    575 vs Stumpjumper for CNY riding

    Cheaper option is the 575.
    Easier option is the Spec.
    I see pros and cons to both.

    Would you say one is better suited to CNY riding over the other? Assume similar builds, alloy frames, and Fox CTD shocks on both.

    575 by a landslide. My wife went from the FSR Stumpy to the 575 and she is amazed how much better it is. Her previous belief was that most bikes were pretty much the same. I've created a monster.

    I would only steer you away from the 575 if you weigh much over 210# and were considering a carbon rear triangle model. Newer aluminum rear model? All go.

    I've seen several of both used out in the Rochester area. Although if Budget wasn't an issue the carbon Enduro does a fabulous job around most CNY trails.
    Can't a guy get bombed and call his ex at 3 in the morning without it meaning something?!
