True... and the Taurine is stiffer than the Scott but the Lefty is worlds stiffer than the Rock Shox. And the lifetime warranty is nice to have, carbon or not. :thumbsup:rek2 said:The feather in the cap of the Scale is its weight. And yes, frame alone, it's lighter than a Taurine. However, as an assembled bicycle; compare a Taurine + Lefty SL + XC3 integrated stem/steerer + SI crankset + Lefty hub (no need for a skewer, etc), with equivalent parts for the Scale, and the tables turn.
And you get a nice Lefty, compared to an SID...
(hmm.. idle thought.. as the Ultra Fatty DLR can't use the new XC3 stem/steerer, does that mean it's actually lighter to go for the longer travel Lefty instead?!)
