    I don't think an SX Trail is in its own category, just my opinion.
    People make me mad...

    That saddle makes me mad for some reason.
    I give positive rep all around but then I get negative rep from all the clowns.

    definitely a nice looking bike, but if that's in its own category then so are a lot of other bikes.

    If he said "and a bike thats the bomb" would you think that it legitimately explodes? Pretty sure he just said it as a euphemism.

    I would however believe him if the post read "two bikes with the stoooopidist saddle angles".

    Seat angle on the SC is not bad

    I have found that nose down on the saddle work pretty well on the 6" bike.
    When the bike goes in to full squat on a climb, the saddle is in a great position.

    BTW: Forget lock-out, pro pedal, ssv valving and all that other crap. Run your all mountain suspension at 30-35% sag and lay down some smooth power to the pedals.

    Yup, it's a classic FR bike. Nothing new or different. IMO, it's an AM bike because you can ride all of the mountain with it no limits. Calling a blur TR AM is not just a stretch it's incorrect according the the manufacturer. TR stands for trail. SC's AM bikes are the nomad, bullit (RIP) heckler, and butcher.

    That TRC is lovely, is the 36 shortened at all on it?

    Technically speaking it has 4.92 inches of travel.

    But I wouldn't say no to one with a 140mm 32 on the front

    Werd, X2.

    My seat angles look like they're pointed at the ground too, but like bikemech says when you're sitting in the squish (and/or riding wheelies) it feels perfect, 'specially climbing.

    Like he says, run the sag and let the suspension work; if the frame/suspension design is solid, platforms/pro pedal/blah blah blah are just more stuff to forget to turn off.

    Finally, maybe the SX is unique because he's building it up as a single? Just a thought. Either way it's obviously a work in progress so I'm fairly certain the seat will be adjusted by ride time. But I'm sure the OP appreciates the input.

    The black and orange is eye catching. They just came out with the early release 2012 Spc Rockhoppers in a similiar color scheme. Makes me feel like fall and halloween is coming around. Looks good!

    Oh really? How many FR/AM bike have you seen on the trail with no derailleurs, chain, shifters or brake levers?

    This is the next big thing.
    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.

    I dont see how it couldnt be an AM bike. I see an amazing looking bike that I suppose performs as good as it looks (again, killer setup). Also, as with everybody else, dont see what sets that SX apart.

    Both great looking bikes though!! enjoy
