    Scott Scale 910 - chainstays

    Hi all,

    I recently took my 2015 Scott Scale 910 in for a service to be told by the shop that I had worn the chainstays down.

    Now I suspect that what they are referring to is the design of the frame (particularly as it's even on both sides) - sure there's some paint wear from gritty mud accumulation around the wheel when riding through a UK winter, but I'm certain it's not worn down the carbon.

    (Well not certain enough not to be posting here).

    I'm really hoping another 910 owner can take a look (pic attached) and make a comparison before hopefully telling me I've nothing to worry about!

    Cheers

    I have a Scale 910 and the frame is shaped that way but mine has not worn through the paint like yours has.

    Your tires throwing a bunch of pebbles/gravel? Prob should get some clear wear film, like invisible shield for it or something.

    What size rear tire do you normally run? 2.25 or 2.3 is about the largest tire you can safely fit on the rear of this frameset.

    That doesn't look that bad, but it is difficult to tell exactly how deep it is from the picture. I had a similar issue with my Scott Scale 910 but caught it pretty quick and changed tires. The chainstays on the Scott's are notoriously tight and allow very few options for a rear tire. I've had luck with a Conti Mtn. King 2.2, but nearly everything else, even in the 2.2 range, rubs. Has anyone found a solid rear tire narrow enough for a Scott?

    I'm running a 2.3 Renegade on the rear of my 2015 Scott Scale at the moment. That's the largest tire I'd try on mine. I hope the newly designed 2017 Scott Scales have a little more room in the rear.
