    How to change Scott geometry

    I recently bought a Scott genius 750 and was told by the guy at the shop that the geometry is adjustable does anyone know about this and what chasing the geometry does and how to do it?

    There is a lever on the handlebars that will switch the rear shock between three modes. The modes are as follows: Lockout, traction control, and descend.
    I don't know about the x fusion shock, but the fox nude shock on the higher end models has less travel in the traction mode compared to the descend mode. The lockout mode is truly as it sounds.
    It seems the dealer is implying that the bike sags less in traction control and lockout modes causing the head tube angle to be steeper and bottom bracket higher. In this case, the geometry will be different with a flick of the lever on your handlebars. I can't confirm this, but it makes sense based on the whole Genius concept.

    EDIT: I think there is also a flip chip at the shock mount. There is a low and high bottom bracket position. That will change the geometry to include HTA and BB height.

    Like dboneslick said there's a "flip chip" on the shock mount (it should be red with the words "low and high" on it and a torx screw). Changes the BB height and the HTA (Head Tube Angle). Doesn't change it by much 7mm BB height difference and 0.5 degree change in HTA, but it does affect how it handles and feels.

    BTW the way things are going in the industry lately, it's all about being long, low and slack.

    Can't believe the shop guy didn't demonstrate this.

    Probably trying to avoid information overload. Talk about a versatile bike.
