Scott USA Expert Racing Frame


Scott Expert racing Frameset, now been replaced by the newer updated Scott USA Scale frames in both carbon and alloy.

I have been using this 2003/4 alloy Scott Expert Racing frame for
3 years. Its certainly a very good light weight frame, which is highly responsive, and matches the racing name tag.

The only downside to this responsive ride is that it produces a harsh ride on rides over 3 hours in duration. I have recently put my frame into retirement after cracking the top tube, despite this the frame has served me well taking in short blasts all the way through to XC and Enduro racing and covered thousands of miles on epic day rides. This frame has taken all the Chiltern hills have got to offer and even taken on the the welsh mountains and the rocky tracks of the Malvern's.  

The frame itself is lightweight Easton Alloy tubing, gusseted at the head tube for added strength. Neat CNC bridges, chain stays and cable routes are nice touches. V-brake bosses back in 2003/4 were standard and it did include international disc brake mounts.

A superb frame, light and tough, good all-rounder, just a shame its finally handed in the towel...

Super light XC race frame, that with a slightly different built to stock takes on XC racing through to all day epic rides. A firm favourite of ours. 4/5
