Strengths:    Good looking N.W. Native American paint, stiff frame, good spec except for tires and grips.

Weaknesses:    Tires and grips. The WTB Prowler on the front is horable for my local dirt which is loamy and moist. Rear WTB Stout on the rear is good. Grips are DB BMX grips that are grippy but cheap and will stip fast. I replaced with a pair of lock ons. I do not like the Hammer Schmitt. Paint isn't very durable. Would like a little steeper seat angle for the climb and a slacker head angle for the descent but both are managable they way they are. DHX air feels less then lively so I changed to a Large can RP23 and it feels much better.

Bottom Line:   
Great AM shredder with a few minor changes, mostly pearsonl type things. Great build for the price! It's a one of a kind out on the trail...people are alwasy asking about it.

Strengths:    Components. Decent climber, unbelivable for freeride.
Fun bike.... hammershidt crank is the best thing since sliced bread.... you will stop using rear gears...

Weaknesses:    Weight.... 34.87... is always bad for going up.... going down, and jumping... just great.

Bottom Line:   
Fun bike that gives you a lot of confidence when in the saddle. It gives you this "safe... IN not ON the bike" feeling that you can not fly over the bars, but you can :) and you will since you will try stuff you would have never done on any regular, light All-mountain bike.

Help! New Scapegoat owner....

I just picked up a brand new 2011 scapegoat frame, I'll be transferring over all my components from my current rig that's running a 160mm fork to the goat. My question is, am I able to run a 160mm fork on the goat, will this effect the bikes characteristics since it comes complete with a 180mm fork? ... Read More »
