    OK stumpjumpers fsr, how do u like your ride?

    please coment what style of riding, what do u like most, what u don't, upgrades if any or planning to do, your last bikes or others, your weight, and if you have the time, post a pic.
    I'm really thinking about the chapest 06 (the red or grey-black) and comming from a 03 enduro need to know what to expect.
    P.S. I tried the Mtbr product reviews but it's all messed up with the year models, suspension travel, etc.
    thanks for your help.

    I sold my stumpy 06 hardtail to get an Stumpy FSR expert 120. It rides a hell of alot better on the technical rocky root infested trails I go on. This is my first full suspension and after paying my dues for years on HT; I thought why not give it a try, sure glad I did. Try to get an 05 at rock bottom price.

    I've put over 1000 miles on my sj120.

    i like it. i like it even better since i got the shock pushed. it handles great, it's light enough, and it's durable. you won't regret it.

    Great Bike Fun to Ride

    I just spent a few hours on my 06 S Works Stumpjumper, it kept a smile on my face the whole time. Did mostly XC around my house/city. The bike is responsive, nice on the body, fast when needed-all around pleasure of a machine. Can take the rough stuff when asked. Good going up and down. I realy like the mechanics of the Horst Link. And a piece of work looks wise- just check out the photo of Icemans Expert-that is cool.

    I come from a Cannondale Prophet and Scalpel which I still ride---the Stumpjumper is a great bike- no worries you will love it.

    best ever

    i came from a hardtail and it was pulling teethe to get this bike last year. over 2000 miles on it. ive upgraded the handlebars, cranks, stem, pedals, pedals, pedals, just recently upgraded to king hubs and 819 rims, new king headset too, seat went fast, shock will be the next thing to get a PUSH. it is in the shop right now. leaking. i get to ride the hardtail....my butt hurts. tubeless should be a nice addition, i dont plan on upgrading this bike until they pry it from my cold dead hands. the last big expense i plan in hitting up will be the stem.stock too short. setback seatpost will put me too far back. this thing is a tank, it can take a hell of a beating. no need for a pic, same bike as above, just a bit dirtier..

    I have had my 06 stumpy expert for 6 months now and have nothing but praise for it. Loves the rocky rooty trails here in Australia. Drops upto 1.5 mtrs are fine (I weigh 86 kgs). Climbs rutted out and tecnical single track really well.

    I have upgraded the wheel set to Sun Ringle SOS camo rims with dice hubs, Candy SL's pedals and a WTB Rocket V saddle . Will be upgrading to carbon seat post and handlebars soon, i may also be talked into a sram drivetrain when mine wears out.

    No matter what model you get you wont be dissapointed.

    Sorry cant get a pic to work. Arrrgh

    I just got my '06 Stumpjumper FSR Expert a month ago and love it! I'll never go back to the HT. It weights just a tick under 28 lbs. for a large and no mods yet. From what I hear around these forums you could get an Expert model near $2499. It seems like a good deal to me. I came from a 2001 stumpy pro model that weighs just under 23 lbs. I don't feel the weight climbing like I thought I would. The downhill is twenty times better, I think the new "slacker" geometry is part of that. I don't race anymore, but I don't see why you couldn't on this.

    Love my 06 stumpy comp

    Just back from an epic Tamrancho ride yesterday (finally a weekend of sun in the Bay Area) and I'm still grinning from ear to ear. Last time I was on that trail was on my old Rockhopper hardtail. What a difference, I was able to clear many of the rocky sections that I walked with the hardtail. The FSR just absorbs everything and and the FOX float is butter, just butter smoothe. I have done a few upgrades, Thompson stem and seatpost, WTB seat, Ouri lock-on grips. Next on the wish list is King headset and the tires are wearing a bit. I'm 230 lbs and the frame has never flexed, and nothing has broken. I highly recommend this bike for aggressive singletrack trails, steep decents and techy rock gardens. Don't be afraid of the comp. or base models, they can fit your budget and you can upgrade all the small parts as they wear-out (they won't break). Enjoy!!

    Reply to KramRam E-mail questions re: Brain and Cables

    KramRam, I received your e-mail re: my S-works but was unable to respond-mtb. says your e-mail is disabled. To answer your questions- my S-works is the Carbon model and I could not be more pleased with bike so far. Have had the bike on a pretty good trail up in north Georgia that was a good mix of XC fire roads and medium mountain terrain with rock and technical and the bike did great. I am more into the XC than the technical and man did the Stump eat up the XC- but bike could do either well in IMHO. The Brain fade has taken some time to tune in, (trial and error and personal preference) but now is riding great. I weigh 180 and have the shock set at 195 psi which is top end under reccomendations from Fox. I prefer a medium firm suspension and have the Brain set a few clicks(3-4) out from firm.

