I had alrdy used a pike on my previous 2015 Enduro.
For this 2016 bike, had compared the lyrik was not far off in terms of the weight scale from pike (144g) and the 0.5degree slacker due to 10mm difference in travel does not effect me much on the climbs. Felt similar as on 160 pike.
The ride benefits I looked at was the better stiffness of the Lyrik especially the axle area for the descends.

For this bike I did not use slaughter as I had it set up separately, not full stock bike.
However, on my previous Enduro 2015, I had the slaughter tyres went through these rocks. It was during a dry season trail conditions, so slaughter was OK.
But currently now these rocks section are very slippery during this wet monsoon season, so I preferred to have them butcher for the back. And it's Grid Butcher.

Can't really give my review yet cos had only rode it once so far.
Initial feel it feels different from my previous Enduro set up of using Debonair. Will update when I get at least a couple more rides

Sorry , my bad on inputting the wrong pike travel info. Currently its 150mm though I had initially in mind to put a 160mm pike but the difference is just only half a degree slacker as compared to the stock 150mm.
Riding experience on this set up gave fast, livelier trail ride as compared to riding my Enduro 160mm especially on them technical climbs. However on gnarly descend , after been gotten so use to slacker 65.5deg ride on my Enduro, Stumpjumper's 150mm require more conscious handling. I may try that 160mm option in future.

I did not ride the custom tuned Fox on this bike but had rode using it on my previous Stumpjumper 2014.
This Monarch Plus is also custom made for Stumpjumper with the auto sag capability included.
I had also used Monarch Debonair on my Enduro instead of the stock In Line shock.
I find the monarch give me good reliable response, easy maintenance and the mid travel capability is much better. This helps alot when my rides I emphasis alot on the descends.

No it did not as the monarch is still the same travel of 150 mm.

size M. It does have a slight longer top tube than a normal trail bike.
