    Specialized Stumpjumper VS Giant NRS-2

    Need your opinion.

    For trails, moderate nature rides.

    the stumpy will probably be a little softer than the nrs, but the nrs probably won't bob as much while climbing or pedeling out of the saddle. the stumpy does have a fox propedal shock, which i've heard works pretty good. the nrs 2 costs less than the base stumpy also (unless you're looking at the nrs 2 disc, which i think is the 'real' nrs 2 lol).

    i dont think you could go wrong with either bike, as they are both good rides. however, the stumpy is geared a little more towards trail-riding and the nrs is geared a little more towards racing. you'll just have to test ride both and see which one you prefer. have the bike shop set the rear suspension up for your weight befor you try em out.

    good luck!
