    Scott Spark 950 vs 940 ?

    Hi guys,

    Currently I ride a Scale 960 but I'm now ready to venture into the world of FS. Two options - the 2014 Scott Spark 940 which recently caught my eye vs the 950.

    Can anyone help to advise specs-wise what are the key differences / what to look out for / etc. between the 2 ? Or is the 940 well worth the extra dough over the 950 ?

    I have noticed n the mtb world you get what you pay for. Pay for it now or pay later for the upgraded parts. My 2 cents!

    Just compare the components of each of the bikes on Scott's website (that's what I did), and you'll see that there a many component upgrades to the 940. I just received my Spark 940 (the shop is building it up right now), and the bike tech says it looks like it has very nice set of components on it. I agree with the attitude that you should initially get as much bike as you can afford rather than shelling out additional $$ to upgrade later on.

    Have fun deciding!
