Scott Aspect Sport Review

The Good:

excellent overall value; hydraulic disc brakes stop like a brick wall. It is geared low so climbs great.

The Bad:

would like better (more adjustable) shocks but they are ok;

Overall Review:

I weigh about 210 and the bike handles me great. The 29's are awesome -- the only way to go in my mind. This bike is great. I am a new rider and can keep up with more experienced friends. Was comparing to Specialized Hardrock, Trek Marlin, a Focus Whistler, and a Gary Fisher which I can't remember much about. REALLY happy with my decision. It was $690 at Sun & Ski Sports and I feel great about it.
