    Great bike. And even though it is expensive, it's priced better than it's competition with similar parts.

    I've gotten myself the 900 RC 2014 - I can tell you it's really amazing : stable, yet responsive, the handling, the comfort ... From the first minute I felt right at home. My previous 29er frameset was a Merida Big Nine Team Edition, which I never felt really comfortable on. The Scott is amazing, I love it !

    I have a Scale 940 and love it but it's almost completely upgraded and I wondering what's next! I'm thinkin about upgrading to the 900sl frame a little later down the road! My frame has taken a little beating since I just started riding again.

    Both are difficult to compare, as they each have their own qualities.

    The feedback while riding is a different experience on each.

    The Lynskey is a tiny bit more stable on the technical stuff, but that might as well have to do with it's weight. Comfort of the Scale is slightly more than on my Lynskey (note : both have a Syntace P6 Hi Flex seatpost), while the Lynskey handles a little sharper.
