    Weight of '15 Spark 710

    Just got my new Spark 710 and a bit disappointed with the weight. Might as well have got the Genius and use the lockout more. Anyone else have one and weigh it?

    My size large is showing 26.6 lbs. Not the best scale but I have verified it's accuracy with known weight. I will update when I get it on a scale that is capable of reading in grams to verify. A lot more than the just under 25 lbs Scott claims.

    My 910 medium is a shade over 26lbs with a heavier WTB saddle, Ergon grips, Shimano 540 SPD pedals. Still running the front dérailleur and 2x10 drivetrain. I think the larger frame makes some difference. The seat tube is ridiculously long in my opinion, if you don't need all that seat post length that would save some weight. I'm also running tubeless with Specialized 2.3 width tires (heavy)

    I'm a bit disappointed as well. My '14 Spark 930, large, weighs 27 lbs, and it's 1x10, tubeless, carbon bits, etc. Fortunately, I really don't feel it when I ride.

    Agreed, they climb like no other bike I've ridden before
