About Scott Aspect bikes

Aspect is Scott's entry level, aluminium framed, hardtail Mountain Bike range with a comfortable geometry that's ideal for anyone new to the sport or on a tight budget. Cheaper Aspect models use v-brakes but going up the range models are equipped with either mechanical or hydraulic disc brakes. The frame which remains the same throughout the range includes eyelets for mounting a rear rack with more expensive models being equipped with higher specification components and therefore having more gears. With 100mm of front suspension travel Aspect bikes are ideal for discovering local trails and tracks but more serious Mountain Bikers looking for a range of performance hardtail Mountain Bikes should consider Scott's Scale range. A range of Aspect 29 models (29" wheels) with 100mm of front suspension travel is also available.

I bought this bike second hand. After 3 years of intensive using (~3000km in city) I had to change the gear wheels (both front and rear) and the chain. That's it. Still love this bike. Its robust!

I've had this bike for 6-7 years now, and it's still going strong. Minimum changes made to it, my maintaining have been poor (sorry buddy), the only parts changed being the brake pads and tires.

The rear cog is missing a gear, and it's generally really worn. But I'm not planning on getting rid of it any time soon, and I'll keep repairing things when they break fully instead of getting a new bike. Extremely happy with it.
