2014 Stumpjumper FSR Expert Carbon EVO
I just spent the weekend teaching on a 2014 Stumpjumper FSR Expert Carbon EVO 29. The bike rips up and down, and you can get a screaming deal on it.
I have two full seasons on a Stumpy 29, and I’ve spent the past season on an Enduro 29 and Camber 29. The Enduro is a 12-inch chef’s knife. The Camber is a 6-inch fillet knife. Both great tools for different jobs. This Stumpy EVO splits the difference with a nod toward bigger chopping.
This bike is in the Trail Head Cyclery demo fleet, and it’s in great shape. All parts are stock, and the whole bike just plain works. Size is medium.
Current list: $4,199
Get it for: $3,999 – Tell ’em I sent you.
Trail Head can ship the bike to you.
Know more. Have more fun!

I’ve always been confused about Specialized’s EVO designation. What does it mean? What’s their purpose? They seem to be cheaper in price point than the corresponding non-EVO model. (For example, and EVO model is a couple hundred bucks cheaper than the regular “Comp” model). The Enduro EVOs all have coil shocks. Are they supposed to be more durable? Have less travel?
I just don’t understand their purpose — and not in a way where I’m trying to be contentious about it. It’s just I really don’t understand what EVO is about.
Sorry… I’m looking at the Enduro description, not the Stumpy, which explains a little bit better the whole EVO concept.
Specialized has so, so many models. If you think it’s challenging for consumers, imagine being a small dealer who has to decide which models to stock (and buy).
In general, the EVO models have more travel and slacker geometry than their non-EVO siblings. They’re made for even more shred.
