- Stumpy FSRs – let’s see them
They’re mostly 120mm (older ones being less), so on that basis less hammer than a 5, but its a four bar so ought to be a bit more effective (overall) than oranges single pivot? I’m guessing now
Where are all the 08/09 Stumpjumper FSRs? The ones with the vertically mounted shock?Posted 8 years ago
MrCrushrider…..mine has got just under 100mm on the back, whereas the newer ones have 120mm….
Mine has been ridden round heaps of trail centres, round Thetford regularly, spent a week in Spain getting some abuse (had to swap forks to some Bombers as my Judys puked their oil out on the 2nd day) and dropped (literally) off some rocky switchback edges.
It’s still going strong.
Mate of mine went to Spain with me on an Orange Sub5. He rode more of the techy bits, but he’s better at riding that stuff so even on my bike he’d have probably managed it.
I keep thinking of getting a new bike (well, not while I’m looking for a new job) – but the Stumpjumper keeps going……
I might get something like a Zesty when I get a new job and keep my Stumpjumper as a race/marathon bike…….get some light bits on it and keep riding it.Posted 8 years agoclareymorrisSubscriber
