    Rode my Scratch 8 for the first time

    Today i was finally able to get out on my Scratch 8 Fr today at killington. I got to say it was a blast. I need to do a spring change on the fork and change to a set of wider bars, but for the first time out it was a great bike. And only will get better with a better set up. Any one have any set up tricks for the bike? Thanks

    Did you get to peddle it or just DH? I'm trying to decide between a Scratch and a Remedy but leaning towards the Remedy for better xc capabilities.

    they both pedal exceptionally well. the remedy is the better climber due to its longer toptube, slightly steeper angles & lower weight.

    Thanks, I have made up my mind on a Remedy 8 or 9, for the kind of riding I'll do with it it will be perfect.

    I did get to pedal it. I was very surprised how well it did pedal. With someone who is actually in shape it would do real good. I ordered some new springs today and a wider set of bars for this weekend so i can get it dialed in for my weight. I cant wait for sunday.
