    I been wondering why Scott stop making this bike. It goes under the family of the Scale bikes, but other than been a hardtail is far more capable than a XC bike in the descends. It came with decent parts and a good geometry for a 2018 bike. In my case it came with a 125mm dropper, an recon rl...

  5. Beginner's Corner

    The last time Rocky Mountain gave the Altitude a thorough once over was back in 2013. That was right around the time when the mountain bike industry adopted 27.5 wheels and became obsessed with the word enduro. Now, they've unveiled a new version. It still has 27.5 wheels, 150mm of rear travel...

    Update: Dec. 5 We got the Foes 275 out on the trails yesterday for the first time. The bike weighed in at 33 lbs with the Spank pedals so it's no svelte xc ballerina. But the pedaling platform worked well and it had a good climbing position with short 17.1 inch stays. The head angle 67 degrees...
