I have a 2012 Hardrock that I've been riding for a while now and I've been pretty happy with it since I've upgraded literally everything on the bike once the original stuff broke. The only thing keeping it resembling the original bike is just the frame itself. I have an opportunity to pick up a 2011 Stumpjumper frame locally for a reasonable price but I'm concerned about spending the money if it's just going to be the same bike in the end.
I've never ridden a different frame so I suppose I'm just asking - is there enough difference between the Stumpjumper and Hardrock frames to actually notice any kind of an overall difference in weight, rigidity, handling, etc.?
