Fast trails, totally pinned descents, and huge days — Specialized's Stumpjumper FSR Expert Carbon 29 is the rig that tackles them all. This nimble carbon ride flows over rough stuff thanks to Specialized's legendary FSR suspension combined with a seemingly telepathic Brain-controlled rear shock, not to mention a RockShox Pike fork with 130mm of trail-smoothing travel. The geometry is a good balance of XC quickness for tight turns, and trail slackness for confidence on steep descents and nasty sections. Technical climbs and hair-raising descents surrender to the light, tough Roval carbon wheels with grippy Specialized knobbies, while brilliant XT discs bring it all to a stop. And, the slick Shimano/SRAM 2 x 10-speed drivetrain offers lightning-quick shifts, perfect for rallying as much trail as possible.

I have been riding an older sworks carbon 26. After numerous injuries almost gave up riding. Then came the FSR. much easier on my body after ling rides no pain. 29er plus plush ride made me want to ride again. This Stumpy helps on the long Colorado Climbs and rocky downhills.
Bought this bike in Annapolis but only a few "shake-out" rides before taking it out to Marin California. There, my first major ride was the famous "Appetite Seminar", a 21 mile ride on Thanksgiving morning that includes the Pine Mountain Loop and Repack, the birth place of mountain biking. This new bike is just simply awesome! Balance, brakes, shifting, tires, suspension, all perfect! Last time I made this ride I burned 2,700 calories, this time even harder due to mud, mud, and more mud. No matter what you are riding now I would encourage you to give this bike a try to see what you are currently missing, the cutting edge of modern technology.
I test rode the camber and the aluminum version of this bike but the carbon with the brain is really great. I am not disappointed at all. I have taken on Mt [...] in [...] and [...]. fun all around.
