Here's the story: looking for a hardtail. I'd like to see if anyone wants to swap for flights to pretty much anywhere in US, Europe or Africa. My work travel means I build up an enormous stockpile of miles and airline credits.

Bikes I'm interested in: Scott Scale 900RC, Pivot LES 29, Niner Air 9 RDO, Trek Procaliber 9.8SL

I've also got properties in Europe and Cape Town that I could swap time for bike.
