Scott Voltage FR 710 - Review
I'm pretty sure yellow paint isn't a patent, plus the Fox coil is actually orange so...

Scott Voltage FR 710 - Review
Please, ride this bike, and then tell me its sluggish. I'd go so far as to say its more lively than my Slayer.

Scott Voltage FR 710 - Review
The new Voltage is mega fun!! I've been on my 710 for about two weeks now, and the thing just goes! Turns are awesome, and its shockingly fun through rocks cause its light enough to hop around and double everything up. Jumping is easy, it pretty much just floats off the lip with zero fuss. As for the whole 27.5 deal, I had my doubts on a bike like this, but honestly, with the mega low bb and short back end, they work perfect. Most fun bike I've ever ridden by miles!

Pinkbike Poll: Will You Consider Buying a 27.5+ Bike?
The only application where 27.5+ makes any sense is what Rocky Mountain built the Sherpa for; adventure bikes. So here's your clue industry, the market for such bikes is very small, thanks for the exposure, the guys who want to ride across India or the Baja Peninsula know what to get. We don't need this stuff spoon fed to us, we want lower prices on better products. Don't get me wrong, I think its great that the mega distance riders have a wheelsize that makes sense for them, there should be a bike for every niche need. What there shouldn't be are made up reasons why every rider NEEDS to have this stuff.

Rocky Mountain Slayer S/M

$1300 USD
2011 Rocky Mountain Slayer. Bike was built up as a freeride bike, as is evidenced by the component selection. This is a used bike!! No its not perfect, there are superficial scratches, but overall, the frame is in solid shape with clean and re-greased pivots, and no dents. -2011 CCDB, seems to be in solid shape; cleaned often, last service date is unknown -2011 Marzocchi 66 RC3 Evo. V2, scratches on riders right stanchion don't leak oil, but I know, they don't look as pretty either. Fork cycles great, all adjustments work great. Only other issue is missing air-assist cap, rebound cap is not pictured but is with the bike. -2014 Shimano Zee cranks, derailleur, and shifter (shifter may need replaced, action isn't consistent, so its not hooked up) -2014 Clarks S2 brakes (front caliper Hayes Stroker) -2014 Halo Chaos 142x12 rear wheel (dings, but hub is great, rim still spins straight) -2012 Forte Loco 110x20 front wheel (Azonic Outlaw, still rolls great) -Sunline 745mm bars (yes, you can barspin or tailwhip this bike) -Crank Brothers Iodine 50mm stem -Kore seat and post -Raceface Narrow-wide ring -Straitline DeFacto pedal (pins missing, I usually replace with M3 set screws of desired length) -Maxxis tires are at 95% tread Like I said, this is a used bike, so if you're on here looking for something pristine, look elsewhere. This bike is however extremely functional, and will do anything you want from DH to dirt jumps. It has been all over Moab, St. George, Trestle Bike Park, and everywhere in AZ. It was purpose built as a freeride bike, with old school North Shore type of stuff in mind. Bike is a 16.5" frame. I'm 6'1", so as a jumping/freeride bike, it could work for you taller dudes, but for longer rides, you may want a little more top tube. If you have any further questions, please, don't hesitate to ask. I've got it listed at $1300, but am happy to take offers. Buyer takes care of shipping. Bike is currently in Winter Park, Colorado, as I am a patroller at the Trestle Bike park during summer. Happy trails!!

What Are People Riding? - Whistler Opening Weekend
I don't know what everybody is riding that requires that they have a 26 inch wheel...I'm fine if you have a preference, and the great part about that is there are many companies willing to accommodate your desire to ride a 26 inch wheel. But seriously, what are you riding that make 26 so much better, other than DJ?

What Are People Riding? - Whistler Opening Weekend
So I really don't get the beef people have with 27.5. There are a bunch of "standards" that are total BS, but this really isn't one of 'em. I love 26 inch bikes, my Rocky Slayer is 26, my DJ is 26. I've ridden the SC Bronson and Rocky Altitude, both on 27.5. I also just picked up the new Scott Voltage which is 27.5. Guess what I've noticed? When I really pay attention, the 27.5 bikes feel like a bike with slacker angles and a little more suspension, but I'm riding a bike, and that's what counts. I am 9000% sure that if you put someone who was a die hard 26 fan on a 27.5 bike, but didn't tell them it was a 27.5 bike, they'd have just as much fun.
