    Just picked it up last night from the Golden bike shop. Great service!

    Made the following changes from stock: Upgraded the cassette, handlebars, reduced the size of the rotors, converted to tubeless, changed the seat post to a lighter one with zero setback.

    ... and if we just ...

    Just picked her up today, regardless of what the date says on the photo lol. Coming off a $600 26er hard tail, wow this thing has blown me away. Can't wait for the weather in Ohio to cooperate! It's a small, and yes it has reflectors that will stay on there. I do a ton of street riding and my life is worth a few grams.

    What size frame is that and what bottle cages are you using? I can't seem to fit both of my bottles in my medium. They hit each other.

    That could be a large. I have a med and I can fit one normal size and one three quarter size bottle only.

    Can anybody tell me whether a Panaracer Rampage (at 2.35) will fit on a Scale (comp) frame? I've read that the frame was designed around a 2.4, but with a 2.25 it gets tight.

    Scale SS

    32x18 is the the magic gear. One of the best riding bikes I've ever been on. Just rips on the descents. I've been setting PR's all over the place.

    32x18 is the magic gear also on my carbon Stumpy Evo R. No chain tensioner needed.

    2011 Elite. Everything is stock, though I am missing the lockout cable. My compression damper needed to be replaced. Love this bike.

    Last night stripped the entire new bike down to frame and seatpost (maybe the largest heaviest piece of metal in existence). Build is as follows:

    2012 Scott Scale Expert frame, Large

    XTR 11-36 cassette
    XTR Shadow Plus mid-cage rear derailleur
    XTR trigger shifters
    XTR chain

    XT 38/26 crankset
    XT disc brakes (coming in, right now it has horrific heavy bottom of the line Avid crap)

    WTB Devo titanium saddle (on all my bikes)
    Foundry Whisky Parts #7 740mm carbon bar
    Stan's Crest wheels (my carbon wheels coming in soon) with tubeless Specialized tires
    Eggbeaters
    Ritchey WCS Ergo foam grips
    Scott brand 90mm stem. ain't too heavy
    2012 RockShox SID RCT3 100mm fork (will cut steer tube down an inch or so now that build and fit are complete)

    Went with the XT crankset and brakes because my other bikes are full XTR 985 and I didn't feel the need to go XTR in these two and save some $$$.

    2013 Scale 910

    hi all. tested d bike last weekend on a technical trail with lots of root & technical climbs (d rainy season made it lot more technical than usual) and i've to say it rocks! the bike never loses grip on the technical climbs so it keeps wanting to go fast. only downside is that u need a lot of power to keep the momentum going. a lighter wheelset should make things a little easier but i'll look into that in a couple months. overall very happy and prefer this over my old 26 HT (merida) and 26 FS (ibis mojo SL)!

    My new (to me) 2012 Scale Team

    I just picked this up last week for $700 off of Craigslist from a college professor that never rode her. She is virtually brand new and my first 29er...I'm in love. Pics are just from my Droid, but I am really glad I bought the Scale. I was going to get a Cobia (I liked the Chi Red 2012) but this one showed up and I believe it has better components (save the fork) than the Cobia.

    My scale does an outstanding job making the climbs necessary for these views.

    Scale 720

    Bought a Spark 700 late last fall. Really enjoyed the 27.5 wheels, so decided to go that way for my hardtail race bike as well.

    I had already bought a spare set of Stans Crest wheels for my Spark, plus I had an XTR groupo on my Scale Pro 29er, so I decided I would swap some parts, sell my Scale 29er, plus my extra race wheels and get down to 2 bikes/3 wheels sets. I got a good deal through my race team/shop/distributor, so I went 720 to get the carbon frame. I actually wanted the 730, preferred the colour and 2x10 drive train, but the wheels weren't 15mm and 12x142 through axles.

    Not quite the final product. Still need to swap a couple things (like seatpost) to get the weight down further. 22.08 lbs as shown.

    Sweet 740!! They are a pretty decent build for the price! Fast too. Got my son a 940 to race this year! Love the paint scheme on that model.

    Beautiful XC machine.
    Just out of curiosity, the Scott website lists this model's weight as 11,30kg (24.91 lbs), without pedals.

    Have you ever weighted it?

    I have not yet, but I will try to tommorow and let you know! It feels light to me, so I imagine their weight of just under 25 pounds is correct.

    Scott Scale 910, Niner fork, Light Bicycle carbon wheels, carbon seat post, Selle Italia seat, Flat Force Stem, Easton SL90 bars, should have just bought the frame and built it up because not much is original, love this bike, just wish I could find another crown race to quickly change forks back to suspension and back.

    Hello! I ended up getting Scale 740 for myself, too. Amazing bike, fantastic geometry, huge upgrade from my Trek 4500! I had the wheelset and tyres upgraded right out of the box and I've just recently weighed it: 24.63 pounds with XT pedals. The thing is, I never had a chance to get to know the actual weight of the factory setup. Again, just out of curiosity, if you have the bike with the original setup and have chance to weigh it, I'd really appreciate it.

    Thanks. I've tried it yesterday on our trails here where I live and it was amazing, though with a bit of fear scratching the bike during the ride :-)

    2014 Scott Scale 960

    Just bought a 2014 Scale 960 size XL from my LBS. Got it for $870. My LBS had it on sale for $1200 but I got them to match a price from REI online. They usually provide lifetime "silver" tuneups for bikes bought from the store but with the price match they would not include that. I weighed my options and figure I will be working on my own bikes going forward so the $330 saved is worth it. Who knows, maybe I will come to regret it.

