Hey guys, sorry if this has been brought up before....I tried to search, but either I didn't use the right keywords or didn't look through enough pages! Anyway, I've got around 2k to spend on a new trail bike. I love my lower end Specialized hardtail, so I want to stick with Specialized, so I narrowed it down to the SJ fsr comp, and the FSRxc Pro.
I'm assuming everyone here would advise me to go with the Stumpy? Anyone prefer the FSRxc? I might do a little racing with it, but mostly will be just riding for fun. I love fast downhills and hucking off some minor drops, so the extra 20mm frame of the SJ looks like a good idea. I'm going to try to demo a few from the LBS, if they can get any in for me.
Its funny you would ask this, the last couple of days we have just randomly been weighing bikes in the shop I hang out at and we weighed both our 2010 FSRXC test bike and our 2010 Stumpy expert Test bike both larges and the stumpy was less than 2lbs lighter.
