I agree, by your descriction of your type of riding, i would say you're better off with an upped scrap.

There's nothing at all wrong with the Scrap frame... PLUS you get the joy of having picked all your own parts and upgraded it yourself. you have to admit there's quite a bit of pride in having done that. I'd say go for it. Even if you have to have your LBS install all the parts, it's still YOUR bike built exactly the way YOU want it.
