    usually in small quantities in in the fall, then after the 1st of the year in masse. That said, this year there were some manufacturung delays that didn't put certain models into showrooms (in the US at least) until May.

    If I was to guess, the MSRP will line up closely with the current Genius LT. If they had kept the pull shock, I would guess a 10% hike, but I think the new set up will actually keep pricing somewhat consistant. We will see.

    Well, if not before, then Eurobike at the end of August would be the likely unveiling of the whole line.

    well Scott is pretty devoted to their racing colors. Black, White, and maybe red are pretty safe bets

    So I'm a little confused. There used to be noticeable distinction between the Spark and the Genius. Spark was the XC/trail rider with a bit more available travel than a "race only" bike. The Genius was more of what I would call All Mountain, longer travel, heavier.
    The 2013 you posted looks just like a Spark with 25mm more travel, is that really enough to make it a separate line?

    theres a genius lt too... as always, it just appears that lines are blurring. im looking at specs on the sparks and the genius's now and that thing comes in close in weight with a stiffer fork (34) and more travel. the spark is a lightweight ripper and this all mountain version (so to speak) is rather appealing as any racing i do is cat 3 at clyde weight anyhow
