Product Description

FACT carbon chassis ups the versatility of the Stumpjumper FSR Comp with reduced weight and greater torsional stiffness.

  • Custom Fox Triad II rear shock tackles all trail conditions with its 3-position, on-the-fly adjuster that includes lockout, fully open, and efficient ProPedal settings
  • DT Swiss X420SL 24mm-wide rims are sturdy and lightweight - strong enough to handle complex singletrack, yet light enough to make the climb out effortless
  • Both 2Bliss Ready, the S-Works Purgatory 2.2" front tire works in concert with The Captain Control 2.0" rear tire to deliver exceptional traction for pinpoint cornering and braking in varied conditions
  • Avid Elixir R SL lightweight hydraulic disc brakes/levers with alloy backed semi-metallic pads and tool-free reach adjust for superb control and modulation

Strengths:    Handling. Price compared to other similar spec competitors (In Iceland). Light weight. Good stock tiers that role well and have good grip on or off road.

Weaknesses:    None. But I would have liked to have better spec rear cassette, 1030 sram seems so entry level.

Bottom Line:   
I absolutely love this bike a 2012 fsr sj carbon. at 12,7kg stock with pedals and a few extra grams, gps ext. It is not much for a 140 travel do it all bike. I am a relativity fast rider but I have not yet bottomed out on the suspension. The specs are a little bitt different from the description fx a 142 dropout in the rear and The new avid brakes with 200mm and 180 rotors. I am much more confident in riding the trails than on my old Sette flite and the difference is mind boggling. I can hardly believe one can feel so much difference between two bikes. I also have a xc wheel set and with that the bike is about 11,9 kg. The acceleration with that wheel set is notably faster but I would not do big drops or heavy riding on that wheel set. Bottom line if you love trails and aiming the bike downhill you will love this bike. I have now ridden this bike for 1000km and still it gets a smile at a start of every ride. Price 560K isk.
