|Sweden, 2021. We’ve seen many projects from Gustav Gullholm aka “Dangerholm” in recent years, each one truly unique in their own way, striving for the ultimate in attention to detail time and time again. That being said, there is one Spark that stands out like no other. Who needs hyper cars if you can have a “Hyper Spark?” Just when you thought you’d seen everything, Dangerholm drops the mic…again.
Inspired by modern road bikes and hyper cars alike, Dangerholm set out to apply the same sleek and clean look of these to SCOTT’s full suspension mountain bike the Spark RC. Build from scratch with some of the industry’s finest parts and technologies, as well as fully integrated cable routing, wrapped into a custom “pearl white” finish, this bike is not meant to pick up dust in showrooms.
With it’s top of the line spec, one piece Syncros carbon wheels and state-of-the-art world-cup winning carbon bike frame, this bike is meant to be ridden and bound to make it one of the fastest bikes out there.
The Hyper Spark comes with the latest technologies such as SRAM AXS wireless shifting and FOX LiveValve automatic electronic suspension. A lot of modifications, ingenuity and attention to detail were required to complete this ambitious build. A steering stop system was molded onto the SCOTT Spark RC SL frame in order not to damage the internally routed cables, as well as modifications to the handlebars and fork to allow for the custom cable routing. All heavily reinforced with safety in mind, and endless hours spent on creating a perfect finish for the end result.
“The hyper car inspiration wasn’t all about looks, performance was key. No stone was left unturned here, so from full carbon wheels and ceramic bearings to the latest suspension technology – every single component is chosen for speed and top performance. A dream spec to say the least.”
Gustav Gullholm aka Dangerholm
Gustav Gullholm, better known as Dangerholm, is a custom bike builder from Sweden. In recent years he’s taken bikes to their extreme by building the World’s Lightest Cross-Country bikes as well as the lightest 29-inch Downhill bikes. It’s not all about weight though, the bikes must always ride great and look the part. With his latest SCOTT based project, the Hyper Spark, he focuses on the latter two trying to build the fastest riding and the cleanest looking XC/XCM mountain bike the world has ever seen.
