Whoa! Cool!

Dang it. I had almost settled on the 821 and now I see this. Any idea how this would do setup as an xc 29er with say 120mm of travel front and 100mm travel in the rear?

Very impressive frame. The geometry is identical to Scott's 700 Plus, save for a slightly shorter head tube. Identical suspension geometry. Good cable routing. Properly thick chainstays and a solid rear triangle. If I were building a 650B+ trail bike, this would be my first choice. About the only negative I see is shared with the Spark: that kinked seat tube will limit dropper post travel.

Well said.  If I didn't already have a 27.5+ bike, this frame would be my first choice.

Will this frame be viable with 29inch wheels with 2.2 tyres?

Looks amazing!

Anyone think there will be a lot of pedal striking with the low bb? A 29" wheelset would help some maybe?

Any idea if a 29er fork would fit this, together with 27.5+ wheels?

Price..?

I asked Peter & he said yes.

I assume this is the same 120mm. frame used for the 29er Spark, with longer fork to correct geometry (pedal strikes) Did parking test ride on the 2017 Scott Spark 950 M (aluminum) & was impressed. Bike felt pretty snappy, it retained a cross-country feel with some "trail" playfulness. Super low stand-over height made it feel like a 27.5. Left suspension "open" the whole time (dislike the twinloc system) & could not feel excessive pedal bob. But this is NO racer.

Does anyone know exact rear shock that would go with this frame? My Scott dealer called to ask availability of the shock that comes stock with the 2017 Scott Spark Plus. You can order it but there is a 4 week wait time on it.

Just wondering if that is the rear shock to get here.

Sorry that we did wrong claim on the shock size, it should be 168*38mm, now it is correct on our website

Seems like this isn't available for ordering yet. I think I'll wait until one of you brave souls buys it, does a build and posts your experiences.  ;)

I'm ordering it now with a set of 29" wheels.

So the only size available right now is the 17.5". This is the size my wife rides and this would get her off her hardtail. I'm starting her off with a set of boost 29" carbon/dtswiss 350s and I'll get a 27+ set for her later.
There are parts I haven't picked yet, but here's my build list so far.
Already have...
Sram x1 gxp crank arms 28t
Sram x1 shifter
Sram x0 rear derailleur
Sram xg1175 cassette
Sram pc1110
Sram Guide Rs 180mm rotors
Reverb Stealth Dropper 125mm
Saint pedals

I figure out the cockpit after I start building but I will stay close to the Scott dimensions.

I'm kinda stuck on what fork and shock to get.
Leaning to this fork in 140mm    http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/us/en/manitou-magnum-pro-forks-15mm-2017/rp-prod157579
and this shock    http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/us/en/manitou-mcleod-rear-shock/rp-prod129744

I'll start a build thread when I get the frame in. If you guys have any opinions or ideas, let me know, I'm totally open.

Per Peter, this frame clears 29er x 2.2'' max wheel.

Will you be using SCOTT Twinlock Remote Lever to tighten fork & shock?


Regards.
