Glenn Bell at Bitterbrush Cycles in Lyons, CO is building two sweet bikes.
1) Ultimate badass S-Works Tricross.
I decided to rock drop bars and road-bike controls (thanks for everyone’s input).
The spec is all about rippage/dollar rato: Ultegra drivetrain, Avid brakes, Sun Wheels, WTB saddle, BBB bar/stem/seatpost and Vittoria tires (OK, not cheap, but sweet).
2) New 2010 Stumpjumper.
We’re using the same exact parts from the 2008 Stumpy, so I can provide an accurate comparison (and not spend money).
I LOVED the connected feel of the 2008 Stumpy with Specialized suspension; my new model has Fox suspension, less pedal platform, slacker geometry and more travel. I think it’ll ride like a light Enduro; we’ll see.
Sweet. Thanks Glenn!

Here’s the Mighty 2010 Stumpy.
– It’ll get my Speedball seatpost.
– I’m hoping for 2010 Fox 32 fork, but for now this 2007 32 Talas will continue to rock.
