and... there is a huge difference to my old bike, Intense Tracer Vp.

Specialized is much stiffer, lighter and suspension is smoother!

I like it a lot!

lookwise i'm not that much of a fan of the specilized mtb frames except for this one and the sx. looks really nice! i guess its a custom build, right?
what bar width are you riding? and what model are those panaracer tires? guess conditions are pretty muddy in finland?

Well... it came as full bike, Stumpjumper Expert Carbon Evo.
So far bar, stem, saddle, front derailleur and cranks have been changed.
I do have also Enve seatpost waiting for days I dont need dropper post.

Yesterday I did change also wheels, now with Mavic 819 and red King-hubs.

Tires are Panaracer Rampage SC, best that I have tested. Only they wear out quite fast...

Bar is 720mm
