First Ride: Specialized Stumpjumper EVO Pro Carbon
I think that because the bike is rather radical in terms of geometry (at least compared to the regular Stumpjumper) specialized wasn’t sure that it would be well received. Therefore they have started off with just two sizes that are roughly equal to medium and large.

Ye old Maxxis Aggressor is only available in DC. I'd assume Maxxis has determined most folks prefer a slightly firmer rubber compound that will have less rolling resistance and slower wear.

Field Test: Trek Remedy 9.9
@mikelevy: I feel you on that one. Come spring time ill be ditching the stock 2.6" tires on my pivot mach 5.5 and trying some of the 2.4" - 2.5" Maxxis WT tires instead. 0.1" doesnt sound like a lot, but the tires are definitely significantly less voluminous, which i suspect will have a noticeable effect on handling.

Field Test: Specialized S-Works Stumpjumper 29
Its actually pretty cool that the lowest spec carbon model uses the exact same carbon frame as the Sworks model.....no alloy rear end, no lower grade carbon, etc. Ive rode the stumpy a few times, and I feel that the taller stack height helps to offset the short reach....while its a bit shorter the tall stack height helps you feel like youre really in the bike, as opposed to on top of it. if that makes sense. I also found that it was one of the more playful 29ers ive had the pleasure of riding, the rear end really generates a ton of pop off of jumps and trailside features. Its also interesting to note that Graves and Keene choose this as their race bike for the EWS as opposed to the Enduro.

Whyte Launches 2019 Mountain Bikes
@bridgermurray: not to be offensive, but that is incorrect. scout is 130r/150f, ST stumpy is 130r/130f, and the 5010 is also 130r/130f
