    Which 29 Hardtail for all around bike?

    Looking at the 12' EVO 29 and the 13' Stumpjumper Comp Carbon 29... trying to choose between the 2. I ride primarilly cc/all mountain and do some time trial racing. Looks like geometry is almost same. Right now Im leaning toward the EVO as Ive never owned carbon and ride pretty hard at 190lbs. I do some light jumping but not any more than the riding requires. Any feedback? Im looking at both used in great shape. any feedback would be appreciated.

    EVO 29, but I'm biased
    Enjoy the ride!

    I was asking the same thing a couple years ago, I bought the first Stumpy HT Evo 29er when it came out (2011 I think, the black and white one). I ride this as my primary bike and have no other mountain bike. I race it and cruise it with friends. I can get up all the steep climbs I did on the previous triple ring FSR with my 1 ring on EVO. Mine is largely still stock, with the change out to an XX shifter. Great bike.

    Works best with 40 weight ball bearings and Prestone... No, make that Quakerstate
