Picked up my first FS bike on Thursday. A Stumpjumper FSR Elite rode a couple miles on it Friday evening. Took it on the first "longish" ride Saturday (20 miles). This bike is amazingly fun to ride, first ride out and I clear two hills that I couldnt make on my '12 Hardrock sport 29'. I am blown away by the difference in confidence and ability on this bike. Oh what fun this season is gonna be!
