Scott Voltage YZ 0.1

I bought this in april, 2018. It was a used bike that i bought from a neighbor for a pretty good price. I wanted a bike like this and buying this one gave me the opportunity to have one. It was in a pretty good shape. I had to fix the cranks during the summer because of some issues, and i had to buy a front brake. Other than that it was rideable from day one.

Its a 2013 model with 26 inch wheels and a fork with 100 mm travel. The plan is to use this bike for things like dirt jumping, street riding, trials and other technical riding. And to have a different bike to use when practicing stuff. Its nice to have a smaller bike when practicing stuff like jumping, doing manuals, bunny hops and other things. Those are skills i want to be able to do on my 29 inch hardtail as well. The other part i want to focus a lot on is trials and to see how far i can take it.

I bought this bike in may, 2018. Needed a new bike and this what i bought. Its a cheaper bike but i really enjoy it. Its the first regular MTB that i have, that has disk brakes. Also the first bike i have with 29 inch wheels. It has a fork with 100 mm travel which is 30 mm more than my previous bike, and a small but nice step forward.

Those things i changed on it after buying was to mount a wider handlebar (800 mm) and a shorter stem to make things more comfortable and give better performance. I put a dropper post on it and thats one of the best things that ever happened to Mountain Biking. I use it a lot during my rides and makes things much easier, and more fun. I put better pedals on it to have some good grip while riding. I bought the NC-17 Sudpin I Pro pedals and i really like them.

This is my main bike, which i do most of my riding. I really enjoy riding it and having 29 inch wheels feels pretty ok. At least during less technical rides.
