    Colors and 2016 offers some Spec/Pricing options
    If there's no mountain, it's just biking.

    The 2016 scout, aside from a few parts that are different I believe, raised the BB 5mm and is spec'd with 170mm cranks instead of 175. The 10mm, believe it or not, really helps out with the pedal strikes which are kind of annoying with the 2015 model until you adjust your riding style and use the crank at the top of the stroke like a gas pedal and then back it off to avoid striking when appropriate.

    2015 to 2016 changes are colors and BB raise 5mm + 170mm cranks spec'd

    if you go 2015, get some crank boots and remember how to ratchet pedal!

    Just received my 2016 Scout 4, and it did come with 170 mm cranks and a slightly higher BB.
