    help with first bike

    Hi there,

    I am about to buy my first real MTB. Given my off std body type (short legs, long torso), and availability in my area I have narrowed it down to:

    Scott Scale 760 in XS (discoutned to $1040)
    https://www.scott-sports.com/us/en/p...Scale-760-Bike



    GT Zaskar in Comp trim in XS (discounted to $999)
    2016 Zaskar - 25 Years of Good Times

    Geometry seems very close. The Scale XT rear Dr (Vs SLX in GT) and Shimano cranks (vs FSA in GT); but then the GT has a RS 30 GOld fork (vs Scott has Silver).

    The GT may be a bit lighter...

    Can't decide.

    Any advise would be greatly appreciated!

    THanks,

    Albert

    Check out the specs on the Ghost Kato FS7 on sale now at REI (sole distributor in US) at UNDER $2K. You won't find a better setup for the money.
