Hi Rocky Mountain fans. I'm looking for a new race weapon. I've narrowed my search to the following:
2013 Rocky Mountain Vertex 999 RSL
2013 Scott Scale 900 Premium w/XX1 swapped for XTR
I like a few things about the Vertex over the Scott such as:
- Much lower standover
- 12x142 rear TA
- SID WC versus the FOX
Advantages for the Scott are:
- Slacker headtube for more stability. I never have a problem turning but keeping an HT pointed straight down rough descents is another matter.
- More compliant frame (from what I've heard)
- 50g Lighter frame
However, I can't find any references for the weight of the Vertex 999. I've found a few references to the 990 at a little over 21lbs w/o pedals. I figure the 999 should be a bit under 20 but can anyone confirm from first hand knowledge? The other question I have for any Vertex RSL owners is how do you find the high speed stability? I don't want a twitchy handling bike.
