@jeff brines - New seat stay for 2020 Stumpjumpers, is not tapered like the OEM for 2019 Stumpjumper and other bikes that shared that original design.

I have just received a crash replacement seat stay, and the bike (XL Comp Carbon 29) is noticeably different!!!

Lower gears are “easier” to pedal/hammer, increased acceleration
Climbs better in huger climbing gears
Maintains momentum ver chattery sections of the trail, bike does not drastically slow down and lurch me forward
Running 260+- psi in rear Fox DPS Shock, I removed the .6mm volume spacer. The harshness is gone (don’t know what % seat stay has to do with that feeling) traction is much improved for climbing
Stumpjumper S-Works, Pemberton & Evo Carbon have new seat stay.

I would really like to see a test of these bike with upgraded seat stay vs tapered original seat stay.

@jeff brines - what is your opinion on running a 29 front and 27.5 rear on the 2019 Stumpjumper? The HT will be slacker, BB lower and the flip chip could be set in the high position. (I’m running an XL Stumpy) will the bike ride similar to the Evo then?
