First Look: All-New 2014 Scott Genius LT

For 2014, Scott went back to the drawing board with their big-mountain, do-it-all Genius LT. The redesigned bike features 170mm travel, 27.5-inch (650B) wheels, aggressive geometry, and a simple lever that enables you to pedal it up anything you'd like to rally back down.

    I like the idea of this bike as a potential up-grade from my 2011 Scott Genius LT20. One aspect of my current ride I like is the adjustable front & rear travel adjustability (F180-140mm, R180-110mm). But this new Genius LT loses its fork travel adjust. What's it like climbing or riding trail on a 170mm fork with 135mm on the rear? I realise that this limited amount of travel is in the top part of the full range. By the way, for all those concerned about breaking the travel adjust lever, I've come off my bike many times but never broken it, though the Reverb lever has suffered sometimes.

    Holy looping cable under the BB batman!

    Also, that CS length is approaching DH bike lengths...take an act of congress to manual it but that's the compromise needed to keep 27.5" wheels from rubbing the seat tube with 170mm travel.

    As clever as the suspension is I'd like a frame only with a standard shock.

    JCL, simple, just don't hook up the cable!
