    New Stumpjumper FSR

    Hey guys,

    Here are some photos of my Stumpjumper FSR Expert that I've been enjoying for slightly over a week now. It's such a sweet bike - the frame, the suspension, the brakes, everything is just right!

    I had the shop immediately swap the riser bar for a flat bar, and the clipless for some cheap flats (didn't want to learn to get used to clipless at the Minnesing trails). The original pedals are going back on soon though..

    Sweet. I drooled over the Stumpy FSR and a couple other bikes for most of this spring...then the bills for school came in. Ride hard for me.

    It is extra fast because of the red paint!
    Always try your most moderate.

    Are you sure you want that flat? I rode a flat on my 94 Rockhopper for 10 years and then bought an 03 Stumpjumper FSR Comp with a riser. At first I thought it was lame and uncomfortable, but now I love it. I actually bought a Easton carbon flat right when I bought it ... but it on after having used the riser for a few rides ... then decided to sell the carbon flat.

    Give the riser a shot .. they're great.

    I believe Fox will have a rear shock called the "RP3" for 2005 that works just like the Triad. Speaking of which it's great - each mode is very distinct and has it's own use.

    My old bike had a riser on it and I didn't like it. A riser bar feels way too wide for me. I always end up keeping my hands on the brake lever clamps, rather than on the grips with the riser.

    I'm not exactly 3 feet wide, so that's why a flat bar works better for me.

    Ummm...why couldn't you cut the bars down? Not that it matter really but are you flats narrower than like 12 inches?
