    Question : how well do you guys think the new stumpjumper will down DH ?

    Im looking at buying the 2019 stumpjumper over the enduro . I would like to take it to the bike park but thinking it might not be heavy duty enough to ride rough downhill .

    Neither bike is a "downhill bike" but I rode my Stumpjumper at a bike park a few times with no real issues. I wouldn't really make it a habit but a few times a year will be fine. If you plan on going more then I would seriously consider a downhill bike.

    It has a water bottle cage, what else needs to be said. Nice bike though, but as you said, not heavy duty enough and stuff will break fast.

    Not to be that guy, but just about every enduro bike has a cage and they're just fine at the park.

    in reality, if your're a newer rider, any modern trail bike is more than capable as you won't be able to out ride its limits yet...

    But the DH course might be out of your limits on a trail bike.

    i get that the dh bike is the better tool for the job, but in reality if you aren't able to slowly ride the dh trail at least on a trail bike, a proper dh rig really isn't going to help you at that point...
