    2010 Stumpjumper 29 SS builds

    I'm thinking of taking the SS plunge and the new Stumpjumper looks pretty sweet. I'm torn whether to build up a frame or buy the complete version. Id be interested in hearing from anyone who has one and their specs, weight, reviews,pics etc.

    Please don't tempt me with any pics of the carbon s-works version, I can't afford it.

    My friend has a geared Stumpy 29er hard tail. He likes it quite a bit. If you're thinking of building up your own, I'd say go for it. I built my SS and have loved it. Once you're willing to start with the frame and go from there, your options are endless.

    my frame came in at 59 oz with the ebb
    size 17.5
    if you like the silver you will not save any money building it up yourself
    it has a nice spec also
    the black and tan looks better in person IMHO
    I am waiting on my seat post and and for surlys cogs to come off back order
    all our trails are closed anyway

    Skip the Stumpjumper, you can get a Niner AIR9 (lighter than the stump) for ~80 less than the Specialized. Niner is a much cooler company, Specialized is run by a bunch of pencil pushers and lawyers... Phuck the big S!

    That's questionable at best. Is there really a "better" EBB? If there were everyone would be using it (unless of course Specialized tried to sue you because they own the name EBB).

    I'd rather buy a bike from a company that is passionate about what they do, and about the sport that makes it possible for them to earn a living. The big S can blow donkey balls

    Yes there is.


    But back on topic, I personally like building from the frame up, but the complete Stumjumper SS looks like a pretty good deal. IMO the most important thing on a SS is the wheelset, and the complete Stumpjumper has a pretty dang good one. DT240s rear hub, and X450SL rims.
    It's got good brakes, and a good shock too, if that's your bag.

    Hands down, I'd choose the Specy over the Air 9.

    I didn't realize Specialized was using a split shell EBB. That is definately the best EBB design, and I don't understand whay more companies don't use it, probably because it is more expensive to build with. I am not a big Specialized fan, but they just moved up a notch in my book. But man, those chainstay welds are Fugly!

    get a test ride on the stumpy and you will be wanting one. It just feels right. The black and tan looks extra sweet.

    Upset Bike

    Getting the 2010 SS full bike setup too. Just waiting for it to become available. I like the tan/black frameset, but the complete bike is too good of a deal. Plus I plan on selling the wheels and fork. If anyone has pics of the complete bike, I'd love to see it!

    +1. All this talk is a big tease. Anyone have a 2010 with some pics?

    I've posted pics of my S-Works SS here before, but I won't do that now as you requested. Yes, I'm lucky to have it, but I shot my wad on this and I drive a VW, so it's all about focusing one's spending. My riding buddies have termed it the "blinglespeed" as every single component was picked for its utter coolness. Also, I'm balding and in my 40s, so I'm allowed to have my vices.

    You can't go wrong with the Stumpie in aluminum--it's sweet. I agree with the earlier poster too about wheels, the spec 2010 is a nice, well-rounded singlespeed. I think it's a lot of bang for the buck, but it's not cheap either. Then again, I think the black and tan paint might even look better than my carbon S-works. Good luck and post pics!
