Scott Aspect 10 - New Project - Updated 28-2-12

Postby WindyG » Sat Feb 09, 2013 19:18 pm

Picked up this frame cheap off Ebay, BB already faced, just needed a good clean and new headset.
Image

So a little while later, new Ritchey headset, SLX crankset and BB, RS SID race forks, Scott bars, Easton Stem, SLX shifters and a front Elixir 3 brake all fitted.
Image

The complete build will be nearly all SLX groupset apart from XT rear mech, most parts are a mix of second hand or sourced cheaply no RRP at all :-) Found rear caliper is seized so just bought a new set instead.
Should have it all finished this week.

Cheers, the frame was better than I thought condition wise as it was a bit of a blind purchase, I've pretty much finished it now, just waiting on a new set of brakes, I had a quick ride around the garden, those forks do seem nice very pleased with them, had a head scratching moment working out the remote fitting, I'll hopefully let you know bars wise at the weekend if I get a proper ride on it. I'll add some more pics in the week.

Yeah not sure on that yet, will ride it for a bit and see, it looks longer in the pic I think.

Nearly all done, no brakes fitted yet, should be ready to ride at the weekend. Will be changing bars, saddle, seatpost and grips at some point.

Looks good
Pain hurts much less if its topped off with beating your mates to top of a climb.

Nice looking bike, you've built yourself there.
Are you sure that weight is correct? Hard tail, light fork and wheels...?

Cheers I'm happy with it, just about to take it out for a ride. The weight is correct a little heavier than I had hoped for, forks and wheels are light, 1650g for the wheels and 1470g for the forks, still some weight to be lost.

Must be a very heavy saddle and seat post because looking at the rest of the components there isn't anything that stands out as particularly heavy!

The saddle is actually quite heavy, and crap, Charge Spoon already on order :-)
Been for a 20 mile ride through nearly all mud and it was great, forks very nice, had to make a few adjustments after it started slipping gears but I think this was just cables bedding in and easily sorted, need longer bars as the standard Scott ones are too narrow and didn't give me the control wanted just a personal thing that though. I also did fall off twice once clipping a tree and second one a bit bigger when I hit a post and I ended up proper on my back, I put this down to the narrow bars. I'll most likely go for the same parts as my Anthem, Easton carbon bars and seatpost, lighter tubes, I could also lose another 200g with different tyres. I also have some foam grips on order.

A few updates to lower weight and improve the handling.
The Scott seatpost was heavy at 430g, replaced with Truvativ Team Carbon post - 260g
Scott seat was horrible, Charge spoon now fitted.
Scott bars were heavy and too short, so as per my Anthem X - Easton EC70 Carbon bars with Ritchey WCS foam grips and Lizard Skins end caps fitted.
To finish off I got some Schwalbe Rocket Ron's cheap, much lighter than the Maxxis Ignitors.

Weight is now down to 11.08kgs, pretty happy with it now, the saddle and bars making the biggest difference to the ride.

Nice ride, Scott make good frames IMO.

I used to have a Reflex, which IIRC was the predecessor to the aspect. Handling was pretty sharp and comfy for long rides.

Your right about the frame.
I already had a Aspect 50 and I had planned to built a better spec bike for low cost as general winter bike and save the wear on my Anthem, got a few parts second hand plus bits I had lying around but I picked up this frame for £46 and knew it was a perfect frame for me I then got impatient and as sales were on started to hunt various parts from all over the place, I have managed to build these for well under what I would have paid for a brand new bike from a store plus I have enjoyed building it myself. I have kept it generally SLX for now and as parts wear out I'll upgrade them to XT.

Just a couple of simple updates, gone tubeless, and replaced both skewers, and got rid of the QR seatpost clamp, weight now down to 10.8kgs.
