2.5.1 I want to fit a larger tire on my bike. What is the largest tire that will fit?
3 to 4mm distance on each side is really the limit, especially on mountain bikes so that you have enough mud clearance. Please kindly check the real width. Measures and indication of the tire may not be the same within all brands.
2.5.2 Is it safe to ride my carbon-bike on an indoor trainer?
Please make sure to use the original clamping and mounting devices delivered with the trainer. In case of doubt please contact your authorized Scott Dealer and take his advices seriously.
2.5.3 Can I transport my carbon-bike with a car rack?
Yes you can, but only if you make sure not to clamp or squeeze the frame tubing.
2.5.4 What is the difference between the CR1 and the Addict?
The CR1 offers a smooth ride and geometry suited for any enthusiast. The stays and fork feature our Shock Damping System (SDS) for comfort and vertical compliance while the rest of the frame remains laterally stiff for unparalleled power transfer and handling. The Addict is the envy of the pro peloton and HTC-Columbia’s team bike. The IMP construction paired with race inspired geometry results in an amazingly light (790g) frame that is laterally stiff and comfortable for long races.
2.5.5 How can I fly with my bike that has an integrated seat tube?
We sell a case that is designed for bikes with an integrated seatmast. If you already have a case or if our case is not appropriate for your travels many people have had luck getting their bike into a standard case by removing the cranks and or fork.Bike Transport Bag
2.5.6 What are all the new bottom bracket standards and what are they compatible with?
BB86 is the standard for road bikes with press-fit bottom brackets. We utilize this standard on many of our Addicts and CR1s. Shimano, SRAM/Truvativ, Campagnolo and FSA all produce a BB86.
BB92 is the standard for mountain bikes with press-fit bottom brackets again, Shimano, Sram and FSA all produce a BB for these frames.
BB30 is a press in bottom bracket designed for oversized 30mm spindles BB30s can be found on our Scale and Spark RC bikes.
2.5.7 What headset do I need?
We use semi-integrated or Zero Stack headsets, any manufacture will work as long as the cup is designed for a 44mm internal diameter headtube. If you just need know bearings the appropriate dimension will be printed on the outside of the cartage bearing and should read either 45x45 or 45x36. New headsets or bearings can be obtained from your local bike shop.
2.5.8 How do I adjust the fore/aft position of my rear wheel on a Plasma 2?
There are small allen screws at the front of each dropout you can space your wheel by adjusting them in or out.
2.5.9 Can I get spare parts from SCOTT?
Yes! We do have many spare parts. Please contact your local SCOTT dealer or the national distributor in case your dealer cannot help.
