Roscoe 7 or 8?

Hello all,


I am in a pickle between the Roscoe 7 for $1000 total price out the door or Roscoe 8 with pedals for $1200 total price out the door? These are the prices I can get at my buddies shop.

I would only need to get used to the plus size tires, and I love the volt green on the 7 BUT the 8 seems to be a better deal for only $200 more???

Am I correct?

Lol, buy a bike for the color
If you can swing the extra 200, I wouldn't blink to get the bike with the better components. The eagle parts have a huge gear range Roscoe's are lots of fun. Post up what you decided.

$200 more for an air fork, nx eagle, & shimano brakes - if you can afford it, there is no question on the better components. If he is offering this deal for a Roscoe, she what he can do for you on a Stache. You won't be sorry.

Get the new 2020 Roscoe 8. It has a 35mm fork, better brakes, & NX Eagle. The new 7 is pretty nice now too it goes to SX Eagle and an air fork, but still better spec on the 8.
