    Rocky Altitude vs Specy SJ FSR vs Tomac Snyper 140

    I'm ready to pull the trigger for a trail bike, right now I'm on Zaskar carbon
    The candidates are:
    - Rocky Mountain Altitude 50 (2010) http://www.bikes.com/main+en+01_102+...CATID=3&Y=2010
    - Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp (2010) http://www.specialized.com/zz/en/bc/...010&spid=46578
    - Tomac Snyper 140 2 (2009)

    Suggestions and comments for best performance, overall ride quality (especially rocky staff) and fun factor please.
    Drive-train and brakes will be substituted by xtr, noir and formulas oro
    Thanks for your time

    They're all great bikes, they all ride pretty differently. They fit differently, they pedal differently, and they will feel different even in the parking lot.

    Go ride them, all other advice is probably biased and subjective.
    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?

    I will say [if you go with the Tomac] get the 2010 Snyper over the 2009 despite the price difference. It's a better bike in every way and the suspension design is much improved.
    Gotta get up to get down.

    I have a 2010 stumpjumper fsr pro that I built up with a revelation team 150 in the front sitting on stans flows and hope hubs with saint drive train but slx cranks, I built it because I test rode a stumpjumper fsr and then I custimised it for what I knew I would ride every day, we can tell you what we like to ride as in I love my bike, but take some time call up some shops and pedal some around in some lots, and trails specialized has an awesome demo program.
