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!

I love my pimped 2013 Elite. Weight with pedals size L comes at 29.3. Not the lightest bike since I'm quite obsessed with lightness but i have friends that consider a normal weight their 33lb 26 inches bike...

Jealous about your 34 forks for sure...:skep:

I really wanted one of these. Love the black and gold colour scheme, dropper post, XTR RD, geometry. But compared to my Epic, it felt too heavy. Mind you I tend to bunny hop a lot.

Xlash, no they are demolition trooper pedals, not a bad flat pedal at all. I have since switched over to shimano. I like being clipped in alot more. I have alot more control, it is also considerably faster (especially on climbs). Obstacle clearance has also increased exponentially.

Which SPDs did you get?

I totally agree with you on all those point on going clipless. I'm never going back.
