    “A Downhiller's Trail Bike”

    The Good: - Descending friendly Geometry - Plush suspension - Legitimate tires - Dropper post comes stock - "Autosag" on the rear shock makes setup fast and simple

    The Bad: - FSR suspension isn't quite as efficient as Maestro or other VPP designs but with the Pro Pedal activated (the switch is easy to reach) there is no excessive "bobbing".

    Overall Review: I got this bike so that I could access the great XC trails where I live. I started out riding and racing XC but I have done DH predominantly for a while now. For me the only reason to go up is to come down as fast as possible. My ideal trail bike is one that can ascend with relative ease without feeling like I have to hold back on the downhill. So far this bike fits the bill perfectly. Compared to the other Stumpjumper FSR's, the EVO models have slacker head angles, lower bb's, bigger/more aggressive tires, and 150mm of travel versus 140. So what does all that mean out on the trail? Except for on the steepest of climbs the bike ascends smoothly without the need to exaggerate how far you position yourself over the front wheel but its when the trail starts to go downhill that the bike really begins to shine. The first thing I noticed was how plush the bike feels. While the FSR suspension may not be the most efficient it is definitely one of the most active and smooth riding designs out there and for me this is a major bonus. Handling the suspension duties are a Fox RP2 shock and Rock Shox Revelation RL fork that are both simple and highly effective at keeping your ride smooth and under control. The slacker geometry combined with being able to drop the seat on the fly makes for a bike that inspires confidence on steep terrain while begging to be pushed hard in the corners and on the high speed straights. Being a downhiller at heart my goal has been to ride this bike like I would ride my DH bike (a Specialized Demo 8) and so far I have been more than impressed with its performance. Bottom Line: Dialed geometry, intelligent spec, and plush suspension all add up to make a bike that not only climbs well but is more than capable to shred on the way down

    “A Killer Trail Bike”

    The Good: Absolutely kills it on the uphill with its slack but uphill ready headtube angle. The command post adds a nice touch, being able to change your seat hight on the go.

    The Bad: Wheel set dents easily after a few cases.

    Overall Review:

    Overall a outstanding bike! Great for a first timer or a expert! Highly recommended

    “My Quiver Killer”

    The Good: Easy suspension setup with the Autosag (though I do adjust it depending on what I'm riding) Very capable components for the $$ Stock dropper post that is in my opinion the best one on the market Great tires Stock chain guide and bashgaurd Overall beefy setup that's at home all around the mountain

    The Bad: Wheels could be better. They'll last, but they're the first thing I upgraded.

    Overall Review:

    Love this bike. Since buying it and riding it stock for about a month, I swapped out the 2x10 for a 1x10 setup with an e13 chain guide.  Like I said, the stock wheels are not the best, so I swapped those out for Crossmax SX's.  I'll still use the stock wheels, but I'm not expecting a long life, particularly from the rear hub.

    Overall, this is a sweet bike at a great price.  The chassis is very upgrade worthy, and burly enough to withstand what will hopefully be many seasons to come.  Stoked on this buy-my favorite bike!
