Any idea when the 2021 Stumpjumper is going to be released? Am looking to buy a 2020 model, but may wait if the 2021s come out this fall.

Thanks!

I've been keeping an eye out for the 2021's as well. Shops are cleaned out of everything still. Holding on to rumors that it may be a new frame as well.

Pirated pictures popped up somewhere else and were quickly removed due the embargo. It does not have the lower linkage setup of the Enduro, but they have definitely modified it significantly. No horst link at the rear end, now relies on engineered flex and the shock is driven off the mid point of the link rather than the top of the link. Definitely longer and slacker. The version that I saw was the ST setup with a Fox 34 and looked to be around 65.5 HA most likely adjustable to 65 as well. Also noticeably longer, probably 25-30 mm in reach with a steeper SA. I remember some statements from the Enduro release that they could have gotten similar results from the current layout, but packaging issues were the problem. Maybe that was due to the length of the shock? Who knows, but the bike looks really good.

The picture posted was the internal marketing photo that they use for the Specialized website so it can't be too far out now. BTW they also mentioned sizes S1 - S6 which is really good news for everyone at the edges of the bell curve in height.

Hmm I'm not seeing it anymore either. Maybe they slipped up and accidentally put it up before they should have.

As a Weeman, I'm a little bummed that I am hearing 29er only, although, they swear they have the stand-over and Geo to accommodate us wee folks on the 2021 model.

Was holding out for the 2021 for the revised rear suspension.

Well we know this now, for a while I was only anticipating the revised rear. That still doesn't make me feel any better about going full 29er. Will find out soon enough.
