    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.

    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.

    Attachment 1001783

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

    Attachment 1001784

    Attachment 1001785

    Attachment 1001786

    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.

    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?
  • 08-02-2015
    MattMay
    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.

    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?

    Attachment 1035387

    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.
