    Spark 2015 : 730, 720 or 710 ?

    Hi all,

    I have a Scott Endorphin well equiped (SID race, XT/XTR, crossmax, lot of carbon...) but old now and I'm looking to replace it.

    I was looking for a used spark or a 2014 with nice price but I'm offered a good deal on the 2015 bikes (enven better than some end of stock 2014).

    I really fancy the color of the 710 but not sure I can justify the price of it (even with the deal)

    I know the frames are the same between those 3, considering I could eventually upgrade the bike later, is there really a point picking the 710 or even the 720 compared to the 730 ?

    are there real differencies that would cost a fortune to change ?

    Thanks

    Snowfree52,

    The frames, as you mentioned, are all the same. Hmf carbon main frame/ alum swingarm.
    The only difference is the components. The 710 is all XT. If you like the color (red/white/blue) I say get that one. It maybe a little more than you want to spend, but it's going to be cheaper to buy the whole bike with XT than to upgrade to it later....

    well thanks for the answer.

    I actually bought a second hand 730 2014 for a bargain last week. I saw this morning the 710 2015 at the shop and god it's gorgeous !

    Maybe for next year !

    well, not yet, the bike hasn't been used much since I bought it, I've been very busy and will probably keep it
