Alex - they ARE making them, but they're not listed in the catalogue. I had this discussion with Specialized after the 2013 launch, and the CDN marketing manager said that they will be in stock.

You'll have to go through a Specialized dealer and place a special order.

They are making a few XL's but I've been told, only a very limited quantity of them. Think ~ 10 of them

First Date: 2012 Specialized Stumpjumper EVO - 26 AND 29!

Nice!

can't wait to read about the outcome of this test.

In one part it's going to be interesting to compare the times, but I have a feeling some people might need a bit more time on the 29er than just back to back rides - especially if this is their first taste of 29ers. 26" is what they know and have been riding for years - therefore it might get the nod.

I know for one that I didn't particularly enjoy my first 29er experience, but with time, it grew on me.

More Bike Info as well as bike riding etiquette (from Seb the skid)

I thought official forum policy was that "Seb Kemp is a Dumb F*ck"? what the hell, now everyone likes him?? ;) nice work dude, love your work!

I just come to the forum when I want to comment on news posts - so I never got the memo.

thanks for filling me in! :fro:

that was one of the best Interbike article I've ever read.

Another article added - Seb rides four bicycles designed for use on uneven surfaces here...

Seb is my new idol…

remind me again why I'm happy I'm NOT at Interbike?

great coverage, way to keep it real.

REVIEW: 2011 Rocky Mountain Slayer 70

You are running a coil aren't you Eamonn. What's your feeling about that? (note - Eamonn rides for us and is sponsored by RMB)

Thanks homie!

REVIEW: 2011 Rocky Mountain Slayer 70

As always, great review Stuart!!

The RM folks don't recommend running a Coil shock on this bike since it relies heavily on Propedal for climbing efficiency and that with a coil it would be too active (e.g. would bob). I know the test bike's RP23 had issues with the propedal setting, but did you find yourself wanting more platform?

Was the shock constant on longer descents? No heating up issues?

thanks!

Anybody know if the rebound control knob at the bottom of the leg is removable so it doesn't get damaged during riding - couldn't find any details on the web site…….

yes and it's there solid - on mine it takes a lot of force to take it out and insert back on. I wouldn't worry about it falling off. Heck even on my WC BoXXer it's never fallen off.

hmm is it removable on the argyle too?

yes - on the 409 and 318 you can use it to adjust the floodgate.

I would buy a nice frame and build it out of used quality parts. Nothing sucks more than having awesome parts on a frame you're not super stoked on.

Check out a chromag stylus frame…I've got one built up as an all mountain bike, but it's totally burly enough to handle whistler..

Chromag also gets my vote!!:rocker:

of course, that's if it's in your budget…

Let the crime begin.....

Oh and just a heads up…I'll be in Whistler next month and my Iron Horse Sunday has the same exact paintjob as the Team bikes - please don't jump me thinking it's Sam's bike!! :S

My bike is a 05 and I don't have the 07 links :)
