I think your best bet is to contact a Scott dealer or Scott directly. Have you made a wanted ad in the buy and sell? That's a good start.

Ive made an ad, the only views its gotten are from me looking to see how many people have viewed it . LOL. I'll build up my bike and have a look at the headangle compared to other bikes and ill go from there.

I have a 29/27.5 setup in my 2018 Gambler and and lower headset from a Voltage, those external big ones, that adds about 15mm and which is stuck.
My solution was to run it in the High setting and it feels awesome!

That's interesting considering the previous gen gambler is 26/27.5. how does it ride with a 29 front? Any pics?

XC riding on a single speed DH rig
It rides like some sort of tank over everything in its path. I made the jump directly from 26 wheels so I am very happy about the rolling capacity of the beast. Also being 194cm or 6`4" helps with managing the larger wheel.
Regarding the geometry, as previously stated I ran it in the high setting as it feels more balanced. I will try to get the lower headset out and install a flush one which will maybe allow me to run it in low too.
PS: it's also configured as a single speed as I was using only one cog about 90% of the time

Hey guys after enquiring about 2018 linkage for 2016 Gambler the guys at Westbrooke Cycles in the UK said Scott recommended not to do it as they're designed differently even though they look the same. Any thoughts or feedback from others who have done it? Any issues at all?

Thanks in advance

I am pretty sure Niko Vink was doing exactly that... but I doubt he’s concerned with warranty issues.

Has any one got or had any issues with rear wheel judder under braking, on the aluminium 920 or the like, at all? There does seem to be some flex in the brake adaptor when the brake is held on and rocked back and forth. Unless it is a faulty rotor.

If you are using shimano it could either be a loose rotor or the pads moving in the caliper. Shimano brake pads always have a little bit of movement inside the caliper. It is nothing to worry about if that's what it is.

Anyone here have experience with linear vs. progressive shock setup for the 2020 Tuned?

I’ve had it in progressive since I got it but I’m looking for a little more supportive feeling in the top of the stroke, especially when pumping and jumping.

Would the linear setting help with that?

Watch Brendogs latest video. The thumbnail says bike porn on it and it has all the settings explained and what he runs.

Thanks man, just watched that.

So Brendog says he runs it in linear pretty much all the time because the bike is already pretty progressive. Wonder if that means linear is stiffer / more supportive in the top of the stroke, considering he uses it for freeride.

What he is saying is that the bike already Ramps up naturally towards the end of the stroke so it is very sensitive under small hits, considering Brendog races world cups and produces decent results I'd say he has played around with the bike and likes it that way for racing and free ride.
