So many silly tricks and ironic mustaches, Hipsterstyle 2013! Looks like a fun event though.

Hey Pinkbike community, I'm selling a lightly used 2013 Specialized Stumpjumper Evo Comp - 26" mountain bike. This is a high end aluminum trail bike from Specialized, it has 26-inch wheels and 150mm suspension travel front and rear. The Stumpjumper FSR is and has always been considered one of the best 50% uphill 50% downhill bikes available on the market and is a capable trail shredder in almost any condition. This "Evo" edition of the Stumpy features a more laid back headtube angle, 5mm more travel in the front and the rear, and a lower static bottom bracket height than the normal Stumpjumper FSR. What this translates to is a slightly "beefed up" more downhill oriented Stumpjumper, which you can ride on all the same terrain as a 160mm travel bike. This bike has received 5-star reviews from a number of cycling publications and websites, and I have been told by many an experienced rider that it is the "most fun bike they've ever ridden". Check out some reviews for yourself if you want more details about the riding characteristics, but this bike WANTS you to have fun when you ride it. It also climbs excellently for all of those XC riders out there, I come from a downhill background and one of my favorite parts about this bike is that you can go for epic adventure XC rides and still hold your own when it gets gnarly on the descents. My Stumpy weighs 27.5lbs. as pictured, even with a 2x10 drivetrain and seat dropper. Originally retails for $3,300 with stock components. I've made many upgrades (will list next to component) and the bike only has a few months riding on it. I work at a local bike shop in Mill Valley, so the bike is well taken care of and mechanically sound. There is light cosmetic damage to the paint on a couple spots (pictures to come) and on the wheel decals (they're white, can't order replacements). Bike will be picked up with brand new tires, brake pads, and a full service from a professional mechanic. This is a current year model and is no longer available from Specialized due to high demand! Frame: Specialized Stumpjumper Evo Comp FSR Aluminum - side Medium, 2013 Fork: Rockshox Revelation RCT3 150mm Travel, tapered steerer, 20mm thru-axle Wheels: WTB Stryker All-Mountain, 23mm width tubeless ready, 142x12 Rear and 20mm Front WTB Hubs, bladed Sapim spokes (UPGRADE) Rear Shock: Fox Float RP23 CTD damper 150mm rear travel Cranks: SRAM Descendant cranks, 175mm Length with a 34-24 chainring set and integraded bash-ring Brakes: Avid Elixir 5 Hydraulic with reach adjust, 180mm/160mm rotors Handlebars: Easton Haven Aluminum 711mm Wide 31.8 Clamp (UPGRADE) Seatpost: Specialized Command Post Blacklite 30.9, 5" Travel Rear Der: SRAM X-9 Type II Medium Cage 10-spd Shifters: SRAM X-7 Trigger Shifter Front/Rear 2x10-spd Cassette: SRAM 12-36 10-spd Stem: 65mm Specialized Trail Grips: ODI Sensus BMX Grip I can confidently say that riding this bike has been the most fun I've had mountain biking, the geometry and suspension encourage playful riding and inspire confidence. I've had no mechanical issues the entire time I've owned the bike, and have been super impressed with everything about the thing! Am bummed to part with it, but I'd like to try out the 650b wheel size and I need funds to do so! I'm not in a rush to sell, so please email me with serious offers only! Sold AS IS, Cash only and Local Pickup only, let me know if you're interested.

SRAM Debuts Wider Carbon and Aluminum Rimmed Wheelsets
People are missing the point, even if they don't directly beat the competition in every category, now there is more incentive to run SRAM wheels at all, where as before people might not have considered them for AM/Enduro category. They're stepping their game up and heading in the right direction, that's a good thing for the whole industry. I don't care how cheap your alloy wheels are compared to high end carbon mountain wheels.
