So I was 95% set on the C'dale BBQ F3, but now i'm starting to lean towards the Stumpjumper HT. I've test ridden both and they both fit well. Well...I felt I was leaning a bit further in the Stumpjumper, but that was a size too big. So i'm assuming the correct size won't feel as stretched out. The only glaring negative about the Specialized is it has V-brakes, esp. at this pricepoint. The next level up with the discs is a few hundred more than I want to spend.
For the same price, which would you get?
Nicer welds and finish
Made in the USA
2-3 lbs. heavier (28 lbs.?)
Specialized Stumpjumper HT
2-3 lbs. lighter - (25-27 lbs.?)
Cooler paint scheme (debatable)
Made in Taiwan/China
