Scott Usa

Hi, I was out looking for a new bike again and today i seen a Scott team racing, It comes with xt, raceface cranks, xtr rear mech and rockshox.

Has anyone got the same bike or know if scott's are any good :confused: .

It seems like a really good bike, very light ect, so it's either this or a pine mountain, then there's the speciallized????

so many choices

Scott was a high quality company at one time. They got into financial trouble and, after being sold a couple times, ended up moving to Europe.

The company is based in Switzerland rather than the USA. They seem to get pretty good reviews generally, I think the Mountain Biking UK Team use them, so it might be worth picking up a copy.

The current What Mountain Bike has a fairly comprehensive set of reviews at different price points if you're looking for alternatives.
