Questions about purchasing bicycles and parts

Possible new bike

Postby cricetidae » Fri May 16, 2008 1:06 am

I am probably asking a question that has been asked before but I have the opportunity to buy a new bike at a great price and was wondering if anyone had an opinion or cautionary tales on the model concerned.

The bike concerned is a Scott Scale 50 and after several rides around the car park of my favourite LBS I am almost sold on the purchase.

Being the cautious one that I am just looking for some sage advise either way.

If it has the same specs as the US version, go for it. Nothin' wrong with that bike!

Cheers,

Looks good. Frame is made by Giant anyway. ;)

Can you get the Scale 40 instead? It's more than a kilo lighter!

It is mine and all I have to do is finish paying it off and then look out gravel tracks.

:twisted:
