  1. hi there, i broke the clamp on my twinloc. any ideas where i can get parts? Scott spark 970. Thanks, Riaan.
  2. Hi Guys, Need some assistance please, I have a 2020 Scott Spark 950. I was doing a once over when washing my bike and noticed what seemed to be a loose pivot screw, I grabbed the torque wrench and tried to tighten it, without even reaching 10nm the screw starting spinning around. So not sure if I broke it or if it was over tightened from the start but need a new one. Where will I be able to source?

  4. Hi Gents, I am about to take the plunge into a new MTB to replace my aging Silverback Saturn . I have narrowed my options to 2 bikes, both offered by my LBS. Scott Spark RC 900 Team (2018): https://www.scott-sports.com/za/en/product/scott-spark-rc-900-team-bike VS. Giant Anthem Adv Pro 1 (2018): https://www.giant-bicycles.com/za/anthem-advanced-pro--29er--1-2018 Which is the better bike? does anyone have any experience on these? Thanks in advance
  5. Hi Guys, i am new to mountain biking. Started this year on a hardtail and have been really loving the sport. Sold my hardtail as i want to get a dual suspension. My budget is not great, i would like to spend less than 25k. In that price bracket there are not many nice new dual suspensions so i have decided to go 2nd hand. I found a 2013 Scott Spark at a bike shop, the bike has a lot of scratches but rides really well and has great components, SRAM brakes and groupset 1 x 12, and its full carbon. They want 20k for it. I am looking to keep it for about a year, i dont think it will depreciate so much. Is this a good deal, they have newer Scott Sparks, 2016 and 2017 for around the same price but they are aluminuim. The bikes frame is very scratched, was thinking to respray it but the guys at the shop say its no point. I want to do XC and some trails, Thanks for the help, appreciate it. Shaun
  6. Hi All, I'm new to Bike Hub but I took my 2017 Scott Spark in for a service almost 4 weeks and the mechanics noticed that both the swingarm and the frame (at the seat tube) were cracked. It took over 2 1/2 weeks to get a response - the swingarm was warrantied but not the frame as they claim the seat post clamp was installed incorrectly. I have taken this up with Scott as nowhere in the users' manual is this stated that it needs to be a certain way and I received my bike from the bike shop that assembled it with the seat clamp installed as is. The 2017 and 2018 users manuals do not stipulate the seat clamp orientation but the 2019 one does, although it just mentions that it must be installed correctly and does not sat what is correct. Has anyone else had this problem? It's now almost 4 weeks later and I still have no bike to ride! I'm training for the Epic and need to ride but this is so unfortunate. There has been nothing from Scott International to date and Scott local sent an email to me this week for a loan frame but nothing has come of it. Such bad service.
  7. I had my MTB serviced after Sani - I asked for a major service. Turned out to cost me R3200.00. Parts from Scott dealers alone were R1300.00 (seals & bearings). So, what did your service cost you?

  9. Hello hubbers, My bike, Scott Genius 750 (2018), has the ability to switch between 27"+ and 29", and now I'm interested to do exactly that. The reason is mainly because my bike has quite a low BB, and I believe 29er will be able to just add a few needed centimeters. I just want to know if it's possible to trade my current 27"+ wheelsets for 29ers? I have the following: Rims: Syncros X-30s, 32 hole, 30mm Hubs: Front - Shimano HB-M6010-B CL, 15x110mm Rear - Shimano FH-M6010 CL, 12x148mm Tires: Maxxis Recon 2.8" I also have a Shimano CS-HG50-10 speed cassette, which I believe is not compatible with Sram XD hubs, but in the future I'd probably want to upgrade to Sram SX/NX and I don't know if XD hubs and Shimano cassetes are compatible for the time being? What can I expect to get for my wheelset aswell? Thanks in advance!
