    My 2013 15.5 S-WORKS stumpjumper HT building thread

    Hello!!! finally I have the frameset!! is a 2013 stumpjumper s-works ht 29er 15.5"

    Here are some pics!! and the official weight of the frame

    Frame small 15.5": 1120gr (no bb, no headset, just the seatpost clamp)
    Brain fork carbon: 1470gr
    stan's Ztr race gold wheelset: 1350 (pair) (620 front...730 rear)

    I have a problem with the seatpost and please guys u have to help me with this I bought a TUNE SCHWARZES STUCK CARBON 27.2 seatpost (120gr) from a bike shop in germany but I bought it too long a 400mm seatpost with a maximun insertion depth of 170mm is the wrong size for me!!! I need a 350mm so the 400mm tune seatpost have to go I will post it in ebay if any one is interested please let me know!!!

    @erichwic I only can stick it 170mm. I took measures from my other bikes and the clamp will be at 170mm too!! so it will be at the limit with no option tho introduce it more. This is just an idea of the final height of the seatpost, if I need to stick it more the seatpost will broke because over the 170mm is not reinforced.

    You should just give the frame to TiGeo since you're having seatpost issues...

    Hi andresco, finally your thread started. Congrats to this beauty.

    About the post - i am from germany. Where did you buy it? Many stores here are very kind and maybe they still take it back? Did you insert it - are there insertion marks at the surface? When did you buy it? I will order a 350mm too, so i do not need it. But a tune seatpost should be easily sold on eBay for a good price as they are more rare in the US than in germany for example.

    Have fun building the bike. If you are not extremly interested in a carbon post you can use the shown KCNC Ti Pro Lite. As 27.2x350 it should be around 130 g for only a little money compared to a tune post. To have it really light you must choose MCFK, AX Lightness or Schmolke. All are around 100-110 g.

    By the way - your wheelset is 100 g ligher than mine - i have a SL29 on order, already lying at my LBS.

    How tall are you? Which inseam? Which final weight is your goal?

    Edit: MORE PICS!!!!

    @andresco: would you please measure the height of the upper part of the seat tube where the clamp is mounted? There is a smaller part at the top which is a little wider than the tube itself. I need this height to order a perfectly fitting custom carbon seatpost clamp! THX.

    The bike is in my LBS so I will send to you the measure of that part!!

    Definitely the TUNE seatpost won't work for me the insertion depth is too short!!

    I bought the seatpost in WF bikes parts is in Denkendorf!! And my seatpost is in ebay right now!!

    I ordered a 350 from r2bike ....I love a carbon seatpost so the choose will be Tune
    I do not like the kcnc is an S-Works bro and I do not trust in the cradle of the ti pro, in case I want to install a carbon railed saddle... AX lightness and Schmolke are too expensive.. and I really like the clamp system of the Tune, the cradle have more contact surface than the lightness so the saddle won't slip!! and it looks very strong the weight limit is 100kg and I weight 60kg it will never break!!!

    My goal is 19lb with pedals I will post all the parts with weights!!
    I bought a 29 ztr Crest wheelset too..... the gold wheelset are only for racing!!!

    Single ring 38t? Wow, you are either very strong or live in an area with very few hills.
