    2014 Scott Spark 700 SL review

    Initial review of the 2014 Scott Spark 700 SL

    Scott Spark 700 SL | Off the Couch Adventure

    10 second summary- Expensive, super light, climbs like a goat, descends like a demon. Pretty rad bike. Will have to sell a few souls to afford one... be on the lookout for my classified postings!

    Nice write up, thanks e. Curious to know the how it stacks up to the Intense when it comes to suspension traits. Pedaling, braking, small bump compliance.....

    Also, I've read so much about Twin-loc. how tunable is it? Or is it simply set the sag and go?

    Sag and go. I'm not aware of any "tuning" available on the twin loc settings.

    It's not really fair to compare against the Intense... It's not really fair to compare against the Scale. It really is something more than in between a HT and big travel bike. It's a marathon race machine for sure! I'd like to get a few more miles on some chunkier descents to really suss out the suspension qualities. But out of the box, with the twin-loc modes, it was awesome. Lock it out and pedaling up hill is about as stiff as any bike could be. I didn't notice any bobbing while climbing in traction mode.

    I'd really like to get a full weekend of side-by-side riding with a 900 and 700...
