Hi. Quick Internet search has it at £2.6k at Tredz.co.uk & the 2012 model for £1.8k at www.tweekscycles.co.uk. If you can get the 2012 model and save money, i'd do that... Hope it helps.

Everywhere has it listed at £2599, Tweeks, Evans....etc

SO DON'T pay £3k for it, that is a rip off

Buy wisely - go to Pedal On - the best bike shop in the world - they have it at £2599 - so DO NOT pay £3k for it. And they give you 79 podium points which mean you get lots of FREE GOODIES with your bike (helmet, pedals, computer). They'll ship it to you in a ready to ride state and their mechanics are fabbie. Honest!

See it here: http://www.pedalon.co.uk/acatalog/scott_plasma_30.html

And if you find a better price - they'll match that too!

I have bought loads of gear from these guyz - four bikes too - and they are simply the best. I would always trust them to serve me right.

The other posters here are right - at £3k somebody is trying to stiff you - and that makes my eyes water too!!!

That's great info, but I'm in the US.....no free shipping here. :(. By the time I pay shipping, it might just cost me 3K....

Aha - at $3000USD - it's a steal!!! We can't get it in the UK for less than $3800USD. Buy it and be happy!!! I would.

I've got the Plasma 20 and I'm totally delighted with it. If you get it for a good price, it'll be even more awesome. My LBS in NZ wangled me abut 50% off, so I was very lucky and got it for $3700 NZD (about £1800). I would only say that you'd do well to look at different brake levers...they're the only thing I'm not pleased with so far.
