@angelofverdun: I got it, since people call free ride bikes "downduro's" we can call trail bikes "upduro's"...

@smuggly: you can race your tricycle in an enduro, doesn't make it an enduro bike. Not sayin it's not a very capable trail bike able to hit above it's weight class due to some great geometry. And for sure "horses for courses". There will be some races the scout might be the better tool for the job over a patrol or sentinel.

Scout is not, nor has ever been considered an enduro bike...

@utley06: agree, but having the choice in one frame set is awesome...

First Ride: Marin Alpine Trail
But I wonder why go that route on entry level bikes? There are for sure riders that prefer the breaking mannerisms of a SP, often when combined with other traits of a bike set up for DH/DS. But for your average trail rider, especially when looking at entry level/lower cost riding options I'd think the chain stay pivot would be the way to go. I know I feather/drag my brakes more than I should!! But I've rode with people who ride the brakes the entire time a bike is under gravity's influence! :)

@ZappBrannigan: I disagree, the pivot on the chainstay or seatstay shouldn't make one 4 bar more poppy than another. It's the overall kinematics and and the damper quality/set up. A person should be able to make either linkage set up ride the same. The chainstay pivot is just going to let the suspension continue working during breaking.

With the FSR patent expired I don't understand why anyone would make a bike like this anymore...??? If there's gonna be a pivot back there anyway it might as well be on the chain stay where it can do more good.

@pedalhound: They make 200mm dropper posts, surely you can ride most frames with a dropper than long...
