    2015 Scalpel 29 carbon team

    Is this a good deal? I am interested in those who have a similar setup and recommendations for upgrade, my other option was a Giant Carbon trance advanced 2. Thank you

    I have the same bike. I would recommend inverting the bearing cup(install it in the bottom of the headtube) and add some offset bushing to make the HT angle close to 69deg. right now its 71. also, a wider handlebars. I wouldn't change the brakes and drivetrain.

    This is not a good deal at all. I warrantied many of those green 2015 team frames, including two with misaligned linkages. That generation of Lefty had issues, the Rock Shox Sprint on will need constant bleeding, the Enve XC rims are only 19mm internal width, the OP stem will need a warranty plug on the steerer that adds weight, and the geometry is dated. That generation of Scalpel is fast, but fragile. You could do much better with a current Scalpel in the $4000 range.
