    So what was the conclusion on the loose CTD lever on your rear Fox shock?? I just picked up a new SJ FSR Comp, and the lever has positive stops in Descend and Trail, but when you try to put it in Climb, it just wobbles all over the place. Asked the LBS about it, and they say that it's normal.... I just figure for 3000 bucks it should be perfect??

    Anyone know of a good wheelset to cut out some rotational weight on these for $500 or under?

    Stopped by my local LBS. She arrived today. A major tease because I cannot take her home until next week!

    My 2013 arrived at my LBS today. Was a major tease since I couldn't take it home yet. Still needs assembled!

    I wish my 2013 FSR Elite 29er was just 15 minutes. 2 full hours including swapping wheels and going tubeless.Skipped lunch too and went riding right away,I was exhausted.
    Worst part ? Command Post. If that day someone would have timed me as a test to land a job in a a bike store I would be living under a bridge right now.
    Also correct cable routing is a pain in the @ss but this time was nothing compared to Command Post. The next day I still had a couple of tune ups to make it perfect.
    Epic 29 was fast,so was my new Flash 29 carbon a week ago,but again I needed to review cable routings the next day.

    Wheels ? Sun Ringles Black Flag Pro 29er. Beating the heck out of them and they're still perfect,very happy about them 440 Euro,I'm sure they come cheaper in the US.

    Bike Shop just e-mailed me this and told me it's ready. Got my work bonus a week earlier than I had thought. Any guess as to where my next stop will be?

    UPDATE on my SJ that you see in the pic above. When I picked up this bike, I am not gonna lie, it felt like a tank.
    I put some ZTR Arch Ex 29ers and a newer light weight cassette and also went tubeless. I am sitting around 28 lbs,4 oz. My Kronolog already pooped the bed so I had to take it off (hope my LBS can fix that for me).
    I got bike plans for this bike. Might take a while since it will spendy but I plan on putting a carbon bar on it, lighter weight pedals and carbon cranks eventually.
    Eventually it'll be about as top spec as you can get without the carbon frame. Here is an initial review I made for it on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLQDkkiUUTI

    Since you've got the dropper post, save another ounce or two and get a standard seat clamp instead of the quick release. Something like a Thomson, Hope or Salsa. That Specialized quick release adds a bit of weight.

    What hubs did you get with the Arches, the Stan's?

    Your money, but I'm sure there are better places to put your money before carbon cranks. I really like what putting a Fox 34 Float at 140mm did to mine.

    A 140 mm fork would be nice, but not sure I need it. Just putting the bike on a diet so far. Will upgrade gradually as I get $$. Gonna be my rig for the next five years or so I am gonna make it as nice as possible without the carbon frame. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    Am looking to fit ztr stans flows on my XL comp carbon - think this should give a reasonable improvement for the money - quoted 250 for the wheelset with halo spin doctor hubs and go tubeless. Update on my rides, no regrets buying it, all pretty good - am faster over rough ground and up hill over obstacles, roots, steps, etc, just need to get used to tight turns and ensure pick line and stick to it, find it doesnt like to be leant into turns at slow speed ( I come off) - dropper post best upgrade so far - maxxis ardents improved traction and confidence on loose hard packed trails over ground control tyres.

    I have gotten my bike down to 27.5 lbs +/- an ounce or two. After I get my carbon cranks on it it should be in the low 27's. Not bad for a bike with this much travel/

    Actually carbon cranks seem like a good investment to me. The specialized carbon cranks are only $250 + spider + rings and weigh significantly less (3-4 oz) than XTR cranks. Havent' heard of anyone breaking them either. This is based on my research last year so maybe something has changed but I was shocked how cheap and good these cranks were.

    I ordered a pair. They are on back order so it will be a couple months but I will get them before Spring riding starts. I heard a guy on this forum who owns a bike shop say they can take up 6-7 ounces of your bike. He said the real beneift was the added stiffness. Never heard of S-works cranks breaking. I plan on putting the rubber boots on just for good measure though.

    Dude, someone is selling you bike on Craigslist in New Haven CT. No joke I was scoping for a Spec Hardrock 29 commuter bike on craigslist and I saw this picture. I knew right away I had seen it here on MTBR...

    NEW NEW 2013 stumpjumper FSR 29 29er

    Should this be reported a scam? You are in Wyoming right??

    Hey John,
    Thanks for warning. Looks like whoever that was just stole my picture. I do live in Wyoming and my bike is very much safe and sound! Perhaps he just wanted a picture of a bike that is similar to his. Either that or he is a serial killer looking to get an MTBR member!

    ...but that price is crazy low for a 2013 FSR, even if it is slightly used. I would be wary about it too...

    I have reported the listing to the cragslist people and flagged the ad.. I hope they can track they guy and bag him. It would be sweet if the New Haven police could "buy" the bike and take the guy into custody. Even though he's only asking $1900, it's grand theft. Hopefully the guy gets caught. Hate to see someone send money and get scammed.
    Or worse, go to see the bike and get mugged or worse.

    I was gonna inquire to the poster about the bike but there was no info or a link to contact him at. Really weird.

    I don't know what these guys are up to - or what type of scam they are running, but I have run into a couple of similar shady deals over the last few months. I exchanged several text messages with one guy. Once I said I would pay cash in person they stopped responding.

    It seems to me they are trying to pull some sort of mail fraud... In both instances the were selling Stumpjumper FSR Comp 29ers, I later found the exact same pictures on other websites being sold from different parts of North America.

    I guess they know the SJ FSR Comp 29ers are a popular model.
