    Closeout Deal - 2016 Scott Genius 710 Plus Questions Questions

    Hey gang, I found a deal on Genius 710 plus, running a Fox 34 and, of course, the Nude shock. It's a 1x11 with 2.8 Schwalbe tires on it and the Synchros wheels. Normally priced at $4999, I can pick up this closeout model for around $3200.

    I guess my question would be, have any of you personal experience on this bike, and could give me some personal observations?
    Secondly, why is a bike that, at first glance, appears so nice, still sitting on the showroom floor? Am I missing some information on this model? It is difficult to find much information on the internet pertaining to this bike.

    For what's it's worth, I'm currently riding a a RIP9 2x10, that I built up myself.

    I'm looking at Genius 710 (not plus) closeout as well around the same price. But my guess is this line hasn't sold well in the past year or 2 because of the "older" geometry.

    I'm looking at the newer Spark model which is less travel, but is slacker, longer, lower in terms of the "modern trendy geometry".

    I'm not 100% bought in on the new geometry, as I haven't been able to take bikes out on real trail ride to compare. Though the new bikes feel good with my parking lot test rides so far.
