So I have a 2010 StumpJumper FSR 26" with the brain. I was thinking of upgreading to a 27.5" bike and I had my eye on the new 700 Genius. I really like the tight handing of my 26" FSR but I would like to have a bit more rollover. I have taking the 29er SJ for a test ride and I really don't like the geometry of them at all. it feel like I have going to flip over the bars at any time, and the hard tail SJ is even worse! So what would be the big differences with the two bikes? I never use the lock out on my SJ fork (because I am to lazy to reach down) and the rear shock as the brain so I don't need to on the back, so it would be cool to try going up hills in full lockout.
This is the bike I have now Specialized Bicycle Components