    As far as the cable routings under the frame I am not into every mud obstacle through a river kind of rider and have not had any problems with collecting excess debris under cables. Just the usual stuff that can be washed off with a hose after ride. I come from Cannondale Scalpel/Prophet bikes which I still ride. I can highly reccomend the Stump in either Al or Carbon you will not be dissapointed, it is a great bike-good luck. Let me know if I can help further. Cheers.

    I have just received my 06' FSR 120 and for a great deal. ($2100.00)
    With pedals it comes in at or just under 28lbs. I have a complete King wheelset on order and other than that I think the only other up grade will be lighter stem (stock is 175) and bars (stock 220). The ride is just awesome. I still have an 03' Tomac 98 special and the FSR just blow that out of the water. I can not wait to put some long rides on this thing!!

    I have a 2004 Stumpjumper FSR, which I think it's a pretty cool ride. It is very stable, plush yet you don't feel like floating. Unfortunately, I'm selling it, and someone already offered to buy it.

    Sniff!!! missing it already.

    The reason for the sell is because I've bought a Titus Moto Lite, and both are pretty similar (HL, all-mountain bikes). I would love to keep both, but one had to go.......

    I bought my first FS the '06 SJ FSR in gray.
    I ride rocky gnarly rooty trails with a lot of rough climbing over same.
    I was absolutely flabbergasted by the ProPedal. My first ride I had to stand on the pedals
    on a steep climb and did not notice any bob. If it was there, I couldn't tell.
    The 120mm travel and the Avid BB7s are super!

    The SJ is surprisingly light. Probably around 28 lbs.
    I did change the grips to Odi Ruffian lock-ons, different pedals and added the mudflap shock protector.
    But for now I can't see anything on the SJ I'd want to upgrade.
    I love it! Definitely 5 Chili Peppers!

    I think you may have taken a picture of my bike and helmet and shoes by accident. No seriously I have all the same shiz. I have upgraded the drivetrain to all Sram X9, Thompson post and stem, Easton Monkey Lite Carbon bar, and Time Carbon pedals. Next on the list is the wheel set. I just bought mine two weeks ago and have only had two chances to ride it so I can't give a great review but I will say this.

    1. Specialized has it together on their rear suspension it pedals great with little to no pedal bob but is very active on downhill and under braking.

    2. My bike only weighs 26 LBS coming from a 42 LB DH bike it feels like a feather.

    3. I wanted a good trail bike with ample suspension. I ride a lot of enduro type rides, long with lots of climbing and hopefully even more downhill.

    Seriously two weeks ago I was in your shoes and I would definitely say go for it. The Stumpy is a great all around trail bike.

    Is buying a SJ FSR a mistake?

    it seems like nobody comes from an enduro (130mm)

    would it be because it's almost the same or because the old enduro it's better? that got me thinking...

    I loved my '03 Stumpjumper FSR Comp until I found the linkage was broken today, and I've got the Ouachita Challenge to ride this weekend. Rear suspension seems fragile, not the first trouble I've had with it. Slack in the rear end, broken shock bolt, now the linkage has cracked almost in two. I love the way it rides though. Great on the downhills, climbs like a mountain goat, handles the technical stuff like a dream. I'm sure gonna miss it this weekend when I'm stuck on that hardtail for 6 hours.

    06 FSR Pro

    Went from an old, reworked, Raleigh M80 hardtail to an JS FSR Pro. Talking about going from a horseless carriage to the 21st century. Kinda overkill for my level currently, but hell, you only live once, and I had the money. I'm 5'10, 185 and bought a medium. It's been everything and more.

    Ride Michigan, so its flats and hills.

    Keep an eye on that link. Mine cracked on my 99 FSR XC. Went to the BETD, much better quality and more options for set up.

    BTW: is that a large stumpy or a 00-01 Enduro?

    wick,

    i am deciding between a stumpie, prophet & giant reign. can you give me some info on the ride comparison between the sj & prophet? what type of trails do you ride, and what is your riding style? i live in northern nj, which is infamous for the rocky terrain and baby head gardens.

    Question for everyone: I currently ride a 1998 FSR modfied with a BETD link and a Pushed 6.75 X 1.75 Vanilla R shock. With a 3.33:1 compression ratio, I get ~5.8 inches of rear travel. However, I am thinking of getting a Stumpy 120. Will I regret it?

    Here is my bike:

    Here is my bike:

    Get the new one! It pedals soooooo much better. You would loose some travel but with the new shocks and what not, since your bike, you wouldn't even notice. I hated Specialized for years because of that bike you are currently on because it pedals so poorly but when I tried the new 120 much to my dismay I love it and now it is in my basement waiting to be ridden.

    scroll down to the bottom for the link for your frame. I loved that frame with the link. I was running 130 front and back, and the bike weighed 26.5lbs.

