Rider questions

Q: what year is the bike? I might be interested..
A: THis is a 2010 comp

Q: Where do you go to sell a Specialized Stumpjumper ? I am new to biking, and had one of these bikes give to me as payment (I am an attorney). This bike is frankly too good for me, and I clearly don't appreciate it as being a mere beginner. Where would I go to sell this? I am located in Michigan, and want someone who can appreciate it to own it. Thanks. Dean.

    Pros
    Bought as a frameset and built with Rockshock Pike XX1 1x11 drive train Roam 60 wheeler and SRAM Guide brakes... This bike is point and shoot like riding on a rail even in Sandy conditions. Very impressed

    After riding a 29re for so long you get used to the roll over of the bike wheel .... But it was Well work the change

    This was a great entry level bike for the XC minded rider. It is capable of light to medium trail and getting the wheels of the ground, if one is reasonable about it. For an XC bike, it is a touch heavy. Mine weighs in at about 28.5 lbs with only change from stock being tubeless tires w/Stan's sealant. All in all, a great starter/training bike.

    Pros
    Affordable, good value, durable, xc geometry

    Cons
    Entry level, heavy

    Highly recommend you go for a test ride.

    Update to my review: Took it out this last weekend on rocky/rooted/hilly terrain with a buddy riding his front suspension/hardtail 29er. It was a good move to go with a longer stem. The 6Fattie performed FAR beyond expectations, and I believe MUCH better than my friends 29. In trying to find ways to describe the ride, I settled on two:
    1) The FSR 6Fattie lets you do things confidently and safely that you otherwise shouldn't be able to do. You nearly instantly forget that you're on oversize tires, and at the same time, those oversize tires are giving you traction that cannot be overstated. I have no words to describe the ride!!
    2) There are no other ways to say it, ... The 6Fattie makes you a Mt Biking Superhero.

    On another note, I've mine set up for tubeless, and I highly recommend it.

    Pros
    Plush ride. The suspension and oversize tires really smooth out the trail. And the traction ... unbelievable. I read somewhere online that this forgiving bike increases your confidence, and they were right!

    Cons
    Stock stem is far too short. I suppose it would be fine if you were doing a lot of downhill, for XC riding I had to swap it out for a 110.

    Upgraded to Shimano XTR Trail brakes, Race Face Next SL crank and SRAM XX1 (1x11) components for the drivetrain.

    Pros
    Great design and comes stock with RockShox 150mm Revelation fork, dropper seat-post, and Fox Auto-Sag shock.

    Cons
    Middle of the road components. Brake system needs to be upgraded and wel as the drivetrain.

    I have already rebuilt this shock once and will have to do it again. Not a fan. I actually like my Rockshock SID much better, and it is still rolling after many years without a rebuild. The Talas is overrated.

    Pros
    Lightweight, built strong,comfortable, great rider position, Specialized quality, Brain technology.

    Cons
    Fox shocks

    My 26 bike is history. Love it out of the box

    Pros
    Handles well in rocky terrain, 2x10 gears with36 big cog in back. Stock set-up perfect, be sure to add a dropper seatpost. I went with KS for more height selection, wheels are great.
    The Revelation at 130 mm travel is all you want, easy to climb w/o raising wheel and plenty of stuff to descend.

    Cons
    Formula brake pads seem to wear quickly and are expensive.

    I researched several bikes prior to deciding to purchase the Stumpjumper FSR Comp Carbon 29. I also looked at the Yeti SB95, Tallboy LT, and Kona Satori. None of those bikes compared to the value of the Stumpjumper. I purchased the carbon Stumpjumper for the price of the others that were in aluminum. I am glad I chose the bike I did because I have been nothing but happy with my purchase. I have owned the bike for going on 2 years and it has held up great. I tend to lean toward the aggressive side of riding and have found that this bike is comfortable on everything from downhill runs to all day XC rides. I live and ride in the southwest (Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah) and this bike has taken everything I have thrown at it form Durango to Sedona.

    I did need to change a few things that weren't quite up to the task. Those were the Avid breaks which I swapped for XT's as well as the wheels. The avids were just too noisy and the wheels needed to be trued every month or so. To the credit of the wheels, I am more of the "grip it and rip it" type than the "pick the clean line type". I am known at my bike shop as someone who is very hard on equipment, so the wheels should be fine for the average rider. I also swapped out the Fox fork to one that has 34mm stanchion and 140mm of travel verses the stock 32mm stanchion and 130mm of travel. I feel like the bike came alive once I did this. The stiffer fork matches better with the frame and the extra from suspension slackens up the head tube angle just enough to give it a good balance between capable trail bike and aggressive all mountain bike. Buy the bike and spend the money you saved compared to a SB95C, or something like that, and upgrade the wheels, breaks, and fork.

    Pros
    Price
    Light
    Good stock tires
    Good component spec for the price
    Geometry

    Cons
    Brakes
    Wheels not as strong as I would like
