    2013 stumpjumper fsr 29 - Comp or Evo? (Fox or Rockshox?)

    Hi!

    Im about to order the new stumpjumper fsr 2013 and I need some help to find the best choice...

    Could you guys take a look at the speclist for me? Wich fork would be better?

    Fox float 29 CTD 130mm?
    or
    Rockshox revelation 29 RC3 140mm?

    The 10mm difference doesnt really matter to me... Evo is more expansive because of the command post. I would like to have one but I can put one on the Comp too!

    Thanks!

    My question is why not have fox 34's on the evo at least? A 32 under me from anyone (fox, rs) with more than 120mm is a noodle (I weigh 195 geared up). I really like that bike but I would swap to a fox 34 right off the bat and limit travel if need be...and I don't even really like fox that much. But these bikes need 34's on them. Rockshox needs to come out with a 34mm fork with a real 20mm axle...15mm axle is another annoying "new standard"

    Specialized does have Fox make a 150mm 34. They put it on the 26" evo carbon. The alu evo gets a 32 rockshox. Both bikes deserve 34's IMHO.

    Agreed. These bikes need 34s if you're going to ride them as intended. Shoot, I knock the stanchion tubes loose on Fox forks every 2-4 months on my race/trail bike, let alone a bike that sees more rugged use!

    As far as Comp or Evo, it really depends on your focus. The Comp will be a bit more targeted at all around use, while the Evo is a bit more focussed on going downhill.

    But they are so close, you could darn near choose based on color, or which noodly 32 fork you think will fetch more on ebay when you swap for a 34.
    The drive towards achievement and success is the motive power of civilization.

    I bought the white f34. Then had it vinyl wrapped in a matte black. Done.

    And since 70% of us HATE the white. They can be had cheaper. I bot mine new for 750 shipped.

    Man the f34 Made a HUGE difference. And I am only 165 geared up.

    I can't imagine what it would be like to ride a f32 140mm fox RL being 180+. That would be a limp noodle.....

    i'm in the same boat, can't decide which one. Is the Evo that much more aggressive?

    Evo has wider rims, longer travel(front and rear), comes standard with a dropper post, 20QR instead of 15QR, all for only 300 bucks more. Why not?

    In my opinion, if you are going to upgrade from the comp, and stick with an aluminum frame go with the elite. It still has the command post and also has the BRAIN.
    I only wish it wasn't black and gold, I'm not a big fan of gold, but it has some sick graphics though!

    i went thru the same dilemma, but i ended up with the comp due to my smaller build.

    However i feel that the dropper is added bonus if you are ok with the Evo geometry
