You won’t find an OEM build like this from SCOTT!
This custom built XL Genius 700 Plus Tuned with 29″ wheels has been in use since 2016. . Brand new chainstays and seatstays have been installed, as well as, new front and rear Maxxis DHF and Aggressor tires. Even though I chose to run 29″ Industry Nine Enduro wheels, this 700 Plus frame has Boost 148×110 hub spacing with enough tire clearance for either 27.5+ or 29″ wheels.
Upgraded from stock suspension, there’s a piggy-back reservoir FOX Glide X rear shock and FOX 150mm 36 up front. Raceface carbon bars and a mechanical Turbine dropper paired with their 1X remote.
From trail riding to enduro racing, this 150/130mm shuttle bike has performed admirably. The three position platform on the Glide X allows for efficient enough pedaling. Then again, in case you are searching for maximum pedaling performance, this isn’t your bike. As a trail bike, it pedals well enough for any long ride (if you don’t mind reaching down to flip a switch once or twice all through a ride) – especially if your home trails are either up or down.
But what it lacks when climbing, it makes up for descending. This build will allow you to enjoy most lift service riding and days at the bike park. It’s a solid enduro race build. Stiff, predictable and confident, that allows you to allow you focus on the line ahead.

The head angle on this bike is roughly 1 degree slacker after increasing the shuttle 10mm. In the low setting that’s a sweet spot 66.5 degrees. The increased length of the fork will also slacken the seat tube angle quite. The 29″ wheels raises the BB quite.
