    did Ok for a 29er

    Got my stumpjumper all together ready to race @ 21 lbs
    1x5 36 11-26
    wb carbon rigid
    fsa carbon SS
    crank brothers ti candies
    crank brothers cobalt directset
    I-9's laces to blunts with SB* ghetto tubeless
    formula oro blanco's

    the bike is like nothing i have ever ridden before.
    feels like a xc bike for speed but carves like a mtb.
    can't wait to race it this weekend in lubbock.

    Beautiful bike

    Thinking of getting into the 29er thing. Please leave another post after the race test. I assume your other ride is a 26er. Is it full suspension?

    BCD is a pro downhill racer. He races a carbon 29er DH bike of his own design and making. I is pretty cool.

    That's a pretty cool looking bike, but lets be honest, anything with those wheels would look sweet! By any chance was the bike ever stripped down to the frame and did you weigh the frame. I'm just curious to see how much it weighed.
    www.cycletofitness.com It's only a super-awesome website for a super-awesome store. Just click it. I dare you.

    Damn, I wish I could get my hands on a directset already, they seem to be backordered through June.

    i did break some of the ss lip off installing. it was super tight

    and i put to much force on it. not structural but i almost

    hurl when i saw my new directset broken!

    My part supplier has a couple dozen in stock right now. Guess I should stock up, but no one has asked for them yet.
    It's the Cobalt SL, 65 grams. Blue ano alloy shield.

    (Only $170 more to get the ti at 58 grams!)
