i personally didn't owe any Scott frame, but rode several (6-8 ) from my buddies.
1. i'm negative about geometry, (esp short tt).
2. may be it's my personal impression, but many Scott frames have too bulky chain/seatstays, which results in rather harsh ride.
3. overall quality is no good. i personally witnessed several frames crack (1 on downtube, 1 on bb, and one on DT-HT weld), and NON was replaced under warranty.
4. price! :shock:
5. stock stuff on midrange priced bikes. esp. the forks. :x
6. not enough yet?... :roll: i don't like the brank name coz it sounds no good in Russian. :oops: :wink:
