Scott voltage yz 0.3???
I was looking at getting a trials sorta bike but something i can also ride around the street. Something like macaskills set up but no where near that price range. I was thinking second hand but have found a brand new scott voltage yz 0.3, does anyone know anything about them? I'm pretty sure the cranks and forks are cro-mo but the frame is alloy, I can pick up one of these brand new for 400 aud, i think they are normally about 8-900 aud? it's a one of trying to get rid of old stock, I think it is a good price. Any help would be appreciated.

I dunno much about the bike despite the fact that i have a Scott voltage YZ 15 cos im noob like that :P
BUT i do know that they go around for 700 AUD so to get one for 400 AUD would be great!
Also if you're worried about the frame, don't cos it's bombproof, you can pretty much throw it off your roof and it'll be fine.
I would say that the bike is a pretty good deal since you get the bike for 400AUD and you can always upgrade later since the frame is really nice.
Oh and the schwalbe tabletop tires that come with it are SWEET!

I've got a 2010 Scott YZ 0.2. It's a decent bike for the price. Be prepared to buy a new rear hub because the stock one is an unsealed POS and I broke mine in 2 months.
The only thing that bugs me about this bike is that the rear end is a little on the long side, and it can be difficult to set chain tension as the rear dropouts do not allow for many chain tensioner's/chain tensioner's aren't built in.
For $400, go for it.

i have a Scott voltage YZ 0.3 and yes it is possible to get one under 400 i got mine for 300 and never had a problem with it but i don't really know where to find another one for i got mine off gum tree so just search around there for your location and u may find one
p.s have you ever flown b4 because if not going over jumps on this bike will make you fly
