    After 21 years I’ve decided to retire my Specialized Stumpjumper Comp and buy a Full suspension ride.

    Nice full susser dude,how do you like it so far?I bet you got some gettin used to it after 21 years on a rigid.Which by the way,I would love to see a pic of your stumpjumper if you got one,I ride an 07′ stumpjumper so I’m curious to see you olde sj stand by.

    Thx Steve.

    I’m happy with the new Bike. The Marzocchi 55RS shocks seem too soft, my 220lbs sitting flat sinks her almost 3 inches. All in all a very solid rig though. The hydraulic brakes are simply fantastic. My brake points have been drastically reduced. I’m still tweaking the shocks but the more I ride the closer I can get to a perfect setup.

    Here is a pic of my Stumpjumper.

    Dude,that bike is freakin awsome.It just screams the roots of mtn. biking,and I cant believe you’ve been riding that thing for 21 years.You need a medal.When I bought my 07′ stumpjumper,one of the biggest reasons I picked it was because the front and rear suspension could be locked out so I can ride it like rigid on the trails and then have some suspension for the downhill stuff so I can have the best of both worlds.I dont even use my suspension on technical sections.I have been planning on building a rigid specific bike but cant quite come up with money just yet.
    You’ll have to review your two bikes with all the details of the differences from your experiences making the change from rigid to full susser.Pretty please????hahaha.

    p.s….Hold onto that bike and dont sell it,but if you do please let me know before you do.

    Hey Mitch,

    What is your sag?

    If you have 25%-28% sag, then you have the correct spring, then you just need to boost compression. If your sag is higher than stated, get new spring. I think that they only make one spring for this shock, but not quite sure bro.[/quote:3ctez74d]

    Hi Mongoose,

    Getting info on these Marzochi shocks has been difficult to say the least. How would I boost compression? I only have a single adjustment for rebound. Stronger springs I would guess is my only option but I can;t find anything about upgrading the stock springs. Anyone have any other ideas?

    The Fox Van R rear shock works perfectly.

    I’m keeping her, sorry mate 😀

    I don’t think I ever posted a pic of my rebuilt Liquid.
    Originally just wanted an updated drivetrain.
    Had fun rebuilding her and got carried away.
    Ended up replacing everything but the seatpost clamp.

    Murphy decided he wanted to be in the pic from the side.
    Image
    Rebuilt with a full XT drivetrain and Ritchey cockpit.
    A 145mm Nixon with 20mm through axle finishes the steering.
    Swapped out the old brakes for some BB7s and put some flashy new Wind Cutter rotors on it.
    Thomson seatpost and WTB Rocket V saddle keep the rump right.
    Pictured with my beater set of "freeride" wheels.

    Oh man, I love the Alligator Wind-Cutters, they remind me of saw [i:29z7o2g9]blades[/i:29z7o2g9] almost, haha. You got a sweet ride my man. Nicely done.

    Ok, here’s my new ride that I just put into service this spring.
    I bought the frame from a local guy via ebay, and then spent the rest of the winter tracking down components.

    And not to forget the old hardtail I started on:

    My Trek Fuel. Still need to replace the front fork, but very trail worthy.

    Avalanche 3.0. Don’t know what year :?:
    Shimano front derailer
    Shimano Acero rear derailer
    SR Suntour crankset
    RST Capa CL forks
    Tektro V-Brakes front and rear
    I hate the grips on this bike. They get very uncomfortable after just a few minutes of riding.

    I think it looks right at home sitting in front of the cottage we have on our property 😀
