@sampsonite24 Sweet! Roscoe 7 stock is non existent so I just bought the 6 last night. I love the gray on yours.
I actually wanted to go and bike today, but we’re having a sunny mid-50’s day with horrible 20+ mph winds. Tomorrow should be around 50 and no wind, so I might give it a shot. I haven’t been to a trail in quite some time... like multiple years. Since 9/25/2013. I’m not sure I’ll remember what to do.
This is the photo from the last outing to Green Mountain.

@musashi66 I wish they offered that roscoe 6 color on the 7, my shop had multiple 7s in stock in both medium, medium/large, and large. And every rack was full of bikes. Must be the area we are in cause there definitely isn't a shortage lol. My big reason for getting the 7 was the air fork instead of the coil and I liked the sram drivetrain better. But congrats on your 6! Oh and just a heads up. That saddle is as hard as a church pew

@sampsonite24 There might have been one orange 7 in Denver and that was it for 200-400 miles around me.
I wanted the 7 for the fork, but I much prefer Shimano over SRAM so I’m fine with the 6. That particular fork seems to be an approximately $200 upgrade, so if/when I decide to upgrade, it would be about the same as buying the 7 in the first place, and I can maybe upgrade to something even better for $250-300.
6 does look great in this dark gray which is almost black. I ordered some red pedals like yours (RaceFace Chester) and a helmet (Giro in flat light gray which would be awesome with your bike) and some tights so I can ride in colder weather. I need a saddle bag and some tools and I have to decide on a frame pump or co2 for air. I sold everything with my old bike so I have to start from scratch on accessories. All I have left is chamois shorts.
I just went around the hood with wife and the dogs. We went along the railroad and through the green belts so I could test the bike. It felt amazing. It just rolls over everything. I might go for an easy trail tomorrow as I don’t have my helmet yet until Tuesday.
