    Stumpjumper or FSRxc?

    Should i dare ask this question, i dont know. sound like alot of you guys are not too happy with the 07 specialized bikes. but i would like to know which one.

    or

    I like the stumper because i heard it has good componets and is a great bike, but the FRS is full sespen. and ive been told to not wast money on a hardtail and get the full suspen.

    other then the obvious difference what is some pros and cons on these bikes?
    I race and need a new bike by next season so a good racing perfomance would be apreciated!

    Because i'm a big fan of hardtails, i'd advise getting the stumpy. Better fork and all around components.

    I just bought a 06 FSR XC Pro and absolutely love it. It's the best of both worlds for me. Both the front fork and rear shock have lock outs so I can climb like a HT, but then I can unlock them to do some technical singletrack. IMO, you can't go wrong with either one. Test ride 'em both and see which one feels better to you.

    Here's the link to the one I bought.

    well if you dont mind a bumbier ride, like to go fast, and sprining past people on nicer bikes than you gets you off, i would advise the hardtail. and the stumpy is just the bees knees my friend!
