    Default 2016 Stumpjumper Carbon

    Decided to go for a bike with a little more travel than my last bike (Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt). Pretty happy with the bike so far, rides nicely, managed to get the suspension sorted out very quickly. Just got to change bars and stem and it'll be almost perfect. Eventually i'll look at 36's and hopefully sort out an evol air can for the shock, and swap to xtr shifter/derailleur.
    In the time being i'll think about what sort of food i can stash in my SWAT box.

    Looks good. How do you find the tyres. Spesh seems to get good reviews for their tyres but now too many people run them.

    Where did the Thunderbolt fall down for you? Just not enough travel?

    Even the 29er is a fun playful bike, this thing looks so fun to ride and flick around.

    Once you've lived with the SWAT door it's hard to imagine a bike without one hey?

    Tyres seem pretty good so far, it's been so long since i've ridden minions or other 2.3's that it's hard to make a good comparison. Probably change to minion SS on the rear for something a little faster rolling.

    Umm yeah pretty much just wanting more travel, want to get back into some enduro racing later this year so that stumpy seemed like a smart move for that.

    As much as i loved the way the knolly rode, snapped linkages and ovalised headtubes aren't my favourite, hopefully the stumpy proves more durable.

    Haha yeah the swat door is great, just keeping a tube, pump and levers in there, still got room for other stuff though.

    But it's not Moorey. In fact, he's the one paying the money.

    Everything I once believed in has died.

    I'd like to change to Fox 36 160mm down the track, but for the time being the pikes are feeling pretty good.
