    I've had a few SS rigs in the past few years. I had a GF Rig, then a Vassago Jabberwocky, then a Salsa Selma. I've never made SS my main ride and love my FS bike for most things, but I like the training and a** kicking I get from a SS (I seem to ride them the most in the spring and fall for training and variation). Of the lot, the Jabber was probably my favorite. Until now. This bike kicks a**. 2011 Specialized Stumpjumper SS with a Fox G2 fork set at 100. Climbs as good or better than the Jabber, despite a completely different approach to geometry (the Jabber is long, the Stumpy is short). Completely done looking and this one will be with me for a good long while.

    New Inbred SS....

    Just switched from a Scandal SS with vertical dropouts to this Inbred with Swap Out sliders. Mounting the Magura Marta's on the slider was a pain....had to do a little "Dremeling". 23.5 lbs as you see it......

    Lots of track bikes...but.... WHY U NO RIDE TRACK? Toe clips and bullhorns are a dead give away. Given my bianchi is mostly street thats why i bought it but it does do some velo practices. However thats what this ones purpose in life is. Too much punishment on the street.

    takes all of 2 seconds to change to cliepless... and i already established that i wanted to convert to actual track racing than regular urban riding... the bianchi will do just fine... there are plenty that use bull horns in races btw.

    i like the S-works regardless

    I have an unhealthy obsession for these Stumpy frames. Makes me want to strip the paint off my Carve and polish the sucker.

    Got any more pics?

    Did you see the frame for sale in the classifieds? Same one as this for a fair price. Not mine, just passing along a good deal.

    Well after fixing up a vintage road bike I decided it wasn't for me after all. So selling off that plus another old road frame and vintage bmx got me some cash to get some new bits for an old mtb. Yesterday (since the pic) I"ve put the chain on and found that34/16 is indeed the magic ratio, yaay!
    Just brakes to sort out now. Nicer tires would be good down the track too, but this will do for now!



    EDIT: Completed it today, installed brakes and cut the steerer tube to size


    Happy with the result, can't wait to ride!

    I had White Brothers match the travel on the 1996 Rock Shox Judy, which is 63mm. I ran this fork on my 2009 IF Deluxe for a bit (exactly the same geometry as the Rhygin) and it's a fantastic fork!

    Yeah the blue white bike looks like a great 29er for people that would normally not be tall enough to ride 29" wheels!

    It was purposely built around a very short axle to crown fork(420ish mm). It fits me as any 26er I have ever had or my 650b bike does.

    I was able to hang a few things that I have for the frame this weekend. Only missing a crank (Stylo 1.1 coming) and a stem (Easton Haven coming - the one in the photo is just there to keep the fork in place). I'm happy that I don't find the different tones of blue to be visually disturbing next to each other. The Bontrager XR1s are a bit disconcerting on the outset. At 1.9 inches (and that's really pushing it) they seem so puny compared to my 2.4 Racing Ralphs. We'll see how they perform. I doubt it will see too much big stuff - mostly hard pack and MUP with the family, but I also have a fat fork in the garage and wanted to make a half fat out of it in the future. With that skinny rear tire it would look ridiculous.

    Wow- thanks. I personally find some of the steel/ ti frames with super clean and/or curvy lines and whatnot more aesthetically appealing (Singular, Jones, etc), but I do love the looks of this bike as well as the way it rides. Simple, pretty, functional.
