SS Stumpy S-Works reviews?
Hi, Anyone have a 2010 SingleSpeed S-Works Stumpy Carbon hardtail that has ridden it for a little and would like to give a quick review (or long)?
I have an oppertunity to pick one up but would like to here a few comments from other riders before pulling the trigger. I am trying to compare it to my Niner One9 and might just wait for the Niner Air9 carbon. So help me out.

I dont have the Carbon one, after riding the alloy one that i have, i want the carbon version in the worst way. For me the geo is spot on, and the bike rides great, so i am guessing the carbon is just as smooth as my carbon geared stumpy.
I will say that the guys i ride with have One9's and they are jealous of the ebb on my alloy stumpy....but your soon to be carbon one will have track drop outs with tensioners. Ok i am jealous, i tried to get one and it appeared that they were sold out!
Jut8, you got a weight on the alloy ss? How's the ride? I'm thinking of switching from rigid/steel to alloy/fs while trying to stay close to my current 23lb bike weight.

Yes, i just weighed it this morning on my feedback sports ultimate scale, and i was surprised, with my pedals, waterbottle cages and computer it weighed in at 22.75lbs. Here is my build:
Stumpy SS Alloy Frame w/cane creek integrated headset
Reba SL 29er fork
Truvativ Stylo Crank 32t chainring
Candy Ti Pedals
KMC 8 Speed Chain
Surley 20t cog
DT Wheelset from my Stumpy Expert Carbon
Purgatory 2.2 front and Fast Trak 2.0 rear tire (tubeless)
Specialized 105mm pro stem
Specialized 660mm Alloy Flat bar
Bontrager Foam Grips
Avid Ultimate Brakes 160mm front and rear
Toupe Ti Saddle
Bontrager Alloy Water Bottle Cages
Specialized Speedzone Wireless Computer
It is one sweet ride, i think their Alloy Frame rides just as smooth as some other companies carbon frame, and the EBB is simple, lightweight, and silent.
