Let us first welcome you to Run & Ride, well our website anyway. We hope you notice that we’re not some big corporate giant but instead a very professional medium sized cycling and running company based in Staffordshire right on Cannock Chase. The business is run by cycling, running, walking; well outdoor sports enthusiasts. We all have a true passion for the outdoor and we feel that this always transfers into how we operate the business. We don’t just talk shop we get out there and enjoy it and it's this that's so important when dealing with you the customer. You see because we have a genuine passion for the sports. We are able to offer knowledgeable and honest advice, not just what we’ve read in a booklet. 

Our bike shops are located all around the Cannock Chase. With shops in Hednesford, Milford, Stafford, we are ideally located to serve the needs of the locals from the surrounding area. All stores offer bike repairs and opur run store in Stafford offers gait analysis as does our Milford store.  

The brands we stock such as Scott, Cannondale, Whyte, Frog, Merida, Garmin, OTE, Madison are in the store because we love their products. We've been out and tested them or we own products from them ourselves. Tried and tested and guess what if they fail we stop using them and we stop selling them!

Please have a look around the site. We hope you like it. You'll find products from a number of big brands but you'll also find products from a few smaller lesser known ones too such as Spokesman clothing, Accelerade nutrition and Ginger & French gifts and cards. You’ll also notice we've tried to make the experience as good and simple as possible therefore we've included "click and collect", online finance option so you can do all the paperwork from your own home. We also have a fantastic customer rewards program to support those who support us. 

Finally we'd like to touch on our pricing policy. We understand that we need to be competitive therefore we offer a price match policy on hundreds of items. It's really simple, just click on the option on the page and send us the details. Couldn't be easier.

Well we'll leave it there for now. Once again thank you for visiting our store and we hope you enjoy your experience. And please remember if you have any questions then feel free to ask.

    Description

    Season :

    Code : 269761

    Weight : 0KG

    The SCOTT Spark 970 has a super light Alloy frame, as well as a front and rear fork/shock lockout allowing for a more optimized ride. It's lightweight, durable, affordable and retains all the great geometry and ride of its Carbon cousins.

    KEY FEATURES

    • Spark Alloy SL Frame
    • Tapered steerer, 15x110mm QR axle, Lockout
    • reb. Adj., Lockout, 120mm travel
    • Syncros X-25 TR Rims
    • Syncros Parts

    Tech:

    Asymmetric Design - The Spark down tube shock and linkage are clearly asymmetric, when looking from the top of the bike. Off setting the shock slightly to the left hand side of the bike gives a clean and continuous structure from the down tube through the shock mount to the main pivot.

    Trunnion Construction - Scott have adopted the new Metric shock sizing standards with a Trunnion mount. Since the shock body now extends between the two lower mounting bolts, our suspension partners have more design space. This means the shock has more stroke for the same eye to eye length. Stroke on the 165mm eye to eye shock has increased from 38mm to 40/45mm.The Trunnion standard also offers structural gains. The shorter shock enables us to build a very compact frame and shock package, which integrates tightly to the seat tube. We managed to have a very tiny yet stiff linkage-lighter than ever. Thanks to the Trunnion mount construction, stand over height on the new Spark is very low. We are still able to realize a super compact full suspension frame and provide the ability to mount both a small and big water bottle.

      Buyers Guide

      Full Suspension bikes have changed so much over the last few years. Travel has got biger / longer. Lockouts are available on most bikes and even some bikes have on board computers controlling what the suspension does.

      So what do you go for? Well If you believe the press then you need at least 150mm travel if you do anymore than drop off a curb. In reality that's complete rubbish. So here's our attempt to help make things a little clearer for you

      XC Bike - Normaly 100 / 120mm travel bike will be sufficient for a XC bike. You will want to consider what lockout the front and rear shock has fitted so you can lock the suspension to improve climbing speed

      Trail Bike - 130mm to 150mm travel bike suitable for most trail centers around the UK including Cannock Chase. Consider that all trail centers contain a reasonable amount of climbing so again you may want to consider the lockout system so you can get up the climbs without bobing around too much whilst you get full use of the travel when you come down the other-side.

      Enduro Bike - 150mm to 170mm travel bike. If you like taking air where possible, hitting rock gardens flat out and take in the odd downhill track then these bike would be best for you. Make sure you consider that most of the bikes in this category are predominately design to go down so weight will increase as will the bikes ride quality on anything flat and up hill

      Delivery

      There is free postage available on all orders over the value of £25 excluding large items such as bikes. We send orders either via Royal Mail (small items) or via a recorded delivery courier, which will require a signature on receipt. If there is nobody available at the delivery address to accept the delivery a card will be left to inform the recipient and the courier will re attempt the delivery once more. After the 2nd attempt the courier will leave a card explaining how and where the customer can collect the parcel from. Unfortunately we are unable to request the courier to leave the goods without a signature. We are sorry but we are unable to leave a message "such as leave in the shed" for Royal Mail deliveries

      Please ensure you enter a valid email and mobile number for us to send you tracking details for the product you've ordered

      All bikes are fully checked and serviced before they leave the store. We do our best to make the bikes as ready to ride as possible. They will arrive in a large sized box and once unpacked the bike will require the user to turn the handlebars and tighten the stem bolts. Don’t worry if you're unsure abut how to do this as you find directions on how to do this within box along with a "new bike guide" detailing information on how to look after your new bike.

      PLEASE NOTE: A working day is Monday - Friday and doesn't include bank holidays.

      Pre-Order

      With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

      You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

      Pre-Launch

      With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

      So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

      Estimated Delivery Dates

      Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.
