    Default Stumpjumper FSR S-Works - Update April17

    So for those who don't know, I bought an ex test 2014 Stumpjumper FSR EVO S-Works earlier in the year, and cracked the seat tube above the main pivot a few months after.
    Specialized, in their glory, replaced it with a 2016 Stumpy S-Works, which was damned lucky on my part, because I got ex-test prices for a brand new bike.

    Anyway, the bike is now build up, barring a few more bits and pieces coming for it. Namely a chainguide when I find a good deal, the SWAT toolkit and EMT shock mount (didn't come with the frame), a Monarch Plus (on it's way) and SlikGraphics fork decals to match (on their way).

    Fork: Rockshox Pike RCT3 140mm, 3 tokens, 90PSI, 4clicks LSC, 6 clicks out rebound

    Why do people even bother with chainguides these days?

    With a clutched derailleur and a narrow-wide chainring guides are redundant, needless weight and just an additional part to malfunction...., and cost you money to own.

    Was actually thinking of it more for the lower bash guard. The chain rings have a large tooth profile and cost me $100 a pop as well as $84 got the tool to be able to direct mount them (that needs to get rolled into the cost of it and subsequent rings).
    Given the amount of rocks out here, I wouldn't think it would be a terrible idea to spend half that to try and protect it a little more, if I can find them... That said... Its yet to be a problem with any of the other bikes. So maybe it is a waste.
