Just taken delivery of my new Scott Scale 35, after trying out several this felt just right for me, bit overpriced but just fell in love after trying it out,

Just been out for a quick trip round the block and love it. The SRAM x9s are astonishing, coming from decade old Shimanos :)

    Cheers Guys, shame I picked it up mid afternoon on Sunday, would have liked to go out for a proper ride.

    Will be out next weekend possibly to Gisburn to give it a ride out.

    Lovely bike! Just out of curiousity, did you have a test ride on a 'aspect' aswell? I've had a pedal about on my mates aspect 20 and its a lovely bike, but he was torn between that and the scale. I suggested the geo on the scale might be a bit to 'racey' for the very broad type of riding we do, and he felt the same. I was just wondering if, as a scale owner, you had any thought on the matter! :P

    Hi all thanks for the kind words :)

    Been out on it the last few weekends, just been a bit of road/forestry track + some longer rockier descents.

    Absolutely loving it at the moment. Brakes need a bit more bedding in but they're the first disc brakes I've used and they are light years ahead of V-brakes.

    To rubins4 I didn't sadly test ride the aspect so not sure how it compares. I have to agree with you the Scale geometry is race orientated, it but it just suits me perfectly. Not to say I do lots of racing, but the feel of the bike and the position feels perfect, just like my older steel GT. Much prefer the lower ride position of the Scale over the Rockhopper I tried.

    It was a weird purchase really, only test rode it because it looked nice and immediately knew it was the right one for me. That sounds really soppy :oops:

    Still looks clean, but been making sure I use muc-off to keep it in reasonable condition.

    I tend to ride a lot with my dad, he rides a Trek 8000.

    Planning on doing Gisburn forest, LLandegla, Coed-Y-Brenin, Edale and Hadrians wall cycle route (coast to coast) soon.

    Glad to hear your getting on with it! I'd love to have a go one one, looks like it will really spur you on to get some miles in. When you know somethings right, you just know. Good to hear thats what you got! :P
