I recently finished building an older 2003 Rockhopper FSR XC (A1 frame). Its a very nice bike and rides well for me. However, I'm kind of interested in the newer Stumpjumpers. I'm just curious what the major benefits would be? Assuming I keep the components similar, would the only difference be the M4/M5 frame? It looks cooler, but other than the weight, are there other benefits?
I'm still kind of a newbie biker so I dont even know if I would notice the differences... If I started shopping for one, I'm not sure what to look for.
Any advice would be appreciated!
edit - the reason I was interested in the stumpjumper was because of the frame and lesser weight.
