I am selling my Scott Genius 940. I bought the bike in Bend OR in the summer of 2017 (new). It has been ridden semi regularly for a little over a year (although starting in June it hasn't seen as much action) and is in good condition. The Scott Genius 940 is a WONDERFUL trail bike with its 140/130mm of travel, Scott Twin Lock suspension locks, and 29" wheels. It is the bike for anyone looking to expand the scope of what they can ride. I have not put a dropper on the bike, and I have not converted it to a 1x10/1x11 drivetrain. The Shimono rear derailleur does not have a clutch on it, so the 1x conversion will be a little more involved. The bike is routed for an internal dropper and there is even a little room left on the bars for one! The wheel set I have on there is a dream!!! I know some complain about Chris King Hubs being loud, but they are endlessly rebuild-able and (though I've never tried) I am told they're easy to open up and work on. The rims on the bike are currently set up tubeless and I have been running them at 20psi with ZERO burps and no problems to speak of. I swapped the grips because I did't like the rubber lock-ons it came with so it now packs some ESI silicone ones. I think that silicone wears faster, but these have very little wear on them and replace for $20 or less. Stock spec of the bike: Fox Performance Shocks (140/130mm) Shimono XT drivetrain (2x10) Shimono SLX brakes (both front and rear disc are new as of early July 2018) UPGRADES: The wheel set now runs on Chris King ISO Hubs and Mavic rims (currently set up tubeless) The original grips have also been replaced with some nice ESI silicone ones. Tire rubber has been upgraded to tubeless front and rear Front disc is now a Shimano ice tech rotor Others stuff: The bike is probably getting close to needing its 100 hour suspension service. I have replaced some of the cables and housing Currently has an almost new chain (Late July, maybe 5 rides on it) Both disc rotors are new as of mid May 2018
