    Follow-up on 2004 Stumpjumpers

    For those of you who have owned a 2004 Stumpjumper, how does it compare to the other FS bikes you have owned previously and/or have purchased since the SJ? What bike do you ride more?

    Curiously, I ask. I've since purchased a "fancy" low-production bike with over 5" of rear travel. Although it's a great and perhaps a more capable AM bike, I still have no desire to sell my SJ. The stumpie has 4 inches of travel so it's more tightly sprung, and for XC situations I often prefer it.

    perfect

    well...

    it would be if the shock was mounted in the main triangle and if it had top tube cable routing. Aside from that it fits like a glove.

    Yeh,
    just put 32 more miles on mine over the 4th and still love it.
    I've rebuilt my hardtail but just can't stay off the stumpy.

    They rule

    My girl friend has one and I like just as much as my totaly pimped out ETSX 70. If I were buying a new bike for myself today it would most likely be a stumpjumper. I think their quality is on par with if not better than the boutique brands like Elsworth and Turnner.
