I heard of the problem with the rear wheel - didn't have any of that myself. It was the bottom bracket shell on my frame.

Just heard that the frame should be in stock now - crossing my fingers for the wait is over soon :-)

I just picked up a 2012 scott scale rc model 29er frame size medium for a really good. I'm thinking now maybe to good to be true. I'm going to have to check on the rear wheel drop out issues with regards to holding the wheel in place. By chance did you the dt swiss skewer???


Yes, my bike came with a DT wheelset. Also tried Easton, Novatec and a generic steel qr. Most times I would notice shifting problems and disc brake rub so I new it was time to stop and tighten it again.
Eventually the drive side drop out ovalized. I am disgusted with my mtb frame situation.

That sounds terrible, Gregorio. I hope you'll have better luck in the future.

Did Scott improve the tire clearance on the new frame? That has always been a disadvantage of Scales IMO.

I wouldn't dare riding trails with that saddle. Those sharp edges can tear your ball sack off or give you dangerously cuts on the inside of your thighes were there is a major vein running.

Isn't it just a Speedneedle where the padding have fallen off? That shouldn't be a problem, it's not sharp around the edges, and it certainly can't cut the inside of your thighs!

Not sharp at all. The only time I've risked my dangleberries on a bike with a Speedneedle like this is crashing in to a barbed wire fence, but that is another story ;)

The padding covers the edges for a reason. That's a silly saddle for MTB-use. Just a friendly tip.
