Spotted: Matt Hunter's Aluminum Specialized Stumpjumper Has a Cable Actuated Derailleur
Ha, yes, that's correct - prior to 1991 all the Stumpjumpers were steel. I was referring to the more modern full-suspension version, but I can see how that could confuse the old timers. (Just joking - I think I'm pretty far past being a child myself).

First Ride: The Trek Top Fuel Gets Lightly Revised for 2025
@nicoenduro, for me, I’m happy to use Codes on any bike - use big rotors for big bikes, little rotors for little bikes and it all works out.

@baldybrucetires, I'm pretty adaptable, but I'd say that these days my ideal reach window is between 470 - 485mm, so a 15mm spread. Of course, there are other factors that come into bike fit, but that's sort of my starting point.

@grampa, I’m not at all arguing that Transmission is superior, and for the record I’d rather my personal bike didn’t have batteries for shifters and droppers. I was just trying to see what DaneL’s main complaints were, since his experience seem a lot different than mine.

@DaneL, that's quite the list. For the mount, make sure you have it torqued to the correct spec- it's quite high, and if it's not tightened tight enough it can slip. As for slow shift speeds, needing to walk in a spot that you could make with a cabled drivetrain seems kind of wild to me. Maybe shift a little earlier? I agree, the overall shift speed is slower, like if you're trying to go from the hardest to the easiest gear in one fell swoop, but changing your shifting technique slightly should make it a non-issue. If you hit the shift button a few times before that steep uphill the chain should start making its way up the cassette as soon as you start pedalling again.

@DaneL, at the risk of opening a can of worms, what do you hate about it? I'm not the biggest battery fan, but I have had good luck with Transmission. I've bent one cage past the point of being repairable, but otherwise it's been very solid and low maintenance.

I think that's an Aenomaly Switchgrade (https://www.pinkbike.com/news/review-aenomaly-switchgrade-saddle-angle-adjuster.html) on an older Fox Transfer post.

You got it. That's on my to-do list. It'll make the geo pretty similar to the Norco Optic, which I really liked.

Codes aren't downhill brakes - they're even the stock spec on the Specialized Epic Evo.

You're right - that line's been updated.
