We’ve still got a small amount of content we gathered from interbike to show you all still so stay tuned for a few more updates. Check inside for some details on the 2014 Scott Sports range as well as some new offerings from Feedback Sports.
Scott had a big display of all of their 2014 items on display for all to see. The Gamber 10 takes cues from the Scott-Sports World Cup team where riders like Brendan Fairclough and others have had some success on-board this bike. Their World Cup team has been seen experimeting with a 27.5″ Gambler and it’ll be interesting to see how this develops. The 2014 Gambler is also available in a Gambler 20 and Gambler 30 trim package.

Some of the highlights include
3 Sizes (S M L)
Floating link suspension
Adjustable Geometry / Zee Calipers
The Gambler 10 isn’t the lightest bike out there but seems poised well to last. They’ve integrated a down tube protector as well as integrated fork bumpers.

The Scott Genius range of bikes have received more attention and plenty of riders were curious to try it out during the Outdoor Demo. Available in a 900 series (29″ wheels) or 700 series (27.5″ wheels), the Genius range has a wide variety of options available.

One of the more interesting options is the Genius LT 700 tuned offering which is aimed at the Enduro rider with 170mm of front and rear wheel travel. It has internal cable routing, adjustable geometry, and more.
Genius LT 700 Tuned
The Tuned version boasts a super light HMX Carbon Fiber Frame. With a custom FOX Nude shock with Boost Valve, a custom 170mm FOX 34 fork, our Patented TwinLoc technology, in combination with traction control, allowing for three travel/geometry settings and SRAM XO1, this bike is ready to tame all mountains.
The TwinLoc system allows for a handlebar mounted lever that adjusts both the front and rear suspension simultaneously through three available modes (Lockout, Traction, Open). I took one of their bikes out for a spin and was impressed by how handy this lever can be to quickly adjust the ride characteristics.
Feedback is probably best known for their bike repair stands, but they’ve got a lot of other products that are equally appealing to cyclists. Continuing with the Fat Bike theme, they’ve got a new stand to hold your Fat Bike. They also make a version for normal sized wheels (26 / 27.5 / 29) too that works quite well if you’re looking for a clean way to store a bike.
Their truing stand has seen some revisions and it’s also possible to mount this onto their bike stands too for a very nice portable truing stand solution. They’ve updated the stand to include a soft tip for use on carbon wheels as well as integrating a dial to help true disc brake rotors as well. Various adapters are available to fit all wheel sizes.

Moving into the bike-storage category they also have the new Velo Column to store bikes from the floor to ceiling.
The Velo Hinge system allows bikes to be stored vertically on a wall but can also hinge and fold to the side more once a bike is installed.
