Put in a preorder for a Sentinel AL frame for my son. Not a big Fox fan, but the Float X should be much better than the DPX and easily retuned if needed.

She is a bit of a piggy. With the rear axle 10 pounds 1oz in large (no headset, add 4 oz for that to 10 pounds 5 oz). My Banshee Prime in the same size is 9 pounds 4 oz with the headset.

My lbs got a nice sized transition order in and got to demo the scout. It was nice but it is a bit on the heavier side, might look at a carbon frame at some point.

It may seem like a stupid question, but is it gloss blue? Or just gloss blue at the stays? I hate to say it, but my flat gray 2020 Sentinel aluminum is not the most appealing of colors. I would have preferred something shiny.

Gloss all around. Same finish and color over the entire frame.

The problem is you're using a fishing scale -- these are programmed to add a minimum of 2 pounds. :)

How are you like it?
Son’s bike. Rides pretty well, climbs pretty well, handles pretty well. The stock tune on the shock is garbage, way to many volume spacers and the dampening is heavily digressive. Going to send the shock to Avalanche or throw a DVO Topaz on it. It has 15mm more travel than my Banshee Prime, but with the stock shock is not as plush. I think it is a well designed frame, abet a bit porky, let down by shock tuning.

The one concern I had was it was going to feel really lethargic with the stock head angle. This has been a non issue. I have experienced no issues with it wandering on climbs or it feeling lethargic at low speeds. Also no trouble keeping traction on the front (I am old and don’t stay as far over the front as a lot of younger riders). The geometry feels spot on to me and well balanced.
