    Strengths:    Genius Shock, Frame geometry

    Weaknesses:    That would be the Scott company itself. Horrible customer service and warranty.

    Bottom Line:   
    The bike and the Genius shock are incredible! I had doubts about the two stage lockout, but it really is engineered to work well. Sometimes better than my Fox RP23. The complete lock out is like a hard tail. This bike can really climb. Go back to full suspension and the 150mm travel is sweet. Takes a while to get it dialed in, but worth it once you do. I have two of these bikes. One for me and one for my son. Unfortunately the shock went out on mine the first ride - with less than four miles on it and in less than an hour. The Scott company dragged their feet on the warranty. Yes, it was eventually fixed. Overall, great bike - when it works. If not, good luck dealing with Scott. My LBS was terrific, but they can only do so much. 1 pepper because Scott warranty stinks. 5 peppers if they had actually done their job and for the design itself.

    Scott Genius 40 or 50? I'm really on the fence.

    Has anyone ridden both? Differences look minor, Sram v Deore XT, RockShox v Fox. Is a beginner to intermediate rider going to notice the difference? ThanksRead More »

    Genius 50 Fork

    I've been offered a good deal on a 2010 Genius 50 at the LBS. I'm thinking of upgrading the RockShox fork to the same or similar Fox fork that comes with the Genius 40, 30, 20, 10 models. From your opinions and experiences would upgrading be a good idea?Read More »
