    Typical Specialized.
    Gives into every new fad that others have paid the dues to develop and market.

    The only thing they have perfected in their designs is the squeak!

    Ummmm...like one gear? Or aluminum frames? Or bikes with chainstays? Or just what, exactly are you seeing that most any other bike maker would not do? Are you talking about an EBB thingy or what?

    It looks beautiful though. Maybe good looks and nice execution is a fad.

    Yup, it's my bike. I got it on Friday. It's a 19" frame. You can see through the EBB and I've heard it's the lightest one on the market. I'll put up some more pics soon.

    Where can you buy these framesets? My local bike shop only carries complete bikes and I'm guessing they would charge MSRP for a special order item like a Stumpy frameset... I want a Stumpy Carbon HT 29er frameset....

    Nope. It's the mounting braket for the computer that has a line in it. You scared me though, it looks like a crack.

    Exactly.

    I'm surprised there aren't more people who avoid their 29ers...

    or their 4-bar linkage...

    or any of their bikes given their threatened litigation against Mountain Cycle.

    OK...how about I suggest you stop hating. Or do I have to stop making suggestions as well

    Actually the whole 'stop hating' thing is overdone and often is used as a wet blanket to smother dissent and criticism.

    So go ahead. Hate away.

    I'm fine with Specialized, but the second poster's signature sucks balls.

    Trying to keep the post on it's tracks.

    I really like the frame. It seems as if Spesh tucked the rear tire under the seat more. Which to me resulted in quicker acceleration, and awesome climbing. I've setup my fork to be 100mm so that's changed the geo a little, but I like it better than running it at 80mm. This bike is a rocket and it weighs just under 22lbs. I'm faster on this bike than I ever was on my geared Epic 26er.

    This is my first EBB bike, and I really like the ability to move the crankset either up or down. I can set it 'up' for rocky trails, or set the crank 'downwards' for smooth singletrack. The EBB has been solid. No creaks, squeeks, or slipping. It's also easy to adjust.

    Also I've been told that you can run the bike geared with a different derailleur hanger and some cable guides. Even a 1x9 if you want.

    If I am not mistaken, that is a pinch bolt shell. Very cool. Are the stays really 17"?

    The chain stay is 430mm which is just a hair under 17". That's what I think helps with the acceleration and climbing.

    I changed it from "Silly Roadie, streets are for cars." to "Bikes Not Bombs."

    I thought it was a little funny that I quickly received negative comments on the signature, on a mountain bike forum. I'll just leave it at that, cause it could become a name calling contest quickly.

    One Love!!!!!

    Ha, ha (lol) I must say Mr. Wolf, you sure know how to hold on to a grudge when you're beating that poor horse to death with it.

    How's tire clearance with those shorter stays?

    Will it handle fatness?

    It's not as ugly in real life pics as it is on the website.
    I think it might be between that or a Niner...both are about the same price (actually I can get the Specialized a bit cheaper)
    The deal breaker may be lack of guides if I want to run gears, which I think I might.

    Gotta give Specialized credit for putting a bike out that doesn't have their logo 150 times in script so big it can be read from outer space like so many other bikes this year (and like so many other Specialized bikes, actually)

    well
    Cannondale said they would never use any material other than aluminum,

    Santa Cruz stood behind their belief of single pivots and said they would never go to a multi link frame

    Santa Cruz also said they wouldn't go 29er as well, and now we have the "TallBoy"

    The frame did come with the headset. It came with 2 other parts that look like cable guides/stops. I've been told you can run the frame with gears. It has a replaceable derailleur hanger.

    I may be wrong (Believe it or not I have before) but i think those are bottle cage holders to mount on the seat post

    Is Specialized also going after Stumptown Coffee? I just bought a couple pounds of beans from them a week ago.

    Sounds a lot like what Monster Cable does. I won't ever spend a dime on that companies products now that I've learned of their practices.

    Sorry to continue the off topic banter. Please PM me so we can keep this on topic.

    FWIW, I really like the look of this bike. I bet it rides nice too.

    Google to the rescue...

    http://www.mountaincycle.com/heritage/stumptown

    Looks like it worked out for Mountain Cycle just fine. They still sell the Stumptown.

    Cheers!

    Interesting...Looking at the design, I'm guessing bottle cage mounts. Were they on the seat stay?
