    Wink Holy crap that's blue!

    This came in last week and my camera has been a ***** since then





    And this will be used for the parts




    Head set, shock and front D should be here within two weeks. And no this isn't for me, it's for the wife

    Nice!!!

    Did you buy it from the guy on Pinkbike?
    That would make you the owner of a beauty and get him out of his misery.

    You wife must be tall... nice move.

    Yeah she loves the stumpy. However, since we are no longer a spec dealer it would cost me almost 400$ to get a new shock once the brain crapped out. Or buy an rp23 and hope I guess right at the valving and still not have the same suspension performance.

    Specialized took a big S*** on our shop so I've been trying to find a suitable replacment for quite a while. The cost on these 2010 frames was below what dealers where paying for them in the begining of the run.

    Frame looks great. Hope it builds up well. It'll be getting one of the monarch rt3's so I'll be watching it and seeing how she takes to it. If it does well I may pick one up for the EG.

    Headset and other parts should be in early next week. I'll keep you posted.

    The Stumpjumper uses a proprietary size shock that Fox doesn't sell to the public. Surprised you don't know that. I thought you worked at a shop... that sold Specialized...

    All done. She's put around 40 miles on it in the last few days so I think she likes it







    And I like the jack-a-lope they put on the monarch shock.


    It went together really well. I'm liking the ck inset upper headset cup. Makes me want to drop a taper fork on the EG for a cleaner look.

    Tire clearance is ample on the 2010 (vs the 2009). Plenty of room for a 2.25 NN. Odd thing is I think I could ride this one. I thought my medium was big but this large isn't much bigger. However, if she stays on it like she has I doubt I'll get a chance to ride it. Over and out.

    Man the bike looks great! For the price they are selling the FTM at, it is an absolute steal!
