    S-worker - you have very similar height and insame to my.
    What seatpost length you are using?
    My bike is not ready so I cannot check it, this is why I'm asking.
    Do you think 380mm seatpost will be enough?

    Anyone can explain me why I have to wait for frame 2.5 months?
    There is a date of production on the frame : August 2012.
    Distributor confirmed they have it on the stock 2 months ago (Distributor for Eastern Europe is in Czech Republic)
    I'm very curious what they had been doing during this 2 months ??

    For me it would be enough. Depending on the saddle i have the post 240 - 260 mm outside of the frame. So even a 350 mm with 90 mm min insert would be enough.

    I'm next crazy idiot who decided to XX1 group..
    I set up 36T chain ring on the front and I'm little bit confused about clearance between frame and chain ring. It is only 3mm.. I'm not sure is it enough..

    My 2013 15.5 S-WORKS stumpjumper HT building thread

    Very nice, less red than my bike, more white/black. Looks really great. Have fun riding it and forget about all your problems and delay.

    Ride reports?

    Thanks guys! Fantastic thread for someone exploring the idea of the Stumpjumper HT s-works for next year... and even more interesting because I'm a bit over 5'6

    I'm currently riding a medium F600 cannondale (26) with the almost same tube lengths and angles as the 17.5 Stump except the standover a bit lower... So,15.5 with 90 mm stem or 17.5 with 75 mm stem for the Stump? Still have to dig that question. I'll have to test both I guess no to make any mistake.

    Like mentioned in the title, any ride reports? Especially about the rear triangle comfort as the bike doesn't have the reputation of being really strong on this...

    Thanks!

    I'm a bit over 5'6" as well, but went with a 17.5 frame and a 55mm stem for a Stumpy 29er. With 75mm, the position didn't feel right. Felt like I had too much weight up front especially when climbing the rear felt light. Shorter stem helped bring weight back and the bike feels pretty dialed. Also, with a shorter stem you're going to want to run a wider bar.

    My 2013 15.5 S-WORKS stumpjumper HT building thread

    Please do a testride. I am 173 cm and had ridden a M bike. Length was ok and adjustable by changing the stem BUT the standoverheight was far too much. I could barely reach the ground because its 5 cm more than at may 26er HT in M. So i decided to go for a 29er Stumpy HT in S with a 100 mm stem. Perfect, agile, adjustable. Also very short wheelbase so agile.

    Please do testrides because it is also a matter of taste. At my height you can ride both.

    Thanks RCMTB and S-Worker for your inputs. About the standover of the 17.5 stumpy, it's 2cm higher than my current Ht F600 Cannondale medium which is ok at 79 cm but doesn't leave me much room. my inseam is 79 cm no shoes on + 2.5/3 cm with MTB shoes.

    The best is to ride both 15.5 and 17.5 indeed. I should be able to do that as my LBS is planning a test weekend in August.

    Any comments on the feeling with the rear triangle? Comfortable (for a Ht of course)? Enough room for 2.25 tire and low pressure?

    My 2013 15.5 S-WORKS stumpjumper HT building thread

    In my opinion you dont need that wide tyres at a 29er XC/MA HT. My favourite tyre is the S-Works Renegade 1.95x29. It rolls insanely easy and due to a big contact area between tyre and ground it provides lots of traction. For dirty days i have a fast trak 2.0 s-works in stock. But that 1.95 renegade gives me a lot more traction than my 2.1 RocketRon at both 26 HT and epic before. Thats why i dont know the tyre clearance.

    You should be fine with a 2.25 and low tire pressure. I had a 2.1 Ground Control with 18 psi on the rear and 2.2 Purgatory on the front and it had lots of space. Then again I am assuming the clearances are the same on the carbon frames. Another reason I went with a M is because the frame EVO 29 HT is an aluminum frame. Had I went with a S it would have definitely been more rigid and less forgiving. I switched the stem to a 55mm Syntace Flat Force stem, the handlebar to a 740mm Syntace Vector 8 degree sweep -5 degree rise and seat post to a Syntace P6 Hiflex 27.2 400mm and the bike feels pretty good with all the carbon numbing out a lot of the chatter.

    hello guys I've been working a lot so here is the last feedback of the bike

    The best weight I had was 19.3 lb with sw renegade tire rear and a sw fast trak front, xtr 980 pedals, phenom carbon rails saddle and the spectacular TUNE seat post I just love it is perfect!! Light and little flexible is great!!

    I'm a XX1 fan guy today!!!! this thing really works perfect no chain drop no shifter no front der. U just have to shift your cassette nothing more is so simple is so clean NEVER chain drops i'm doing some xc trails and no problem at all
    Yes is little hard but u can play with the rings!!! now I'm using for training the 32t I did a race with this 32t ring and was hard but I haven't train and I was with a flu but I have the 30t to so... THE BIKE with xtr was 20.2 lbs now is 19.3 (19.53 with comp tires) is a great weight!! so happy with xx1 my 2014 bike will be xx1 too

    Stans ZTR crest wheelset is awesome so light and is aluminum I do't have confidence with carbon rims yet!!!

    MY LBS called me today they can order 2014 bikes so I'M DUUDE!!! I really want the new stumpy!!

    NEWS IN 2014: 142 rear spacing, 15mm QR and fork with 90mm!!! frame is more light!! mine in S is 1200g they said the M size is 1050g (so the 2014 frame in S will be 1000g?)

    I donīt have money to buy the complete bike!! so maybe I WILL BUILD the 2014 frameset with the same parts; xx1 group, ztr crest wheelset and xtr brakes!! really don't trust in avid xx I'm really sad I sold my ztr gold wheelset to buy the xx1 group but I will buy another one that wheelset is 1350g is sooo light!!!

    here is a site with a lot of pics of the 2014 bikes so maybe I will se u in my new Building thread "2014 S-WORKS STUMPJUMPER BUILDING THREAD" soon

    My 2013 15.5 S-WORKS stumpjumper HT building thread

    Hi, also a feedback about my bike - its running awesome. I changed a few things:
    - tubes out, notubes milk in
    - mcfk flatbar out, sworks flatbar in
    - specialized stem out, syntace f109 in
    - speedneedle out, phenom pro in
    - tune skewers out, roval sl ti skewers in
    - xx rd out, x.0 in
    - FASI cable set out, sram slickwire in
    - sworks carbon cranks with red decals were moved to my wifes epic expert, i got same cranks but with specialized writing on it (like all the pro's are using!)

    As a result i am now at 8,8 kg or 19,4 lb incl. garmin mount, bottle cage aso. All light components were dropped due to their function and reliability. My bike is just unbelievable. Deels very light, fast responding, smoothly rolling - just perfect. Because of that i have no intention of buying the new 2014 stuff. I am so satisfied that (for the first time since many many years) i dont want anything new - there is no need.

    Tonight i will post some pics.

    Sorry to dig up this thread, but I was referencing it during my latest build. Thanks to all those who contributed, as it was a great help.

    Have my size L at 17.81 lbs / 8.08 kg at the moment:
    New Build - 2013 S-Works Stumpjumper HT

    Would appreciate advice from those who have been running this frame for a while, and in particular I'm curious what you're doing on the rear end in terms of skewer or thru bolt. Thx.
