    Love the Voltage and Gambler paint schemes. I wish the colors for the AM and XC bikes were a bit more exciting.

    So there's no 27.5 Scale carbon HT and no disc cross bike?

    I really like the graphic design in this catalog, but what's up with all the typos? Glossing over the gambler introduction I read that there are 2 models, and I clearly see 3. Not trying to nit pick but even in the 2012 catalog, I came across lots of inconsistencies within bike descriptions of the identical frames. Can I get a job proof-reading the literature?

    I came on here to find out what the heck a Spark 930 was. Well then, problem solved. It's a 2013. They put fox forks on EVERYTHING. I'm a little scared to see the prices...

    The new Scott bikes are up in the reviews section.

    $3779.99 MSRP
    Scott Genius 930 29er Full Suspension Reviews


    The Genius 650B bikes range from $9134.99 to $3149.99. Doesn't look like there's one for my budget, but I didn't really expect there to be one.

    Mental lapse from me in linking to the Genius 930. Sorry 'bout that.

    The Genius 930 and Spark 930 are spec'd pretty similarly so it is a good reference point. I get the impression it would fall somewhere in between the 2012 Spark 29 Expert and Pro pricing - maybe $3700.

    I'm impressed with the 1X11 SRAM on those top end models... not that I'd consider them. But I'm not very impressed with some of the colors/graphics. I don't like the glossy carbon frames. The 2012 Spark 29 Pro was the best looking bike I've seen. It's too bad the matte black/yellow Spark 920 doesn't come in 2x10.

    Between the good looks of the 2013 Epic Carbon Comp and (much more importantly) the superior suspension, it will be a hard call - that or the Spark 930. The 930 will probably be at least 20% cheaper than the Epic.

    It's not Black and yellow, its Black and Green.

    As for Epic being a superior suspension, thats debatable. I personally don't like the specialized bikes, some of our team riders have them and let me use it from time to time to compare bikes. I especially HATE the brain.

    Overall both bikes are amazing.

    I took a close look and yea, green. That would probably look really nice in person. But no 2X10 is a deal breaker. As lame and trend oriented as that sounds.

    What were your observations with the brain that made you dislike it? I ask because I really don't have much time on either bike. I demo'd an Epic this summer - first full suspension I've ridden in years. I thought "ah, this is nice. I'll save a grand and buy a Scott" but when I rode the Scott (2012 Spark 29 Expert) I got major cold feet on the deal. It felt like it bobbed around like an old Trek Y-frame... at least compared to the Epic.

    When I rode the Epic, I thought it was locked out or something until I was mauling rocks at 20+ mph down a hill and not crashing. Thinking back, I'm wondering "oh no is the extra grand justified???"

    When i demo'd a 2012 spark 29er i DID accidently leave it locked out 20mph down a rocky slope and it still felt awesome. Tires, tire pressures, susp pressures are all factors of course

    Seems like Scott is missing the boat not riding Ninos coat tails with a 27.5" Scale.

    C. Getting rid of all the freaking triple cranks

    Vs. Specialized, I can't really complain about the prices as I've seen them (and my local Scott dealer has confirmed) ...but man. The 2012 Spark 29 Pro was such a ridiculously awesome deal compared to the '13 Spark 910/920 of comparable price. Yea you get a fox fork with 15mm now, but holy mother is everything else downgraded. The 9mm QR SID with DNA3 on the '12 wasn't exactly a dealbreaker...

    And then there's the colors. And triple craaaaanks. Ugh. Shoulda sprung for a '12 Spark 29 Pro. Shoulda coulda woulda.

    I did, I was asked to take it all down. Not sure why because I made sure to get approval before posting. But I didn't want to step on any toes and cooperated.


    BTW we just got Sparks, Scales, and CR1's in the shop. So I'll post pics of the Scale 960-930 and Spark 940's

    My dealer said the prices he heard were different, didn't say how, but hinted at lower. Perhaps this was partly why you were asked to remove. He confirmed the colors and triple cranks haha.

    The way you guys saw the bikes in the catalog are how they are. I'll snap some shots tomorrow when I go in.

    Fox suspension is confirmed, even the lower end Scale 940 comes with Fox Float.

    Pricing for the Scale 29 Elite with Reba was 1600 this year. The equivalent 950 with Fox 32 was quoted as 1849 low msrp to 1899 high by a LBS off his sheet. That's about an 18% change.

    Yea my buddy picked up that Elite for 1500 out the door, w/tax. I was talking with the dealer about the 2012's, he's not sure how things ended up priced that way last year but it was a crazy one for him. This year the prices are much more realistic, though still a deal vs. specialized or canondale. Maybe Swiss francs were just weak against USD last year..

    w00t! Thank you. Is there just one 650B Scale in the traditional black/white/yellow colors? I was hoping for the matte type look. Anyway, thanks for posting.

    2013 prices have gone up quite a bit. There isn't even a sub $1k bike like last year for the Scales.

    These really look good, thanks for posting the pics. I think I'm going to work a deal on a Spark with the LBS and cross my fingers that they get in before the September/October races.
