EWS Bike Check: Jesse Melamed's Rocky Mountain Altitude
I ride an XL and say that about every bike I see. Oh wait no joking allowed.

Bike Check: Julien Absalon's BMC Double Threat - Nove Mesto World Cup XC
Not sure why that got downvoted. I feel the same way. I find their single-purposeness really cool. I would never ride a full-on XC race bike but it's interesting to see the lengths racers will go to fine tune their bikes nail a single situation.

First Ride: 2016 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR
Well if anything, this announcement will probably trigger a wave of Enduro 29s appearing in the used market. On closer look I can pretty confidently say that a CCDBA won't fit this bike. Look how tight it's tucked into the top tube. Too bad.

Right? But I have an Enduro 29 and I've never seen anyone else on one, let alone one that's identical to mine.

Now that is a proper stack on the XL and XXL. Tall head tube, lots of stack. It's incredible that basically no other company does this for the bigger sizes. As if not one person at NameYourBrand realized that tall people are, you know, tall and aren't struggling to get their bars low enough. I will be a Specialized customer as long as this continues. I continue to ride with a pack so the added weight of the SWAT thing is weird but it might be something I would come around on. The big question will be if this bike will now accept a CCDBA because I'm done with Fox. No CCDBA fitment is a dealbreaker. Does this mean we can expect a new Enduro 29 next year as well? But now that the Stumpjumper is very similar to the current E29 maybe the E29 will get an even more Enduroer treatment.

WTB Vigilante 2.3 AM TCS 29er Tires

$75 CAD
Two WTB Vigilante 29" tires. AM/TCS casing. Roughly the same as Maxxis EXO casing, maybe a bit lighter. The tire on the right was used once. The tire on the left was used for a month as a front tire. They wear very slowly. The casings are really big. The reason the one is barely used is because it didn't clear the rear end of my Enduro 29 and I took it off after two rides (one to notice it was an issue, a second to test it after re-dishing the wheel). Both are in great shape.

I think it looks super slick. But they lost me at no XL, and mandatory DT Swiss shock.
