    funny we are mentioning Roscoe’s, my next bike I was to work on was a Roscoe 6 . It sat in the shadows of my Fuel.

    Well I am buying the 7 for the frame color. Trek does not have frame sets in stock till April. But mainly the difference is forks a Fox 36, better drivetrain and brakes on the 9. It just depend a on what you want. Mine would be a Roscoe 15 if they made it, from the parts I already have.

    Roscoe 9 has superior value. The Roscoe 7 has center lock rotors and a 32mm stanchion fork, with are dealbreakers for me. Also the brakes are crap. Also a 31.8mm handlebar/stem combo is not as suitable for a big beefy burrito like me. Hey @Danmtchl , any chance I could get your shop to swap parts from a 9 frame to a Miami Green frame for the price of a 9?

    How about $2,500 plus tax and cost of labor..? Just throwing it out there in case your shop has the bandwidth to flip the leftovers.

    Hey @buggravy , have you had a chance to ride your Nimble 9?

    No, it was a pre-order. Bikes don't arrive until April.

    i was thinking of getting hardtail like the roscoe... Im not jumping much anymore, nor doing any real rock gardens so might as well get a bike that climbs better...but still flick around the back tire..

    Hint: Hardtails don't climb better. Unless the trail, path or road is smooth.

    But they are often used as jump bikes - so I think your rationale falls flat on both counts! o_O :whistling: :D

    EDIT: Ohhh I just now (12 hours later) noticed it's a Revel! Is it yours or a stock photo?

    Hey Bug, Did you compare the Nimble 9 with Yelli Screamy when you selected the Nimble 9? If so, I'd like to pick your brain.

    Not really, or at least not when I was ordering. I looked at the YS when it came out a year or two ago, but almost immediately wrote it off because of aluminum and no sliding drop outs. I just wish the N9 had the hta of the Yelli Screamy.

    I see. I think if you have a 150mm fork on the N9, the static HTAs are about the same. For me, I’m wondering if the stiffer frame of the aluminum YS is the way to go. I hear ya about the sliding dropouts.
