    Waiting anxiously for info as well. Demoed the aluminum version and really liked it. My "guess" would be yes for carbon.

    I'm torn between building a Scout and a carbon Smuggler at the moment. I'd prefer a Scout but 4kg for frame is pretty ridiculous. The Smuggler is a full kilo lighter but I'll have to buy new wheels to build it which adds to the cost.

    Should be a new Scout coming but look for changes compared to the current model. Carbon should be available.

    My kid really wants the carbon Scout bike for his birthday, which is coming up in a couple of weeks. He's fine not receiving it on his birthday and getting it further down the line, but I really wish they'd make the announcement that it's coming prior to his birthday so it would be "official."

    There is a lot of rumors going around about the "New Scout!" I really hope that it comes out soon. I did a TR demo in my local riding area and talked with the TR guy about the Scout. He gave up no info but it sounds like they are doing something different with the Scout. I asked about the carbon Scout and his answer was vague.......but he inferred that they were cooking up something juicy......fingers crossed!

    I thought I found a picture of a new TR bike...possibly a Scout. It looks like its just Sentinel though with some custom stickers. That was exhausting trying to figure out.

    That looks like a 2018 sentinel. Here's a pic of my old one for comparison.

    Saw this on Matt Macduffs Instagram last night riding with the transition dudes. For sure a transition. Looks to be carbon and less of a rounded look and more sleek. The new scout??

    edit: I donít know how to upload pictures but if someone else could help me out that would be great. Itís the tan bike in the Instagram stories.

    Correct. Itís not a direct post where you gather likes and comments type of thing. If you go to his profile and you click on his picture in his bio section of his profile because you get to any of his uploaded pictures it will take you to his stories. There you will be able to click through until you see the one that has him on a ride with the guys from transition. There you will be able to spot out the tan possibly new carbon scout.

    Looks like a Horst Link.....that head-tube though, good catch. Not sure what kind of bike it is. Someone will probably know.

    They just colored it that way so people would think itís the current color way of this years bike.

    Hide it in plain sight.

    In the one after that picture at the end it shows him and the bike has a TR logo on it. Looks production ready.

    I believe this is also a new Scout(or some sort of new TR bike) Look at how flat that top tube is. I went through all the current bikes and nothing had that kind of angle on the top tube.

    Is the draw for a Carbon scout, mid-travel 27.5 bike that big?

    I honestly thought that its the sentinel that would be the draw?

    Ride a Scout and youíll understand. Party out front/business out back. Itís a fun bike that tempts you to get rowdy. Itís a very manageable trail bike that punches above its weight.

    I understand the draw to a 29er, but refuse to give up the characteristics of a 27.5er.

    Assuming the colors are the same as the current lineup, that dark grey one might be the new Smuggler other folks were talking about. That's just me guessing, I have no way of knowing.

    I can't imagine they are going to keep the same colors for a new model! But you could be right that its a "new" Smuggler painted to match the current colorway.

    Lets hope they are just using current colorway to disguise the bikes underneath.

    The OG Scout is a massively different bike to the Sentinel. If the rumor about the new Scout being 140mm rear is accurate then it will be a fair bit more bike than the original playful Scout, not a real replacement IMO.

    I gave up waiting on the Scout and got myself a carbon Smuggler. It's very playful as well, but the larger wheels take away a little from the berm slashing shenanigans that my OG Limeade Scout had going for it.

    The new Scout, whatever it may be still looks rad though. Even if it has a wee bit more travel, I think it'd just be a case of adapting to that and getting back to looking for every possibility of boosting off small trail obstacles and landing in the next corner. Those were good bikes.

    I demoed the Smuggler and I just didnít ďfeel it.Ē Iím sure if I gave it more time I could have set it up better and gotten used to it, but the OG Scout will always go down in my book as a bike that changed the way I thought about how much fun MTBíing can be. I really am crossing my fingers the bike doesnít grow/change/morph too much. Keep it nimble with short chain stays, short travel out back for poppy/playful feeling......I want to be able to catch air from launching off of acorn tops again!!!

    Oh I know man. I raced DH for years, slowed down and just got into doing weekend shuttles with the mates. Got really out of shape and decided to get a trail bike to lose weight. I bought a Giant Trance initially but it was horrible and boring and the wheels were flexy as hell. I demo'ed a Scout and couldn't stop smiling, went back and bought one. I did well over 10,000km on that little Scout all over Australia. XC, Enduro and marathon events, even a beginner cyclo-cross race. Skate parks, BMX tracks, National DH courses. I broke a chainstay on it (warrantied) and towards the end it was getting very rough looking, but my girlfriend has stolen it now and left me out looking for a replacement.

    The new alloy frames are like 4kg though which is friggen mental, so I'm giving the carbon Smuggler a go instead.

    The guy I sold my Scout to broke a chainstay on that bike too. I think it was common on the OG Giddy Up bikes. I think that's why the weight of the new frames got so heavy. They really beefed up the frames for SBG and I'll admit they were heavy, but it was because of all the reinforcements they did to areas like chainstays and putting dual bearings on those pivots. Frame just looked massive. I had mine just under 32lbs with a GX build, which wasn't horrible.

    I'm hoping the new Scout Carbon is 30lbs or less.
