    Scott Spark: Which BB Height do you run?

    Primarily interested in the 29er version, but feel free to chime in if you have the 26 or 27.5.

    And while you're at it, please describe your primary location / trail type(s), and riding style.

    Do you set it and forget it? Or vary it depending on mood, terrain, etc.?

    Thanks for playing the Feud!

    26" 2012 Spark 60, high position, set and forget, so I choose 13.5" over 13" bb height, I think. First ride took it out to the rocks at Santa Teresa, CA and didn't like the uphill pedal strikes in the low and slack mode. I'm mostly XC style so steeper head angle suits me fine.

    Thanks for your input, jpre, as well as whoever also voted!

    Kind of quiet in here...ditto the RBR Scott forum.

    Don't forget the middle position! (Chip available on lower end Sparks). I ran the middle on my 900 RC.

    I must admit, I don't remember there being a middle position, or it would have been represented in the poll.

    That's because unless you are around Scott Spark's a lot, you wouldn't even realize it exists. They don't market it, and it's only on the lower end Sparks. But the hardware exists if you can't find happiness in the high or low. Choosing between high and low, I'd choose low.

    I have a Spark 940 on the way, I'm leaning towards trying the high setting first.

    Please post up how you like the bike!

    I just test rode one today, I liked it a lot, and it's at the top of my list of FS 29'ers. It was a leftover '13 940 for $2500. Fair deal?

    '12 Trek 6000

    I'd say they could come down even more.
