    Hopefully this doesn't break any rules but for anyone looking to "build" up a bike, my used carbon scout is for sale, just needs a few small parts to complete it.

    Does anyone know what the suggested or OE fork offset is on 2017 Scouts?

    just whatever the standard 27.5Ē offset is. Any normal fork will do.

    Anyone here with a medium or large Scout Carbon and a 125mm Reverb Stealth with the Connectamajig hose connector? Is there enough space to push the post all the way in to the frame or does the Connectamajig hit the rocker pivot axle?

    Sheís a porker, as luck would have it itís pouring rain here so no rides yet

    Med Gx Build
    Diety bladerunners, diety knuckledusters, dhf 2.6 3c up front and 2.6 Rekon 3c rear
    3-4 oz in each tire of sealant. Also switched out the dumb plunger to a reverb paddle 1x

    Pretty happy with it. I came from a heavy plus hardtail with 3 inch tires so I doubt Iíll notice the weight. First impressions are the front wheel is way out there! In a good way.

    1st ride was in the wet, suspension wasnít set up right so I fought it a lot, so Iíll do a proper ride report in the dry or at least drier I can say that sbg is legit, going at speed itís like all the sudden ďoh this feels good and solid and tracks wellĒ hard to describe. Iíve got some tinkering on suspension to work on to make it pedal a little better, I set sag in the rear at the top of tr recommended 17-19 mm, going to set it at 17 and bring up lsc I had it open. This was more of a shakedown ride for me, I will update with a proper report later

    Proper ride report: 2018 gx scout, I finally got a good ride in tonight, this bike is rowdy as hell. Once I stop paying attention to the front wheel thatís way out there and just riding it clicked for me. It just wants to go fast, had a couple of steep punchy climbs that sucked but as long as you keep momentum this thing just wants to move. Iíve still got some suspension tuning to do itís still a little harsher than I think it can be, Iíll borrow a shockwiz soon and see what data it kicks out. Overall Iím very pleased with this bike, excited to get it on some more challenging trails. Iím in ne texas so we actually have to earn the downs so I do a decent amount of climbing and itís not bad at all. Letís get to some complaints. The RockShox Reverb is a turd, I came from a transfer and the RS is a piece of shit, cold weather it doesnít like to work. I canít even believe that Sram things anyone wants the dumbass plunger, gtfo with that garbage, swapped-to the reverb 1x (if I had it to do again I would do a cable replacement, Wolf tooth etc. almost same price) Probably swap it for a BikeYoke revive eventually. Gx Eagle: mostly happy with it, getting a weird pop sound (sounds like a spoke moving) in the drive train when putting down power, seems to be after Iíve gone airborne or worked the rear shock a lot, and doesnít do it all the time. aside from that it shifts great and reliably. Brakes are noisy, may be my half assed bedding in, rear brake does the tink tink thing, Iím going to replace stock pads with semi organic and see if that does it. Otherwise they work fine. If I were being picky I would say the paint is VERY easy to scratch. I scratched mine with an Allen key when I was building it so Iím not that worried about it after I broke the seal. Still working through some fit stuff as well.
    Overall I feel like I get it now, the giddy up, SBG etc. it likes to go fast, rail turns, it just feels fun. Not sure how else to describe it. Thanks for reading my diatribe, I just felt like I should tell someone

    Thatís also very much by feel it may feel even better with less air but to get the sag on the low end of the recommended 17-19 mm, (im right around 17.5mm sag) for you being lighter, may ride better at 19mm, mine felt mushy at 19mm sag

    Thanks for the info. Tr guys suggested a good starting point should be body weight -15PSI when I asked them by mail, but even so I could'nt get to the recommended sag (15mm).
    any way, It ride awesome! Switching from 2013 Covert this bike feels better in any aspect, climb great, very nimble into corners, and love to jump anything.

    It is 17-19mm just said that needed to air down alot to get there(minus 20-25psi) and when trying what Transition suggested( minus15psi) was getting only 15mm of sag, hope I was more clear about that now.

    Hello, what is your inseam? What saddle height do you pedal?
    I'm trying to understand if Scout 2018 S or M is better for me.

    I am 5'8", and I demo'ed the M X01 last month and it fit perfectly. I decided within two trails that the Scout the bike that I need to have but I have somehow since slipped into analysis-paralysis and cannot stop agonizing over whether there is something similar that I would like even more.

    I am upgrading from a 2013 Pivot Mach 5.7 AL which I still have a ton of fun on, so anything new is going to be an upgrade in terms of what has come out in the last 5 years so I should just do it I guess.

    Anyone have any opinions on building up a 2018 SBG Scout frame with a standard offset fork?

    My fork has 44mm offset. I figure that will slightly increase the wheelbase and the reduced trail compared to the stock 38mm offset will make it slightly less stable at speed, but I'm wondering *how* much real world difference there would be compared to the engineers' intent?
