    Scott spark 950 vs Scott spark 29 elite

    Hey everyone, new to the site and new to the mtb scene. I'm about to buy a used scott 950 or a used scott 29 elite. I just wanted some input as to which is the better bike. I found both of then for 1800.00 used. I'm assuming after some hours of research that this is a fair price for either one. Just trying to figure which one I should get. Any info or input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Found two elites.. One with the following upgrades (2100.00) : Not pictured- Stans Arch EX wheels with Hope hubs. (only one ride on these)
    Switched from the Rock Shox Reba to the SID Rct3 dual air ($800)
    Switched rear shock to Rock Shox Monarch Rt3 ($380)
    -I will include the original DT Swiss shock and the remote lock out cable in case you prefer a lock out. ($300)
    - Also included is a seperate damper that will allow the fork to be locked out on the same remote lever
    Added Eason Ec70 Wide carbon bars ($130)
    Replaced the Tires with Maxxis Ignitor's ($120)
    - will include the stock racing tires, Schwalbe Rocket Ron's ($180) I was saving these for races since they only weigh 560grams


    The other elite (1800.00)
    upgraded wheelset to Mavic Crossrides. Switched to 1x10 and has a MRP G2 mini guide. 34T Raceface chainring. Comes with TwinLoc full lock out switch. Bike has probaly 350 miles on it


    The 950 is stock.. For (1800.00) any suggestions.. I'm leaning towards the
    Elite.. But the 950 seems like the better buy considering its newer
    Thanks again..

    Depends on what kind of condition they are in. From the descriptions i'm guessing the 950 has alot less wear on it than the SID elite, but that's just a guess. Try to haggle with them all and see which gives you the best deal. You won't really know unless you go look at the bikes.

    Bike is super fast and very responsive.. I like it and I really like the dual lockout feature. I'm sure the 26'ers gonna be a bit fast handling. Good bike for the price..
