    Stump 08 Post your pics here!

    Hi all, I've been lurking here for a while now, but picked up my new stumpy comp 08 last week and thought I'd stick some pictures up.

    I think the new stumpies look fantastic - but maybe i'm biased!





    Lets see your Stumpy 08...

    Haha, they're pretty mean. I got them years ago, but haven't found anything as good since. I think they are called sharkbites or something. I guess the damage they do to your legs if things go wrong are similar.

    Seems really nice so far, but only riden it around the street, testing it in anger on saturday provided the snow has gone!

    It's from the camera. Or the lens to be more accurate (f1.8 aperture).

    Nice bike!
    I think the rims and white fork really make that bike look great, nice job turning the colour scheme into something decent.

    It seems to me these new '08 Stumpjumpers are far more XC orientated than '07 - more All-mountain

    Still nice machines though...

    Well i should place the order for my comp by the end of this week, can the original poster fix his pictures? I am getting my bike in the same color as that one and was looking for some extra motivation while I'm working.

    well i finally got mine, i'll post a pic soon. Sweet ride! Sucks that the first day i get to ride the trails are muddy so i can't really compare to my previous Hardrock.

    I got a Comp btw and put X9 shifters, Truvativ Stylo 3.3 crank, Arione saddle, and the KMC X9Sl chain. It should be tubeless soon.

    Weight as of now, Large, 27.05 with Eggbeater C's.

    I want to get rid of the quick release on the seat post. What do you guys recommend. Not looking for the most expensive/lightest option but something reasonable.

    My silver/black 08 FSR Comp is sitting at the LBS waiting for me to pick it up one day this week. I can't get over how much better these bikes look in person than in the side shots Spec shows in their catalog and on the website.
    I'll get some pictures up from more favorable angles when I get it home, probably Thursday. Then some action shots next weekend.

    I picked this Comp up a few days ago. Swapped the headset for a black CK before leaving the building, which makes the colors tolerable. Aside from the headset and my XT pedals, it's stock. I think I'm going to try a post with a bit of setback, which will further help the aesthetics.

    I rode it for 90 minutes yesterday, battling the snowy NE trails. It's the only time I can recall being grateful for snowmobiles - They compacted the snow enough to get occasional grip. It was an exercise in maintaining traction and balance. I learned a lot about the bike, but I can't wait for the snow to melt so I can do some real riding.

    it's a medium. unfortunately i don't know the weight because i don't have a digital scale. i'm taking it into the shop today to install the bottom bracket; i tried to install it myself but it seems too tight (i think it needs to be braced) and i don't want to screw anything up. anyway, if they have a scale i'll weigh it....

    UPDATE:

    no go on the scale but i do have the bottom bracket installed; they were very cool about it. i'll be taking it back to have the headset installed next....

    QUEEN CITY CYCLES - in springfield mo. they don't sell spec's but are right down the street from me and great people. the spec dealer (who i also like) couldn't see my bike until Fri

    Swwwweeeeet bike dude!

    Did you change the stem to a Ritchey or did it come like that? And what about the laid back seat post? Tyres ? (I have S-Works the Captain on my Pro not Scwalbe).

    Did it come with that fork as well? I thought the Pro's came with the Futureshock - Spesh's own make? You're lucky to have that fork, I've got it on my hardtail and I like it better than the Futureshock (whose Brain seems to be retarded)...

    Seriously nice bike.

    Spencer…
    Do you seriously see Specialized sending a bike out with kit that nice, he’s obviously been to some expense to ensure he has nothing but the best on there and reliable parts too.

    Thaaanks guy!

    I purchased a SJ PRO 2008 frame, and buy the rest of components in bike-discount.de, a german shop with good prices.

    The Thomson back seat post its perfect for me, fits very good with my large legs.
    Tyres are espectacular, Schwalbe is a very good brand from Germany, and 2008 models with triple compound are fantastic, tubeless of course.

    I have the fork (a Revelation 426 Air UTurn) of my old bike, a Orbea Zeus hardtail, with its 130 cm fits perfect in the Stumpjumper frame and it works awesome.

    All parts list:

    Peso = weight (in grams)

    build finished

    I finished putting my new bike together. I bought the frame at my LBS but got most of the components off ebay. It ended up saving me well over $1000.

    I stuck with many of the components that come on a pre-configured model since they were plentiful and fairly cheap. First pics (sorry for low quality, they were taken on with my phone), then specs:

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/417markg/2329787146/" title="new bike right view by 417markg, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2412/2329787146_06ec4e8470_b.jpg" width="1024" height="768" alt="new bike right view" /></a>

    The front wheel has 203mm brakes, and the rear 160mm. I have the 180 rotor for the rear but i'm waiting on a bracket I had to order.

