Scott Spark mountain bikes
There is a lot of specialization in mountain bikes these days. There are bikes for riding on snow. There are bikes that are meant to be ridden downhill (not up), super-light bikes meant to be raced and fairly heavy bikes meant to loaded up with gear and ridden across mountain ranges.
Don’t want a bike that’s too “special”? How about a mountain bike that works for nearly every trail, nearly every rider and every use. Check out one of the bikes from Scott’s Spark series.
These are trail bikes. Most of them have about 5 inches of suspension travel so they’re plenty capable when the trails get rough or when hills get extra steep. The Twin-Lock switch on the handlebar will simultaneously control the front and rear suspension, giving you suspension that’s totally active when you need it or shut down a bit (or locked out) when you don’t. The Spark series bikes are light and nimble enough to race while being stable (and strong enough) to handle bike-packing or downhill runs.
Available with quick-handling 27.5″ wheels or fast-rolling 29′ers. There’s even a couple of versions with 3″ wide “plus” tires for extra trail capabilities.
