    06 FSR XC answers from big S

    Hey Joe,

    Well I want to start off by thanking you for choosing Specialized again for your new bike! I also want to point out that the '06 SW Stumpy frameset is available in black and silver ano too.

    1) M5 vs M4, what kind of weight savings are there? The weight savings is about 5%, although we can get exceptionally high tensile strength. Which translates into less material without sacrificing strength.

    2) Is the increase in stiffness of the M5 that significant, and/or noticeable? The strength to weight ratio is greater, leads into the last answer. The stiffness being noticeable.... I doubt it.

    As for bike weights, the M5 is 24.5lbs in large and the M4 is 26lbs in large.

    Cheers, JB

    I didn't ask what percentage of the bike is M5 or M4 tubing. I'll follow up with that question.
    Interesting the weight's, the higher part spec, ecpecially the wheels, make up most all that difference on the SW(M5) bike. If M5 is only 5% lighter, frame and rear shock must be around 5lbs, that's only 4oz's. If my math right.

    Man, a medium Stumpy FSR XC pro, with a few easy replacements, lighter seat, stem, bar, a better wheelset, and Stan's no tubes, could easily slip below 25 lbs, maybe even approach 24 lbs.

    SWEET!

    magdaddy,

    You confused me on some of your other posts as well as this one. Why do you call it a Stumpy FSR XC Pro?

    I am not being a d!ck, I just want to know.

    My understanding is for 2006 there is

    1. Fsr XC with 100mm of travel
    2. Stumpjumper with 120mm or 130mm of travel.

    giving the prices you quote, you are talking about the Stumpjumper right?

    The three S bikes I am interested in are the 06 Stumpjumper full suspension models with the brain shock, S works carbon, s works M5, and Stumpy Pro. I did not notice in the dealer catalog if the name is changes to FXR, but I doubt it. FSR is patented suspension technology from the big S. I find it hard to believe they would change the name.

    The three models I mention are 130mm travel bikes front and back. I was under the impression that there would not be a 100mm stumpy for 06.

    Fsr Xc

    Jacks post contained a typo, I believe the confusion is over your use of FSR XC when refering to the Specialized Stumpjumper line. The FSR XC is a separate, lower priced line of suspension bikes.

    Specialized just sent me an email saying the '06 FSR Expert is 28lbs, for what it's worth.

    BTW, the Enduro Expert is 30lbs.

    New question here. 06 M5 Stumpjumper frames

    Has anyone seen an 06 S-Works Stumpjumper M5 frame? Are they the same design as 05 aluminium frames?

    Weights?

    Recently collected my 06 Stumpy FSR Pro - very cool, but I'm just wondering how Specialized weigh their bikes? Shop scales read about 28lbs in large, not 26lbs as an earlier post suggested from a Specialized rep. I'm in Aus, so I don't know if there's a 2lbs tax shipping them here or something (!) but that's a pretty big difference.

    Any help appreciated - Specialized?
