    New question here. 2009 Stumpjumper - changes

    Does any one know if there is any changes to the 2009 stumpy frames and shocks?

    I wish they'd change the whole bike back to the 07 frame and stick with Fox shock and fork. I'm sure the 09's will be sporting some type of Specialized front fork. They will probably keep the same ugly frame as the 08's though. With the same ugly decals and colors. And who knows about the rear shock. I am alone in not liking the look of the new Stumpys? Not only are most of the colors ugly but the whole frame is just awkward looking IMO.

    I agree the 2008 Stumpjumpers colors are ugly. The exception is the S-works IMO. I saw a carbon Pro today that wasnt bad either, but the "army" color on the alloy Pro model is too weird for me.
    Hopefully the 2009's have a simpler paint scheme......how about a nice black anodize with minimal graphics like the 2006's ?

    Well, I like 'em, and I like mine - "ugly" paint and all

    I would expect for 09 for more of the line to have the specialized fork, as opposed to 3rd party stuff. And I wouldn't hold my breath for single-color paint schemes either. They've done that recently, and all the other lines feature some decent, relatively subdued graphics this year.

    Love my 08

    I think the expert and compls are sweet looking bikes in the silver or ti color. However, I have seen the blue and white comp and think it is an abomination upon the eyes.

    Who cares how the frame tubes look??? I care about how the bike rides and the new SJ are sweet.

    You're absolutely right. Sorry for my digression......guess im just frustrated because I like the older graphics better, plus I had a few beers in me when I replied last night.
    I'm wondering the same thing about changes to the suspension or frame design. I would imagine not much would change this year because of the big changes last year. Maybe we'll see a Specialized fork on the less expensive models.

    I think this is a new color scheme for the Stumpy expert or pro, so still a fox at the front.

    And this is a new scheme for the comp:

    The pictures are from a European dealerday, so I don't know if these are European only schemes, but I do not expect this.

    plan on dropping some more cash if you get that beautiful white one... there is no way you could resist getting white wheels/spokes for that baby.

    I've got an 08 Pro frameset in black. By far the best looking of the bunch, but Specialized red would be sweet! If they don't with a red frameset I'll strip mine down and have it painted red...to match my truck.
    The blue on the Comp I think, is a pretty sweet color with the white fork, bar and saddle. Would look even better with a set of those new white DT Swiss XR4.2d rims!
    As for the Specialized rear shock...guess what...it's manufactured by the same company and in the same building as FOX.

    That's also what I thought. The 120 mm really does look less long.

    '09 S-Works M5 HT picture? Anybody?
    Decided to swap my '99 Stumpjumper M2 Comp to something newer. But cannot decide - do i wait until '09 frame or buy '08 one. Picture of new one might help drastically

    There are more than one threads in this forum that show pics of '09 bikes including the stumpy hardtail. Just look around for threads that mention '09 bikes and include pics. The pics that I have seen all look really nice. Good luck with your choice, post some pics when you make your decision,

    To all the specialized specialists (lol):
    I'm a brain believer so say I wanted to get the comp frame because it's white, would I be able to convert it to a brain bike, or is the rear triangle etc. different on the non brain equipped frames. Not talking about cost effectiveness or anything just want to know if the components are interchangeable.

    Thanks!
