    I finally bit the bullet and managed to find an Evo. Just need to get some proper pedals and get out on it, haven't had a chance yet. It's my first FS bike having been on hardtails all my biking life.

    Crossing a lake with the epic.








    Its been a great bike. Only the 4Ti egg beaters blew out from mileage. Put a Phenom 130 saddle on and put on some ergo style grips + xtr pedals. Ive done a few 24hr solo xc races on it and grabbed a 1st place over all even.

    I cycled it from Byron Bay to Adelaide. 2300km in 14 days. Solo. Just a saddle bag with a sleeping bag in it + basic spares.

    Looks awesome! I just bought the same bike. You wouldn't happen to have a parts list of what you need to convert it to a road bike would you? I would love to do the same in the coming months.

    I had my LBS put them together for me. They are cheap XLC Inverno 29" wheels with SRAM HB-506 hubs and DT Swiss spokes. The rotors are cheap Tekro units. The cassette is a SRAM PG1050. Tires are 700-32 Specialized All Condition Training. The set up is great for me to train (sustained sprints) but, I wouldn't take on anything big. It just doesn't have the gearing for cruising higher speeds for long. Everything was a little over $300. It flies with this set up.

    Thanks for the quick reply and parts list. This is something that I look forward to doing soon.

    2012 Stumpy EVO 29 HT

    Might try out a different stem, but other than that it is going to stay stock. Maybe a new wheelset for it next year.

    Where do you ride? How do you like the 1x10 drivetrain?

    I normally ride Schaeffer, Wakefield and Fountainhead. For my first ride of the year and maiden voyage about 1.5mos ago I took her out to Fountainhead and was dying on the climbs since I did not have my bikings legs and fitness. I've been doing alot of road biking on weekdays so the next time I ride there I should be able to power through most of the climbs. For Wakefield, the 1x10 is buttah and I'm thinking it will be for Schaeffer as well. Riding Fountainhead on Sunday so we'll see. I bought a smaller chainring up front just in case, but now that I have my biking legs back I want to see how it goes before I swap it to a smaller chainring. I am loving the 1x10 for the trails I mentioned.

    So the climb at Fountainhead was difficult, but it's not like you had to walk the bike up. I'm considering going 1x10 since I've never used my granny.

    I had to walk it up a couple times cause my legs were toast. I'm thinking this weekend I'll have a much better experience. When I ride in the biggest sprocket in the rear it feels somewhat close to a granny gear. The big wheels seem to help with climbing as well. I've thought about going 2x10, but if I go 2x10 I'll probably end up just buying a FS29 eventually. But for now I'm really liking this bike.
    Enjoy the ride!

    Well I bought another Specialized bike bringing my total to three now. A 2005 Rockhopper Comp, 2008 Stumpjumper fsr Comp, and just picked up this 2012 Sirrus Comp for roads and paved paths. I had rigged my Rockhopper with smoother treaded tires for paths and road, but I wanted something geared more to the road so the SIrrus Comp fit the bill. I change to a Thompson zero offset seatpost and changed the saddle from a Specialized Targa to a Specialized Avatar Comp Gel. Haven't even had a chance to try the new saddle yet, but hope to get out on Sunday for a ride.

    Very nice, your bike is making me rethink my recent speculation on getting a 2012 demo 8 when they go on sale and pick up a Enduro s-works instead.

    I just put Status wheels on my Enduro. The stock rims were a little small for me. I like having a little heavier and burlier wheelset. Looking at pictures, the new wheels make my 2.2 tires look like 2.5's.

    Here is my first proper MTB. A 2009 FSR Stumpjumper Elite.

    I just started riding MTB last year and found this a great first bike.



    Pretty much standard apart from the...
    Easton Haven 70mm stem
    Easton EA70 685mm Monkey Bar
    XT Crankset
    Answer Rove flats
    Raceface Atlas chain device
    Truvativ bash ring
    KS i900R dropper post

    I have since moved on from this bike but really enjoyed my time riding it.

    I picked up a new bike today, after selling my old GF bike. This is a new, 2011 Specialized Rockhopper Expert Pro 29er. One that was left over that I was able to get a good deal on. It is my first 29er, and this thing rides like a dream. Took it on a quick 5 mile loop down some trails and a little paved road, and it is sweet.

    My recently purchased brand new 2011 Epic Elite. Got a good deal from my local bike shop. I rode a Cannondale Super V Raven before that, its amazing how much better this bike does everything. You couldn't pay me to go back to the Raven! Took this pic about 3 hours after I picked it up from the LBS, in such a rush to ride I didn't bother taking the reflectors off.
