Only recently bought a cannondale flash carbon but was refunded after a month due to problems. So has been replaced with this Scott scale.

    Added a few of my parts today. Nukeproof bars , stem , grips and pedals. Waiting on the top cap to finish things off.

    Nice bike! Good to see someone is still getting a 26Er! I have those grips and would really recommend loosening the outside collar, giving it a twist and a pull to remove it, and then sawing off the plastic bits it clamps to, and then moving the grip so that the rubber goes to the end of the bar. It still locks-on fine, but is much more comfortable as it is all rubber.

    Will give that a go. Was always gonna be a 26er for me. Still not sold on the larger wheel thing.

    Added the nukeproof top cap and hope skewers today. Just waiting on nukeproof spacers and seat clamp to come.

    Why the Nuke proof obsession out of interest?

    I wouldn't say an obsession. But already had the bars grips and pedals from old bike. So when needed stem I thought may aswell get nukeprook so it matches. So made sense to get the top cap.

    Have to say the Nukeproof colours match well to the original Scott colours very nicely.

    Not a fan of big logos myself, but if you have them, they have to work, and yours do, looks nice.

    im looking at buying the scott scale 620 and was wondering how you are finding the bike so far?
    I also will be changing a few things on the bike if I decide to get one. My other bike was damaged during an attempted burglary on my shed so the insurance is paying out. My damaged bike is xtr set up but was a 9 speed model so upgrading the scale 620 might be a bit costly unless I sell old parts! Nice bike btw.
