    2011 Stumpjumper FSR 29er Q's

    Seriously considering grabbing an XXL 2011 Stumpjumper FSR 29er. I'm 6'4" and 330 lbs. Test rode at the bike shop the other day and felt pretty good with 300 psi in the rear shock. Fox tells me that is the max design pressure for all their float shocks. Anybody have long term experience running the Triad II at 300 psi? Also, I assume I'm gonna have to at least build up a rear wheel. Anybody have good luck with the 36h rear wheel and its Hi Lo hub?

    I was up over 300lbs when I got my XL 2010 SJ FSR 20er Expert... I'm 6'5".When I looked into it I exceeded the weight limit for the bike. I think the spec'd limit was 240lbs??? Anyhow, my lbs said don't sweat it and they would stand behind it. So I purchased it. I think I had my read shock ~280psi... I couldn't get the sag set where I wanted it and the front suspension always felt soft on slow compressions... That said I loved the bike, rode it and used it as a fitness/stress releif tool! As I dropped weight the bike got better and better.

    Now at ~215lbs the bike is set up perfect!!! The suspension seems to work better now... Of course I'm stronger now so that may affect how the nike feels also...

    Probably wont drop the price anymore.

    My LBS was going to give me almost 30% off a Stumpy Comp FSR 29er in an XL but there was none in stock.

    I have a 2011 Expert. I'm running 290-295 in the rear. That seems to get me reasonable sag and lets me get pretty far into my travel of the larger bumps. I'm running about 190 pos and neg in the Reba shock.

    Good job! 2011 Stumpjumper FSR Expert 29er XXL is my ride...

    I am 6'4" 240pnds. I was up as high as 260pnds; and so far no issues with the bike, the shocks, or the wheels. I put about 150psi in the front fork and 260-275 psi in the shock. The bike has been nothing but amazing. I took a long break from mtb'ing, but I'm so glad that I'm back riding; especially on that bike!

    I think that as long as you keep the wheels on the ground (no jumping or hucking) and you stay on top of any maintenance issues, you should be good.

    As for price, as the LBS if they are willing to give you close out pricing now since a XXL isn't a big mover (no pun intended)
