2012 Scott Genius LT 30 LT30 Purchased bike new in late 2011. This has been a really fun do it all bike. I have been doing a lot more dirt jump riding since moving to Texas, and this bike has seen only a handful of rides since I moved here. If you are not familiar with the bike, it is a very versatile 26" all-mountain bike (or enduro if you prefer). The twinloc lever on the bars controls the rear shock and front fork. There are three different travel settings fully open 185mm travel/7.2inch, 110mm travel/4.3inch, or full lockout (no travel). I will say that when the rear is locked out it truly becomes a hardtail, which is very nice for climbing or flat fire road sections. Can also use hand to adjust down the travel on the front fork. This is very handy for climbing as it drops the stance of the bike a bit. Specs: Genius LT Alloy 6061, Hydroformed custom butted, tapered HT, IDS SL 12x142mm Dropout Rear Shock Scott Equalizer 3, Fork Rock Shox Lyrik RLR, Scott Custom, Air, Fork Travel 180- 140mm Headset Syncros AM Comp Tapered 1.5“ - 1 1/8“, semi Handlebar Gravity Riser Bar Stem Scott AM, 4 bolt, 6° angle Grips Oury Lock ON Brakes Shimano Deore Brake Levers Shimano Deore Shifters Sram X-9 Trigger, adjustable clamp, with Front Derailleur Shimano SLX, FD-M660-10E, DM Rear Derailleur Sram X9 long cage, 30 Speed ISCG Tabs ISCG05 Chainguide aftermarket installed chainguide for 3x crankset Cranks Shimano XT, FC-M780, Hollowtech 2, Chainrings 42Ax32Ax24A T Bottom Bracket Shimano Cartridge, shell 73mm&E DM Pedals Not including the pedals pictured. Chain Sram PC 1071 Hollow Pin Cassette Sram PG 1050, 11-36 T Rims Sun Ringle Charger Pro tubeless Hubs Charger Pro 20mm thru axle Spokes Tires Micheline Wild Grip'r Advanced Tubeless Saddle Scott AM Seatpost 2014 UNO 31.6 clamp The big upgrade on this bike is the Charger Pro wheelset. These have been indestructible and light. Can sell two brand new Michelin Wild Grip'r Advanced tires with the bike if purchaser is interested. The chain retention device works great with the 3x10, haven't dropped a chain since installed. Brand new bottom bracket installed late July 2015, only has a test ride on it. While the hollowtech crank was off I snapped a picture of the chainrings. The two smallest chainrings were replaced summer 2014 and only have a handful of rides. Bike has its fair share of wear marks. The mark on the front fork is from the Thule rack I used to carry it. The only bikes I would be interested in trading for: Transition Double Transition Bottle Rocket Black Market Killswitch Trek Ticket S Specialized P-Slope NS Soda Slope Transition Transam 27.5" Chromag Stylus Marin Rocky Ridge 27.5" Santa Cruz Chameleon NS Eccentric Diamondback Sync'r 27.5" See a review of the 2011 version of this bike here: http://www.vitalmtb.com/product/feature/Tested-Scott-Genius-LT-30,35

Ask Pinkbike: Chain Troubles, Road Gaps and Rear Shock Upgrades
As for gaps, if I can spit that far, or if I could just run really fast on foot and jump the distance, then I definitely go for it. If it's so big that you would HAVE to be on a bicycle or moto to have speed then I usually take a step back and reconsider.

Confessions of Sam Pilgrim
Still a boss on my book. Even more respect to see that he isn't just hard charging, being able to say no when you're head isn't right is important.

Video: Far and Wide in Austin, Texas
Nice video, but really only scratches the surface of what is here.

Time to Google how much an airstream costs . . . and a Tundra for that matter.
