    Wait ONLY the Stumpjumper carbon frame has 130mm

    Is this right? Am I reading the specialized site correctly?

    I was hoping the pro model had 130 also but I guess 120mm is almost the same.

    If you look at last year's models and compare them with this years 120's, the angles and lengths of all the tubes are the same.

    Back is 120mm, front is 130mm on the Aluminum models. Only the carbon frames get the extra 10mm of travel. Note sure about bottom bracket height. Would guess so...

    dammit! what's the world comming to when people who cannot afford a carbon frame are forced to cope with 10mm less travel?!!?!?

    the carbon frame is nearly a half pound lighter too!


    god.... is anybody here planning to buy one of those things? 7 grand..... I'd buy a titus and a turner for that price and keep the one i liked more.

    or a stumpjumper and a tricross...

    or jesus, lots of things.

    and I like expensive bike stuff just for the record.

    sure is pretty though.

    I know, it would be nice.... (good thing I'm single and won't get crap for spending that money)

    haha lets see how big my end of the year bonus is. Otherwise I'll probably wait till someone's selling a used one on ebay. It is kinda hard to justify though when that new ALL carbon Ibis frame with 5 in of travel is under $2000
