I voted GT. But I also want to toss in Kona!

I really have a weak spot for old school manufacturers! :thumbup:

...well I have two scott bikes (including the one I bought for my wife) and have no complaints. Both were good value (bought well below retail) and have performed well ever since.

In fact my g-zero pro was easily the lightest, best specced new bike I could get for the money.

Geometry ugly? If you say so.
Looks - if it were all about looks I'd be riding a De Kerf.

Other - Titus Racer X

Perfect balance between a great XC race bike without being to fragile to take some abuse. Customer service is second to none!!

I vote others - NICOLAI !!! For somewhat unique looks & best warranty.

I also like Giant since one of my best (hardtail) bike is an XTC SE1 :D

kona kick asssss!!!

scott geometry is ugly. It´s really ugly

Gt wins at strength. A zaskar frame is unbeatable at stiffness and strength. Try to break a gt triple triangle frame. Just impossible.

Kona wins at lightness price and geometry. Just think on the kona kula primo frame.

Ellsworth, the best materials, manufacturing methods and finishing. Add to this a great handling package, and the ability to build a FS bike wih 100mm travel each end around 8kg.
