No matter how you do the math, Specialized's Stumpjumper FSR Comp Carbon 29 is an equation that equals fun. The light, stiff FACT 9m carbon frame goes up and down hills better than the best of them and features an integrated SWAT door in the downtube to store your gear! Out back, you've got 135mm of trail-taming FSR suspension. Up front—RockShox's Revelation devours rough terrain while asking, "What else you got?" Lightning-quick Roval wheels and slick-shifting 2 x 10-speed gearing with an XT Shadow Plus rear derailleur make up the drivetrain, while dependable Shimano brakes deliver premium control. Factor in the Specialized Command Post IRcc and you've got a genuine trail slayer that's ready to get out and do some work.

I test rode a range of 29ers and 650b bikes before settling on the Stumpjumper. It was easily the most balanced of the 29ers I tested and for the trails I ride in Wellington its been bliss. These are a mixture of technical climbs and descents which can push rider and bike hard. The FSR corners as well as any of the 650bs I tested, but with the added plus of the sheer momentum the 29s provide. In short, It doesn't have any right to go around bends as well as it does. I've probably gained about a 20% increase in performance(and fun), primarily due to confidence to ride up, down and over obstacles that I struggled with before. As a package it's great value, I've added an after-market dropper but will otherwise I can see myself onky looking to upgrade as parts wear out. Given the mix of components, that could take some time.
