Does anyone rate Scott bikes? Never been a fan of their MTBs, but


I think Superstrong (Geoffy B) rides a Scott on the road. Ask him.

As JV said you won't go far wrong with any of the big brands. I personally prefer Treks as I found they fit me. I recently scored a 2005 Trek 2300 with 9 speed Ultegra and Bontrager Race Lite X wheels on STW!

Ultegra is like XT. Dura-ace is equivalent of XTR.

You won't go far wrong with a Ribble. They make some nice steel frames and re-brand Tiawanese alloy frames too as their own brand training/race bikes.

I reckon a 58 should be good for you. I ride a 60 and I'm a bit taller :wink:

Yeah I recognise the name, they've been around for a while eh? I seem to recall them from the Madison Catalogue days?

Here it is, going for a look tomorrow lunchtime; he's just up the road in Chalk Farm..

Is it a good price?

Decent enough price- I'd try to get it for £300- let him have a sniff of the actual cash there and then :twisted:
