I have (if I remember right) a 2008 Scandal 29er. My Salsa Spearfish just broke a chainstay yesterday (which I'm hoping will get warrantied). Depending on what happens I'm likely left with 2 scenarios.......
1. Salsa doesn't replace my rear triangle for some reason. If that's the case my Scandal will probably return to duty as my XC bike for the time being... I'll move my fork, gears, bars, brakes, stem all over from it to the Scandal and have a nice geared hardtail. Then I will buy a new FS rig, probably a Salsa Horsethief.
2. Salsa replaces my triangle and I keep the Spearfish as is. I really need a bike with a little more than 100mm travel, so I might buy the Horsethief anyway (was planning to buy something this year...). In which case I probably need to get rid of a bike. I just don't have the room and I really don't ride it enough to warrant keeping a rigid SS around. So If I sell one, in this scenario it probably ends up being the Scandal.
My question, what could I realistically expect to get for a 2008, rigid (On One Carbon fork), SS Scandal? Its got very modest components, BB7 brakes, cheap race face stem and Ritchey seat post. Cheap bars. Stans Arch wheelset.
There's another possibility that I could sell my existing commuter and change the Scandal over to commuter duty (gears).... But I can probably get more for my Scandal than my 1974 Schwinn LeTour II.
