 The Ransom is one of those bikes that I have not heard a single bad thing about, but would never, ever buy. I know it's light, I know it's fast, but it just doesn't excite me at all. Doesn't help that there's a huge wave of middle aged dudes in my area that just scream about how great it is all the time.

 Scott would sell twice the bikes if they didn't do the stupid Twinloc system, it crowds the cockpit and their is no way to get a bike without their weird suspension. They need to sell with regular stock Fox or Rockshox suspension.

 I personally think it looks sic. And i think we can safely dispel the notion, that SR doesn't make good stuff. Any thing above the xcr is legit kit, especially for the prices. And this is coming from a dude who went with Manitou...

 @willdavidson9595: Yup, that's a big part of it for me. I can't imagine racing an enduro in the Rockies on a shock without an oil reservoir. Plus, Rockshox, Fox, Push, etc just make better suspension.

 Hahah I know what middle aged bros you're talking about #NickSucks

 The Ransom doesn't come with Suntour suspension.

Though I may have thought otherwise before building a Ransom, having the remote on the rear shock has been awesome, a game changer and I'd never get rid of it.

But I didn't want it connected to the fork, so disconnected it and swapped the regular Fit4 top cap.

Even though the Grip2 is a "superior" damper, it's actually quite nice to flip the lever on the Fit4 damper when its helpful.

Is it a worthy trade-off? Soon I'll swap in the Grip 2 cartridge and decide what's the better benefit - either plush, controlled and adjustable, or a really good fork with being able to flip a lever for some extra support.

 If #Nicksucks is in your vocab....I know what area you're in!

 @DirtGuru2: I couldn't agree more about the remote. I use it on my Ransom all the time and yes it has a bit more cockpit clutter but I think worth it. Grip 2 all the way though.

 I won a Auron 35 PCS RC2 a few. years ago and fell in love with it on my trail bike. I liked it so much I went with a Tri-Air for my rear shock. Suntour's higher end stuff really is good and even their midrange stuff is great for the price once you get above the XCR.

 Got the Auron fork and TriAir shock on my Meta TR 29. Loving it so far.

 Were people still questioning Suntour? Do people actually follow events like WC DH racing (with the UR Polygon team) and the Red Bull Rampage (with Kurt Sorge taking the win a few times)? You'd say they're right up there.

 @vinay: People not in the know do. It's kind of the same vibe as Diamondback has. They sell a lot of low end bikes and even some in big box stores, but they are either unaware or just don't believe that there high end stuff can be good. The Sync'r, Mission, Catch and Release are all great bikes from DB, just like SR Suntour has great high end stuff.

 Every Scott bike I've demo'd was really sweet. Very light and felt extremely fast. Twin lock was cool but I don't think it's worth sacrificing shock and fork performance for anything beyond their cross country bikes. The biggest reason I haven't seriously considered buying a Scott is because I don't want to have to replace the shock and fork right off the showroom floor. With that said, the Scott Gambler is by far my favorite downhill bike and what I'd buy if I lived closer to a bike park.

 how come no one does Scott reviews? is there a reason that they don't ship out reviewer bikes? I'd like a genius 900 because I had an LT40 way back but are the new bikes any good?
