Just so we're clear, I'm not bagging on the Scott or the FS-27. I'm probably going to buy one soon.

If anything, I'm defending the Scott from being compared to a SC. Had two SCs. Big, fat waste of money.

I'd love a 130/122mm FS to compliment my Yeti ASRc. I have two frames from Peter already, four Chinese carbon in total. Been very pleased.
I wasn't in any way speaking for or against SC or Scott. Nor was i speaking to your posts other than saying that if you want a really close comparison,  ride the spark.  This is my wife's ride.  My bikes come from the large volume brands or boutique'ish brands. That being said,  this build is fun.  That's all from me.

We've been talking past each other. And I've been unclear. Sorry.  :)

I've ridden the Spark. It's an awesome bike. That's why I'm considering the CS-FS27.

 I just bought this frame I will be running cane Creek dbinline.
Can someone please link me a source for all the mounting hardware bushings bolts etc that I will need?

 Or if someone knows a source for the fox shock that is stock on the spark that would be an option too.

I dont think a ccdb inline will work...the space between rocker link and seat tube is too close. The comp/ rebound adjustment assy will hit the frame I think.

The upper shock hardware is 8x22 , lower should be 8x50 but it supplied shims to use with 8x22 too. The 22mm hardware will bent the 50mm length 8mm inner shaft if you bottom out hard I think.

I just built mine yesterday....will post pics soon.

Looks nice!  Is there cable routing for a remote lockout for the rear shock?

There are 2 holes under the shock, which is the routing for dropper seatpost I suppose. So there is no cable routing for lock out of rear shock I think. (The BB shell has no holes going up.) The 2 holes for dropper under the shock are not facing each other so its quite difficult to install. Finally I drill 1 extra hole 1 inch closer to the shock.
Also I open some more ports for fully internal routing of the rear brake.

 Ok so if money isn't a consideration what is the best shock one could put on this bike? I value high small bump compliance and low breakaway force.
 This will also be a place keeper until the newer metric shocks are available to the public.
 I am hoping like hell that DVO makes something to fit this.

Sounds like you need anything with a big negative air chamber, like the rockshock debonair air the scott stock fox evoc shocks.....

I will ride this sunday to see how the smallest fox ctd shock performs....
