    Nice! I would be interested to see a real world weight for the expert model if you get a chance.

    Thats actually the cosmetic carbon layer. This is visible on every bike. Just the way they bonded the top layer.



    Here's my new bike, Spark 29 Expert. This was the only medium we had left over, all the pro's were sold so my boss let me snatch this up.

    Bought a new work stand to go with the build.

    I think we received like 6. Along with a bunch of experts, elite's, comps, etc etc. Customer came and picked up 2 Medium Spark Pro's, and 1 Scale 29 medium Pro.

    Yea, we just got them in yesterday. Less than 4 hours go by, we didn't even unload them from the pallet. Customer asks for a Spark Pro in L. We joked around and said if he wants it, unpack the pallet and bring all the bikes in. Turns out he wanted it so bad that he did unpack it, brought all the boxes in. Built his bike which is the pic you see up there.

    His was a large and with the Fox fork and heavy pedals he used, bike weighed in at 26lbs flat/even.

    I hope those were 1.5 lb pedals. That bike is supposed to come in at 24.5.

    That Fox fork probably weighs more than the stock SID. Also, I think 24.5lbs is for the medium frame.

    Cheers!

    Nice eye. Didn't even see that fox on there. I'm a fox lover as well but I'm not sure I'd ditch it with the availability of the remote lockout on the SID. I'm going back and forth with the decision between the Spark 29 Pro, Scale Pro, and Scale RC. I want to try the FS but don't want too much of a weight penalty.

    My medium Spark 29 Expert came in at 26lbs flat. This is the way it comes out of the box.

    I'm confident I can get it down to 22lbs.

    Is that 26lbs with the pd-m540 pedals included? I ask because the online spec says it comes with those pedals.

    No I didn't weigh with the pedals and yes they come with them.

    Anyone interested in a Scale Expert/Pro :P

    All I can say is Damn!!!.

    The way this bike rides is incredible. Probably the best full suspension bike I've used. The climbing on this is spectacular.

    Does that mean you are new to clipless pedals also? If so, start with some flats and get comfortable with your bike first. Since it sounds like you got a fairly high end bike, I'll assume you want some quality clipless pedals. Lots of people like Crank Bros. pedals. They are fairly light and cheap. I like Xpedo for the same reason but I like the SPD interface better.

    Thanks - I am a serious roadie and have ridden speedplay x3 years. I am a bit of a weight weenie so what do you think are the lightest (without breaking the bank and upsetting the wife)?

    I work for the largest Scott dealer in the US. We get priority. I also wouldn't say we got them quickly, we've been waiting since September along with the rest of the country.

    Stick with Speedplay then. I used their MTB pedals for about 10 years. They have tons of float and can be pretty light for less than $150. Only problem is, they aren't very popular so if you like to switch out bikes with friends it'll be hard to do, oh, and they are a tight fit on some shoes.
