Having just picked up a Rocky Mountain Hammer29 hardtail 29er for review, I’m really liking the simplicity offered by a hardtail mountain bike. However, I still wouldn’t even dream of buying a hardtail 26-inch bike… those extra 3 inches make a world of difference–especially with a hardtail.
Apparently ScottUSA feels the same way as I do (we’ve both take our sweet time realizing it too) and is introducing their first 29er for 2010, the Scott Scale 29er. This hardtail looks to be a straight-up aluminum frame (no doubt a carbon-fiber version is either on the way or in the works) with solid, all-mountain geometry. The mid-level model (pictured here) will sport a RockShox Reba SL fork and a mixture of Shimano Deore and XT drivetrain components. Look for the price to come in at an estimated $1600 with availability TBA (but I’m sure this Fall or Winter).

I was able to ride this bike at Interbike last month and it’s a stellar entry-level 29er hardtail. It will be the best way to get your feet wet with big hoops if you are on a budget or simply want a 2nd bike.
