Next to the Scott Addict R1 I was searching for a nice XC mountainbike. Last year I bought a Sensa - nice frame with good specs - but the wish for a Scott XC was still there. some time ago I found what I was looking for.

Speclist :

Frame: Scott Spark team Size: M
Fork: Fox RL 100 White met Scott twinlock
Rear shock: Scott DT Nude twinlock
Headset: Ritchey WCS semi integr. 1 1/8"
Bar: Ritchey WCS Flatbar
Stem: Ritchey WCS Wet black with Richey WCS barends
Crankset: Truvativ Noir
Pedals: Shimano XT
Rear-derailleur: Sram XO
Front-derailleur: Shimano Deore XT FD-M771
Chain: Shimano XTR
Cassette: Shimano XTR
Shifters: Sram XO matchmakers
Seat: Selle Italia SLR FlowXC
Brakes: Avid Elixir CR Carbon
Wheelset: DT-Swiss 240S hubs DT-Swiss 4.1D rims with tubeless rimstrip
Tires: Continental Raceking 2.2 - Michelin latex biba's - Will be Rocket Ron tubeless.

Weight is around 10,4 - 10,5 kg , but will be lichter when I go tubeless - and when some light parts will arrive:

What does the "team" mean? Isn't that a regular Spark RC frame? Anyway nice solid build!

Scott Spark RC 2008 looks different and the Scott spark team was made one year only. Think the weight and setup of the frame are same though - just like the Spark LTD - All 3 have HMX carbon fibre and have the same DT Nude shock - only colours are different or I must have the wrong information about weight and setup :noidea:

2008 RC : Spark RC 2008

2009 Model Team : Spark Team 2009 With nice galery of pics.

Rene,

That is one nice steed!
I hope the planned upgrades will make it even better.

Little update:

Today I got a pair of Rocket Ron 2.25 for the winter wheelset. The DT Swiss 240s will be the winter wheelset in the future, because a pair of DT Swiss XRC 1250 :shock: wheels will arrive tomorrow. They will be equiped with a pair of Rocket Ron 2.1 or otherwise the Furious Fred 2.25.

With this action the bike will lose aprox 500 grams so that is a nice update :thumbup: . Maybe a Scott pilot steer / stem combo will follow if I can find one and some other small light parts arrive soon.

Pics will follow.

Here is a pic with the new wheels - Need 2 / 160 mm discs to complete the setup , but for now 185/160 mm:

And did some other updates - some I have , some will follow next week - like new XTR 980 pedals - Selle Italia Carbonio Flow saddle 132 gram - and last but not least - switched the fork to a new Rock Shox SID Worldcup 8) so hope it will be around 9.2 - 9.3 kg.

I always feel a bit of jealousy when i see something like that and remember that i only have roads around me! I'd love to be in the country on that thing, sometimes a lightweight roadie just doesn;t cut it!

Because the SID is 1380 gr , and the Fox is 1540 gr. I bought the SID for a perfect price at eBay and the SID is at least as good as the Fox - maybe even better with the little bumpy rides. And I don't notice any difference according to stiffness of the forks, so I am happy and the carbon crown of the fork matches the bike perfectly. :!:
