SCOTT 2022 Tuned Ransom build: Scotty Laughland 

‘The SCOTT 2022 Tuned Ransom frameset has been Scotty’s go-to Enduro and big mountain adventure bike. It’s designed to be incredibly capable yet light enough to climb anything. I personally enjoy the process of building each of my own bikes and specifying them with a selection of chosen components that I feel match the bike’s performance. 

PRO’s Tharsis range compliments my Ransom build perfectly. The carbon handlebar is lightweight, stiff, compliant, and offers great damping properties – helping save my hands on those longer descents. I run them at full width, 800mm, and personally choose the 30mm rise. This height allows me to run a lower stack height which maintains a longer reach on the bike but doesn’t compromise my ride position. I also run the 55mm stem, it gives me the extra length to move around on the bike and is a good balance when it comes to climbing and descending. 

The saddle is the PRO’s Griffon Off-Road, the 142mm width perfectly suits my size, it’s well-padded and comfortable for all-day climbing but slim enough that I can maneuver on technical descents. 

I love this bike and can’t wait to see where it takes me this summer!’
