Cheers for the advice Mike. The bike is also around 2400USD for me, and I had the exact same thoughts as you do. For what it is at that price point, it’s hard to argue. Something like a Trek Remedy 7 would suit me better, but the Stumpy does look kike quite a steal.
Cheers for the advice, I’ll take with a grain of salt however, as this years Vitus has a higher BB height, and since 2016, the Stumpy has had numerous upgrades, both in geometry and tech. However, I’ll keep it in mind, so your answer is not in vain. Thanks 🙂
