    Anyone riding a Transition Scout or Patrol in the Gorge?

    Wondering how good a fit the Scout and Patrol are (especially the Scout) for the local trails... ride mostly Post Canyon (really like Kleeway) and Syncline.

    Haven't made it to Thrillium etc yet... Have made it to Bend a decent number of times...

    Since I bought a Scout, I can answer my own question. The Scout works great here. The Post Canyon trails are in good shape and relatively smooth. I actually did most of my riding with the rear shock in the locked out position (which isn't 100% locked, since it still softens up for bigger stuff). Makes me think I could have gotten away with a hard tail. Since there are plenty of man made features and the bike is "poppy", that is, lively enough to take to a park or BMX place for example, it makes for a much more fun ride than the 6.7" of travel I was on before (also given I never desired to go warp speed over everything).
