I'm thinking about upgrading my FS bike. I usually ride XC / single trail.
which one you like better?
SPECIALIZED Stumpjumper FSR M4 or Yeti 575 ASR?

I have this now ( frame K2)
and is there alot difference the one I have and Specialized or Yeti 575?
when I see geometric, all looks same.
anyway, thank you guys.
Personally I would go for the Yeti, reason being it is one of the best frames out there. I've never heard of anyone owning one and not being extremely happy with it. It is a very simple design that works. Not a lot of bells and whistles or a bunch of marketing bs to go along with it.
mike - yes there is quite a bit of difference in the two frames. One is horst link, one is basicly a modified single pivot.

Are you open to other models? I like the VPP stuff myself.

I would go with the Yeti as well... In fact, I did..... ;) I had an 03 Stumpjumper FSR, which is the older frame style. I bought an 05 575 and then sold the Stumpy. To be honest, I wasn't particularly happy with it at first. My Stumpy had a more stretched out cockpit than the Yeti, and it took a while to get used to the new, more upright seating postition. The bottom bracket is also higher on the Yeti. If you get the 575, I would recommend a hight adjustable fork for it as well. The stuff I ride has a lot of long uphills followed by long downhills and it's nice to be able to dial down the fork and then dial it out for the downhill. I went with a Pike, but I've heard a lot of good things about the Marzzochi AM series too. My 575 actually weighs a couple of pounds less than my Stumpy did too. It's at about 30 lbs with an almost 5 pound fork and Atlas cranks.

i don't think its much of a contest, i have a couple of specialized bikes, becouse i couldn't afford the yeti that i've always wanted....
