Demo bikes are hard to come by here in CT. I've researched a bunch of 29er hardtails in this range and I'd suggest you take a look at the Redline D660 too. It comes as a 1x9 but has good parts and a good reputation. I feel like the Spec and Fisher don't offer great value for the money, at least near their list prices.Bounty Hunter said:Congrats on the sale and new purchase. I'm still thinking about buying one myself. I'm kind of waiting for the weather to warm up enough for a good test ride on one first.
I'd like to compare it more to the new Specialized Stumpjumper HT Comp and X-Cal or Paragon. Has anyone tested all of those as well in their decision to go with the Scale 29er?