  10. The Scott Spark is an iconic cross-country and marathon race bike. While it may have been tempting to stick to a successful formula, Scott took the bold move to completely redesign the Spark range. For 2017, forget what you knew about the Scott Spark as everything from suspension design, geometry, and even the intended riding style has seen a complete overhaul. Click here to view the article
  11. Hi there, First time here. I would really appreciate some help. My husband enjoys Mountain biking as a recreational hobby. He does some trails like the Berg and Bush and other MTB races. He currently has a Scott Aspect 740. I want to surprise him with a new bike. I have looked at the Silverback Sprint Plus or Scott Scale 960. He is a big dude. Weighs 118 kg and is about 1.86 tall. Could you please point me in the right direction? My budget allows for a nice bike up until R22 000.00. Any feedback will be highly appreciated as I am totally lost and it has to be a surprise, so asking him is out of the question...
  12. I think this could be interesting, seeing as the current iteration of the Scott Spark has been around for a while and something new should be coming out sooner than later, but how do you change something that just wins everything? I think the hidden shock from Bold will be just that! link to article
  13. I was wondering why you would choose Scott's HMX SL carbon frame over the HMF carbon frame? Just for reference, here are 2 mountain bikes that make use of these 2 frames: SCOTT SCALE RC 900 SL BIKE https://www.scott-sports.com/za/en/product/scott-scale-rc-900-sl-bike?article=269720008 SCOTT SCALE RC 900 PRO BIKE https://www.scott-sports.com/za/en/product/scott-scale-rc-900-pro-bike?article=269722007 If both frames had the exact wheelset and groupset on, what benefit would the HMX SL frame give over the HMF frame? If you were blind folded would you be able to notice the difference? I'm not a pro, but i do long distance riding and trail riding, that's about it. I'm competitive n my group, but not a pro. The pro bicycle has a horrible brown and red colour to it! I would love to hear your opinions.
  14. I bought my wife a new scott spart and she was complaining that while she was going around corners it seemed like the tyres were moving on the rims (Alex xc-44). I thought it may be the rocket rons that were fitted, so tried some kenda nevegals that were lying around and has the same response. Not sure if this is due to the narrow internal width of the rim (I think it is 17mm (ETRTO 559x17mm) or the rims weren't stiff enough. We looking at converting her bike to tubeless for Sani, is it worth converting these rims, or should we replace them for something with a wider internal width. She has had quite a few crashes, so wouldn't mind sacrificing a bit of weight for more stability
  15. Hi All, This is my first post on BikeHub I've recently started doing stage races and rode the Sani2c, Berg & Bush 3 Day and just did a 4 day trip through Lesotho on some rough terrain. The time has come to upgrade my bike. I've been super happy with my Scott XL frame (Scott Scale 960 - 2014 - 120mm Default Stem) (height: 186cm, weight: 86 - 90 kg). I am in the range overlap between L & XL on the size charts of most manufacturers. I'm really happy with the Scott geometry but also open to some other options (only brands where spares and service are easily available in SA) I've been eyeing out the Scott Spark 940 2018 (XL) for a while now. I was hoping to get a deal on one at the changeover to 2019 models, but there were only really a lot of offers on mediums/smalls. I've also been looking at the Scott Spark 930 2018 (XL) https://bike-addict.co.za/products/scott-spark-930-2018https://bike-addict.co.za/products/scott-spark-940-2018https://bike-addict.co.za/products/scott-spark-930-2018 (with GX 1x12 / NX 1 x 12)https://bike-addict.co.za/products/scott-spark-940-2019 I've also had a look at the 2019 models, but R50k+ is quite steep Alternatively, I'm looking for the following: - Similar geometry to Scott Spark- At least 120mm Fork Travel- Good Rear Suspension (I like the Scott 3 way control as a bonus)- GX 1x12- Dropper Post- Decent wheels- New or Second Hand (2nd hand must be newer than 2 years old)- Great handling on trail, but also capable of long days out on the bike. What do you think of these bike options? Are their any others you'd recommend? If you own a Scott Spark and you are fairly tall, 185+ are you happy on a Large frame? My problem is that if I go XL I will likely not be able to take advantage of any price deals I am based in Cape Town (city bowl), are there any shops you'd recommend? (I service at Freewheel Cycology and I love them for that, bike is never been smoother, but a Spez is like 60k+ for same/similar componentry)
