Very pleased with them! Seem to do everything well. Bike accelerates quickly with them.

Anyone tried 150mm forks yet?
I'm thinking it might stop some of the pedal strikes.
Not sure if it would upset the awesome geometry and turn it into a bag of crap.

Mine is at 150mm and everything fells alright (although i didn't tried it at 140)

I don't think it would be a bad thing at all.
If anything there are more pluses than negatives by adding 10mm

Got out for my first ride on my new Scout. Tenquille Lake BC. Coming from a longer travel bike I'm simply amazed at how capable this bike is.

Nice Pic!!

I agree, I think this is the bike I always wanted but no one made it. There were bikes that were close but the geo was not quite there....

How much longer before the carbon version comes out?

Do we even know if a carbon version is coming? There where plenty of rumours about the carbon patrol, but there seems to be nothing about a carbon scout.

I do hope it happens tho!

Carbon Scout would be the only bike I would change my scout for.

Here's mine, i keep getting faster on it, i like it really squishy, i added one band to the shock, might try another but it's riding so well i don't want to upset it ! It's frikkin amazing, jumps better than any bike i've owned, i also own a Capra, the only thing that does better is go downhill.
It's Stealth Black, the Pikes have no sag markings, for some reason i've started adding blue to it