    Nice

    Very nice bike 417Markg - and I think you have a better choice of fork than the top of the range model! (more functionality anyway).

    What size is it and how much does it weigh?

    Thanks! It's a medium and I don't know the weight. I need to get a scale; I've never thought much about weight but this is the first bike I've had where weight would matter. It feels light though I put armadillo tires w/ gel tubes on it because I HATE fixing flats (especially since it's muddy now) and where I ride there are LOTS of thorns; but that adds a bit of weight.

    I took it out today for it's first real trail ride and it handles wonderfully! It feels very crisp. I had so much fun. On my other bike (a Rockhopper Comp) I would go up certain hills and feel exhausted when I reached the top, but tonight on those same hills I was tired but not exhausted; I still had some left in the tank. I guess that's what the extra bucks get you.....

    Man, where's the love for Stumpys with big wheels?



    With the Kenda Small Block 8s, it's dead on 28lbs. The WTBs add a lot, not sure how much just yet....

    Save more weight

    417Mark - I also have lots of thorns where I am. I used to use gell tubes too. If you convert to tubeless from those slime tubes you can save almost 2 lbs in weight - it's unbelievable how heavy they are - and still have puncture proof tyres. And rotating weight is the worst kind. I couldn't believe the difference in handling after going tubeless.

    Looks like you found some mud on the south Downs, the sticky kind too.

    good location spotting, but where is the bike now, anyone?



    also is it okay to drill the valve holes in the rims to fit car-type valves?

    Yes you can drill your rims to fit schraeder valves. If you were to go tubeless the Stan's video recommends you do this to allow the rim strip to sit tighter in the rim. This is not your concern, but the point is it tells me much research has gone into the fact that drilling the hole bigger (to 3/8") does not weaken the rim materially, and I have done it with two wheelsets already with no adverse consequences - and I ride hard.

    I'll take a flier and say by the look of the grass and trail sign your photo is at one of the entrances to Swinley Forrest in the south east of the UK - but there ain't much detail so it's a big guess...

    Orange 08

    I picked up my bike in January and have been enjoying it ever since. I have seen a couple of the silver blue combo bikes around but no other orange one yet.

    Nice pics. The silver/black 08 comp definitely looks much better in the pics you guys posted than the pic at specialized site shows, I can see myself getting one soon.

    Right before the first ride....probably will never look that clean again !! The bike shop owner did me a SOLID by putting on after market Fox fork at no extra charge (shout out to Higher Ground, Tallahassee, FL ). Same F series with RLC and 120mm travel, just wanted the White fork and Orange color instead of OE black fork....everything else is stock.

    very nice @ shoes! I was thinking about asking for the swap to the white fork too but stuck with the black myself.

    Here's my new addition to the family...

    That is SO bizarre. I've been looking at these Stumpy pics for 18 months and with your XXL, I've just now noticed that the top and bottom tubes are not joined together. Is that a first?

    It looks very......um.......tubular.

    Cool bikes ya'll.

    That's not a first. Starting with the L, the tubes are not joined. It's just a size thing. They are joined on the M and smaller models.

    Sure enough. I just had to go up a couple of pics and found some joined. Eallan's just threw me for a loop. I like how on his, the shape seems to start at the very very back, and flows gently to the front. Sort of like a Titus Mojo perhaps.

    If it's not a Stumpjuro it's an Endumper!

    Cool bananas - I bet you struggle to keep both wheels down up the steep slopes though.

    I wonder what Spesh would say...

    Stumpduro..lol! I like that!

    I just built it up last night only did some driveway/street checks on it, will ride on trails tonight. I had this fork on a 2002 Spec Enduro which has 5.2" rear travel (130mm) and it worked well, and I have one of these forks on my 4" rear travel Ventana El Saltamontes and it works well, so should work similarly with the Stumpy frame. I have the tubes slid up in the triple clamps as high as I can go so as not to affect the head angle too much, and run about 40mm front sag (27% of travel) so those two things offset the 30mm spec'd difference between the E150 fork and the Stumpy Pro's Fox Float 120. The nice thing is the travel adjust on the E150 to reduce the travel by 40mm to help going up hills and/or on technical single track stuff.

    Yeah it's good looking, but you're stuck with that shock...if it blows out you have to get another shock...the same exact kind even if it sucks.

    Kinda like when you buy an e-machines computer and you want to add some RAM or something.
