2018 Scott Spark 930 Full Suspension Mountain Bike SmallRETAIL $3800 For just about anyone looking to get into mountain biking, the amount of variation, choice, and price ranges can scare just about anyone. With a myriad of wheel sizes, frame geometries, and features, never have the options been more comprehensive to tailor a bike to a specific riding style. Even between cross country and trail mountain bikes, variation is everywhere. For those looking for simplicity, and a bike that descends as well as it climbs, the 2018 Scott Spark 930 is supremely capable in everything from serious cross country races to more technical singletrack.Someone responsible with the development of this generation’s Scott Spark said that it was developed with cross country DNA, but bred amongst trail bikes. This shows immediately in the bike’s new rocker design. Instead of being mounted along the top tube, the new shock mounts along the seat tube to a beefed up bottom bracket. This trunnion-mount style not only promises greater small-bump sensitivity, it also ramps up as more travel is used to prevent the 120mm shock from bottoming out. A pivotless alloy swingarm cuts weight, and improves reliability and further stiffness out of the saddle. Scott also adds their TwinLoc suspension remote lever, the ideal companion for ever-changing terrain. Co-developed with Fox, this lever toggles between three distinct suspension settings (open, traction, lockout), each with its own spring compression and damping settings to adapt the bike to any type of situation it might have in front of it.The ability to adapt might just be the calling card of the Scott Spark 930. While it has an alloy frame and swingarm, it benefits from the same geometry as its carbon frame siblings. This means it features a slacker head tube angle, a steeper seat tube angle, shorter chainstays and a longer top tube. This puts the bike more in line with trail bike geometry, but thanks to clever design and the TwinLoc remote, it climbs with the efficiency of a traditional cross country bike. Point it down a mountain, however, and the Spark 930 rewards the rider with predictable steering that isn’t nearly as twitchy as a purebred cross country bike. Out on the trail, it really does prove that the Spark blurs the line between cross country efficiency and trail rowdiness.Make no mistake, if both climbing and descending are a priority, and only one bike can do it, the 2018 Scott Spark 930 is the correct choice. It features a Shimano Deore XT 2×11 drivetrain, a Fox 34 Float Performance fork, a Fox NUDE EVOL rear shock, and a Fox Transfer dropper seatpost. A Syncros XR 2.5 TR Boost wheelset is employed to keep the bike rolling ahead, and Syncros parts complete the bike. This iteration of the Spark 930 is available in four sizes (S-XL), in a gloss black with white and red accents.SPECIFICATIONSFRAMESpark 3 Alloy SL 6011 custom butted Hydroformed tubes tapered Headtube / BB92 / Boost 12x148mmFORKFOX 34 Float Performance Air Grip 3 / 3-Modes / 15x110mm QR axle / tapered steerer Reb.
