|If so what is your thoughts on them? |
Are they well built? Any problems?

|Scotts are quite popular in Europe, but I literally haven't seen one for over 15 years in the US. They started out at mass-market sporting goods stores like Copelands, but then sort of petered out as a brand here.
The Scotts I saw on the MTB racing circuit in Germany were reasonably well built -- comparable say to Trek, Specialized or Wheeler (another popular Euro brand).
One of the French pro teams is racing a new Scott carbon road frame, but I wouldn't be surprised if it is sourced from a mfr. with more expertise.
If you can get a good deal with a good parts pick I'd say go for it.

|I have two mountain bikes, my friend has a road bike.
VERY VERY nice. They are pricey because of the salary of a great engineer named Peter Denke from Germany. Hes a genius. They frequently finish tests as not only the lightest frames but also the strongest. Very well engineered.

|Yeah they're quality. I used to own a Scott mountainbike and it was well made and durable. I'm sure their high end stuff is as good as anybody's. Can't find 'em here in the US tho.|
|you can buy them in the US...||ClydeTri|

|They have a distributor in Puerto Rico, which last time I checked was still a territory. I saw and advert for them in Velo News if memory serves...|
|But they say SCOTT-USA right on the frame||pitt83|
