The Scott Scale Comp 29er Made BIKEmagic's Top Six 29er HT Mountain Bikes

  Looking For Your First 29er? Look No Further Than The Scott Scale Comp 29er

 "Scott has a range of five Scale 29 hardtails to choose from, proving (as if proof were needed) that 29ers are here to stay. We’ve picked the cheapest of the bunch, the decent looking Scale 29 Comp.
For someone looking to make a tentative first step into 29ers or for the racer on a budget, this has to be a good choice. A lightweight package with a hydroformed 6061 aluminum frame and the same geometry as the expensive carbon fibre offerings means the ride will impress, and is a good platform to start upgrading." - David Arthur

Besides the hydroformed 6061 aluminum frame, the Scott Scale Comp 29er features a Suntour XCR 29 LO coil spring front fork - including lockout and 100mm of travel. The drivetrain is composed of all Shimano Parts with Alivio Rapidfire plus shifters, an Alivio front derailleur, and SLX 27-speed rear derailleur. Brakes are handled by Tektro: their Draco disc model.