    The test ride and one mile ride home was a blast. I like the geometry and the bike feels really light and nimble.

    The only thing so far that I don't like are the grips. They have this honeycomb pattern that digs and cuts into my hands. I guess with gloves it should be OK. Can I change the grips without changing the bars? I didn't see any screws.

    I will keep this thread posted with ride reports, etc. I have been doing a little fat biking but never had a 29er and getting back into the sport after a while.

    I hope this is the right bike for me.

    2013 Scale 920 Makeover

    I've decided to make a summer project of this 2013 Scale 920 medium frame I won on an Ebay auction. It weighed in at 1070g.

    Scott Scale Pics-img_4002.jpg

    Seller listed it as "excellent" condition. When it came, it was more like Good-Fair.

    Scott Scale Pics-img_4018.jpg

    Scott Scale Pics-img_4017.jpg

    Scott Scale Pics-img_4016.jpg

    I didn't like all the blemishes. And I'm not wild about the older neon green...sortuva duller yellowish green in person. I'm going to make this a lightweight racing machine, so I decided step one was make it look fast. I decided to change the colorway. I like the red-black-white combo, so I ordered some 3M 1080 vinyl wrap, which I taught myself how to use in changing the colorway of my trail bike (Santa Cruz Solo/5010), along with how to use knifeless tape. I ordered matte black, gloss black, red, white vinyl swatches (1 x 5 ft), along with some Scott frame decals in various colors and sizes, all from eBay. I couldn't find Scale decals, so I just used Scott decals in different sizes.

    I don't like screaming logo advertisements, though, but I wanted to keep the Scott identity, so I went with gloss black lettering. I sanded down the blemish ridges as much as I could. I laid down a strip of matte black first to cover the old letters, then applied the proper size frame decals.

    Here's the end result, adding only 20g of weight to the frame.

    Scott Scale Pics-img_4104.jpg

    Scott Scale Pics-img_4108.jpg

    Scott Scale Pics-img_4107.jpg

    I'll update the final outcome after the full build, but I think I'll start a separate thread for the component-by-component project, which is going to be a lightweight-but-not-super-weight-weenie-on-a-budget kind of project. I know folks have gotten these to 17 lbs, but I want a usable xc racer in the 18-19.5 lb range, without spending a fortune. My goal is $3000, using mostly near-new or supersale/last model year parts. eBay, PinkBike, Craig's List, et al here I come.

    Very nice build Matt. Is that the kind of terrain you ride it on that you show in the pics? Seems really rocky and technical. How does the Scale handle it?

    That's just the top of a climb with rocks on the edge...not part of the trail. For posing only! I have taken it down a few very short rocky sections...sorta like the Beatrice section of Mt Saint Anne World Cup race I watched today, and and its not nearly as bad as I thought.

    Just picked up my 4th Scale. First was an '06 Ltd 26'er, then '10 29'er aluminum, then '11 carbon 29'er RC I kept until last year. Missed it, Scott hardtails just "fit" me. 2016 900SL. Got in two days of riding at two great trails before the rains started!

    Lighter weight and simplicity. I race and not having the stutter in cadence/power of a front shift saves seconds at technical sections/ changes of gradient, when you need the seconds most!

    Yeah I'll never go back to a front derailleur after removing mine. There are cheap Chinese carbon seat posts on Ebay that will fit the Scale, but they have no set back, however I have one and it works for me.

    You can use a shim and get the seat post you want. I did that with my Scale 920 and it worked great. Just used some carbon paste and I was able to put a dropper post on it.

    Where did you get your shim from? I got one sent from a US company but it was only 50mm long which didn't even put it below the seat stays so basically useless and liable to damage a carbon frame, really need one about 100mm. Why would anyone bother to make a 50mm shim?

    Hey Smilerz, I too am interested in the shim for my 920, as I'm contemplating a dropper. Love it on my trail bike and a lightweight 100mm dropper might be perfect. Not sure that new carbon Lev at 65mm would be enough of a drop. What did you do?

    Hi, here is where I purchased the shim.

    Here is where I got the shim. It worked perfect.

    Here's mine with its new wheels, DT Swiss 190 hubs (found on sale on eBay) with Stan's Alpine 330g rims, laced up by Dave Thomas at Speed Dream Wheels. (This is the fourth set of wheels he's built for me, and I highly recommend him.) These replaced the wheels that came with it when I bought it and saved ten ounces.

    I'm now using Orange Seal Endurance sealant in the Continental Speed King II Racesport 26 x 2.2 tires (which are not carried by the US distributor, and were ordered from starbike.com and bike-discount.de in Germany). I've found that the tires retain their pressure longer with Orange Seal Endurance than with anything else I've tried.

    Another recent upgrade is the Syntace P6 HiFlex 34.9mm seatpost. I had been searching for one of these on eBay and got this slightly used one for $99. These are made 480mm long (almost 19 inches), and I had to shorten it because of the upper bottle cage bolt on the seat tube. Weighing just a bit less than the 31.6mm Thomson Masterpiece seatpost and 57g Scott Ransom seatpost shim it replaced, it does a fine job of smoothing out the ride, and I consider it a worthwhile improvement.

    Hopefully, the next improvement will be to the rider.
