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.

Where did the Thunderbolt fall down for you? Just not enough travel?
You'll never be happy until your back on a Knolly Jonno 😎😈
Oh, awesome looking stumpy too, would love to take one for a demo in the future
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.

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.

Sweet ride I really love what they did with the front triangle brace in the 2016s...
