    Baby got new shoes...

    After trashing the front wheel on my 2013 Stumpjumper FSR Comp 29er and being unable to get a replacement rim from Specialized, I sprung for a set of Mavic Crossmax ST wheels... Lighter, stronger (I hope), and much prettier... First ride tomorrow...

    Yes, it is an XL... It fits great, but since I come from a roadie background, I'm thinking of flipping the stem to get the front end down just a bit...

    Flipping the stem will put a ton of weight up front. I would be careful on the steep downhill as it will be really easy to go OTB. Just some friendly advice.

    Nice color scheme on the bike. Haven't seen that one yet on the stumpy.

    Mavic ride report - way better than the Rovals... feel lighter jumping curbs and climbing, and stiffer while descending, front wheel seems to track better too... Oh, and they look b!tchin'

    For the dude asking how much I paid, I got them from a shop on ebay for $700 brand new with all the attachments. Setting them up for 15mm front and 142 rear took about 15 min - easy! Running them tubeless with my original tires...
