hello guys,
its my first post in this forum and a i would like to introduce my custom Scott Scale 700 RC
The frame is from 2014 and painted in daytona grey matt, like the Audi RS5 und RS6 racing machines :)
The other parts are more up-to-date with trickstuff, Extralite, Schmolke, Duke, German Answer etc

The part list is in german but i think everyone will understand the brands and product names

The tire clearance with Ikons looks tight around the crown, did you experience any issues riding in muddy conditions?

WOW, what a great build. The color is great (and I like the Audi reference :D ). My similarly set up but much more basic Scale 710 pales by comparison.

i like the tubolito in combination with maxxis maxlight tires. i had no problems with with them.
And with 80g very light. But i will wait next generation the tubolito s-tubo with only 44 gram.
But they are not available yet.

The Grace XC stem is fantastic
77mm length, 77g weight and -7° very suitable for me.
And looking very sexy with that design and Clamping width 56mm :D

not yet.
The tires were installed few weeks ago
I did not have any muddy conditions yet or the opportunity because of winter and snow.
I will test it first and maybe avoid them
There is only 1cm between tires and crown.

The fork is 26" and the wheels are 27.5"
My last fork the DT Swiss XRC 100 had the same size and havent any issues with that combo

Brake was disassembled and cables led through the frame

The frame was prepared by user KaiGreen, one of the top light weight specialists in Germany and with bombastic Bike

I had the same idea for internal brake cable routing but I'm worried if the brake cable beat inside frame when downhill.

You have also expand hole in the head of the frame?
