    Though the Sunday is(was) an amazing, amazing bike... I'd probably lean towards the Scott. Simply because at least with Scott you can call and talk to a person when something goes wrong with the bike. Iron Horse is completely gone.

    Never ridden a Sunday but hear good things... of course the company is now a bit screwed so parts and warranty stuff might be an issue - best to check out the IH forum for the latest on that . I own a gambler.. see my write up here Scott Gambler - Initial Thoughts

    gambler. the IH's have bushing issues and with IH going out of business it's going to be impossible to get them.

    He should be fine, because the Sunday actually uses bearings - not bushings. And they just so happen to be easy to find for replacement when need be, in fact a full rebuild "set" can be pieced together from VXB.com (bearing's retailer) for under $20. All you need to do is pop out the old ones, look on the side sheilding for the bearing code (i.e. 6800-2RS) enter it in VXB's website and click purchase.

    Even though Ironhorse is temporarely adrift, they will be back. However the Sunday's awsomeness has never been adrift - it just is simply a perfect race bike.
