Quick look: 2010 Stumpjumper FSR Comp 29
This “look” had to be so quick that I didn’t even have time to set the bike up in a more picturesque setting (if you can call the cinder block wall behind the store “picturesque”…) It’s new owner was already on his way to pick it up.
Now, don’t let the scale fool you – this is indeed the 29’er version of the Stumpy Comp.; it’s just that it’s a size XXL – so the frame is so big that the wheels look normal size!
In my mind, the Stumpjumper 29’ers are great bikes for those who are looking for a bike which will roll over just about anything, handles with enough stability to be forgiving yet enough agility to be exciting, and is still light enough to get up the hills so you can enjoy going down them. The “trail-length” travel and big wheels roll with ease over the bumps and allow an extra margin for error if you don’t pick exactly the right line. Recreational riders to ultra-marathon racers will love the SJ 29’er as long as the trail doesn’t involve too many down-hill switchbacks.
