    hey, thanks for your reply.
    Why would you chose Scott?

    I see the only one advantage: its fork. Rock Shox Dart 2 with Lockout 100mm travel / reb. Adj.
    What about gears and break systems? Are they OK? It's a big difference between deore/LX; XT/XT;
    Merida Matts TSF 500D has XT on board.
