Hi Ellsworth Owners,
My last XC race bike was as C'Dale Scalpel (carbon, 100mm), and other than it being either poorly manufactured or fragile, I absolutely loved the bike. Nothing I've thrown a leg over handles so nimbly and pedals so efficiently. With the Scalpel, I had to do little more than think 'right', and the bike would go to the right.
I have an opportunity to buy a new 2010 (SST.1) Truth at a great price.
Does anyone here have experience with both bikes? The praise about ICT and it's efficiency is universal, so I'm not worried about how the Truth will pedal or handle rough terrain. I am concerned whether or not it will match the nimble, almost effortless handling of the Scalpel.
I was also considering a 2010 Evolve, but the concern above is steering me away from that, despite being tempted by the advantages of a big wheel. The 2011 Evolve might be a different story with its more agggressive geo, however, it would be considerably more money than the 2010.
Any and all feedback is appreciated.
