    Uh oh! Bad move!

    You should have kept the Carve and bought the Epic, outright!

    Nice bike!

    I'm normally a 29er rider, but I had some 26" wheels left over from a swap meet deal, a new fork from an aborted 650B project... so why not pick up a frame to make a new bike? 26" stuff seems to be going cheap these days, and I like this bike better than the 29er FS bikes I've ridden--they start getting too long and slow, but this is still pretty nippy.





    I love that pierced seat tube, there's some really nice details on this frame. So much nicer than a generic rocker link:


    I'm actually really enjoying this bike. Kind of surprising, since my bias is towards rigid/29er/single speed. A nice change of pace!

    Two trails actually. Rifle Arch Trail, Rifle, CO and Mine Shaft, Silt, CO. The arch trail is a hike and bike and the other is a rarely if ever ridden 4X4 trail, steep walls and big drops!

    Just a couple of things so far:

    Fox 32 Float 100 CTD w/ Trail Assist, QR15 (best upgrade BY FAR combined with the wheel)
    Notubes ZTR FlowEX front wheel (tubeless)
    Easton EA70 mid-rise Monkeybar (I didn't like the 720mm flat handlebars so I went with 680mm riser)
    Easton Flatboy pedals (pedals for life, yo)
    Conti MountainKing Protection 2.2's (going to switch to Schwalbe Hans Dampf next season I think)

    Aside from putting on a wider seat for my big ass, that's about it.

    The new fork and wheel dropped about 3 1/2 pounds off the bike (31 before the upgrade, 27.6 after).

    Next on the list is a new rear wheel; I'll probably save another pound there at least. After that I'm going to re-evaluate whether or not I want to stick to the hardtail or go with a full-suspension.

    If I stick with it, I'll be looking at getting a set of XT brakes from a good friend + some new rotors, and maybe a new drivetrain.

    Yup, isn't she pretty? Actually, I've taken the Stumpy out 4x on technical trails over the past 4 weekends and at first, I would cringe when I hit a stump, checked for scratches...pretty sad, I know, but I just clean her up really well after each ride, but trust me she's got some battle scars...what's your ride like?

    Here's mine (best pic I have right now)!
    I've admired specialized bikes for years because they always look so cool from a paint-job perspective!

    This is my first spec, it's an 09 Hardrock sport. It was given to me, so I'm not gonna complain!

    However, I'm still so disappointed about the brown and red colour scheme lol! Any makeover suggestions greatly appreciated!

    Very nice simple bike! I've been thinking about getting a EVO HT myself and setting it up with carbon seat post and handle bars. The only question I have is when climbing dose the fame fill fairly stiff/ridged the frame tubes looks so skinny. BTW awesome pics wish I lived in the mountains!

    When you sit on the bikes they feel similar, so it was an easy transition to the new bike. Once you start pedaling though you instantly know its a new bike. The XX1 drivetrain is dead silent and the gear spread is nearly perfect. The carbon frame kills all the small vibrations and the bike just wants to take off when you pedal. I only have two rides so far but the Fox 34 is a big step up in stiffness and performance over any 32 I've rode and I'm already pushing the new bike harder than I ever did the previous bike.

    I'm sure the guy who neatly piled the leaves is happy with you...good thing there were not stones or hard branches in the pile, that would have been nasty...

    Just picked up a Stumpjumper, it's my first 29er and I cannot believe how much I like it!

    My 2001 or 2002 (forget what year) Specialized P.3
    Pretty much stock except for a few changes
    Fork: Marzocchi Z3.5 with thicker oil to reduce rebound
    Seat: Titec DH Berserker Saddle with titanium rails
    Tires: IRC Kujo DH for the trails/mud and Maxxis Holy Rollers for my everyday tire (just installed so nice)
    Pedals: Stock Specialized P.3 pedals with metal pins and added on Power Grips straps
    Grips: Just ordered ODI Rogue Locking grips
    Computer/Cyclometer: Specialized Speedzone Sport Wireless
    Toby Hendersen Enterprises (THE) Black Front Fender
    Lizard Skins Chainstay and Headset Guard (Black)








    Bike is an absolute blast - fast, maneuverable, relatively light bike - frame is a medium size.

    2012 Camber Expert

    My baby!







    Upgrades:

    Stans Flow Ex on Hope Pro 2 Evos
    RaceFace Bars
    Hope stem & bar ends
    XT brakes
    XT shifters i-spec

    I also swapped over the Reba Lowers from My Trek HT so the Spesh has white lowers and the Trek now has black -= which matches both bikes much better!

    Evo has a shorter top tube and I just felt too tight with a 55 or a 60 mm stem, I'm building a hardtail right now and I'm going with a 60 mm stem. Coming from a road background, I am just used to being stretched out. Personal preference mainly due to comfort. I was told that I would probably be more comfortable with a shorter stem on the Stumpy EVO, but I had a 55 mm and it did not feel comfortable.

    Here's my first 29er, Epic Expert Carbon Evo R 29, although it's more Evo T(rail) with a 120 mm fork than Evo R(acing). The big wheels make winter riding so much easier because of soo much more traction than on a 26" bike.

    Long story short...I am getting into biking due to my knees and don't think that the road genre is for me. I am drawn to Specialized for some unknown reason. I really only want to spend in the $500 range for my first bike, but think the RockHopper is probably the way I want to go. I will do some city riding and not sure how extreme I will go, but I live in DFW and there are some great trails in the HIll country and nearby that I bet I get into.
    Anyone own a Rockhopper that can help? I'm not in the range for the higher end bikes yet...but this brand is calling me.

    Well hello there! Looks a lot like mine! These things are getting rarer all the time and never seemed as common as the other stumpy models for some reason...

    Nice bike, gotta lose the saddle bag though, takes away from the toughness of the bike. Otherwise, I love the stealthy looking wheels. I have the FSR Comp Evo so I'm not familiar with the Brain, but I hear good things about it, some people don't like it though, but overall, I hear more positive than negatives. Have fun. Remember, rubber side down.

    I hear you about the saddle bag . That pic was taken before the maiden ride 3 months ago,the saddle bag has been removed right away as it did not get along well with the Command Post.
    Yeah I'm stuck with the Brain,I can't see myself flipping propedal levers like I used to do before switching to Specialized.

    I haven't been on a bike in a long, long time but I am finally getting my 1993 Rockhopper Sport going again. I never rode it much to begin with so it was in great shape. Just needed some new tires and a good cleaning.

    Smile 2013 Stumpy Evo

    Well here she is as of yesterday morning when I picked up the box from FedEx.
    A dedicated thread to show off your Specialized bike-evo1.jpg

    I was able to get everything put together and take her for a test ride. The trail ended up being pretty muddy, so I moved off of it and did a little gravel grinder. I got this with the intent of taking part in some adventure races and the Dirty Kanza. I have to say I was very happy with the ride.
