2012 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Elite

Specialized's Stumpjumper FSR Elite has a voracious appetite for trail. Again and again you'll feel the M5-aluminum frame float over rocks, roots and bumps thanks to the custom Specialized/Fox Brain shock and legendary FSR suspension that delivers 140mm of terrain-smoothing travel. And up front, you can pick your own adventure with the 140mm Fox fork. Throw in super-light Roval wheels with ridiculously grippy Specialized tubeless-ready tires, a quick-shifting Shimano/SRAM 2x10 drivetrain, Avid's powerful Elixir discs and a choice selection of Specialized's quality components, and you've got one heckuva trail machine ready to go anywhere.

    Comments:

    After a few rides if you focus on the feel you can really start dialing in the suspension. It truly makes a differance. Bike looks good. Also has alot of nice upgraded components at this level. I recommend this bike for the rider that wants to take it to the next level from just riding to being passive about trail riding.

      Suspension adjustments are easy to make while riding provided you have half a second to take a hand off of a grip. I have rarely had the front settings change without my doing, getting softer as the ride progressed. Rear control feels loose but is keyed to stay in position, possible for a loose heal to change the ride of the rear on accident, but not likely. Light and agile while climbing uphill. The ability to lock the front and propedal the rear helps to transfer little bounces into dirt kicking engery to push onward. If only I could easily adjust the seat on the fly...

        This bike rails!! The geometry is very good for all sorts of riding, and is highly adjustable. It is like two bikes in one. For climbing, you can stretch out, scoot up on the seat, and lock out the fork/rear(rear is a pseudolock, which I like) for steep climbs and it is very comfortable. For fast decents, the Fox TALAS is great. For fast decents I drop the TALAS down to 100mm (closer to ground-better handling), drop my seat. In my opinion it is like an Epic/Enduro hybrid. For starters the weight is somewhere in between. The rear shock was actually Enduro inspired(check it out). Like the ENDURO, it can take large hits. -Put TALAS on 140mm, triad wide open, seat low, mushy, cushy, plush cake. Like the EPIC it can get low, stiff, climb, and rail like no other. -With some adjustments (lower TALAS to 100mm, lower seat, bar spacers) it has the XC agressiveness of the EPIC. The lockout is great. When climbing it is great to have the front shock locked out. IMHO, this bike is the best value/design in it's class. Specialized go it right with this revision. Changing the rear shock set up but keeping it light and stiff, and giving it ample travel, and the adjustability....I can't say more.. This bike would be perfect for the Downieville Classic All Mountain Race, where you can only use one bike for both the DH and XC portions. SJ FSR Elite( or greater)....PERFECT fit for this race. In summary, With minor tweaks you have a nice DH rig, and a great XC/climbing rig. It's really like getting two bikes in one. This bike is sick. I think mine actually has the flu....sick!!! Very good component set up. (Love the buttery yet responsive Elixr brakes) Very stable. Great value. The only things I would upgrade: Tires: Kenda Small Block Eights Seat post: Joplin remote adjustable. I also tried the Blur XC, and the Rize. With all do respect to Cannondale and Santa Cruz this bike owns those models in value, adjustability, and overall setup.

          Bought this bike on sale for 2099.00. So glad I did. I would pay full price for this one. Took it out 5 times so far and it handles like a dream. I was looking for rocks and anything else to ride over. Jumped it a few times. Sweet. Only about 2' though. My girl was mad about spending so much on a bike untill I let her ride it on a very rocky trail. Now she wants the safire one. Nothing I don't like about it yet.

            Comments:

            I've used the Stumpjumper lineup for a few years. I started off riding a hardtail Stumpjumper and this past season moved up to a 2007 Full-Suspension Stumpjumper. The bike is well suited for most anything you would encounter while riding. The frame gobbles up the bumps, yet remains stiff and responsive when out of the saddle hammering is needed.

              I hit Alifia river weekly and drive a few different bikes. Bang for the buck you can't beat the Stumpjumper FSR Elite!
