Art’s Cyclery Employee: Scott Smith
About the Build: Since Scott is one of the proud owners of Art’s Cyclery, it only makes sense to show his bike first in order to kick off our new Bike Checks feature. At Art’s Cyclery, we love to ride our bikes and are eager to share them with you. We’ve got a bunch of riders who are proud to make this place their second home, so keep in touch; we’ll have another bike posted regularly.
When Scott’s not in his office or on a ride, he’s on the retail floor always ready to help get our customers dialed in with exactly what they need. Scott runs a tight ship but always keeps it fun for everybody.
In his own words, Scott wanted to build a “simple, lightweight workhorse” of a bike. He accomplished this by combining a lightweight hardtail frame with a no-frills drivetrain. A 1×10 setup matches Scott’s on-the-gas riding style perfectly, and since he does have a few years of experience, the lack of super-low gears isn’t a problem.
Usually you would find this build on the Stumpjumper Expert Carbon EVO R 29’er, but Scott went the extra mile (as always) and custom built an EVO out of an S-Works model. His goal was to build an awesome bike that was svelte, sexy, and to the point. Mission accomplished.
