I have a 2010 stumpjumper elite first of the 140mm travel SJ's. triad on the back, not brain.
Ive made it 2x9 (need a chain-guide or clutch mech now) Didnt get on with the talas 140, so swapped for a coil converted RS revelation with 20mm maxle.
9mm axle on the back, dropper post, stans flows tubeless with proper tyres have made it pretty good for the riding I do...
Riding is a mix of agressive xc/all mountain, with the odd uplift and big mountain day thrown in. typical ride would be 10 miles round the interesting parts of delemere, or cannock/llandegla, but I've also recently donned my full face for trips to one giant leap and a ride down snowdon.
The frame has laquer peel, so I'm either going to try and find an RP23 off a SJ evo and effectively change it into a SJ evo already having the 150mm on the front, while its in bits have the frame powdercoated to tidy it up. getting hold of a RP23 with the right link on is the issue...
Option 2 would be put it back to standard and sell it.... bar cranks and frame I have a second bike with all the upgrades. plan then would be a second hand Enduro frame circa 2009 (you can put proper rear shocks on these much more easily than with the silly link on the stumpjumper).
What do you lot think?
