    The green is hot...
    Show us some pictures and fill in the details when you get it.
    I can't decide between the Air RDO and the Cannondale Scalpel 29er...

    Nice!

    Took me a few rides to get used to it after coming off a 2012 Rumblefish Elite. Steering is VERY quick compared to the Rumblefish, but it's not as compliant over the really gnarly stuff. When it's not too rocky (and the trail is faster than a snail's pace), the RDO is waaay faster.

    Specs: It's a full XT build with tubeless Racing Ralphs, American Classic wheels, Fox Float 29 fork, and Selle Max SLR Gel Flo saddle. Weight can vary a bit depending on what pedals or accessories I've got on - but it's just under 22lbs (size M). Spent 3.5 hrs riding the trails around Clinton Lake this morning. Perfect day!
