Scott Mountain Bikes
Starting life in 1958 as a ski company, Scott has diversified on numerous occasions to cater for Motocross in 1970 and cycling disciplines. Their first mountain bike was launched in 1986, and shortly afterwards the innovative aero handlebar was created, helping Greg Lemond to win his 1989 Tour de France. By 1991 Scott produced a range of Suspension Mountain Bikes using UniShock, and the following year it's first full suspension MTBs, Cycling shoes and helmets were all released. The next milestone year was 1998, when the G-Zero full suspension MTB was launched, with it's incredibly low weight a major selling point. Their focus was not just off road, and in 2001 the Team Issue road frame was announced, weighing less than 1 kg - making it the world's lightest. Two years later this was replaced by the carbon CR1 frame, weighing a paltry 895g! That same year, their MTB range was supplemented by the Genius, which enabled the rider to adjust travel from one of three settings; lock-out, full travel and just traction. Long time Scott sponsored rider Thomas Frischknecht won the marathon World Championships on this bike. In 2005, Scott moved into the Triathlon genre by releasing the Plasma, a 980g aerodynamic carbon frame, with a 300g seatpost complementing the ride. never to remain complacent, the Addict Road frame was born in 2007, weighing 790g and featuring a feathery 165g seatpost, 330g fork, resulting in an overall build of just 5.9kg (yep, that's 13lbs!) Over the next decade Scott continued to produce lightweight performance innovations, such as the second Genius range, Twin Loc suspension controls and the 899g Scale hardtail range, which Nino Schurter won the MTB World Cup on.

This deal was originally found at Evans Cycles website, a bike shop which can trace it's roots back nearly 100 years! Evans Cycles is a London based chain of cycle shops, complete with an extensive online shop. Founded in 1921 by Frederick Evans in Kennington Road, SE London, the business traded for 30 years before being acquired by Joseph Smith in the 1950s, selling a range of cycles and toys. By the 1970s, focus was diverted solely to bicycles and cycling related equipment, and in the following years several franchised shops were opened. These were later brought back under the control of the main Evans company in the 1990s, at which point the famous Evans mail order catalogue was launched, complete with the traditional green and yellow colour scheme. With the growth of the internet, a website was launched in 1999 to help increase sales further, the latest incarnation of which can be found at www.evanscycles.com.
Since the early 2000s' the company has been steadily expanding, regularly opening new stores each year. By 2012, Evans employs 1100 members of staff, and currently has over 50 stores in the UK, making it one of the biggest cycle retailers in the country. In addition to selling a wide range of popular brands, Evans has also produced product ranges under "Pinnacle" and also currently has an exclusive deal with the "Hoy" brand.
