We're only a few hours deep into the first day of Eurobike's 2017 show and it's already obvious that there's not a whole lot to be seen here that hasn't already been shown, a few hundred e-bikes aside. Something did catch my eye at the Scott booth, however, with a sliced up Genius that was attracting quite a crowd of oglers. There's something about cutting a component in half that seems to get our attention, probably because it's a chance to get a view that we'd never otherwise see without throwing away a few thousand dollars of our own money.
Taking a close look at this cutaway Genius reveals a few things. You can see where Scott has used additional layers of carbon - look up at the head tube area, and especially around the headset bearing bore. It's also a chance to see the frame's cable routing and Di2 battery storage in action. No word on the total weight savings of cutting a frame and shock in half, but it's probably substantial... and unsafe. But it sure is neat to look at.
