    Might depend on what type of riding you intend to do and what style of bike you like.

    I've got an '08 Stumpjumper FSR Pro. It's a great bike and The Brain-controlled shock is awesome: the bike climbs like a hard-tail but descends like a cushy full-suspension bike and you never have to fiddle with the shock. I haven't ridden a Stumpjumper Elite, but based on some of the other Specialized bikes I've ridden I suspect that you will need to use the Pro-Pedal/Lock-out feature on the Specialized Triad shock. From what I can tell, the FSR suspension design just isn't as immune to pedal-induced bob as some of the other designs (e.g. DW-Link). Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of many of the components on the 2010 Stumpjumper Elite: Shimano shifters, Avid hydraulic brakes, and Specialized's The Captain tires are all components I wouldn't normally choose.

    Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to ride any of Trek's mountain bikes. My general feeling is that Trek bikes tend to be a bit over-priced for what you get...
