my eyes hurt.
(Aug 31, 2018 at 8:00)
because a lot of dirt came into my eyes
(Aug 31, 2018 at 9:19)
Scott's tech video on PB's other Ransom article today is much better, and features steadier, sustained shots of downhill riding. Personally I feel Scott should have just went w/ that video alone.
(Aug 31, 2018 at 13:16)
Sounds like old command and conquer trailer.
(Aug 31, 2018 at 5:53)
Now I can wear my Scott helmet with my Scott enduro goggles and my Scott jersey with my Scott shorts, Scott chamois, Scott kneepads, Scott socks and Scott shoes. I'll slowly don my Scott gloves and grasp the Scott grips attached to the Scott handlebar of my Scott bicycle. Before I ride, I'll have fueled well with Scott breakfast cereal eaten from a Scott bowl. Also, this bike needs more cables in the cockpit area.
(Aug 31, 2018 at 6:18)
well at least it seems you wont need a scott stem!
(Aug 31, 2018 at 6:18)
Alright Scott calm down.
(Aug 31, 2018 at 6:58)
You should also rename to Scotty and move to Scottland... Wait a minute...
(Aug 31, 2018 at 7:53)
silly freerider.. "if their not wearing skinny jeans, a cotton t-shirt and ratty old vans then I ain't watching."
(Sep 3, 2018 at 10:52)
Do you also own a Specialized because you fit the bill...
(Aug 31, 2018 at 5:45)
Someone get this guy a fucking gimble
(Aug 31, 2018 at 7:39)
Or at least tell him to stand still and stop running up the trail...I couldn't even watch the whole thing.
(Aug 31, 2018 at 7:55)
Yeah! We want more slow mo cable cams, they're so original and refreshing!
(Sep 3, 2018 at 23:12)
If you just grab your screen and shake it in sync, it isn't too hard to look at.
That is, you're not watching this at work, are you?
(Aug 31, 2018 at 7:25)
A hardcore enduro race bike filmed on a flat flow trail...hmmmm....
(Aug 31, 2018 at 10:38)
I never understood why so many of these videos barely ever feature nasty rock gardens and huge drops. Ya know, the kind of stuff these bikes were built for...
(Sep 1, 2018 at 1:18)
: Yeah, the EWS is filled with huge drops....
(Sep 2, 2018 at 0:24)
Yeah... I hate to be that guy... but I'm pretty sure I could've ridden that on my xc hardtail... no 170mm required
(Sep 2, 2018 at 1:25)
.... again - Scott did the best marketing action by giving privateer Adam his bike...
(Aug 31, 2018 at 5:14)
well, that video was super confusing
(Aug 31, 2018 at 12:50)
I have no doubts this bike rips, but was Bend really the best place to showcase a long travel 29-er enduro bike???
(Aug 31, 2018 at 11:54)
Hands down to these two riders, particularly the one in the front. He is definitely a daredevil. The thru-axle cam lever was put facing to the front horizontally on his bike(noticeable first 20s seconds).
(Aug 31, 2018 at 7:28)
(Aug 31, 2018 at 8:52)
Did those riders find the Blair Witch after they filmed that video?
(Sep 1, 2018 at 22:34)
Easiest way to get your hands on one off these, just walk into a bank with a gun. Tell everyone to hit the deck, no one leaves until I talk to a negotiator. Then just tell the coppaz that you demand a Ransom. A MF Scott Ransom. easy peezy
(Aug 31, 2018 at 5:42)
Shouldn't the title be 'Re - introducing the Ransom'? I mean I've had one since sometime in 2010...
What a lame bike it has become as it looks like every other Horst/4 bar bike on the market. At least the original faux bar tried to style itself differently from the rest.
(Aug 31, 2018 at 8:51)
Next time turn you optical stabilization on... Cant believe what I just saw. Excuse me, im going to puke...
(Aug 31, 2018 at 18:40)
Agree, glad that is over with....
(Aug 31, 2018 at 6:13)
Looks like my first time filming a ride...at first I thought it was an advert for wheels..
(Aug 31, 2018 at 7:29)
Or trees. Or dust.
(Aug 31, 2018 at 7:08)
I had the previous generation genius LT and it was by far the worst all mountain bike I ever had. Sorry Scott, you lost me there.
(Aug 31, 2018 at 20:07)
170mm to shred flow trails with no tech? Seems like a little much, no?
(Aug 31, 2018 at 5:24)
well, if their genius wasn't enough for ENDURO pro racing, this should fit perfectly i think. Look's amazing as well
(Sep 1, 2018 at 19:02)
youve heard "looks like a session.. but im thinking it looks more like a kona Operator.... or new process? anywho LOOKS LIKE A KONA
(Aug 31, 2018 at 23:58)
I’ve got a headache after that, unsure if it’s from the music or camera footage from the guy on the cross trainer
(Aug 31, 2018 at 15:03)
Bad ad choice. Had to turn it off. Bike looks good though
(Aug 31, 2018 at 10:16)
When did Paul Greengrass start directing edits?
(Aug 31, 2018 at 8:34)
Looks like it was filmed in Bend.
(Aug 31, 2018 at 6:56)
Was that Needles and Brendog...that thing looks fast as F*ck!
(Aug 31, 2018 at 9:17)
Needles and Jameson!
(Aug 31, 2018 at 9:45)
But don't all bikes look fast(or "fast as F*ck!) when pros are riding them in a video?
(Sep 1, 2018 at 7:19)
(Sep 2, 2018 at 9:48)
No good for me I can't pedal that fast
(Sep 1, 2018 at 2:48)
What a bullshit music in this video
I need more Yeti cycles vidz
(Sep 1, 2018 at 4:05)
Looks like Scott axed the voltage.
(Aug 31, 2018 at 13:40)
scott to be a joke?
(Aug 31, 2018 at 15:15)
(Aug 31, 2018 at 5:29)
loved my genius, but where are the ISCG05 tabs?
(Aug 31, 2018 at 15:52)
Marilyn Manson low key rides a Scott
(Aug 31, 2018 at 5:00)
looks like a genius. Wait, it's a genius and they just found a new name. Impressed ...
(Aug 31, 2018 at 5:08)
It's really just a longer travel beefed up frame. Whereas the original Ransom was different than the Genius years ago.
My thoughts are they should have called it the Genius LT 2019...but I think for advertisement and PR sake they wanted to bring more excitement and cash in on their old "Ransom" nick name to help sell.
Either way, it's still a BAD ASS bike with a FULL 170mm travel both front and rear and still weighing at a respectable 29lbs (without pedals) is super impressive to say the least.
The Genius platform has already proven to be the best Genius to date so this just ups the ante for those who ride Enduro and park.
(Aug 31, 2018 at 5:34)
(Aug 31, 2018 at 5:46)
But do it climb?
(Aug 31, 2018 at 6:03)
or will it blend?
(Aug 31, 2018 at 6:56)
(Aug 31, 2018 at 7:30)
Does it have an app?
(Aug 31, 2018 at 22:10)
A Kings' Ransom
(Aug 31, 2018 at 20:06)
That's Bend for sure.
(Sep 2, 2018 at 13:48)
I had to throw up...
(Aug 31, 2018 at 14:15)
looks like a Process
(Aug 31, 2018 at 16:18)
: And every other Horst link/4 bar bike since the '90s...
