The new Tracklock lever. One click forward puts the rear shock in "traction" mode (less travel, firmer damping), clicking forward again locks out the rear AND the front fork.

Nick Craig stood behind the Scott Addict CX cyclocross bike. He'll be riding something similar to this at the The Three Peaks in a couple of weeks.

Yes it's another cyclocross bike. Sorry. But we thought this was one of the hidden gems in the 2010 range. Sub-£1000 'cross bike that'll take mudguards. Stylish without being cliched retro. The ideal MTBer's non-MTB?

The Scott Genius 10. We reviewed a Genius earlier this year and loved it. Glad to see they've not fiddled it with it.

Scott now make a sub-£2000 Genius. The £1799 Genius 60. It's aluminium (rather than carbon) but the frame is about a pound heavier.

Super-super-short chainstays. Ultra compact gear ratio. Not actually that heavy for a jump bike (from our scientific "picking it up" test).

Sure to be a popular bike. The aluminium Scale 60. Looks very neat.

  1. i like the new voltage, wonder how it rides

  2. Had a Voltage FR10 for a couple of days in the bike park after Crankworx.. I’m sold! Definitely gave me a completely different outlook on riding the park.
    Its perhaps a little under forked for daily bike park abuse (in deep, joyride etc) so I’d probably run a 40 at 7″ up front and throw the 36 back on for shuttle days on the shore, squamish etc.

  3. id want more travel on the shore than whistler!!

  4. Fair enough, depends on your trail choice and the kind of laps you do though really.
    It’d also be a great SunPeaks/ Silverstar bike.

  5. Yeah for £1,500 the Voltage FR doesn’t look half bad. Forks don’t look that sturdy though.

    The Other Voltage looks like a fun bike too.
