... In Dalby Forest England. Scott were running a test ride and BBQ session along with Nick Craig this evening so I got the chance to ride a Scale 29r.
I have a Soul Cycles Dillinger which is set up rigid SS so this was the first time I'd tried a 29r with gears and suspension and I absolutely loved it!
I can't quite think why someone would say that 29rs don't corner well as the beginning of the Dalby red route has tight uphill corners that the scale just lapped up. I'm seriously considering selling my two hardtails and possibly getting one of these or possibly a Santa Cruz Highball which I've not ridden as yet.
Comparing the two bikes geometry the Scott seems a lot slacker but I think this is what made descending such a joy on this bike too.
Yup I think I am pretty much convinced that the Dillinger and Orange frames, forks etc could be appearing on eBay sometime very soon!
