Personal setups » stappy’s divide rig
I built this Scott scale in January as my every day race bike, with the Divide in mind. Racing it all spring with 2 inches of extra steerer tube, always answering the ” why don’t you cut that remarks”. First 29er, I’m embarrassed by how much I like it. Xtr triple, 11- 27 road cassette, enve wheels, ends up at 20 lb even for the bike as a starting point. I asked Scott the superstar at the Porcelain rocket to push his limits a bit weight wise. Handlebar wrap and seat bag are cuben fiber based. I’m a bottle guy, so that’s the basis of the frame bags. Areobars are mounted on a 4″ piece of aluminum tubing mounted to a 40 degree, 50mm stem. A machinist friend made me a recessed, centered gps mount. I fashioned articulating led flashlight mounts from generic tail light mounts. Lots of borrowing ideas, adding a few of my own. I think this would be the love child if Erik Lobeck’s bike and Matthew Lee’s bike hooked up. Built for comfortable speed.
