Jay WIlliamson - Blue Spring
Is that a trail, or a field? ouch, Oh Burn! And to the dude up a few posts... that ain't All- Mountain riding. That's lame riding in a local metro field. Dams brutal.. And very messy editing. Just plain messy.

Bike Check: Mark Weir's Carbon Jekyll
Cool bike. looks like he is sporting the Shimano Shadow Plus rear deraileur. cool. XTR cranks. But 180mm for Enduro racing?? Wow man, and a 1x10. Imagine the climbs? Tough sledding, but then again, he's a pro. I ride a Scott Genius which is a similar bike. I've tried the Jekyl. Nice ride too for sure. But I like the Genius Twinlock controls way better as they control the rear suspension 100% better than the Jekyl/fox shock. I too couldn't get it to work properly. Kind of a messy setup overall. Scott Genius >>>>> Jekyl. No doubt. Oh burn!

Stacy Glaser gets RED - Video
Looks like it is a focus issue for sure. I am a colorist working with Autodesk Lustre. I see a tonne of red Footage and a lot of it is out of focus. If they truly did shoot 4K R3D data, then they were most likely monitoring this via a Video SDI monitor - which is softer and more forgiving regarding quality and especially focus. Then you take the 4K data and transcode it to whatever format you need (.dpx or Quicktime for example). What you were monitoring is nothing like what the 4K will show you as it has so much detail and is easy to be out of focus 1 or 2%. So the focus issue added together with the web compression - RED looks soft. Happens all the time... "But i swear i was in focus"!!!???!!! Until you look at the RAW data you captured. Out of focus. The ARRI Alexa is the best camera IMO!! Blows the Red Epic and scarlett away! RED is way too grainy by default. The only cool thing about RED is their Oakley 3D Stereoscopic glasses. they are cool and I wear them to every movie. Real-D compatible. Now get on yer bikes and ride!!

Scott Genius LT 10 Review
Hi Vonplatz, I actually had the Enduro. Sold it to buy my Scott Genius. The genius, in my opinion, is a better bike. On the trails, it is a lot easier to handle and offers more travel - or so it feels at least. That's my 2cents. The twinlock is awesome. You will love it! The Equalizer is, again in my opinion, better than the Fox R with Pro Pedal or the the S Brain crap. I hated mine... but that's just me. Sold it. moved on... OH, and my Scott is now the coolest kid on the block now that they signed The Coastal crew and a few other, shall I say Top-O-the-line riders!!!!! ya baby. Scott is the brand to beat.

Scott Genius LT 10 Review
For me, being able to fly through technical trail, then down a steep run with switchback and some jumps, then back up the other side - all without having to "lean down and flick a pro pedal switch" is brilliant!! If you can't figure out how to flick a twinlock lever, which is exactly the same as switching gears, then you my friend should not be riding bikes. You control your bikes travel during the run. Nuff said? sweeeet. All the fubub above is a waste of electricity. If you want more details on this review, fire away. I have one - although not the LT. Same basic bike though, minus one inch travel. So to the dude who reviewed this fine machine.... "Cell phone tower"? Really?? It has two extra cables compared to 95% of bikes you see. Oh, and to the transition Bottlerocket guy/gal... yes, you may ride up, down, flat on yer rocket. But at what speed?? When I blow by you on the up and down... we'll see who's smilin'. Last point - and a tad cheesy, but true. Seldom do I ride in the woods without someone stopping me in the parking lot after and asking about the bike. Trying it, sitting on it etc etc. Immediate "wow" factor if you're into that. I know I am.

Scott Genius LT 10 Review
This bike was a tough decision for me to purchase at the time. I read everything I could find regarding the DT Swiss Equalizer shock, and about Scott in general. But I too had worries such as some of the points listed above. But man, every time I walked into the bike shop, I fell in love with the Genius. Cool bike! So... I test rode it. Loved it!! I purchased it over one year ago. Sold my Nomad for best offer. Glad to rid of the "Brain" crap. I love my Genius. It rocks any trail... up, down... fast...slow. I have never had to service the bike. Not once. I have replaced both stock Schwalbe Nobby Nics with Maxxis. Oh, and I put a Syncros AM Head set on. Custom flats for pedals. That's it. best bike I have ever owned. 6" travel with lock-out - and it works! Great for DH as well as AM Enduro rides.

Scott Genius LT 10 Review
Keeping on-topic with this clan of pee wee's is going to be tough... Last time I looked around at a race or group trail ride, I noticed most-to-all bikes sporting 4 cables. Some have five if they have a dropper post. My Scott Genius has 6, as I don't have the post option... don't need it. My Genius is the MC 40, Aluminum. Maxxis High Roller and HR II, Talas Fork, Equalizer 2 shock, DT-Swiss rims and Shimano bits, XT Deore cranks and Avid Elixir 5 brakes. I'm adding a MRP 2x chainguide.... just because.... take the big ring off.
