What size SCOTT?

Postby jamesst » Mon Jan 19, 2009 15:43 pm

Hi guys, I normally ride a 18-19" frame, which size does this equate to for SCOTT MTB's please?

It doesn't really. There is no set sizes to MTBs.

Have a read of this:

Thanks, the small, med etc etc that scott quote isn't much help, just wondered if anyone whom has a scott knows which of these sizes actually equal 18 or 19inches?

I think the 18 is a medium. But that has little correlation with the rest of the bike, just that one tube! Some Scotts like the Scale are quite long and steep, some like the Reflexy shorter which makes them feel 'smaller'. Others have more standover.

This maybe should help you.

Or this maybe:
Example, E: 440 / 25.4 = 17.3"

What are you basing that recommendation on?

I am 6ft and having tried both medium and large Scale 20s I went for a large frame but fitted a shorter stem. I felt a little too compressed on the medium.


Irt Muddy B's post surely ones size and shape has as much to do m if not more with frame size as useage does? If you mean that you can go a size up for a hard tail or a size down for a full suss, that is a different matter.

I'm 6'1" and ride a large Spark. With the saddle set right back on the standard Scott post and with the standard stem, the riding position is pretty good. A slightly longer stem might be even better though.

Not really sure what Muddy.B is talking about. It is body dimensions that determines bike size, not usage.
