Hi,

I'm looking to get back into the mountain biking scene and therefore need a bike. If anyone has or knows of a used Scott Spark 940/950 that's for sale I'd greatly appreciate the help. I'd like one with the newer geometry (2017 and newer). There don't seem to be many available here on the classifieds. 

Thanks in advanced, my cell is 0833006789.

Put a wanted ad in the classifieds. Might just be someone that is on the fence about selling and then see your ad.

Prices have favored the second hand market.

 

u will get a good deal just wait it out, they do fly fast tho so u must be watching constantly and if u set up alerts, they only pop up instant notifications for bike plus members

Second hand bikes in EL are few and far between, also the people often want ridiculous amounts for them.

If you have friends in JHB or CT then its normally better to pick one up in those areas after someone looks at it and get it shipped.

Yip, if I find one I'd be more than happy to go to CT or JHB myself to look at it

940 2017 is a lot better than 950 2017.

How so? I know the suspension is somewhat upgraded but the drivetrain I'd convert to a 1x anyway.

Lots of Stuff.

Wheels and Hubs

Headset

Derailleur Front and Rear

Suspension is much better Front and Rear on the 940

Drive Train

Crank

Brakes

etc.

I found the 950 to be a Shitty to Average Bike and the 940 to be an Excellent Bike.

This applies only to 2017 model and not later or earlier models.

I'm Also Looking for a 940  (Medium)

Hmm, interesting. What's the most you'd be prepared to pay for a 940?
