    Dude, do something about your controls, they are way whack, as is your bar. If you don't know how to properly setup a bike, take it back to the shop and have them do it for you.

    Aha, you're lucky they rolled that way and not forward while going down something steep. Always good to double check all bolts when you've just assembled a bike or picked up a freshly assembled bike.

    actually I opted for the 2012 version -- Scott Scale Elite... it was $1450 (total) from REI... It was the last one left in the entire REI nationwide in size large...

    Does this happen to you ?

    My front wheel hub rotation is uneven and front caliper pad touch disc because of it , today i`am going to the bike shop to fight warranty. This is not good for a new bike !!

    Cons:
    1- Tubes tire ( not tubeless ready )
    2- Heavy Wheelset

    My experience so far :
    1- Front wheel uneven rotation from factory .. LBS made spoke work on wheel -- Problem solve
    2- 5 feet 6 inches so i pick small frame ( medium & large frames looks a lot better )
    3- I upgrade from 26er to 29er so I`am still learning new shifting & handling tech..

    I`am not a expert on bikes but i can only say that i love my new bike.
