    Happy new owner of a 2014 710 custom.
    First time with scott, couldn't be happier.
    I use this bike for enduro purposes, or anything tougher that my scalpel29 can't handle.
    Couldn't wait any longer back in december for cannondale to put out their first proper 650b versions of Jekyll and trigger, so I went for this scott 710 with the following upgrades:

    Mavic Crossmax wheel
    Enve riser bar
    Prologo endbar
    ESI grips
    Full XX1
    Mavic crossmax SL pedals
    XT discs
    Prologo X8 CPC nack

    I since then replaced the stealth reverb with a KS Lev, as the reverb went already (i bet you know already!) back to rockshox for repair! 3 rides, and the stealth wasn't working already... The KS Lev has been flawless so far (knock wood)

    Even if now, I know what cannondale is releasing later with their 650b range, I know I made the right choice with the 710! Wouldn't have bought the cannondale (and trust me I am a cannondale guy!)

    I guess with the Scalpel Team 29er light as hell for XC and this scott 710, I'm covering the full spectrum!

    Happy rider!

    @Freak: NICE!!!!!!

    my 2013 alu is sold, now the 2014 Premium serves as daily ride

    much more supple and the front weights a lot less, steers nicer
    I swapped the triple for a 2x10 set up

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    This is my 2013 Genius 720. I swapped out for carbon bars and a Thompson Elite seat post. Also dropped the 3x10 and went 1x10 instead. Race Face 32T narrow-wide chain ring and an 1Up 42t cog in the back and I can climb anywhere. Dropped the weight and clutter of a front shifter and derailleur. Otherwise this puppy is stock and weighs in at 29.2 lbs. I'm saving now for new wheels to drop some more weight. But despite being the heaviest bike I've owned in many years, it is honestly a better performer by far. Rode 30 miles yesterday with my buddies. Everyone is fit and rides some pretty sweet bikes. I finished first by 4+ minutes. Not a real race, but you know how the guys can get. Hope to swap out to the Fox shock at some point, but the DT works just fine for me! Cheers!

    Yes definitely not the lightest wheelset, but bombproof so far for me (and I took the mp3 mavic extra warranty so I can have them rebuilt once a year for the next 3 yrs!) and definitely cool looking in yellow with the stealth black of the 710.
    Would still be interested in the Enve AM in 650b. I have the XC 29er on the scalpel, and these are awesome wheels (and quite resistant too!)

    Here is my 730 I just upgraded :
    - 1x10 using wolftooth components
    - custom wheels from Asterion-wheels (Ryde trace enduro rims, Sapim CX-Ray, DT 350 hub)

    A little too much red I think, I plan to change pedals and stem for lighters and blacks ones
