I didn't think I'd like the raw finish that much, but your pics make it clear to me, that would be my first "color" choice.

Great bike!

Didn't know SC were doing them in raw. Wouldn't mind to change my black one to raw. Would it be possible/straight forward to strip the paint off etc?

I took it for it's first ride today on the trails. They've finally dried up enough. This bike is awesome. It's solid up front, floats over everything and climbs like a freakin mountain goat. I see good things happening here.

I forgot my camera otherwise I'd post some pics of it in it's natural habitat. Maybe this weekend I'll get some more up for all to see.

The raw color is awesome. I really didn't think I would like it either. I really wanted a black one but when I saw this one and the black side by side... the raw was much more eye catching. I think it looks faster too.

I'll be interested to see what you come up with for a weight. I have nearly an identical bike with different wheels & hubs. I'm at 32# on my super-precise bathroom scale. I don't have a dropper post either.
