Scott’s Ti 29er is just a regular ole MTB. It’s not downcountry, doesn’t claim to have forward geometry, it isn’t super slack or super short, it doesn’t fit any new geometry trend. It’s just a well-tested geometry for XC and all-around trail riding. The frame will fit a 2.6″ tire with the Rocker dropouts forward and rock-out for more clearance and a longer wheelbase, or to run as a singlespeed. The MRP Ribbon SL 120mm fork performs and looks better than its competitors (in my opinion). It’s just under 4lbs and is customizable with their new Cerakote color and decal options. Built with Shimano XT 11-speed, Knight Composites rims laced to DT-Swiss 350 hubs, PNW bars, stem, and dropper, and my used White Industries M30 cranks since stuff is so difficult to source these last couple of years, it’s just a nice simple bike with bomber parts that’ll be fun to ride as long as he likes.
Note: this is a ZS44/ZS56 head tube that I do not offer, this was a one-off since nobody sells them in steel or Ti in small amounts (that I’m aware of…).
