Hey Guys,

I am very lucky to be able to have a extra 2010 S-works stumpy fsr frame laying around.
The frame was damaged & repaired so its resale is shot.......
(had a very small rock chip that was into the carbon.)

I scored a spec. Ts140a tapered carbon 140mm brain fork on Ebay cheap.

Here is the build.

frameset, highly used XX brakes, highly used XX crankset (39-26), my spare Roval control SL wheelset w/ captain front and Bontrager XR1, old Dura-ace rear road derailleur.

I have yet to try it out yet, I am waiting for a lower bearing adapter from Specialized for the TS140A (new version has a low crown race, old version has a high crown)

So far my gearing choice to start will be 39/26 front & a 16 rear.

I have 4-5 trails that I ride and most are flat, fast & technical despite a few climbs that I need a lower gear for.

I was originally going to build a single FSR but I have these parts......it was cheaper to use the high mileage spares I have instead of purchasing more parts.

What do you guys think?

Any of you do this to your ride?

Flame away..........

Very interesting, should be cool. How many teeth is the rear?

Do you have 3 Stumpy FSR's???
Head down.......yes I do.

2011 pro carbon stumpy for my main ride, a 2010 pro carbon that is my gals bike.....

& now the s works fsr, might sell my 2011 if I like the dingle set up.

Kinda stupid to have such similar bikes, but I have yet to drink the 29er kool-aid.
I have spent significant time on 29ers and don't or cannot feel the need yet.

I am an old trials rider(cycles) and raced motorcycles for years, I LOVE the quicker feel of a 26er.
so goes life.........
