Scott Spark Review

The Scott Spark makes use of a Spark 760 proprietary suspension system on the gorgeous frame. If nothing else, the bike looks good. We found that the almost sci-fi themed bike looked really great aesthetically, and we hoped that it would be just as good on the trails.

However, we didn’t really enjoy the ride nearly as much. The suspension was great – a dual lockout suspension system that was able to switch between different types of travel and damping with the flick of an easily accessible shifter.

The problem with this is that the cost of integrating this system resulted in the fork and other components suffering from cost cutting measures. The wheels, for example, were pretty old school. They had skewers and spokes like far older bikes.

Even worse, the shifters were 3×9 Alivio systems with an Octalink BB spindle, all of which are pretty much relics of the past. Overall, this bike felt a little on the heavy side, although it had been tuned quite well. It didn’t perform nearly as well as we expected it to.

The Verdict

The Scott Spark is a very nice bike for anyone just starting out in offroad cycling. Made for descents and climbs, it feels like it could have been a marvelous ride, a while ago.

We really had a lot to complain about with the Scott Spark, but it did have moments where it shone. That is the essence of this bike – one that shines bright when it can but is usually dull and better to look at than to ride.
