The 2004 season marks the welcome return of one of the great designs in mountain biking - the lightweight (around 26lb) dual suspension Stumpjumper FSR. (Last year, the FSRs evolved into Epics. While many of us believe that the Specialized Epic with BRAIN automatic lockout is one of the best innovations of the past decade, some riders prefer to ride BRAINless. And save £300 in the process.)
- All new M4 chassis with stripped-down Specialized Enduro-derived Transform Monocoque top tube.
- FSR 4-bar linkage with 100mm-travel - probably the best-proven suspension system in cycling.
