    2014 Genius LT anyone?

    This is a tempting frame for me. Anyone know the availability for a frame only is the U.S? I have my own build kit with fork/shock & carbon wheelset. Mine would go from this To looking closer to this!

    I have pretty much narrowed my choices down to a carbon Norco Range or Knolly Warden but not ruling this one out. My all time fave bike was a Yeti ASR-7 single pivot so I am guessing this would ride similar!?

    I have had the complete bike on order since September. First it was to ship in October, then November, now I hear it should be Christmas time. The Kiwis did a review of the 710 - same front triangle, aluminum rear and said it was one of the top three mountain bikes they had ridden. On the other hand, Pinkbike poopoo'd it. So - I am going to reserve judgement until I ride it myself.

    As for a frame - I have not seen any options for frame only.

    the 2015 has revised rear-damper-settings, you can change the angle of the fork and the new fox 36

    german mag tested it and it is very improved
    though for the fast&rough riders swapping the internals of the fork to oem-fox is advisable scott has "tuned" internals in the fork whom are better suited for non-racers
    dixit that mag

    I'll have my 2015LT next week but that is too short notice to take it to the MontBlanc Enduro-tour early august :-(

    LT has the - huge - advantage of the twinlock-system
    on a Nomad you can choose the damper
    you might want to test any Scott fully with the twinlock to decide wether it gives you an advantage or not

    I have the twinlock but I'm not completely convinced it's an advantage. You're basically using damping presets, only really setting sag and rebound. The Nomad can be spec'd with the Vivid Air and the 36 RC2.
