damn Specialized! I said I wanted a long travel pure xc bike, with a brain shock, and under 25lbs, and price was no object. Well...they built it, now what am I supposed to do. $7K for that S works stumpy is just nut's, ain't it?

We had heard there was going to be a price increase, but help me rationalize here. The 05 S works stumpy was only$5K. The brain and carbon add $2K, you gotta be kidding me,

Let's hope the other two models of the brain eqpt stumpy have a great part spec, and are back (gulp) down to earth around $5K. Hi prices and very exclusive Sworks dealer network make it tough to swallow.
