Here's the dilemma - looking for a hardtail 29er in the 2k range with good components. I don't race but ride the trails fast for fun/fitness. I really want a good mix of nice frame with good solid components. Narrowed it down to the Scott Scale 940 (LBS selling for $1920) or the Trek Superfly AL Elite (LBS asking $2100). They're specd about the same, all 3x10, with a mix of SLX/XT parts, the Scott going with SLX brakes and the Trek with Deore. Neither had a great wheelset so I'd likely upgrade at some point..then there's the Scott Scale 930 - carbon frame, weighs about 2 lbs less than the other 2 bikes, 2x10, mix of SRAM X7/X9 components, Deore brakes, better wheelset (not great, but good with Syncros XR/DT Swiss rims and hubs), price from LBS $2500. I'm now leaning towards the Scale 930 but am looking for some opinions (or other options). Advice anyone??
