    New Stumpy 29er

    Spec. has a 29er Stumpjumper at Sea Otter. Pictures are on Cyclingnews. Here's the link.

    I guess the official announcement isn't too far off.

    It looks terrible.

    You need the 8" rotors to complete the image.
    Riding and loving it

    Yeah, looks weird with tiny rotors in that picture. Maybe its just that angle. I'm not a huge 29'er fan personally but that isn't the best of looking ones that I've ever seen.

    Looks pretty cool to me. I'm not a 29'er fan myself also, but it doesn't look bad.

    It would have been even sweeter if they paired it with that new fox 29er fork...

    It will look better when they slap their AFR and Brain on. I think the 29 revolution isn't a fad. I almost wish I had a waited a year for the Enduro to go 29. Then again, I'm really having too much fun with my 26er.

    I don't think the Enduro will never go 29er, with six inches of travel + 29er wheels = ridiculously high handle bars, bottom bracket, and center of mass.

    I hope you are right. I'd be disappointed if this geometry lasts only a year.

    I agree with your comments. I feel like I'm on a horse when I ride this bike, and this horse is getting better at plowing over obstacles every week.

    I kind of like it. I have a 06' Stumpy HT and I just purchased my first 29er. I can tell you from first hand experience that I will never go back to a 26. For my riding style the 29er is great.
