Hey Pinkbike, Up for sale is my top-of-the-line 2011 Trek Scratch Air 9! This is the one bike to rule them all. With a dropper post, adjustable geometry, 170 mm of rear travel, and a Fox Talas fork that can be adjusted between 120-160 mm, this bike can descend like a champ, and it climbs better than bikes with 40 mm less travel. Keep up with your XC friends on Saturday and rip up Stevens Pass on Sunday on the same bike! Check out Pinkbike's review: http://www.pinkbike.com/news/trek-scratch-air-9-2011.html This bike has top-shelf components (see below). I upgraded the brakes from the stock Avids to Shimano XTs, which rounded out the build to be full XT (except for the Raceface cranks). The DT Swiss wheels on this bike are almost worth the price by themselves: super light, super strong, and built to last. I'm selling because I finally had to admit after riding for 2 years that the bike is too small for me (I'm 6'-3"). Probably would be best for someone around 6'-0". I bought it in nearly new condition in summer 2014, and I just got an XL frame bike to replace this one. I know it'll be a great bike for the next rider. Specs: Size: Large (19.5") Frame: Trek Alpha Red aluminum with Full Floater, adjustable geometry (66 or 66.5 degree headtube angle), and Active Braking Pivot (ABP) design Fork: Fox 36 Talas FIT RLC, 120-160 mm Rear shock: Fox Float RP23 trail tuned, 170 mm wheel travel Wheels: DT Swiss E2000 (tubeless compatible, not currently running tubeless though) Front and rear tires: Bontrager XR4 Expert, 26 x 2.35 Brakes: Shimano XT Front derailleur: Shimano XT Rear derailleur: Shimano XT Cranks: Race Face Atlas, 36/24 w/bash guard Cassette: Shimano XT (M77110) 11-36, 10 speed Seatpost: Crank Bros. Joplin 4R dropper post Saddle: Bontrager Evoke 4 with titanium rails Handlebars: Bontrager Rhythm Pro Stem: Bontrager Rhythm Headset: Cane Creek Frustum SE Light Edition, E2 Pedals: NOT INCLUDED I'm willing to consider reasonable offers--the bike has been well taken care of, but it has minor wear that you'd expect from 2 years of riding (including some scratches from my bike rack). Local delivery Thanks for looking!
