    2012 XCR Pro 29 or 2013 Scott Spark 920?

    Opinions? Looking to buy one of these quick and can get them for same price. I'm leaning toward the Jamis but can't find any reviews on this bike. Any insight appreciated. Only negative I see is the standover is high on the Jamis but I can make due. How is the rear suspension link mechanism? Seems to be a unique design to Jamis but seems ok for transfer of load.

    Measured my current bike standover and it is 1.5" taller than the Jamis so should be ok. Just pulled the trigger so hopefully a great bike considering the lack of reviews out there. The specs look good on paper at least.

    Here are the pics. First ride last Saturday and it was riding like a dream. Little issues with the X9 derailleurs but the bike is an excellent ride. Love the 29er wheels and the bike is like a rocket. Frame size is perfect. Initial observations I'm very happy with the purchase. Platforms for riding around the block but I use egg beaters on the trail.
