    Not a stumpjumper but I put a sp mounted Blackburn on my Titus Motolite and filled in between the seat stays and chain stays with a strip from a plastic planter to protect the fd, bb, and Horst link.

    A good frame is obviously a must but the choice of components makes it yours.

    I’m still highly skeptical of this business transaction. Intense did just let pinkbike publish an early look at a new Tracer mullet. I’m impressed with the rear fender.

    Epic classic mountain bike ride. Wish they were all like that with wildlife, good temps, and big miles

    Yep - that’s where I’m at. I’d like carbon over alum, as my road and gravel are both carbon. Components, I know these have gotten much better over the years, but from my reading, the front/rear shock are where a step or two above entry is good idea.

    I really liked the Devinci Troy (alum frame - didn’t necessarily like the external cable routing, which….is nit picking a bit but for a bike at a $3k price point, cables should be internal) and Django (loved everything about it) that I checked out yesterday. I tried a few other styles, Enduro bikes, and didn’t care for the front wheel response, felt clunky to me coming from a road bike.

    I’m going to check out a StumpJumper tomorrow, there is a base level and a Comp. I guess no downsides to this bike, brand is known, and it’s a good LBS that sells them that I’ve purchased a few bikes from in the past. The base, I don’t know about the shock components, the Comp was built with Fox on both front/rear.

    Happy to hear any feedback you may have as well.

    Now it’s just a matter of finding out what Mama is going to let me spend.

    I have a semi-custom LBS built stumpy EVO carbon, S2. I don't ride hard like 80% of the folks here, but I have my moments. I'm 172#'s, down from 185 and point being I am not (or shouldn't be at least) stressing my frame. I frankly think you will love the stumpy. I am not sure what components come on the base and comp. Everything on mine is rock solid except the 52T Al largest sprocket. I have managed to chew it a bit but still is quite functional. Have fun and DAMN glad there is some selection for you. I assure you this has not been the case for near 2 damned years!!

    @Pablo8 the Devinci’s aren’t in stock, well, the alum frame was, the carbon were the rental/trial bikes. They should be in next month from what the owner said. I was so appreciative of his time, letting me try 5-6 bikes, as he had to put pedals on most.

    The Stumpy’s are in, so….that does make it nice. The components on the comp are SRAM NX and Fox. The base is SX and RockShox/XFusion shock.

    Just a matter of if I want to wait and chance the Devinci bikes actually coming in to the shop or not. I do know what has gone on the last few years of supply. Crazy! Thanks for the comments on the Stumpy as well!

    Last year I would say jump on something if you want a MT bike to ride. At this point, patience - what you are doing - seems to be best. Good luck!

    Base vs. Comp really comes down to how you will ride, IMHO. I have insufficient knowledge to talk up/down (m)any components. I have Fox DHX2 Performance Elite Rear and Marzocchi (Fox) Bomber Z1 coil front. They seem stout and well balanced for my riding and when I dial them rock hard on the fly, pavement seems "normal", yet full soft flying washboard is easy.

    Yeah moving DOES suck. But afterward when finally it is time to get the taint growing again and it really enjoy the new place - it's kinda like the making up after a gnarly fight about how bad the taint is.............wait.........moving sucks. I don't advise it.

    Anyway, went for a ride. It was awesome.

    Someone was asking about riding specs the other day. I mentioned geezer yellow night driving glasses. These things are absolutely fantastic in shadow and light riding here in the PNW. When sunglasses are too dark and clear glasses are not enough. You can select a ton of varieties on Amazon.

    Something like this: https://smile.amazon.com/Driving-Gl...775657&sprefix=Yellow+nig,aps,244&sr=8-8&th=1

    Also, my new $110 Smith MIPS hell-mut.

    @asuchemist where is your buddy located?

    I’ve located a few bikes I have interest in. But….pushing the budget. So, instead of looking at bikes, I went riding this afternoon. It was a great ride and only saw two people while out for 2 hours!
