    I also have a '13 Evo and the fix for me was going to a 6" rear rotor. All parts were sent free of charge from Sram.

    I was going to do that but the Brain doesn't provide enough space for a bigger rotor.

    6" is a smaller rotor for the Evo. It originally comes speced with a 7" rear.

    Hi,
    I have a 2010 large frame Specialized Stumpjumper fsr elite.
    As a lot of people through out the world I had frame vibration issues.
    Just recently I was able to solve this problem. I've done everything, I've contacted Formula (my brakes are Formula RX 2011 with original pads and rotors) and followed all the instructions that were given with no result. I've sent my bike to different bicycle shops in Lisbon and no one as a clue of the resolution for this issue - everyone (from Formula itself to bike experts) thought this vibration was caused by the brake system.
    After a lot of mistakes and time spent around the problem I started to ask that the problem itself is caused by the frame - for what I've searched a lot of your models have this issue.
    I've verified all possible leaks (bearings, rear suspension, etc) and everything was good. Then I realized this was due to resonance frequency (the relation between the brake system and the frame itself) - although this is thought to be solved with the replacement of the brake system, other people with the same frame as mine but with different brakes still have this problem.
    The solution is to modify the brake system cable from the normal setting to a more direct "straight" way (as you can see in the photos bellow).

    I have been cycling with no vibration since this modification.
