    Don’t really care about this new “Plus” trend (yet), nor does suspension get me all excited, but damn does this Scott look badass.

    agreed on all points. Hot looking bike, for sure. Orange is the new Black.

    Then RFG was way ahead of the Curve with the new branding logo if OITNB!

    I’m so befuddled by the new plus standard.

    I have 2.4 tires on 26″ rims that measure 2.6″ wide and 27.25″ tall… so I guess I’m pretty much running 27.5

    Going to keep riding my pre-2010 bikes until all this “innovation” madness slows down

    I don’t really get it either, but I’ll save judgement for my first test ride. I tried a 29+ briefly once, and it wasn’t my thing. Grip for days, but felt massive. These 27.5+ are definitely lighter than their 29er counter parts, but I just can’t see how they won’t feel heavy with an extra 100grams or more per tire and another 50-100grams of rim weight. I remember 2.35 Nevegals feeling slow as hell on my old 26er. How’s this gonna feel? Like I said, though, gotta try first. Till then, I have fully embraced the 29er way of life.
