    No brainer if it's lighter. With all of the Evo's geo adjust options you can probably set the Evo up to pedal every bit as well as the non-Evo Stumpy and run it super low/slack for park days.

    You said yourself you'll be shuttling and park days, so that leans heavily in favor of EVO for her.

    I'm debating upgrading my '19 Stumpjumper to a '22 normal Stumpy or an Evo to try out a big longer and slacker. Struggling to justify the EVO b/c friend who owned one said it really climbs much more like an enduro bike. Almost all of my rides I do care about climbing efficiently and to be a good tech trail climber, which the normal Stumpy does incredibly well. Also comes down to most of my riding crew are on trail bikes more than enduro bikes, so leaning non EVO myself.

    I had a 2022 stumpy carbon and now a 2022 stumpy evo carbon. About 2 - 2.5 lbs difference with exact same build beyond fork, shock, frame. The evo climbs like the difference is greater. However, itís much more confidence inspiring on the way down.

    East or bust, I think youíre on the right track looking at the evo Carbon considering itís a decent value on sale.

    VTskibum, my input is to maybe look at something that might split the difference. I loved the efficiency of the reg stumpy, but felt the 130mm rear end could get overwhelmed quickly. The evo will have loads of traction, but the length may feel unwieldy in tight tech stuff. Maybe the propain Hugene would work?

    Edit: another thought is to maybe downsize on the evo. Iím 6í0Ē on an S4 and curious if I could get comfortable on an S3. Although, Iím saving my loose change in case the Smuggler comes back soon and doesnít cost a fortune (unlikely).

    FWIW, I'm 5-6 and when I rode AC's S2 Evo I almost felt like I could have gone up a size. Just the one ride though and I've never actually ridden an S3, but I'd be surprised if you weren't cramped on an S3.

    S3 is very much a medium on SJs.

    Smuggler is very close, like soon.
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    What have you bought/upgraded today.

    Pulled the trigger on an S4 Stumpjumper Pro before the 25% sale ended this week. Decided that for almost all of my riding the normal stumpy is the right call, also new geo should offset slight loss in travel (10mm f/r) compared to my current one. Borrowed my friends S4 for some of our techy trails and my local ones and think itíll be ideal, especially coming from XC background where climbing tech trails is still really important.

    Only time Iíll really be missing out is in the few times I get something really steep and chundery, when Iíll generally be riding w friends on similar mid-travel bikes.

    Borrowed friends, but same one/color I ordered

    DT Swiss 36t ratchet to replace my painfully slow to engage 18t on the 22 Stumpy Evo i impulse bought late fall when they were on sale. Now maybe another brake bleed to see if I can improve these code RS brakes. The lever throw is pretty bad, takes forever to make contact with rotor.

    Some clearance Giro Prolight Techlace. Sooooo light...almost non-existent!!!
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    I suspect there's logic behind the madness, but I'm too dumb to see it.

    Thatís the first thing I noticed on the GFís new whip. Definitely pretty bad. Fairly certain I have the same brakes on my Enduro and the lever throw is way shorter, so thereís hopeÖ

    Other than that Iím digging it after the first hallway ride

    Same, but got the Evo. Very excited for riding season as I just got a tease of riding it before the snow shut things down. Never thought Iíd be excited about the big S, but fuck it, they are making some nice bikes!

    Evo for me too.

    I kept trying to turn my Switchblade into what the Evo was (Angleset, X2, Cascade Link, etc. etc.). Made some aspects better, didn't fix others, but was also losing what I liked about the SB.

    Epic Evo + Stump Evo = most of my bases covered.

    Ha, Evo for me as well (white with gold accents), and a Stumpy for bigger high-country rides as well.

    I too am two rides in on my stump jumper. First 29 r. Super fast and lots of PRís on slick rock and Navajo Rocks. Should say that I wasnít trying for that, and actually was telling myself to hold back. Need more confidence with the big hoops on Ahab. Pedal strikes are a thing like never before. Probably need to put it in the higher setting. Itís hard to get right when you have to drive 3 hours to get to riding that isnít quite ready.

    I generally ran my Stumpjumper in the high setting with 170mm cranks. With about 30% sag I was getting a lot of pedal strikes in the low setting.
