    I always thought that I would replace it at some stage, but as I'am fairly talent less and mainly just roll around keeping my wheels on the ground I went the up grade route instead. Picked up a new set of wheels awhile back, and the last few months I have replaced the fork, bars, stem, saddle and added a dropper post.

    New fork and new tyres as well.

    Dropper post and new fabric saddle.

    I have seen good reviews on the Fabric saddles and came across one in one of my local LBS and at $80 dollars well worth a try. This one is a Scoop Shallow it felt great after a four hour ride first time out. Then yesterday walking past another LBS they had stock of the Fabric's too (local rep must be working overtime ) They had the Scoop Radius which was the one I had really wanted to try, o'well whats another $80

    Attachment 1077543

    Had a quick one and half hour ride on this today and its the pick of the two on this bike. The Shallow is now on my hardtail MB, its a little more stretched out riding position and it seems a good match after a quick spin around the block.

    A 1x11 setup is next on the list, that will leave just the frame and rear shock from the original bike.

    The new Specialised bikes that I like the look of would cost me a fair penny and not really add to much to my type of local riding. I'am lucky enough to have single track like this starting a few hundred meters from home.

    So the FSR Xc should see a few more years service yet.

    Thanks for the inspiration.
    Looks damn good!!

    Make sure you zip tie the hatch cover that houses the cable release. They are notorious for popping out. Did on mine.

    Recently sold my Airborne Seeker and got a 2014 Stumpy FSR Comp that was setup with 2x10 XTR, SLX brakes, and ZTR crests @ 27.05lb.
    Waiting for some parts to arrive but going XT 1x11 11-42, X1 1400 direct mount crankset, custom WTB Freq i23/BHS wheels and a couple other items, should still be low-mid 27lb. This thing is so much fun! Will post pics when completed.

    New rubber for autumn:
    Spec Butcher grid front, Maxxis beaver 2,25 back
    Here is a little review and why i put almost the same tires to my Camber Evo 29 again.
    First i was very impressed how long the Spec tires least, the front Butcher was the first and it held 3 years Now i gone with the grid tire because it is softer than the control, the testride yesterday on my hometrails was nice and i think i could corner better (maybe the tire was new but the tread feels softer). The beaver was only one year old but it is way better than the Purgatory (which held 2 years) in muddy conditions, i almost never spin the back wheel in soft, muddy conditions, the Purgatory isn't bad but spins more. The best thing is the beaver rolls better too, because of the middle kobs. So i'm not worried if this tire only leasts one year, in the muddy season it ist nice grippy and in dry conditons when it is a litte worn it rolls nice.
    Also put a 200 mm SLX rotor in the front as a replacement for the 180 mm deore.
    For your information: I live in Germany, ride about 1000 km the year and also in the alps for holidays

    I only have a Specialized Pitch 2017, a pretty basic bike because I'm kinda new in mountain biking, it came with a Suntour XCM suspension that I didn't really like and this week I changed if for a Suontour Epixon, really great upgrade. Now I want to change those plastic pedals, any sugestions? no clipless...

    Brand new bike, set it all up, and flicked the stock tyres for lighter Maxxis Forekaster 2.35 and Ardent Race 2.2, then took it out on some loose and rocky singletrack.

    Dumb question here . Guys at the shop told me i could not run grips other than factory on my stump jumper due to the dropper post lever clamping around the factory grip ... I bought ODI double lock grips just so i could 86 the factory grips and add a little extra cushion due to me being old and worn out ..

    cut the stock grip the same width as the dropper post lever. Place it next to your new grips. That worked for me.

    The Eagle has landed.

    Upgraded to a Wolftooth 42 a few months ago but it just didn't shift like I thought it would, sooooooo....... I upgraded to a Sram Eagle 1 x 12. Nice smooth shift to the 50 tooth. Much better.

    In the Last Month or so since picking up my 17 Camber Comp:

    -Spesh IR dropper

    -KS dropper lever

    -RF Chester platforms

    -One up components 32T oval ring

    -Converted stock rims/tires to tubeless

    -Easton Haven stem and carbon bar

    -WTB Pure Pro saddle

    -Frame pump and bottle cage

    -Togs

    -Mudguards

    -29.1 lbs without bottle and pump

    Next will probably be new tires as I have a sidewall tear that slowly leaks in the rear, Stans wont seem to seal it completely. (reason for the frame pump)

    Can you get an XD driver for the stock hub or did you have to get a new hub and/or wheel? I was thinking about going 1x11 via XD driver but thought I read somewhere the hubs didn't have one available.

    You may need new hubs.
    I built new wheels for my 2016 Fuse Expert, Nextie Jungle Fox 52 on Sram900 Boost XD.
    Then I had to install a new GX11 with XO cassette!
    Fuse weighs in at 27 with tubeless Bulldozer 3.0 installed.

    Hand-me-down tires.

    Got a deal on some new tires for the other 26'r and put the old 2.2 on the front of this one. Also, took a bit of time cleaning up the wheel hub and rims. No more fender clearance and time to do the rear wheel cleaning and tire swap now. The 2.2 rode nice on the other bike and these will replace skinny city tires that are a bit harsh for the old man-rider.


    In the Middle Ages, the biggest mistake was not putting on your armor because you were 'just going down to the corner.'

    Put on DHF/DHR2 and went shorter and wider on bar/stem with an Easton Havoc 35 50mm and Race Face Sixc 35, cut to 780mm. Should be a bit more stable on the descents now.What's The Latest Thing You've Done To Your Specialized Bike?-img_2602.jpgWhat's The Latest Thing You've Done To Your Specialized Bike?-img_2601.jpg

    Picked up this Stumpjumper aluminum 29er single speed hardtail as "for parts or repair" from local CL. Adjusting the brakes, replacing some of the seized nipples,...etc. My first 29er. I am excited.

    Only picked her up on Sunday, but immediately swapped a few parts over from my old bike.

    XT M8000 front brake/lever directly swapped over (rear happening today when hose shows up)
    Race Face Chester pedals
    light/pump/saddle bag slapped on

    I don't imagine I'll need to do much else to it for quite a while as I get used to a whole new setup (coming from a Novara 26in hard tail.)

    Hail from Portugal,
    This is my Specialized, a 2001 Stumpjumper FSR XC Comp

    I've done some modifications and upgrades: rear and front disc brakes, changed the suspension - Rear Shock and fron suspension and the last modifications were the wheels - the rear hub was gone so I had to change to a DT Swiss.

    The next modifications will be changinng the Bottom Bracket, if and when I manage to remove it
