I've been looking for months at different options. This one looks "attractive to me. Its a 2008 Scott Spark 20
It was raced for a year in ID. Sold to a racer in NV who used it 4-5 times and went back to his Trek Fuel. The starting price is $1,500. The only upgrade is the Krank Ti2 pedals.
The frames has smudges and what seems to be surface scratches. The components are crisp and immediate. WOW, never rode with disc brakes before, almost endo'd getting down the driveway.
I have the bike for a week to evaluate. What should I look for? And special suggestions?
I am 95% a recreational rider, like long cross country type rides, fairly good climber. Like to back pack for an overnight camp out. Drops, yeah, maybe three feet on a heroic day. But there are tons of rocks around here and i like to go fast when I can.Scott Spark 003..jpgScott Spark 002..jpgScott Spark 001..jpgScott Spark 004..jpg
