    If you got one, i’d love to see pics. Even if you’re a dwarf, don’t be ashamed, i’ll look at your pics too.

    Good bike by all accounts. Anything to watch for?



    Try and find a 2012 one. There are not many in the range for 2013
    I have an evo one and it always makes me smile evey time I use it


    You looking at getting a new one? I had a 2011 and it’s a fantastic bike, rear shox needed to go to TF as it can blow through the travel a little quickly.
    Descends like a downhill bike, climbs remarkably well. Amazing bike.
    I’m 6.2″ and I had a large, was pretty spot on for me and didn’t feel massive, lots of my smaller friends felt comfortable on it too.
    The pro pedal switch was my friend though, used it A LOT (could have done with a remote..)



    2010 in large. Love it.


    I have a 2009 SL which is essentially the same as the Stumpy Evo in the current range. I think it’s a great ‘one-bike’…bike. Climbs and descends well. Mine is XL and it’s a big bike but I’m 6’4″ and around 100kg without kit. I think the newer Enduros are slightly burlier and wouldn’t suit me as well. Depends what/how you ride though.

    For my riding, if I was to buy a replacement I would go with a stumpy EVO.

    2010 onwards

    I’m thinking the XL is ideal for the way up, but concerned it might be a bit big on the way down. It’ll be replacing my DH bike (L) but used for riding up and down.

    The seat post tube kink looks like it will stop a post from going down too far and I like my seat low when getting jiggy. Is this a problem for anyone? Also is there a recommended minimum insertion (i.e. is does it have to down past the lower lower toptube join? Just trying to work out if i’d be better with a large and being a bit cramped when climbing to get a [buzzword alert] ‘chuckable’ bike on the way down.

    edit: sadly, no chance of a test ride. I’m 6’4″ if that helps

    Im a shade under 6ft ive had a medium and large and found the large a better fit for me with a 50mm stem.

    2010 in L. It’s smaller than my 20″ 456, shorter in reach and leg. Instantly chuckable though.

    Good to know as i’ve a 20″ 456 and the fit is pretty good. I think the XL comes in around 21″ but the shape of the TT means a bit more stand over. Still concerned about seatpost drop though.

    Cheers for the pics. The more I look at the bike, the less ugly it gets. 😀


    I’m 6ft5 and have a 2010 large in the classifieds for sale. Awesome bike and good fit even for my gangly frame. Selling to fund a 29er otherwise I’d keep it as an alps bike.


    Dexter, check your ad.
