    2010 Specialized Stumpjumper Carbon Pro FSR

    Picked it up yesterday. Due to the tropical storm that is tearing through the mid-atlantic I haven't ridden it yet - but it is making my gym look a lot better for now

    the first thing you may need to do is warranty your avid brakes, incase you weren't aware theres a howling/vibrating issue with elixirs...

    great bike tho, whats the size and weight on it? any upgrades coming?

    Thanks a bunch for the heads up on the Elixir brakes. The bike is a medium, I am 6' / 180#. I put on a 90MM stem, replacing the 75MM it came with and it seems to fit perfect. Yes - the red is beautiful, a bit of a burnt tint to it. I put on some old SPDs I had and (as you can see in the picture) some short little bar ends. Haven't weighed it yet, but I am expecting 26# "wet". I'll start thinking about goodies when my wife seems to forget about the number she sees on the Mastercard statement....

    Wow - you're 6' and you got a medium? I'm 6'2" 190 and I have a XL on order. I have a long torso and like to be spread out...but the medium seems like it would be a bit stubby - no?

    I heard some surprise from others as well about the medium at 6' - but I had ridden another 09 Stumpie FSR this summer (again with a 90mm stem) and it had a perfect cockpit with the swept seatpost.
    We'll see after I get some riding in, but right now it seems like the right size to have ordered because the darn thing just feels big even sitting on it.
    It's not an apples-to-apples, but a friend of mine in Boulder is 6'5" and fits his XL M5 Marathon perfect.

    That is a great looking bike! The red highlights are sweet. Look forward to hearing some feedback on the ride. Haven't seem much on the new SJ suspension design - should be a beast!

    I am 6'-2" with a 34" inseam and wanted to pull the trigger on a 29" expert but that frame makes me want to ride another 26" bike again! Man what a decision! That thing is sweeeet!

    Hope

    OK I can tell you this much - that is the most ridiculous trailbike I have ever ridden on. Rock solid, accelerates like a scalded cat. Just be careful on the jumps. Hit a whoop, went a LOT farther than I expected, crashed and am in ICU a day later with a concussion. Ill survive to ride again soon, but sometimes Ya gotta pay to play.

    Heal up quick! And replace the helmet as I am sure you know!

    But we all want to know, is the bike ok?

    Thanks for the sentiments guys. Got home early this afternoon and my head is finally starting to clear. The bike and wheels seem to be fine, which is amazing considering the distance I went and the angle I augered in at. This isn't me, but it's the same idea at around 2:50:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78Po-1O_vnU

    I easily could have snapped a steerer or headtube on another "light" bike. I guess it's a testament to the huge carbon tubes and junction with the downtube. Jake83 - the bike is so gorgeous in real life I should buy another one to hang up and just look at as you suggest. It's that amazing.

    I will be riding again soon.

    I think it really depends on what you are looking for/ you rriding style. I always ride a size down. I'm 6'3" and ride a med. sx trail and large enduro. However, in the stumpjumper I go XL for better climbing abilities and overall more XC feel. The XL stumpjumper is a big bike but for me it is faster than the large in all terrain. I am so anal I owned both sizes at once to make sure.

    Farvin,

    Man if you are doing jumps like the Youtube video maybe the Stumpy might be over it's head.
    Nice bike though. Lose any short term memory with the bump on your head?
    Years ago, my friend who was recently married, went over on his trials bike and couldn't remember if he was married. We had to keep telling him he was and who his wife was. Five minutes later he would ask the same question again.

    Yeah, wow it has been a pretty wild couple of weeks. After I got out of the ICU, the tally was: a skull fracture / brain hemmorage and concussion. Imagine if I wasn't wearing a helmet... a torn patella tendon, a torn rotator cuff, three separated ribs, some organ damage and other miscellaneous lost skin and cracked things. I really didn't intend to hit the jump that hard, it just *happened* that way. The brain damage (mostly left temporal lobe) definitely affected my speech, balance and memory. I basically don't remember anything from the first two weeks after it happened.
    The crown on the bike was bent, I think the shop said about 4 degrees back. The new crown and steerer should be here any day, so when the neuro doc clears me for off-roading again the ride will be ready. Can't wait - I am going mental being off the bike for a month.

    Farvin,

    That's quite an extensive list for one auger in. Assume you just had a regular bike helmet on? No full face - down hill type helmet.
    Your right, that helmet saved you. Good luck with the healing.

    Yeah I know - I was pretty surprised at all the stuff that broke too, but I guess that's what I get for being almost 40 and acting like I'm still 16!

    HOLY CRIPE! I didn't know you were that banged up!

    Glad to hear you are recovering! As much as you miss the bike, take time healing!

    Nice bike. I'm looking at this one and an 08' Stumpjumper S-Works. Decisions, decisions.

    Good job!

    Thanks for the props guys - getting a little better every day.

    As far as this bike vs the 08 - good luck with your decision FL_Andy. I thought about an older Stumpie too, and the premium for a 2010 is steep, but the bike still just spoke to me in a way that I gad to go for it.

    Thank you for responding. I went for the S-Works because it was $500 less and I had already stretched my budget. I love the overall design on your bike though (especially the black wheel set).

    Good luck with the healing process. I'm still recovering from reconstructive knee surgery that i had a couple of years ago (torn ACL from basketball). My only advice is to give your body time to heal properly. I'm the same age as you and tried to come back too fast and ended up regretting it.

    Wow that looks awesome, I'll live vicariously through you until I am healed and mine is put back together.

    Q: Did it come with the FSA crank, gold shifters and rear der?

    Fess up some riding experiences you've had so far (feel free to gloat...) It lools like you keep some pretty good bike company too.

    Get well soon Farvin!!!

    BTW nice Range, I just sold my '89 Vogue, missing it already.

    I've just bought an '09 Stumpy Pro Carbon (NOS) great machine, not quite as sexy as the '10 model, but not far off.

    Feeling better everyday (aside from gaining 10# since I crashed). I've done a few light rides and am starting to crank again - which is allowing me to dial the ride in. Those in the know aren't kidding - getting the suspension dialed in is some work...Is your ride the brown frame 09? My LBS has one of those in and it is in fact damn sexy. The LWB Rangie is my wifes - 33's, lockers, 3" lift etc. It's her soccer mommy wagon, and she loves to wheel it around the Escalades! I drive a 94 Defender 90 myself, which I have taken to the point of absurdity. It is a license plate away from a trials truck at this point. If ya ever feel like getting another truck lemme know - I have a lot of RR connections. Farvin

    Now getting back riding as much as I can - and have a question for you guys who know a lot about suspension. I have the rebound dialed all the way in (slow) on the rear shock, but I still get a very uneasy "launch" feeling after bottoming out on hard dips. I rode an 09 Stumpy in Boulder last year that didn't feel at all like this - I could sit on it through hard whoops as hard as I wanted and never felt like I was getting launched. Ideas?

    What are your settings? These shocks can run well a few psi under the recommended. Saying that you you say it us when you bottom out, and by this do you mean when getting full travel. Do you get the same when using 1/2 or 3/4 travel. This isn't a sensation I have felt with my set up. Good to see you back riding and fit again after such a major crash
