Scott Spark 900 MTB

I finally bought a MTB. Found a fantastic (in my opinion) eBay deal and had it shipped to my company's office in Golden, CO. There are are great trails right out that office's door and since I have 3 road bikes at my office in CA (where I live) it made sense to me to have the MTB there (I am at that office a few days every month).

1st ride was last night at Table Mountain - it was amazing. 1st time on a full suspension and 1st time with a dropper post. Total game changers for me. I had so much fun that I might need to get another MTB for at home.

Nice! The Spark came with a SRM!?!?! Awesome. I was looking at the Scott pretty seriously before I found my Trek.. Still not sure I made the right decision, but at least I have an excuse to get a big dual-squish now. That bike looks perfectly suited to the climbs and trails you have available there.

No - it came with regular cranks. Since I have a SRM addiction I had this one built up for me by SRM. I had an extra set of Origin arms sitting around so that put the cost of the SRM at the cost of a complete Quarq unit.

With the tri-lobe arms though, the pedal axle screws into the arm off-center, so the little plastic boot things that go over the ends of the arms won't go on - so I need to take an razor blade to them to get the arms protected - I smacked the arm on a rock and got a big chip in the clear coat already.

Awesome bike, and perfect for everything around you short of White Ranch.

I probably just missed you on NTM last night - guessing from the light in your photos you were an hour or so after me.

Modern mountain bikes are awesome! I gave one of these a very hard look before deciding on a bad habit. This one looks killer and a lot of fun!

Sweeet!!! Looks like the perfect balance of efficient but also enough travel to get rowdy. I guess that is what they are calling a “down country” bike these days. Love mountain biking - enjoy!
