Very nice. Who makes that frame? Looks like a big fork too. Great build.

Built a temp Satori up while waiting for my frame. Think it's safe to say this is the nicest build a Satori will ever see.

27.8lbs. Size large.

Temp bike. 27.8lbs.

Awesome. It’s be good to hear your thoughts on whether it’s worth it as a bike to buy and upgrade.

Very nice weight.

First ride done. Didn't have the pressure right in the fart can, but still ran well.

The seat tube angle is too steep. Feels short while seated, and long while standing. Bike is definitely more poppy than the last few bikes I've had, and really likes to stay light on it's toes over rough stuff. Touch that rear brake and your suspension instantly starts to feel stiff and unsettled. It's not a very great climber either, feels like your weight is too set forward to have any traction on the back wheel on that loose stuff.

I'd say I really really like it, but I don't love it. For a frame of it's price, it does ride excellently. The Rift Zone is a similar frame and price, lighter, with a rear pivot rather than a flex stay, so I'd probably go that direction if I wanted a cheap bike I felt good about putting some money into, but that said the Satori is definitely more of an aggressive feeling bike.

My $0.10.

I just sold my one bikepark weekend old set of 2.6 DHR2 3C EXO+ MT and 2.4WT DHR2 3C DD MT and went straight back to Bontrager. I find the SE5 2.6 / SE4 2.4 more predictable when cornering, larger balloon, more sidewall support than EXO, better life spand and faster rolling than the famous Maxxis mix ups. The narrower and older SE5 2.3 / SE4 2.35 got me through a whole day of Austrian (Saalbach+Leogang) rainstorms last year without ANY sort of issues.

A bit slower rolling and faster wearing option but with tons of grip could be the Kenda Hellkat PRO / Nevegal2 PRO combo. That combo has been the best dry hardpack tires i've ridden. But the Bonty SE5/SE4 wins in my book.

Just my 5 cent

I ride a lot of really loose dusty steeps here in SoCal. How does the SE4 hold up as a rear tire? I already know the SE5 will be fine. I just want a good rear tire that can handle crazy steeps and still roll well

I had Rift Zone, great bike, but unfortunately has the opposite problem on the seat tube angle than the Satori. Too slack at my pedaling height.
However they are updating the geo for 2020, probably shouldn't say too much but it looks good.

Haven't had any issues with the SE4 on the rear where I thought that I was loosing it and lacking brake traction (I dont blast my descents at WC EWS or DH speeds). I mounted my old gen SE4 2.35 rear tyre that was a bit worn with rounded off knobs and went to Saalbach Austria summer last year. Was riding both super dry and dusty trails and heavy rainstorms. The rear held up perfect (and front). I'm putting on a new SE4 2.4 next month when we hit the Austrian Alps again. I also want a bit more easy rolling rear than the SE5 offer as we also do some climbing.

Go for the SE4 and return it to your L(Bontrager)BS within 30days if you dont fancy it.

That's odd, i was looking at the picture thinking, 'jesus, they look like 180mm travel!'

My full sus has 170mm front and rear and yours look like they have a lot more travel than mine! beautiful bike man.

Hi all, so, it's the time of year for the cycle scheme to refresh again so i can update some parts on my bike. I had my heart set on a set of fox 831's for my jump bike but they came back far too expensive (because i have a straight steerer and 20mm axle still they'd have had to have been made fresh) so ill be looking at upgrading my Scott Genius instead, which im actually really excited about!

Plan is, Halo vortex wheel set, Hope tech 3 E4 brake set with braided hoses and floating disks, some nice chromag bars and a hope AM/FR stem.

My question is, i quite like blingy sort of colour schemes so im thinking either purple or blue for the brakes and floating disks and bars/stem to liven it up a bit, will also match the vortex stickers up on the rims.

My question is purple or blue bits Confused Cry

I would go orange but anodized orange won't suit the fluorescent orange.

I think blue would look best..Nice ride.
