Strengths:    Relaxed enough for confidence on steep. Low enough BB for good cornering. Enough bounce to swallow reasonable sized rock gardens. Good pedalability all things considered.

Weaknesses:    BB30 crank falling off after a few hours. Uses 10mm key that is not common on most trail tools.
Autosag is useful once. Money should be spent on components used many times.

Bottom Line:   
An amazing all-rounder and a great compromise between 140mm and 160mm platforms for a small-medium rider.

Ridden for a few days on wet steep rooty and trail centre singletrack with a good mix of everything.

I was loosing motivation to ride and was not really looking forward to getting the bike. After an hour on the bike I am now completely hooked again.

Strengths:    -extremely fast on a flowy/highspeed singletrack.
-rails the corners even with racing ralph in the rear
-lightweight for a light AM rig @ 24.9 lbs with No-Nic and Ra-Ra 2.25 Snakeskin
-Paint job is sick with neon green/carbon with gloss clear coat
-Very active suspension. The plushess bike I've ever ridden.
-Nimble bike for a 150mm travel

Weaknesses:    -Not confident inspiring when going down a very steep technical terrain. Feels like I'm going over the bars compared to my Santa Cruz Nickel. Maybe because of the Nickels BB height at 13.8 with 140mm fork?
-You don't want to sprint on this bike. You can really feel the rear suspension moving up and down.
-Stock fork 32/150mm. It should have been 34mm Talas like the 2013's.
-PF30. Only because I can't work on it like the GXP's.

Bottom Line:   
This is for the 2012 Stumpjumper Expert Carbon Evo 26er (neon green/black).

Values Rating is 5 chillis because I got this bike new for $5300 including Ca tax and the only thing you really need to change are the stem and handlebar. It has Formula brakes, carbon cranks, X0 RD, Dropper post, etc... And I remember reading somewhere that the frame weighs in at under 5 lbs for Medium with the rear shock.

Overall Rating is 5 chillis as well because this bike is plush, nimble, fast, active rear suspension and super fast & fun on a flowy singletrack. Feels like your on a rail!

Uphill, is not xc fast like blur TRC but it's good for enduro races. When I get the Talas, I know it'll be a much better climbing machine.

Strengths:    Light, stiff, great climber and amazing on descent. Super nimble and extremely fast! Great component spec although swapped out bars for carbon Havens.

Weaknesses:    A bit pricey. Not sure how I feel about the Fox auto-sag quite yet.

Bottom Line:   
Best bike I've ever ridden. Never had so much fun on the trails!

Strengths:    Lightweight, stiff, decent parts spec.

Weaknesses:    Little more travel would have been good.

Bottom Line:   
My new favorite bike as of now. Changed to tubeless. Only thing I'm not satisfied w is front Fox fork doesnt seem to be as good as others available. Would have been nice to of come w carbon bars as well. Overall I'm very satisfied.

Decision Time: S-Works Stumpjumper FSR or FSR Expert Carbon EVO?

I'm retiring my 2006 Enduro AM rig for something that will climb better and not fight me as much on all the sit and spin trails we have down here in South Florida. I'm 6'6", 215lbs and am gonna stick with 26" this time around. I came from BMX and just don't enjoy the big wheels. So, I test ... Read More »
