    Love my rm 950. Climbs great, never need to mess with the rear shock.

    I ride an element 950, super fast bike, climbs and handles great. Super efficient platforms and very nimble.There is no difference in frames between 2012 and -13 elements.
    ,
    I don't know anything about the scalpel.

    Rocky mountain builds great bicycles. Go for a testride if you can. If not, you can not really go wrong with a RM.
