2017 Scott Scale 765 – RRP £849


XC race performance. The Scott Scale 765 is a hardtail mountain bike that features world class cross country angles for confident and efficient off-road riding.

The custom butted 6061 aluminium alloy frame offers lightweight XC race performance with nimble handling characteristics. The tapered headtube adds front end stiffness while the bridgeless seatstay design reduces weight and internal cable routing keeps the cables out of the way. 27.5” wheels offer the ideal balance between nimble handling and rapid rolling on technical terrain.

The SRAM NX 1×11 speed drivetrain offers a wide range of gears with the easy shifting, quiet running and excellent chain security that only a ‘one by’ system can offer. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes offer confident stopping power in all weather conditions. The RockShox 30 Silver TK fork offers 100mm of plush suspension travel and features the lightweight Solo Air spring alongside adjustable damping and a remote lockout.

Ride XC trails with confidence and efficiency on the Scott Scale 765.

Marc Gee – Thetford Race Report

Marc Gee – Thetford Winter Series – Sunday 12th February 2017

(words by Marc Gee)

After a cold and miserable start to the day we set off for the last round of the Thetford Winter Series.

We arrived at 8:30 as the sky cleared.

After a sighting lap of the fast and flowing single track lap I pumped my tyres up and got ready for the race.

It was a fast, straight 500 metre fire road start and straight into the single track.

I led the race for the first lap with second place directly on my back wheel. It was a fast first lap

I followed second place on the second lap before I led for the third lap.

On the last lap second place overtook and I could not respond fast enough to stay on his wheel.

I finished in second place and won the overall series.

A fantastic course, friendly event and I will be returning next year to defend my title.

Good rides all round from the Sherwood Pines Cycles riders, Graham Gee, Carl Kelleher and Gary Kondor.

Thanks for the continued support from Sherwood Pines Cycles and I can’t wait for the season ahead.
