Expirience with the Scott SPARK 960

Scott SPARK 960 Review With the SPARK 960 , Scott has gone into full innovation mode. The damper integrated into the frame and the sleek cable routing on the handlebars not only make the bike an aesthetic eye-catcher, but also bring real advantages when riding. The unique design combines a low frame weight, best stiffness values and also offers space for two bottle cages in the frame. Of course, the Twin-Loc lever for locking the undercarriage is also standard on the new Spark. Anyone who has no concrete preferences when it comes to handling, can´t go wrong with the Scott. Because his handling is pleasantly balanced. If you want to get ahead efficiently and quickly, you will welcome the sporty riding position. Considering that in the range under 3000 Euro, hardly any other manufacturer makes a better bike for the same specs of wheels. Nice! Scott gives 5 years warranty on the bike.
