I'm not sure these really belong here, they ain't retro, but i like to look at other peoples bikes, and, well, I'm a bit bored.

These are the bikes that get thrashed throughout the winter, and I don't mind wearing bits out/damaging them. Saving the Retros for best :)

The Scott Scale 920 is carbon, 1x12 GX, Mainly as it came, but now has Ules grips, a flite and Hope Race brakes. It's just had a new set of tyres that I haven't tried yet. Weighs about 24lb and goes like stink. I need to add more lightness.

The Orange segment was their second 29er (2014/15) and has 110mm travel (120mm pikes at the front). Lots of Hope parts, Renthal bars & stem, Reverb Dropper (!) Weighs well over 30lb, but rides really nicely and doesn't feel heavy at all.

So, I open them up to your critique!

Nowt wrong with that Segment. 1x a good idea. I'd have some different components on if it was mine but that's down to personal choice.

The colour palette is somewhat different to your typical bikes...

I'd go for the new Hope cranks with Hope BB F20 pedals. I was planning that for my Five before I had to give it up. Floating Hope rotors purely for bling factor. Oval chainring, Hope or Absolute Black. Thomson dropper. Biggest improvement I made to mine (2nd hand) over the reluctant Reverb it came with. With Wolftooth ReMote. And if I was really pushing the boat out on eBay - Fox forks & shock.
