I would say overall a real solid build. Nothing that jumps out at me that is excessively good or bad.

Of course, with all complete builds, there are some upgrades you could perform, but not after riding the crap out of the original components first.

I just picked up a Stumpjumper Expert and man you can not go wrong with these bikes. I know the setup is different from yours but still a solid build. Many of the things are the same about the bikes. There are small differences like juicy 5 over juicy 7. Do not get caught up in that because the seven is the same but allows pad adjustment and is probably not worth the extra money by its self.

I say go for it! I think you will be very happy.

You could upgrade the stem, handlebar, seatpost and wheels to better/lighter gear, but other than that, it's pretty solid. I also wouldn't choose those tires or seat, but that depends on your terrain and buttocks respectively.

If I had to pick nits, I'd say the headset is sub-standard. If you have the money, buy a Chris King. It'll be the last headset you'll have to buy.

Secondly, I don't like that style of seatpost. I have trouble with that design stripping out. I prefer a double bolt design like a Thomson Elite www.lhthomson.com

Other than that, Specialized grips are horrible for my taste. I recommend a set of ODI Rogue.

Saddles are also very specific to what you like. What works for you might not work for me, so it's entirely up to you.

I don't know why, but Specialized tends to "under-spec" the hubs. The only hub I have ever had fail was an LX hub...the freewheel crapped out after 1 hour of riding. (fluke)

If I were you...if you can afford it...since it's your first mountainbike...I'd buy that sucker and ride it like a madman. If something breaks, come back here and we'll help you with an upgrade or side-grade.

It's a good bike. Specialized is great at offering alot of hardware for your $$$.

I got whacked by a guy on the trail during a race and he was racing that exact bike, only last years model.

Cool, now I just have to head down to a few local shops and test ride a L and an XL to see what fits best. Of course there's still that small detail of $2000.

Well, it might be a while. I'm selling all my junk on Ebay and when I get enough cash in my PayPal account I'm going to buy it. Currently I'm only at $69.48.

I'll tell you what's bad - it's full suspension!

Kidding aside, it looks pretty solid to me.

Yes, that "small detail" of $2000 for my 1st MTB is what scared me from a new bike. I was looking for a used specialized or Cannondale after trying out my friend's Cdale. After a month of searching (and borrowing my friend's bike in between), I found a used Cdale Jekyll for $600, and I added the bars,
seat/post for $140 more. This is an example of being patient, and getting lucky and finding a good deal

-Marzocchi Bomber pro ETA
-Fox float R w/ remote lockout
-Easton Monkeylite CarbonFiber bar
-Hope mini Hydraulics
-Raceface Dues headset
-Bontrager stem
-Yeti grips
-Shimano mega 9 shifters, FR(soon to be Sram X9)
-Shimano XT RD(soon to be X9)
-Thomson Elite seatpost
-Selle San Marco w/ titanium rails
-Michelin Country Mud tires
-Mavic X231 Wheels w/ Shimano Hubs

I bought the 2006 version - it's an awesome bike. Sure you can bling it up a bit but all of it is very workable right now. Like the new styling and paint job. My is blood red with black trim. I would as stated before, add a CK headset - it comes in a nice red to match the bike. Also add a red Hope seat post clamp and skewers for that appropiate subtle bling!!!

Not certain where you are in So Cal - but there are several shops that allow you to buy the bike and not pay any money or interest for 1 year. I think Incycle in San Dimas carries Spec. Not certain about the shops up in LA but not be afraid to ask. Also not certain if you are a member of a bike club but my club has discounts with some shops so I was able to get 10% off the price of the bike. That's $200 - that'll buy the CK headset and other bling!

but to be on subject, a friend had one of these out for a test bike a couple of weeks ago and we rode the living hell out of it two days in a row. both of us overall -really- loved the bike. the only critiques we had were the juicy's squelling like crazy, we would have liked a shorter stem (my bike had a 50mm x 0deg better), and we both prefered my platforms over the clipless.

honestly, i dunno what the heck was up with those brakes, other poeple really like them.

as for pedals, stems, ect, thats all setup stuff based on personal taste and getting the bike to best fit the terrain, so its 100% subjective.

we were riding some very technical, twisty rolling rooty and muddy terrain and riding them -fast-. we beat the living heck out of that thing and it really did very very well. compaired to my HD hardtail at just over 32lbs the stumpy felt very lite. it was intresting to compair the two bikes, i was able to bomb down the hills with much higher speed and hit obstacles with much more speed and authority, but the stumpy was just consistant. making it smoothly down and back up the other side of the rollers.

I┤ve tried Stompjumper,swell and I liked the setup of rearShok, its a stable MTB for All-Mountain use cos the hevier+robust parts. I had a EPIC too, But I deceided to assemble a JEKYLL frame with FloatRC. I like the GeometryAdjust. its very important to me,cos I want Xcountry-fast, & Downhill safe. The handling I find is simillar to Stompjumper. veryNiceBike(someTuningMaybe). :-)
