After a small fall on the road(spokes didn't caught on to anything), one of the spoke broke after 2 weeks.
Then the front hub became wobbly.
The fork's preload cap are also unreliable, it became stucked then suddenly snapped off when i tried to turn it.

" Hmmm...I got the power! "
Duration of product used:
Less than 1 month
Bike Setup:
Scott Expert Racing plus Shimano Deore hydraulic brakes
Similar Products Tried:
Specialized, Bridgestone , Wheeler
Strengths:
Light and fast
Weaknesses:
None yet
The Crunch:
I m not too sure why did the earlier reviewers rate this bike as average,.... to me it is an unpolished gem.

Great body with not so good components, which could be upgraded if you would like to invest further.

Need to change to better suspension, preferably Duke or SID series, and upgrade to hydraulic brakes. Wheelsets need to be upgraded as well. Good for long distance cycling.

3 months

RS Pilot SL fork, Deore V-brakes, Deore FD, LX RD, Deore shifters, XT crankset/BB, FSA headset, Wellgo pedals, Alesa ZAC-19 rims, Formula front hub, Deore rear hub, DT Swiss spokes, Scott X-Rod flat bar, Scott Comp stem, Kalloy seatpost, Scott Racing saddle, Scott Manx 26x2.0" tires, Topeak Medium Wedge saddle bag, Cateye Cordless7 cyclometer, Sigma rear blinker, Minoura alu bottle cage ... i think thats about it.
Similar Products Tried:
Voltage, Yecora ... blah blah blah ....
Strengths:
- Light.
- Nice colour.
Weaknesses:
- Judy TT.
- Paper-thin frame.
- Cheap-looking headset.
The Crunch:
The frame is light. Its so thin it has to be light. Got to change the fork man. For this kind of price u would expect a better fork. Deore parts and drivetrain are reasonable enuff if u dont mind the extra grams. The Ritchey headset looks so cheap! Even my Yecora came with a sealed bearing one. 4 hours on the stock saddle and you will walk like a cowboy!!

Paid $880 for it and i guess i shouldn't complain too much. LOL.

You can hear your hubs vibrating when u going at speeds of 40km/h on flat ground , not forgetting downhill .