  16. Hi Guys, I would like some Expert / Experienced Feedback and guidance on this please I am looking to buy a Second hand Scott Aspect 10 It got Hydraulic Brakes, 30 speed, remote lockout air fork. I took a quick ride on it and it feels really nice (Upgrade from my current Silverback Stride 20) Is it a good upgrade? Also dont want to be paying more than they are worth. I am new to this and only ride locally but entered into events coming up so want to be as ready with my gear as can be ANY feedback will be appreciated. Steno
  17. Hello everyone, I want to start riding dirt jumps, but I can't seem to find any stockists. Does anybody know of a stockist in South Africa? Few options I've looked at: Scott Voltage YZ 0.1 Specialized P.3 Canyon Stitched 360° (*) *Only available through shipping, but if someone has it for sale,I'd really like to buy it! Thanks a lot, Oscar
  18. I recently brought the Scott Genius 750 2018 with 27.5 plus tyres. I've been thinking of getting a 29er wheel-set for the bike( even though it fly down the trails with the plus tyres) I was just wondering if someone has tested both wheel-sets on the bike and what the difference feels like. Also if its worth buying a new complete wheelset for the bike? Thanks
  19. Time for something different! this thread is for those who appreciate the welded beauty of aluminium... cause who needs carbon. Thats right. F*** Carbon!!! I'll start us off with my Alu Scott AFD Elite road bike... pic taken this morning on my ride at the cradle.. this is right by the sterkfontein turn...
  20. I am looking at getting a little more serious in my riding and have decided to retire my oooold Gary Fisher. Problem is with so many bikes and salesmen it's really hard for a novice to decide what to get. My ultimate goal would be to ride the Sani2C. I've looked at a R30000 budget. A 2018 SB Sido 1 looks good value but some are telling me to rather go for a second hand Scott (something I am always weary of). I am also a bit weary of big companies (the giant anthem 3 looks good value). Is there any reason that I should not buy a sido 1? Will it be durable?
  21. Hi All, After a lot of research I've decided that this is my final 2 options. This will be my bike for a very long time (5+ years, at least) So I want to make the right choice. Will do the 2013 Epic on this bike as well. I'am 1.76 and weigh 72 kg and are an aggressive rider, so I do like a bike with a racing Geonometry. I have seen guys winning XC races on SC's before, which says that SC can also be raced, even though it does not have an aggressive Geo. Now I know R50k is a lot of money, but I will not buy another bike for a long time. Scalpel 2 29er (All is awesome, but I will change the AVID brakes to XTR trail) and also not very keen on the Rockshock Monach at the back. Will maybe change that to Fox RP23. Life time warranty on Cannondale Frame. R46500. 11kg. Scalpel has a mix of AVID / XT / XTR on. Santa cruz: Can custom build the bike the way you like, but will be more in the region of 60k+. 2 year warranty on frame. I will build it up with FOX kashima coated front and rear, XTR, with ZTR ARCH wheelset with chrisking Hubs. This is what I would love to have, but that will work out close to R73500k way to much... around 10.8kg SC with a XT build up, with cheaper wheelset, will still be R55600 around 11.7kg Is Santa Cruz really that awesome, even though it only has a 2 year warranty? Had a test drive with Scott spark 29'er and didn't like it. also had a test drive with trek superfly 100, awesome ride, but it is overrated in my opinion. Any opinions from people who have / had any experiences with these bikes, and any pointers that will make my decision a little easier?
  22. Scot foil 14 Carbon full on Shimano 105 want to know how much it is worth 2014 model
  23. so i decided to spoil myself in the next few months with a new mtb bike. my first new bike ever after riding for more than 12 years... so with all the specials going on at the moment, and after eliminating a lot of potential bikes, i think i narrowed it down to two bikes: cannondale scalpel si 5 2017 model http://cyclelab.com/cannondale-scalpel-si-5-29-mountain-bike-2017/ OR scott spark 950 2018 model. http://cyclelab.com/scott-spark-950-29-mountain-bike-2018/ both go for R39 999 at cyclelab. I can;t decide though. the type of riding i wanna do: trans baviaans meets berg n bush meets wolwespruit meets spruit. which one would you guys pick and why? Bikes i've cancelled out due to price, reviews etc: Momsen vipa trail 1 spesialised camber comp trek fuel ex5 pyga oneten29 pyga stage yt jeffsey can't decide. help
