LOVE IT! Great bike, great build. Like the custom color spacers, I put orange ones on mine. It's those little extras that make the bike look like you really care, like my orange rotor bolts too. It's close enough to a Stumpjumper that it Aaaay-O-K in my book! Hey I'd love to take a ride on that thing!

Color matching ROTOR BOLTS? I'm there with ya'!
On my snack and water break during the first REALLY hot trail ride this season. A view of the lake from the rotors point of view. Had riding plans w a friend and something came up he couldn t make it so as a consolation prize I went up to the Fells again myself.

Here's my Stumpjumper. This one actually started life as a ST, but I got a shorter shock yoke/longer shock to get the travel up. Cascade link and a Bomber CR with Cane Creek progressive spring plus a 9point8 Slack-R round out the less conventional touches. Currently have a 150mm spring in the Lyrik, but will see how long I can go with it before the BB gets too high come bike park season. Overall really loving the balance of versatility and capability this suspension setup is giving.

Other stuff: SLX levers and MT520 calipers are hard to beat for the price. Running 11sp Shimano drivetrain, currently with an XT shifter, 11-50 Sunrace cassette, and Deore derailleur that can handle the range which kinda sucks; next up will be a Garbaruk cassette and cage adapter for an 11sp SLX derailleur that's in the parts bin. Stem, seat collar and cranks are all from Engin, made here in Philly.

Great lookin' Stumpy tup
Did the CC link improve the coil shock response, or did you have the cascade before you installed a coil?

Thanks!

Between this bike and a stumpy evo I used to have, I've ran it air and coil both with and without the Cascade link at various stroke lengths, with linear and progressive coils. It brings the platform's kinematics up snuff for a bike that wants to get pushed, for me it was enough to keep at bay the itch to go after a new alloy evo, as awesome as that bike sounds. Makes it easy to love the one you're with in these times of high prices and low availability, which is very cool.

I'd recommend it with both air and coil, and for me I wouldn't consider running a coil without it even with a progressive spring. With an air shock it makes it way easier to run enough pressure to avoid heavy bottom outs without losing all it's sensitivity, just as marketed. Running coil the effect is similar, making it much easier to find a spring rate that successfully manages that balance of feel vs. bottom out resistance.

Holy sh*t! Monster bike, and you just posted that killer Nomad in the SC thread. Damn you been busy! LOL

GX drivetrain parts work great for the money. I was going to upgrade on my Stumpy, but haven't had ANY issues w/the GX. Shifts perfect, never adjust it. Fine for me until it wears out. Gets along great w/a KMC Ti N chain too.

Love the Spesh'!

Thank you Sir...it was a great project to stay busy Smile
My friends declared me insane dropping 2K in a 26" but now it's finished and they took it for a spin...they all love it.
26" is so nimble & poppy and couldn't imagine a new 2K bike coming close in specs,let alone find stock during covid times.

She is a keeper Wink

I could imagine it's a great bike! I still have an older 26 Rockhopper as my emergency backup bike, and that thing feels like I can throw it around at will, like it's nothing. I do see why many experienced riders STILL love their 26's. There definitely is a place for them and there was nothing wrong with them ALL THOSE YEARS we all rode them and enjoyed them.

Nice job on the Spesh tup
