    2019 Roscoe 8 for $1,000 a good buy?

    I was originally leaning towards the Fuse expert or a San Quentin 3 but my LBS has last years Roscoe 8 for $1,000 which seems too good to pass up.

    Iím not committed to any bike, this will be my first hard tail since I already have a Stumpy.


    I guess my question is, is it worth it to pay almost double the price of this bike for either of the other 2?

    i know it doesnít have a through axle and bb is pressed fit.


    need to make a decision by tomorrow, thanks everyone.

    I would go for it, you have leftover to upgrade your preferences.

    I did but I feel it may be too small, going back to lbs today to get on a fuse 27.5 to compare...if i go fuse Iím buying the comp and swapping the wheels for 27.5+.

    Will be more money but may ultimately be 100% satisfied.

    Thinking about the expert but I love that black on the comp, will use difference to get new wheels and can always upgrade the rest.
