Just not sure about the wheels. Have some Parralax XT with Ground Masters or maybe some Spinergy Spox with Smoke/Dart? What do you think?

Dude, you have a lot of Specialized's. I hope you dont mind a slight thread jack for a second......you might be able to help me. I have a 95 FSR Sport with the coil RST shock in the rear....I need to replace it...do you have a Fox Alps or Risse rear shock laying around? I would take it off your hands....

Now, back to your bike....Looks amazing so far. I love Stumpy's.

Sorry mate, no shocks in the shed... But remind me, these FSR's take a 150mm shock?

Ah, thanks for the reply man. I am pretty sure it is 150mm, its a very hard shock to find, very short stroke I think maybe 1.5" of travel maybe 2" at the most.

Specialized must have Specialized tyres IMHO. This will be good!

Call me Mr. Boring but I like the XT/Ground Control wheelset combo.
