Scott Spark 900 Series 2014

The Scott Spark 900 range of bikes has been designed for everyday riders as well as endurance racers. These bikes are available with either a lightweight Aluminium alloy frame or an even lighter Carbon frame and they all have large 29" wheels. This provides you with a more stable ride and you'll roll over trailside obstacles easier than 26" wheels. The wheels also hold momentum better for a faster ride all around. These bikes offer both front and rear suspension but they are still very weight conscious.

Nude Shock by Fox

Scott have teamed up with Fox for 2014 to provide you with Scott's unique patents and technology as well as Fox's excellent suspension performance. This creates a rear shock which delivers maximum performance in every riding situation while remaining lightweight. The Fox Nude Shock works exclusively with Scott's patented TwinLoc system so you can control it with ease.

Professional Review for Scott Spark 930 29er Full Suspension Mountain Bike 2014

"Great frame and decent kit, but remote control shock will decide whether it’s your ideal speed bike"

Scott introduced their Spark 29er last year, and the potentially ultra-light, remote lockout-equipped machine only continued Scott’s deserved popularity among racers. The tyres and shock don’t make the most of the bike’s surprisingly hardcore trail riding character. 

Ride & handling: Naturally fast and fun

With a reasonable all-up weight and immediate shock lockout, the Spark spins up fireroads and tarmac well and the ‘high’ chip position gives it a more perched cross-country feel. The middle setting is essential for stopping back-end bob and morale sapping suck-down in high torque/low rev situations on rougher climbs, however, and that in turn makes it more prone to spilling traction and momentum over the bigger lumps. 

It never felt as dynamic as the best marathon bikes under power; prodding at the shock remote more than the shifters can get really wearing when your head, legs and lungs are about to explode on a typically knobbly big country climb.

With the geometry chip in low and the shock fully open, the Spark feels like a proper badass. The rollover effect of the big volume tyres offsets the twin chamber-compromised feel of the rear shock, so while it doesn’t enhance the ride it doesn’t undermine it too badly either. 

Add impressive mainframe stiffness and that smooth-riding Fox fork and the Spark’s downhill and tech trail attitude is all about minimum braking and maximum speed. The downhill trails were definitely the Scott’s time to shine. 

The low centre of gravity and relaxed head encourages you to properly throw it through corners too, but the budget Schwalbe rubber means you won’t always end up where you expected (or still on the bike) in wet and slippery conditions. New rubber is an essential upgrade.

Frame & equipment: Decent kit on an excellent frame, shock aside

The seriously light 930 is the cheapest carbon front/alloy rear Spark frame. The skinny quick-release rear axle means some tracking flex, but shifter and shock cables are internal and the bottom bracket is a very stiff, light press-fit design. The neat bar lever toggles the twin chamber shock from open to reduced volume to lockout, and tallies with similar settings on the synced Fox fork. 

The SRAM transmission is light, the Shimano Deore brakes are excellent and the Syncros finishing kit includes decent wheels and saddle, plus a well-shaped short-stem, mid-width flat bar cockpit. The Schwalbe tyres are cheap plastic versions, though. 

We love the Scott’s mix of low weight and high stiffness, as it helps create surprisingly playful and descent-dialled handling. The Spark’s kit levels are good for the price too. But it’s the usual Scott story of whether you like the idea of the remote shock switching – or not – that will ultimately decide if the Spark ignites your riding enthusiasm. 

Verdict: 3.5/5

Scott Bike Sizing Guide

Below is a sizing guide for Scott bikes. To get the perfect fit please come in to any of our eight bike stores to test out the right size today!

Scott-Bike-Sizing-Guide

The right size bike for your body size is essential to ensure the optimum experience, comfort and enjoyment as you ride. With sizing varying between the type of bike, the brand and even the model, getting the perfect fit can seem daunting. That’s why we’ve compiled a handy guide to help you get the correct size. 

Measure Your Height

Our handy size charts match your height to the appropriate frame size so you need to be sure you’ve measured your height accurately.

  1. Take off your shoes and stand with your back against a wall.
  2. Make sure legs are together and your shoulders are back.
  3. Place a pencil on top of your head and mark the wall (the best and easiest way to do this properly is with a friend to help you).
  4. Measure from the floor to the pencil mark you have just made with a tape measure. 

Range of Reach

For most people to get the right frame size, measuring your height will suffice. However, you may find that your height is on the borderline of the range we suggest for a particular frame. If this occurs you need to measure the range of your reach or “Ape Index”. This will ensure you get a comfortable distance between the handlebars and your saddle.

  1. Stand up straight with your back against a wall.
  2. Life your arms out horizontally either side of you.
  3. Measure the distance from fingertip of one hand to fingertip of the other. This will give you your arm span.
  4. Subtract your height from this figure to get your Ape Index.
  5. If the result is positive (your arm span is greater than your height) you should go for the larger size of bike.
  6. If the result is negative (your arm span is less than your height you need the smaller size. 

Stand Over Height

You should also consider your inside leg measurement when choosing your bike to ensure adequate stand over height. Stand over height is the clearance between the top tube and the bottom of your crotch. For mountain bikes we recommend a distance of 2-4 inches and for road or hybrid bikes 1-2 inches of clearance is required. This will ensure comfort when you’re stopped and standing astride the bike.

Our bike sizing charts take stand over height into consideration but if you have a particularly long or short inside leg measurement in relation to your height you will need to bear this in mind when selecting your frame size.

Riding Style

The way you ride and the type of bike you are into will also impact the frame size you should choose. For example, a trail devotee looking for an aggressive ride may prefer a smaller, more manoeuvrable bike size. It all comes down to personal preference and how the bike feels to you.

Our sizing charts aim to be as specific as possible so you can look up the particular type, make and model of bike you’re looking for. Remember, the sizes given in our guides are suggestions and should be used for general advice only. For the best possible fit  we recommend popping in to your local Leisure Lakes Bikes store, or call 0800 083 0888 for expert advice tailored to you.