    Here's a pic. I thought it had a cracked seatpost last year, sent it to S , they said no, but the the frame was damaged in shipping back to me. They replaced with an 04 Stumpy 100.

    The link is pricey, but well worth it. 3 travel settings and two BB hgt settings. You will need Propedal in the 130 mode, but preferably a Pushed float R would work the best.

    BTW: I see that it is a Stumpy now by the FD cable guide.

    I'm totally convinced now I'm buying the Stumpy... but

    Well everyone's discriptions and photo's have really made my mind up.. Im finally making the switch from Hardtail to dual suspension and going for the Expert. The only proplem is there is a six week wait here in Sydney Australia.

    I have a mate coming back from US so does anyone recommend a bike shop near South Carolina. I'm thinking of getting him to bring one back.. A Silver one at that cos we can only get brown here.

    $2499 is the cheapest I've found.. Am I on the right track for price too.

    Would appreciate some suggestions

    Cheers

    Carl

    Do you think that all these symptoms:

    Slack in the rear end, broken shock bolt, now the linkage has cracked almost in two.
    could be related? Slack in the rear end could be loose bolts, which were later broken and could have led to a cracked linkage.

    I have a 05 SJ 120 and have had problems with the bushings wearing out. One thing the shop said was to watch out for the bolts loosening as that will lead to more wear and tear.

    Just a thought...

    Hi Guys,

    You have given me great info on the stumpy. Just one quick question. Has anyone ridden the Giant Trance and how does it compare to the Stumpjumper? And Mod 04 is that 2499AUD as I live in Sydney and would be interested on some more info.

    Thanks in advance

    I have tested a Trance 4 in a parking lot, so it's really not much significant. I liked how it rotated (the Trance), but I still prefer the Stumpjumper. It's not that one is good and one bad, but one great and the other greater, IMHO...

    USD$2,499 I'd be jumping at that if it was AUD too.. The cheapest 06SJ I found was a store in Brisbane for 3,199, I think that was a one off because there prices are back up to normal retail price.

    Some places will give you around 10% off if using cash.. At the end of the day your getting bang for your buck compared to similar bikes around the same value but the components are better.

    I had a look at the Trance too but I'm going for SJ Expert instead.. I just have to wait for the next shipment to get to AUS.

    Good luck.

    I have a 05 SJ 120 and have had problems with the bushings wearing out. One thing the shop said was to watch out for the bolts loosening as that will lead to more wear and tear.

    Just a thought...
    I think they are all related, but not exactly like that. All the bolts are tight. All the pivots are good. The slack was there even with all the bolts tight. But you're right, I believe the bolt broke because of the slack, and the linkage cracked because of the same thing. Spec. warrantied the linkage, and I've got a new shock bolt, but there's still slack!!! I can't figure it out. I know for sure where the slack is coming from: the bottom shock mount. I believe it's either the aluminum spacers on either side of the shock that the lower bolt goes through, or the small bushing(?) that presses into the shock in the lower mounting hole. Anybody experienced this before? I've got the new bushing that presses into the shock, just got to figure out how to change it. Sucks when the nearest Specialized dealer is 2 hours away. Any help would be appreciated. I may start a new thread, but won't if I don't have to....

    ... and if we just ... My pride and joy

    Here's my size L ´05 Expert 120 in Central European gray color:


    Weight 12.2kg / 26.9lb. When the snow melts I'll change to Nobby Nics which will drop the weight to 26.5lb / 12.0kg.

    I've upgraded most of the components with lighter ones. I'm happy with the Septune and I think it's wide range of adjustment suits the Talas fork very well. For easier terrain and longer distances I usually keep the Septune at 7 and the fork at 90mm.

    My only complaints is that the BB could be a bit higher. Maybe 7-10mm.

    I love mine to bits. I do xc and trail stuff (nothing mega extreme, but often use full suss travel). I used it for a few endurance races last year and its so nice for that. Will be doing a 12h and a 24 hour solo in it this year aswell.

    Mine weighs in at 25.5lb at the moment. I am going to be putting a rohloff speedhub on there when it turns up, which will add some weight. But I hate derailures hehe.

    here is a link to a piccy (bit big to show directly)

    02 Stumpies...great bikes!

    I got one and it's my do all favorite bike. I' love to get a new one but can't afford it right now. But I'm considering upgrading to a new slightly longer front fork and...after that...disc brakes for the one I have now. Anyone else do that to their 02 bikes? I'm looking for ideas and opinions...

    Are there any differences in the 05's and the 06's?

    Took my '04 for a spin yesterday after work, beautiful!

    Some people think owning a jet plane is rich. Riding from your house to the trail, then back, is rich.
