    With little reputation on the forum and a start weight of 19.6 lb it wouldnt qualify. You have bikes coming out of the box that weight in the 18.7 lb. including a fox fork (Scott Scale 700 SL)

    Do you still have this bike how is it working out for you? I just purchased one hopefully have it next week when I cracked bmy Haro FLC. I just got the one star sicne I have a lot of used parts I want to "upgrade" to including I9s, XT brakes, xx1crank with x9 shifter and deraileur. Syntace post, niner carbon bar.

    Be nice to have some backup parts or be able to have a 2x drivetrain when I want it!
    XC, Road, XXC, Endurance, Mtn, All-Mtn, Cross, Gravel, just go have fun on 2 wheels!

    Still have the bike & enjoy the bike. Although once I purchased it, it went thought all the upgrades. After a season of XC racing everything is good. The bike currently has 950 miles and no complaints.

    Sound like your heading in the right direction with parts. GOod Luck !!!
