- Upgrading a Stumpjumper
2013 stumpy evo here, running 780mm bars and 45mm stem, flow ex, formular the ones, zee 1×10, strait line chain device and got 150mm pikes coming next week.
I tweaked my shock with a volume spacer which helped loads as I’m 100+kg. I use it for everything here in south Wales, found the forks lacking support and blow through travel too easily and I’ve snapped the chain stay but otherwise it’s and awesome bike.Posted 4 years ago
So two weeks after starting this thread I now have an overbuilt Stumpjumper.
The build is
Carbon frame with an RP2
Lyriks at 160
Hope Hoops with 721s
Slx 10spd shifter and mech
Works Components thick thin ring
Specialized Command Post
The cranks are way OTT and will be changed to something lighter and newer. I am hoping to put Hope Hoops with Flow EX on at some point too. That should get it down from 31lbs to close to 28lbs.Posted 4 years agoJCLMember
The clevis link looks good – FWIW, if it doesn’t work out or there isn’t enough interest the distributors (e.g. Mojo, Fischer etc) can change the shaft on the shocks to fit the standard clevis – means that you can run monarchs, RP23s, Evolution CTDs etc
Monarch’s? Who is offering those direct mount?Posted 4 years agoTheArtistFormerlyKnownAsSTRSubscriber
I Ache – nice bike, but how have you managed to make it so ‘heavy’?
My LARGE carbon Enduro is 30lb, built with:
Venegance HLR 170mm forksPosted 4 years ago
Mavic 521 rear on Pro II
Roval Traversee front – probably the only ‘light’ish’ component.
XT triple chainset
Hope Tech M4’s
Spesh 2.3 Eskar tyres
DMR 780mm bars
Thanks, its a large by the way.
STR not one component on the bike was bought for its weight. The Lyriks are DPA, I don’t know how that compares to your vengance. 721s are a reasonable amount heavier than 521s, tyres are both steel bead single ply maxxis 2.35 ajd are particularly light. The crank arms weigh probably almost double what yours weigh, changing these to (second hand) XTR like I am planning will probably drop the bike below 30lbs.
Plus there is the face that neither of our scales are likely to be spot on. It doesn’t really matter as I am pretty happy with the weight of it compared to my old enduro evo.Posted 4 years ago
