    Here is my Spark, a 2011 Spark 40. Just a few upgrades, with a shorter 3T ARX Team stem, KCNC handlebar, Specialized grips and saddle, cut the seatpost down to 350mm, and the switch from the XT triple crankset, to the 1x10 setup running a 32t front ring. I also have a picture next to my Scott CR1 Road Bike. I love Scott bikes, and they are not as common to see as the other big names.

    I have a question to whom had experienced both new and old Spark frames.

    I have a 2008 carbon Spark and love the bike. Quick, light, high quality frame.

    Looking to the new model geometry, considering the seat tube angle, bike looks more "trail oriented" than the older "xc racer" model.

    Is it true?

    I sent you a pm,but not sure if you got it.

    My wife and I usually ride the yellow and blue trails a few times a week after work around 6 or 7 when it cools down.

    Let me know if you would like to ride sometime next week.

    Going to be picking up one of these soon, what is better though, a spark 50 or 60 right away or a spark 70 and upgrade it? Btw, I'm a trail rider/downhill.

    Truthwalker, I have the Spark 70 because I got it at a price I couldn't say no too. All the components work great as is. I have no reason to upgrade until something breaks. The only thing you don't get on the 70 is Twin Lock. If you have the funds, go for that as it seems like a very nice feature, although, you can add it to the 70 (as I probably will do). Either way, you will get a remarkable bike that rides awesome!!!!! Welcome to the club, and post your picture when you get it!!!!!!

    finklfam, I almost like that color combination better then mine......almost. Very nice looking bike. I hope to get a carbon Scott one day when I earn it with my improved riding abilities. Maybe it will be the new 650b???? Hopefully they put those on a Spark.......still one of the nicest looking bikes on the market.

    Hello Spark owners , does anyone know the weight of alu 2012 Spark , frame with shock only , 26 inch version?
    And does it pedal bob much when it's pushed to the limit on uphills , on lockout mode of course?

    Love them, light and subtle. 127tpi makes a difference. Weight as advertised is 540gr, they are coming in within 10%, under 600gr. Usually see them from 520 to 560

    I was going to break out the wife's DSLR and get artsy, but she's sore enough about me getting this thing as it is, AND I'd rather just ride the bike.

    PM'd. Yea I like the 2013's a lot, and the fox/15mmQR/Shimano brakes are probably worth the premium... but had to follow my heart here

    I took out a demo, then had to build up my own. This is what I ended up with. Not the most plush suspension, but it's the only 29er FS I could see using as a race bike, the geometry is dialed too.

    22.7 lb.
