Strengths:    2007 FSR Comp is the model I have. Solid bike with plenty of growing room for me. X9 is awesome and I love my hydraulic brakes.

Weaknesses:    All bikes have an inherent weakness of being sold with tubes. Go tubeless, it rocks.

Bottom Line:   
Sweet ride with plenty of travel for XC riders that can handle jumps, bumps, and single track.

Strengths:    The frames handling and speed on any trail you throw at it.

Weaknesses:    Screws in the rear D hanger look weak. No actual problems though.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this frame separatly, then built it up with the bits that I had and "wallet emptying" parts I desired. But feck is it a bike and a half.
This bike (in pro-peddle)actually runs flat xc faster than my hardtail. On the first ride I knocked 3 minutes off my fastest time on my local trail and am continuing to beat it. If you add in the speed this bike handles when racing downhill single tracks, then this is one seriously good frame. The lockout even makes cycling uphill tolerable.

Would be 5 and 5, but buying the frame separatly isnt as big a bargain as a complete bike - it just gives you more options!

Strengths:    Great frame geometry for climbing and tight, techical trails. Good component spec for the price, pretty light.

Weaknesses:    LX front derailleur - doesn't shift well under load.

Bottom Line:   
Very happy with this bike. It climbs well, descends well and really inspires confidence on rutted and washed out trail descents. The bike takes a line and holds it. The geometry and handling is much more to my liking than the "all mountain" Reign and, to me, the Stumpy feels more nimble than the Trance on tight singletrack.

The Juicy 5 brakes took a while to bed in - they juddered for a while and I was afraid I might have faulty discs but they have now settled down. The propedal setting on the Triad shock is just right for me - no bob on the uphills and very plush over the bumps.

Strengths:    Awesome ride. Great Fox fork and rear suspension.

Weaknesses:    None that I have found so far

Bottom Line:   
I have used the bike several times now on different trails. It is my very first full suspension bike. My previous bike was hard tail. I have done some good downhill riding and it handles very well. The bike is very good for climbing as well. I have not found any weaknesses yet. Since I am new in the area I often take a wrong turn and end up going uphill for a couple of miles. With this bike it is no problem. I find myself climbing these hills much better then my previous hard tail bike. Adjusting the PSI on the front and rear suspension is very easy. I did a little fine tuning and now it rides incredibly well. I find myself on more challenging trails since this bike can do it all. I am 6'5 and about 210lbs. Biking on the XL frame is no issue at all. Overall I am very happy with the bike and would definitely recommend it to anybody looking for a first time full suspension bike. I purchased this bike at River City Bicycles in Portland, OR and they were very helpful. They told me everything I needed to know about the bike and did not mind me asking 1000 questions. They take their time with you to make sure you feel 100% comfortable with the bike.

Strengths:    suspension adjustability, perfect mix of efficiency and travel for trail riding, proven FSR design

Weaknesses:    stock Specialized components (crank, bars, stem, and post) all underspec'd for the price, stock wheelset is junk

Bottom Line:   
Love the bike. Working at a shop, I get my pick of just about anything, and I've ridden just about everything. It's far from stock, but why buy a new bike when this frame will outride just about everything coming out anyways? 4" of travel is perfect for trail riding. It's lighter weight (26.2) than my boss's full carbon Trek FuelEX 9.5. The only thing I may ever trade it for would be a Blur, though next year's HiFis from Fisher look pretty interesting...

Strengths:    wow what can i say about this bike. it has performed so well in the last rides ive gone on. My brother my friend and i went on mount diablo for a little ride down but got lost and had to find our ways back. the stumpjumper was climbing hills that my friends couldn't going faster than every one.this is an awsome all around bike. i only weigh 100 pounds but ive taken it on some mild downhill and i dont feel anything. anyway if you have the money buy this bike.

Weaknesses:    nothing really. my brakes squeek probably because i need to clean my rotors. the seat is not bad everyone says it is but with the nice fox triad in the back i dont even notice the seat its like floating on air.

Bottom Line:   
best bike for the price good overall i think this is the best bike in the world buy this bike if you are a extreme downhiller dont get this bike but if yo might climb or descend a mountain on single track stuff buy this bike.

Strengths:    Sweet suspension feel, i have the specialized stump fsr comp w/ the fox float rl 120, feels real nice! been riding some technical single track and never had any problem w/ traction or hopping, i'll be riding this bike for a while

Weaknesses:    the seat!!! the bars seem a little wide also, might need to shorten them or replace them

Bottom Line:   
Best bang for the buck here, it will need some minor upgrades but nothing real major unless something takes a thrashing! i may change the wheels but other than that i love this bike, getting a new seat!! if you are a new rider, don't spend too much money on a bike, unless you have extra money, the base fsr is more than you'll use, i've got a lot of experience on the trail and i don't need all that this bike has to offer, its fun though!

Strengths:    Very nice disc brakes, light frame, fully adjustable front shocks, rear suspension locks out. Rides very smooth.

Weaknesses:    The seat sucks. Pedals are mediocre

Bottom Line:   
This is my first Full Suspension bike. I'm still getting used to the feel on the trail. I don't seem to get any pogo action from the rear suspension, and the ability to lock it off is awesome for any stretches on paved roads. The front shock is awesome, which dials in quick to the tril conditions you're on. The bike itself glides over most any obsticle, climbs like a champ, and brakes on a dime.

The seat sucks. Very hard and uncomfortable. I bought a new seat after my first ride.

The pedals are so-so. One side is standard, and the other side can clip in. A great idea, but it doesn't work. If you want a standard pedal, the clip in gets in the way if flips to the clip side. If you want to clip in, the standard pedal gets in the way of your shoes if it flips to the standard side. The hybrid sucks. Give me one or the other. I waste 2 or 3 pedal stokes just trying to get my pedals flipped to the correct side, which really sucks when you get started.

Strengths:    Sorted geometry, Fox Shock, stock components last a decent length of time

Weaknesses:    Manitou Black fork, rear shock gets covered in mud

Bottom Line:   
Fantastic all-day bike that's light enough to race on (I compete in Trailquests). The backend is beautiful and plush and the tri-position fox shock does the job. The stock components last well - better than on my last Specialized (A rockhopper) and the Deore Hydraulic Brakes are a huge improvement over the horrible Magura Julies they used to fit (not quite as good as Hope minis though). I never really liked the Manitou Blacks though - they seemed to go staight from being harsh and underdamped to being harsh and overdamped without ever being right. The seals also wore very quickly in the British mud making the front end judder alarmingly under braking. The Marzocchis have transformed the bike, making it feel really balanced. I notice that the latest version comes with fox forks so Specialized may have taken note. The 4 chili rating is for the Manitou - with the Marzocchi its definitely a 5

Weaknesses:    None yet.

Bottom Line:   
Having only ridden this bike about a dozen times I can't fault it. I am still playing around with shock and fork settings and pressures but even so its a dream ride.

The perfect trail bike or XC enduro race bike.

Strengths:    The bike is smooth and responsive. The rear shock in pro-pedal mode is just right. Climbs really well and can handle some decent downhill. This bike really takes off on cross country rides. I end the day not feeling nearly as fatigued.

Weaknesses:    Avid Juicy's work well enough but the XT's would have been a better compliment. The bottem bracket is a little weak.

Bottom Line:   
I really enjoy this bike. This is my first full suspension and I am loving it. If anything it has made me a little more aggresive in my riding habbits. I'm willing to try quite a bit more. The store bought set up is good and you get a great component group for the money, though I still recommend replacing the bottem bracket with something a bit beefier. Other than that it is a great ride.
