    Scott Genius

    I'm trying to find information on the pressures recommended and service required for my sons Scott genius. We bought is used and unfortunately the owner didn't have the manuals that should have come with the Bike. I've tried the Scott website but been unable to find anything about the suspension. I'm hoping someone out there knows where to look.
    The suspension looks complex and we're not planning to do repairs ourselves, I hope our LBS will have the know how.
    Many thanks for any help offered.

    Thanks

    Many thanks, It is a 07 bike and I found what I was looking for under the shock manuals. It's a really nice bike and I'm also envious as I'm riding around on my 10 year old Raleigh Spirit! My son is 15 and around 6'-1" and just loves to race. I'm not sure it's the best bike for this but it came at a relly good price and he relly loves it.

    ^ Out of interest, are you in the USA francoventree?

    I was under the impression that Scott is the only American bike company that can't sell their bikes in the States??

    You can buy Scotts in the States. One of my LBS's carries them.

    Oh... trademark ban must've been lifted?

    Can't remember where I read the article... something about a branding issue of some sort, which is why early on, Scott bikes were only available in Europe and other countries.

    I could've been mixed up... all good then.
