lbs without resorting to stupid parts that will break.

You can check out Dave’s Blog here. Please note that Dave built his bike with different components than what is on the stock bike that you will find in the shop.
