    Will my Stumpy hold up?

    I am learning to bunny hop on my new Specialized Stumpjumper Comp 29er. I usually try it in a grassy field 10 15 times after I am done riding the trail. It might be a silly question, but I would like to know if my bike would hold up for this. I am under the impression that these bikes are light and fast but not as sturdy? Will the wheels be alright? It has the Custom DT Swiss X450SL wheels on it. Any suggestions will be very helpful. Thanks.

    Sure it will. Bunny hoping is a good skill to have when on the trail. It is large repeated drops you have to be concerned with. Bunnyhop away.

    It depends. Is there any carbon on it? We all know that carbon is only for show.



    In case you can't pick up on the sarcasm, yes it will do just fine. Plenty of people subject their StumpJumper to worse without incident.

    It'll be just fine. It's not called a Stumpjumper for nothing...

    Best answer.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.
