    Scale 960 2016...

    Hi, I'm thinking to get the scale 960. ..what are your thoughts about it? I know is a great frame. ..and probably. ..the fork is the first thing that I will change ...I'm thinking at a lefty!
    Do you guys know if the frame has a quick release in the back or thru axle?
    Thanks

    Specs on the bike you're looking for.

    It's got a quick release. If you're trying to put a lefty fork on it then you're going to need to modify a few things first like the hub. I'm not that knowledgeable on left forks but I know that much. Make sure you get a 100mm lefty.

    Is it just the carbon models that have through axle? Do all the alloy models have quick release?

    Yes. Even though Scott has upgraded its alloy Scale frame for 2016 (SL alloy frame), the rear axle is still a quick release for all alloy Scale models.
