    Ordered A 07 Stumpjumper FSR!!

    Well yesterday I took the plunge and ordered a 07 Stumperjumper FSR elite (Blue). My bike shop marked it down to $2,100.00 out the door; I couldn't pass it up. I can't wait, but it will take a week or two to get here.

    My 05 Scalpel has served me well but it is time for the up grade. I will not be getting rid of her, just placing her on stand by status.

    I purchased the exact same bike at the start of the summer and love it. I rode the next model up with the brain shock but liked the triad setup actually better (they probably didnt have the brain properly adjusted for me). You will love the adjustable Talas shocks for steep hill climbs. Bike is an all around performer....climbs well, handles great, and the plush downhill ride is just a two week seat familarization away from being a couch. Very well rounded and great bike--CONGRATS and have fun with her.

    Thanks for the info bud! I was wondering if I should have order the Expert with the shock brain, but most folks I have spoke with have told me the shocks are not that big of a difference.

    I like the thought of a long travel huck bike! It's perfect for Kansas

    For Giant I believe it's the Trance line: http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-US/bikes/mountain/

    And Trek it's the Fuel line: http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en/bikes...ll_suspension/

    The Trance-X is probably closer to the Stumpy. Trek doesn't make a bike that compares.
