Looks amazing and the pics of the teets make me horny. I miss riding that area. Weight is good too. About a pound less (frame) than my alu Ripmo and on par or less than many carbon AM frames out there. I’d like to know more…

Apparently Vital commenters can’t take a joke either lol.

Unlikely... as I remember it (and I could be wrong) wyn used to rag on the Athertons in the early days of wyntv (perhaps it was only an episode?). I always thought less of him after that. I'm not trying to incite drama, but I think there's a stanky history there..

Good point but I think he does that to everyone and lord bummer can’t take a joke. Now that pinkbike is dead MTB comment section drama needs a new home anyway so blast away. I hear there is a certain EWS rider who cuts the course…who could it be????

Amazing build, RJ! Hey any idea how true to size those Mazzas are? Historically Vittoria's 2.6 tires blow up a bit smaller than that. Just curious if a 2.4 or 2.6 is better up front for someone looking for 2.4-2.5 up front (my 2.6 Martello is very 2.45ish).

I hit LIKE for anything steel. But as Gary said below, this is just plain sexy.

Proper bike fit is super important for cross country racing, so I'd like a race bike that's super hard to make reach/stack adjustments on. If it's hard to perform basic maintenance too, that's a bonus.

I'd ride that. The look is incredible.

Not my cup of tea, but very nice design. Super clean alloy frames. Interested to see if they will be releasing a new Genius.

Are you at all convinced by its offset from bb? Nukeproof has new measures in their geo tables (G,H) which deal with this problem again. Cust service informs me that these dimensions include saddle stack.

Seems like the Scott designers tried really hard to make stuff look clean, and keep it easy on the eyes. Except for the actual rider, where there are still four cables for the left hand to work and cleave off your thigh if anything goes wrong. Unrideable.

Bikes look awesome, but the left side of the bars made me throw up in my mouth. Glad to see Scott actually using the Bold acquisition.

Please prevent any handlebar or stem adjustment and throw my shock into an oven. Oh, and add a bunch of cables and levers, I miss having a front shifter.

Matt Dogg, I think you hit the nail on the head. The aggressive geometry on a shorter-travel platform will hit the mark for quite a few riders. I would love to get the chance to even take this thing to Downieville and see just how fast it could go. It definitely nuked the stuff around...more

Yeah I think it'd appeal to the masses more with a hair steeper hta and of course a pound taken off the frame. For my riding and preferences the geo and travel is pretty perfect for a do-it-all bike and not that far off my current bike. Mine is alu also but a pound lighter.

Some riders do want progressive/aggressive geo though but don't need a full on 160r/160-170f bike. I see the demand for this, the frame's just kinda heavy.
