    just got a Stache 8

    took it out today and I am very happy with the purchase, the bike is a medium. Ill probably run a shorter stem other then that everything is great.

    Were you not also looking at a Stumpjumper EVO? If so what made your final decision?

    Yea that was me, I just didn't for forward I was on the Evo it felt as if my whole body weight was on my arms and I didn't like that at all. Also I love the extra travel on the fox fork it really shows on the trail.

    what height are you? I'm about 5'10" and the LBS near me has a 17.5 in stock and of course says it's my size but other shops tend to always say 19". I did ride it in the parking lot and down the street and it didn't jump out at me as small and I felt at home. Not sure if I should order a 19" or take a better deal on the 17.5"
