    Scott Scale 70, 60, 50 40?
    Anyone out there own one? Are they all on the same frame? I guess I could probably do some more research myself on the frame thing but I also want to know if there are some owners with some good ride reports. I have read some reviews but most just talk about how well they climb and how light they are which is good. I haven't heard much else about Scott and wanted some confidence before dropping $1k+ on another bike. I am most interested in the Scale 50 right now.

    Thanks for any input/reply. Tell me to search if you have to, I understand :thumbsup:

    Same frames, increasingly better parts the lower the the number. I have an '07 Scale 50 and I like it alot. The wheels and the fork are boat anchors of sorts but all of the other parts are good. If you're in the market for a hardtail with a more aggressive racing geometry in the frame then you'll probably like it.

    my good friend has a scale 60. it's not heavy, but it's not light. we tore it down a few days ago and the (large) frame is incredibly light. like queevil said, the rims, fork and cranks are boat anchors. my friend's came with a Manitou Axel Elite which is listed at >6lbs.

    they're solid bikes and great platforms. if you can stretch the budget, try to get the higher end model.

    May I ask if this is a good change or a bad one? I'm not sure if 7005 alum is better than 6061 or the other way around. Thanks

    I think they are the same. Except maybe the new 899.

    If I recall correctly, alu 6061 is alloyed mainly with magnesium (more ductile) and the 7005 is alloyed mainly with zinc (harder and stronger). To be honest, I don't know which one is better for a racing frame.

    I have a 2008 Scale 40 size XL. The only issue I have had with it is it seems to have some frame and wheel flex that makes technical riding a bit tricky. I might be able to stiffen it up some with better wheels, but I can't afford to do that right now. It is a fast bike, though, and very lightweight. Mine is stock except I have an Easton low riser bar and a Raceface 120mm stem. Also, it doesn't climb well, but that is probably more the rider than the bike. ;)

    Medium Scale 70
    Just got this. I'm 175 and the medium suits me. Coming from a road bike, I like the racing geometry of the scale 70 hence my pick over the Trek 6000. The components are decent for the price - Deore /SLX, shimano disc brakes and rock shox tora tk fork. What would I change? probably toss out the free bottle cages - just a nice one will do. And the pedal - looking for a good flat pedal - any recommendation?

    Actually I tried out the Scale 20, 30, 35 and 80.
    Even the Scale 80 with some Shimano parts and XCR fork impressed me with that 10-15 test. Pricing is very competitive as well!

    But the carbon series is sure worth the while to take a look also!
