Brand new, Stock apart from 50mm stem which I'm trying and minus the command seatpost as I dont like it. I got it for 2000 rrp 2999.

That's a nice bike indeed. Roval wheels looks ace, what was wrong with the command post?

Very nice bike. And that second picture looks like an advert for Specialized.

I never really understood what the 'Evo' part was on the Stumpjumpers. It's relatively obvious on the Enduro, but I can't see what's changed here?

A fair bit, Head angle a degree and a half slacker, lower bb and more travel than standard stumpy. A few other bits and peices too, its a great ride!

Roval wheels are great I was going to change them for hope hoops but so far I'm impressed so will keep them. The command post kept slipping, not the post but the saddle, it would tilt back dangerously when you go over a bump no matter how hard you tighten the single bolt that holds it on! Poor design, its in the shed whilst I decide what to do with it ie complain to Specialized.

Cheers, Depends what sort of hardtail it is I suppose. 50mm prob too short though unless its a slack head angle with wide bars. I have a Marin hardtail with 69 head angle and 680 bars, 70mm was too short and twitchy so I guess 50mm would be terrible. Just got a sunline V1 50mm stem from chain reaction for 30 quid which is a bargain.

I've got a 70mm stem on my Vitus which combined with 120mm forks and 685mm bars gives a very confident handling ride that still has enough reach to get down and pedal hard on the climbs.
