7.5/10 for the scott

9/10 for the orange. repaint it black

I like the white on the orange, I think the black ones look really long and tall. Nice one that is , I'll give you an 8 buddy

Oh and go for the silver- it's a wicked colour (not that I'm biased in any way)

Was thinking of something a little more extravagent , really like the deep purple but saw a pink one a while back and it was actually really smart

yeah aluminum 2
that's one of my main choices, since I already have a 30.9 dropper post, I'd probably upgrade brakes, and get some nice light wheels, doesn't need much else. Other option is to spend $5k on the Advanced 1, which needs nothing, so 2x the $$ to save a couple of pounds...

Really well though out build - solid 9 , what's the brakes like?? And if you are wandering how I'd score it a 10, it would be the xx1 cassette and destickered rims but that's just me being a tool lol

Thanks for the rating... The Hayes primes are great... Reach adj and pad contact adj... A little heavy but good power and modulation

Rim graphics are painted on and x01 cassette saved me $50 over xx1 Smile

The SC above gets an 8/10, thats high for me for santa cruz. For some reason that one just looks alot better. Maybe its the lighting.

Love it but I need a better pic mate, please pop one up. Are you running a reverb?

I think a ti spring and green or black or white even pedals would make it from me-9 at the mo with that pic and congrats on being the first 650b dh bike on here

And don't forget - rate the bike above bro
