A Great Ride
The Scott Scale 50 has been praised for its value and for a price range in the USD$1200-1300, it is indeed.
A nice, light-framed bike, the Scale 50p takes the uphill climbs with speed and ease. The stopping power is really good and the brake levers are designed even for the smaller hands. Another critic was not as lavish in praise, claiming huge hands with the levers just not right for his needs.
The Scale 50 is a tough bike and takes hard hits with no problem. You have here, an attractive bike.
One rider in an assessment of the Scott Scale 50 described the bike as being ’not quite as well spec ‘d as a racing bike’.
For entry-level SC riders, the Scott Scale 50 is ideal and better suited for their needs.
On the down side, we mentioned the disparity of the brake levers – there need to be a happy medium to suit the varying sizes of hands.
Another problem seemed to be the fork and the stock spring (too hard). A last comment was that the frame was just begging to be upgraded. Yet, Scott Bikes would still be that rider’s choice.
All in all an awesome, brilliant bike.
