You don't have to appreciate the "bike" but to not appreciate the frame is ignorant.

That frame is probably from 2006, the scarab was a completely steel constructed high pivot frame that was ahead and behind the times.

hugely reliable, beautifully made, and well priced. It was a rock eater, sadly it came around at a time where dual link suspension (VPP, DW, ect) was seen as a god send and its pivot placement was overlooked by many, as well as that was when geometry started to vastly change and within a couple years this frame was obsolete, doesn't take away from the fact that it was one of the underdog gems of our industry.

Eh, we'd honestly prefer non-stock bikes unless they're just hitting the market. Most of us appreciate the stock photos for the first weeks or so of it coming up, but after that we expect custom builds.

It's not that it's a nice bike or not, it undebatably is, we've just seen it before.

not trying to be a dick here, but a sexy bike is a sexy bike, old, new, stock or custom ..Salute
