    My new 2011 Stumpy 29er EVO HT

    Not sure if anyone has posted one up yet.. so here is mine.
    15.5 (small frame), 24.12 lbs with the pedals shown.

    I really dislike the handle bars and grips... they will be the first to go. This is my first dabble in the world of gears for over 3 years, so far, so good!

    Enjoy!

    Is it me.....but the frame doesn't look like the stumpy evo 29er frame on the website? Is the small frame a different style? Without the curved top tube?
    I'd rather be hated for what I am, than loved for what I'm not......Dolemite.

    It isn't like the website, this is the 15.5 frame size.. it's for us short people that need stand over height. It rides really good though. I am going to do 50ish miles on it tomorrow!

    I put 40 miles on it today.. I am getting blacksheep bars and new saddle. Outside of more air in the tires and going tubeless.. I can't complain. This bike is pretty awesome!

    The 29" SJ HT Evo is the bike I'm going to drool over all year round... maybe I'll pull the trigger? Ugh.

    Let me contribute to the temptation then!

    Just got mine as well - large frame. Pics were taken just after her inaugural ride. I love it!

    I've had my eye on this bike too. Debating between and M or L frame. Normally I ride a medium stumpjumper 26 incher, but am worried that with 29 inch it will feel too big. I'm just over 5'9". Any suggestions.

    We are in very similar situations then. I'm 5'11", and was on the fence about stepping up to a 19". Luckily, my shop had the 29er EVO in 17.5" for me to ride, after which it was clear the medium was definitely too cramped for me. I am all arms and legs though so YMMV. I also have a medium Stumpy FSR, on which I needed a setback post to fit, not so on the 19" EVO.

    Fit-wise, the bike is a good fit for me as is, but I am temped to try a shorter stem - though I really like how responsive the front end is with the current setup. Decisions, decisions...


    As far as feel, size-wise, the bike doesn't feel as big as it looks - and that was even stepping up to a size bigger than I am used to. Make no mistake though, next to my 26" bike it looks like a monster truck by comparison. Very deceptive.


    For comparison, here is a pic of my Stumpy FSR:

    They had one at the LBS yesterday when I went in... built up and in my size. I didn't even go look at it.

    Instead I drowned my tears in about a grand worth of parts ordered - lulz. The woman would kill me for coming home with a new bike. Much easier for new parts on my current bike to not get noticed.

    Still... I want.

    Does anyone know what EVO means? Is it pronounced "E. V. O." or "Evo?" Just curious, because I plan to get one for next season myself, and think I should know at least that much about it!

    i've been told the EVO is a lighter frame, kind of like when the rockhopper came out with the SL line. Im not sure how true that is though. Either way i think the EVO HT is a badarse machine and i hope to own one sooooooon

    The frames are the same on the EVO line, it's the different part's spec. that differentiates them.

    What was the cost for this bike, I've seen from $1850-2050.

    Any new SJ Evo HT reports? I have my eye seriously on a large and recently got to test ride one. Was it me or did the rise on the stem seem to high? Almost as if the stem was put on upside down.

    Nice bike! My brother just ordered an XL from our local shop. BTW, I dig the Gretsch in the background

    Can any of you EVO owners tell me if the cranks are drilled for a granny ring?
