Scalpel 3 or Stumpjump FSR comp ??
Looking at both bikes. I can't decide on which bike to purchase, just know I'm going back to a 26er. Both are 2012 models.
Very different bikes
The Scapel is a race bike, and the stupmjumper is a trail bike. Why is it just between those 2? Why not consider cannondales offering in the 5 inch market as well as the epic?
It depends how and where you ride. Unless you are racing more then a couple times a year I would probably lean toward the Stumpy or another less race oriented machine.
