Meanwhile, at the bike shop …

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.
