    After 6 depressing months of having no trail bike, I finally got my new one built up today.



    2013 Specialized Stump Jumper FSR Expert Carbon EVO

    Weighing in at 25.25lbs. I will see how it rides tomorrow. Pretty excited. :weee:

    Well, that didn't take long. Got about 30 miles in on the bike this weekend before my shoulder dislocated randomly in a berm. No crashing or anything, it just popped out. This is also the same shoulder I've had surgery on x2 before. Haven't had any issues since the last surgery a couple years ago.

    Quite disappointed to be honest. I've even been doing shoulder strengthening exersizes etc the last couple years to avoid this type of thing from happening.

    Besides my shoulder, the bike is killer. I came to the conclusion that I need a slightly beefier fork though. Probably go for the 34 version of the fork when I can afford it.

    Anyways, I have an appointment with the orthopedic doc this Thursday to diagnose what the **** happened in there. Pretty sore today.

    Sorry to hear that your shoulder is giving you trouble already.

    Did you ride the new trail in Pogonip yet? I hit it for the first time today. Very nice!

    Yeah, things got worse this morning. It dislocated again while moving my arm onto the armrest of my chair. Took longer to get back in and was more painful. FML.

    I have ridden the new trail out there, its pretty awesome. Actually took a couple photos out there this weekend on the new bike:









    You can also see a little bit of my new leg tattoo. I will post some new photos of it when its totally healed up.
