    Superfly 100 AL or SCALPEL 29ER ? New-ish.

    I need a little help. I am getting back into mountain biking after 11 years. I really like full-suspension.

    I have found 2 bikes I like and there are deals on both of them. I need help with that one is the better bike / deal.

    I can get the SCALPEL 29ER 4 for $1800 or I could get the Superfly 100 AL for $1900.

    I am not hardcore but I do like technical riding.

    Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks,

    The Trek Superfly has better components, so I would suggest that one. The Superfly has a higher end RockShox fork with 100mm instead of the Cannondale with 80mm of travel.

    I was in the same exact boat. Haven't ridden since high school (11 years or so). I was going to stay under a $1000 budget but the Superfly did look tempting. But for $2200 I held my ground. Told the LBS i'd come back the next day and think it over between a Marlin or increasing my budget a bit for a Cobia. Saw the summer sale started today and ended up getting the Superfly lol. So much for my $1000 budget huh?

    Bought it just a few hours ago and rode it around the nearest park for a couple miles. It's awesome. So much nicer than whatever store bought brand MTB I rode when I was a kid. So much lighter too. And I like that I can lock out the shocks so I can basically have a FS or an HT at the flick of a switch.

    Thank you all for your help. I was able to get a better deal on Superfly 100 AL Elite for $2000.00

    I love this thing. It rocks.

    That's a smokin deal! I was at my lbs last week and the lowest they would go on the elite was $2600! Needless to say I didn't buy it at that price.
