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:

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:

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. :!:
