    '13 Spark 910 good deal?

    so the 2013 sparks are being closed out at the dealers around here. the 910 is listed at $3300. i like the specs on this bike except for the rear DT shock. thinking about getting it anyway and possibly switching the rear shock out to a fox in the future (if they make a retrofit). thoughts on this bike at that price? thanks

    But can you still use the Twinlock with the CDT? Could I also swap the shock to a 2012 Spark RC? Thanks.

    I think you might if you get the CTD shock that comes with the remote,and I say might because I talked to fox about a month a go and he told me that they are working on a remote kit for the 2014 CTD that doesn't come with the remote he also said the remote will not work with the 2013 rear CTD none remote shock you would have to make your own remote. I would like to have the U.S. msrp on the spark 930,940.. I have gone back and forth with the Scott Spark and Spearfish 1 & 2 I have a 2012 Spearfish 1 with two remotes the shock on the rear is the X lock and I don't like it all that much because it lock out too much so I'm thinking sell that shock and get the 2014 CTD Fox with the new Fox duel remote and try it with my Manitou Tower Pro fork or just sell the Spearfish and get the Scott all set up and just change the wheelset maybe.

    Obviously later in the year, but I just bought one Saturday for $2900. Shop had to order it and told the wifie there weren't that many available anymore. Couldn't pass it up.

    Fhotos! That is a good deal. I still have my 12 Spearfish I'm not 100% sure I want to sell it yet and I just got a Mukluk2 so we both are having a very good Christmas I would gander to say!

    At 2900 you got a smoking deal congrats!
