The Gambler 10 comes shod with the Shimano Zee groupset, which carried out so well it left us examining the benefits of the extra expensive Saint group. The Scott likewise had appropriately broad Funn bars, and testers found the Fox 40 to be an excellent suitable for the bike.
The Bettor had a playful nature, stood out off lips well and merely romped in the roughest components of the path. The bottom-bracket elevation is flexible from 13.6 inches to 14 inches, which in combination with the low center of mass and short back side offered it an enjoyable feeling.
