I am thinking of going back to a full susser and after a quick chat with my local specialized outlet, I am torn between the Stumpjumper or the Whyte T120.

Does anyone have any experience with either bike?

I ride mostly trails and single track.

Any help would be appreciated.

    Both very capable trail machines...

    The Whyte has 120mm travel and the FSR 140mm
    On line you can get the stumpy Elite for just over £2k so in the same ballpark as the T120....comparing the two as muck as I love the Whyte the stumpy is far better value with the spec. I would choose the spesh by a mile.

    Though I would also look at the Marin Mount Vision XM8 which shares the same Whyte design linkage, is the same 140mm travel as the stumpy available again for around £2k...I have owned one of these and they are fantastic bikes..so would consider this against the stumpy.
