I haven't ridden this bike with an air shock, only with the TTX coil. Bottoming out is never an issue. I rarely touch the settings on the shock as the base settings are pretty much perfect everywhere.

Well, I rarely feel that this bike limits be on the descents. Putting a 150/160 fork to slacken it would push the limits further. If you want the ultimate TRAIL bike that can also handle the rough stuff, get a stumpy. If you want a bike primarily for the descents but still want to ride some ups and flats, get an enduro.

This shock is unfortunately not available for retail sale at this point. In fact, I am not sure what spring rate or preload I run (Ohlins sorted all that out), and it is limited to the springs you can use due to clearance at the upper shock mount (which is even tighter on the 2016 stumpy). Nonetheless, coil on Stumpy's are precisely as you say: the money.

I got the shock from Ohlins, so you won't be able to purchase it though your LBS or anywhere else unfortunately. Maybe in the future!

It is a regular TTX shock just like the Enduro, just "custom" in the sense that it is shorter to fit the 135mm Stumpjumper. Also running Cane Creek springs since the original yellow Öhlins spring do not fit in the frame. Completely transforms the bike, it is a weapon with the coil shock!

"Fun fact" regarding the quote: "Martin says it's because it has slightly shorter chainstays"

Imagine how even more dark and awesome our photo would be if it was shot with green bars & pedals to match the green helmet and the trees...Guess we'll have to reshoot it if we win
