    Advice KTM Scarp 27.5

    Anyone have any experience with this bike.
    KTM Scarp 27 Master Bike 21" 2014 . Found it discounted for I think $2700. At a online shop . Looking for a trail bike would this be a good bike? Is that a good price?

    Well KTM has made some great off road motorcycles for decades. I'm sure they have given the same craftsmanship and attention to detail in crossing over to the MTB world. This review has rave reviews about the Scarp. I say go for it, a carbon full squish at that price from a quality manufacturer sounds like a no brainier to me.

    Are you really tall? 21" is no doubt their XL sized frame.

    Are you seeing the pricepoint bike for $2400? If 21" fits you, that looks like a good deal for an XT build with a Fox Float fork.

    However, note this is a 100mm travel bike. That's not a lot.

    Pop a 120mm fork on that puppy and you'd be ready to shred!!
