    2013 Scott Spark 900 RC cool electronic build

    As you guys are aware of my builds, I decided to do something a little different this time, decided to do a build that isn't very popular but with a twist.

    I'm gonna be retrofitting the Shimano Ultegra Di2 setup and will be utilizing the Fox iCD electronic suspension fork and shock. I started the build today and will update as parts arrive. Unfortunately, even with my shop prices, this is a pretty expensive build and will take a little bit of time. Enjoy in the meantime and if my project plans, I'll make a little guide of what you need and sizing etc etc.

    2013 Scott Spark 900 RC cool electronic build

    Looking forward to the build. Newb alert: what are all those colored sticks that are hanging on your stand? I've seen them at every LBS, but have no idea what they are for.

    Those colored sticks are Jagwire cable housing colors and end caps. They're for customers who want to pick color for their cabling, you get to see how it looks in person without us having to order a crap load of them.

    Handlebar and Stem arrived yesterday. The whole setup weighs less than most carbon handlebars or carbon seatposts.

    Rear shock arrived, waiting on fork to arrive later this week. Crank comes soon as well. Almost finished with this *****. Was able to do some experimenting on it.

    My shifting is electronic, no mechanical cables. My suspension is activated by a button. Very fast, precise and reliable.
