    Just made a similar switch. 2013 epic expert to 2015 spark rc. Haven't been able to ride it yet. Worried I'll miss the brain, which I love. How does the spark compare in your opinion?

    I liked my sworks brain (had in front and rear). I think it does well climbing because it is active when it needs to over rough and stiff when smooth climbing. That is a pro. A con is when you stand up and pedal for a burst it would break loose and not be stiff. On the descents, I always felt like my brain was pretty stiff and took just that quick sub second to break lose. Others that had more plush suspension had advantage. I live in Colorado so we ride a lot of rocks and lots of climbing.

    On the spark, twin lock is really excellent. I use it like a gear! Fully locked out is really locked out and advantage in many places. middle (trail mode) is good all around (climbing and pedaling). Fully open is way better than brain. So I think the spark is a vastly better as descending (head angle is a different to so that helps). So I think the twinoc is a game changer because you control as you see things you need to change where as the brain does it thing but not right for all things (still pretty good). I like the specialized no doubt but I really like the spark as well. I have not raced this 15 bike yet but did race a 14 last year. Top of line scott is 1k less than the top of line specialized too...

    Yeah I think having manual control is a much better setup. I like locking it out for short moments right when I want to for certain situations.

    Thanks for that Wolf_Racer! Agree the Scotts are well priced, and I really like the Sram drivetrain with XTR brakes! Although, I almost bought the premium to try the new XTR 11spd, as I loved the 10spd xtr. Can't wait to race mine!
    One thing I didn't like about the brain, was the small bump compliance wasn't great with the brain set up the way I liked it. Also, when I hit any drops, even small ones, it bottomed out. Especially the fork. (SID brain also)

    Help re-assembling Spark 910

    Sparks...lets see em-pic-5.jpgSparks...lets see em-pic-3.jpgSparks...lets see em-pic-2.jpg[ATTACH=CONFIG]First off, lots of cool bikes posted and love the spark. I have a 2013 spark 910 upgraded with carbon wheels, bars, seatpost, 1x10 wolftooth 36t 11-40. Weight is around 25lbs. Recently serviced the fork and decided to replace all bushings & bearings.

    I am in the process of putting it back together and was hoping someone might be able to help.

    There are 6 washers/spacers in the suspension pivot points that I need to install. Two red(largest), two gold, and four black spacers(smallest). I have a good idea of where they go but I am not certain. Please see picture of washers/spacers below

    Anyone have a diagram of all pieces and instructions on how to install?

    Here is my new 2014 Spark 720! It was a great upgrade from my old Specialized Epic!

    Currently gathering parts to convert it to a 1x10 (AbsoluteBlack 32T Oval Chainring + Oneup 42T and RADr Cage) and tubeless!

    Cheers!

    Pics of my 2014 Scott Spark 930. I've had it for about one month now, but only 4 rides on it so far. It won't stop raining here I'm thinking about adding some colored accents. What color do you guys think would look better, green or orange?

    ^^^. Black, white, or blue for accent colors. Three colors is enough. Adding a fourth is pushing it, IMHO.

    But then again, I'm pushing 50, so what the hell do I know? Just stay the hell off my lawn.

    Feel your pain with the rain. It's been raining here and is now cold again.
    Nice looking ride. How do you like the flows on that. Was thinking overkill, but probably lighter than what comes on it, and nice and strong.
    I agree with dje31, that another colour might be too much. Depends on what parts you're thinking about. Ano blue would probably look good.

    They are most definitely overkill. They were the only wheels I had though, and they are better than the stock wheels. It weighs about 26#s right now. I think I just want some colored grips.

    I think the orange grips would look better with the blue decals.

    Quick question for my fellow spark owners running a 1x setup...

    When you remove the front derailleur do most of you remove the mounts completely, or do you leave the mount sans-derailleur on the frame? I took mine off last weekend but was torn as to whether there was any reason that I should leave it attached?

    I took the small alloy f. Dérailleur bracket off and mounted it to my unused dérailleur. More open space and less things to collect mud was my main reason.

    Yes, I've been out of MTB racing for a few years and did a local race a couple weeks ago on my 29 lb Genius. Forgot how much fun it was so I ditched the heavyweight and got this sweet thing ordered right away.
    Really happy how this one will completely Lock Out front and rear whereas my Genius would barely get any stiffer. Feels fast on my street lol.
    Don't know if I'm gonna go back to Cat. 1 or hang out in Cat. 2 for a while

    Got a good deal on 2013 Spark 900 RC frame.
    Changed the shock and fork to 2014 Fox iCD and added XTR di2 1x11 with sram XO1 cassett and XX1 crank.
    10,18kg as on the picture with bottle cage and pedals.
    Still need to cut the steerer tube, but other than that I think i`m finished.

    Just got a 2015 Scott Spark 950! Im absolutely in love. I love the way it rides and i love the color combo. The twinloc is amazing. One of the reasons why I chose it over a Stumpjumper. Put a carbon handlebar and water cage, shimano saint pedals and looking for some decent wheels next.

    2012 Spark Comp.

    Sparks...lets see em-image.jpg

    Here's my 2012 Spark Comp. I love this bike. Still need to upgrade the rear shock, or just pump it up as it feels a little saggy. Here's a question: Anyone know how wide of a rear tire the 2012 will take? I'm looking at a 2.4" tire from Maxxis but I don't want to buy it if it will rub on the frame. Thanks!

    I'd say no, a 2.4" tire will not fit on a Scott Spark. However, I'm not 100% sure. My guess is only because an XC bike (modern ones) are made to be light and nimble so adding on an all mountain burly tire doesn't suit an XC bikes true characteristics.

    Can I ask why you want to add a 2.4" tire to an XC bike?

    When I bought my Spark (used) from some silly person on eBay it came with 2 large Hans Dampfs on it....which is a pretty large tire...that rubbed on wheel flex.

    I ran Specialized 2.3's, great tires. I have recently put on Continental 2.4 up front and 2.2 on the rear. In reality Continental sizing makes it a 2.3 up front and a 2.0 in the rear.

    I don't necessarily need that wide of a tire, but I like the added traction. I think my Bronson is a 2.2 right now and I love it. I have a Captain up front, and it's never steered me wrong.

    Finally finished building this up to race next year. I've only ridden it once but so far seems like it'll a great race rig provided my legs and lungs can handle it. I'm still trying to get the suspension dialed. Pretty amazed it weighs just 22lb 4oz.
