    2012 Stumpjumper FSR Comp Carbon 29er

    2012 Stumpy FSR Comp Carbon 29er
    New bike weighed 28.8 lbs...all stock (no pedals)

    Changed everything to XTR...Complete drive-train and brakes... Went tub-less... FSR Carbon bar... Only handy-cap is back-lite seat post (1lb heavier than reg. seat post)... Shimano XTR pedals... 27.4lbs...

    With lighter wheels I'll break into the 25-26lb class...Not Bad for a Stumpy FSR Carbon 29er

    Just rode for four days in a row... Mental vacation break... "LOV THE XTR STUFF"...

    If anyone is undecided about this bike ... Go for it... You wont regret it...

    I love both of the bikes mentioned above. I am definitely either going with the EVO FSR 29 or the Carbon FSR 29.

    I changed my fsa 680mm bar to a race face 725mm SIXCl bar and it feels much better...I like the wider grip...I fell it gives me more control...I'm still dialing in the suspension... Bike is awesome!!...

    I think either way you go you wont regret it...

    Sounds great and don't take it the wrong way but wouldn't it have been cheaper to build it frame up?

    I was going that way but the only carbon stumpy 29er frame is an S-works... I would need an additional $2500.00-$3000.00 to finish the bike properly... and I was already $1000.00 over my initial budget... its always the same problem with me and my bikes...
    IT"S ONLY MONEY...RIGHT?...

    I had a friend of mine send me the rear triangle and brain system off his S-works... The front triangle of his bike was damaged by an accident in his garage... Anyways I got it on Friday and had my lbs mechanic install the brain system only... the rear triangle has possible damage... I rode it over the weekend and after trying different setups I ended up liking it in the fully open position... Goes to show you... Were better off without a brain...

    I have a 2009, and have been real happy with it. Could only imagine a 2012.

    Yeah, I guess I'm the same way. I'm always tinkering with mine, it's usually upgrading to stiffer forks, wider/burlier wheelsets, chainring combo experimenting, dropper posts and chainguides, and stem length fine tuning. After two or three years I've found I spent more than what I paid for it. I suppose if I bought an upper level to top model to begin with I save money in the long run and wouldn't need to upgrade so much. Spending around $5k on a bike is tough to swallow but is beginning to make more sense, especially a versatile FS trailbike which gets probably 70% or more of my total ride time.

    My Stumpy FSR 29er is loads of fun, climbs better than my 25 lbs, 6" 26er and way better on the down hill.
    Narrow and rugged is the path that leads to life and few find it.
