Maximize gravity's pull with Scott's Gambler 730. It gets rowdy with Scott's tough 6061-aluminum frame and a Fox VAN R shock throwing down 210mm of travel out back. With Scott’s IDS-X dropouts and adjustable bottom bracket height, this frame lets you dial the geometry for the trails or the ride you desire. The sweet frame is paired with a 203mm-travel RockShox Boxxer fork that's ready for big drops, rock gardens and anything else the course throws at you. Plus, the burly TruVativ cranks, e.13 chainguide and SRAM drivetrain let you blast out of the corners and fly at mach speed on the straights. If you do manage to get a little too loose, Avid's powerful Elixir disc brakes give you tremendous stopping power, while the stout Syncros wheels and Schwalbe tires help you truly maximize gravity's pull.
Scott's IDS X Dropout Sytem uses two positions for 15mm of quick wheelbase adjustment. A special conical interface and an eccentric head keeps the axle locked in place. Dial in your bike for the course so you can hold a tighter line.
Scott's Floating Link creates a progressive feeling suspension with nearly direct compression on the shock. The result is less shock bushing rotation and increased small bump sensitivity so the rear end sucks up everything from braking bumps to high-speed G-outs to rock garden chunder so you can concentrate on flying down the course.
Scott's Gambler provides you with the same technology that the World Cup pros have at their disposal. The Gambler has two bottom-bracket height options that are easily adjusted by flipping the lower shock bolt mount. With the bolt in the high setting you get +10mm of BB drop and a 63° head angle that makes it easy to conquer techy, tight courses. By switching the bolt to the low setting, it gives you a 62° head angle and drops the BB to 0mm which is more stable at higher speeds. Head angle can be further adjusted by raising or lowering the fork crowns on the fork stanchions.
