Specialized Stumpjumper: Why A Trail Bike Is The Best MTB Choice

While we document #ZeroToHero: Journey from Roadies To Mountain Bikerswhere two amateur roadies venture into the mountain biking world, Specialized has chosen a trail bike, the Specialized Stumpjumper Comp Carbon 27.5, as our ride throughout this journey. 


“The terrain of trails in Singapore – roots, rock gardens, and flowy singletracks – implies that the mountain bike has to be versatile to carry through obstacles confidently.” -Benedict Chen, Specialized Regional marketing lead (Asia)



Our Bikes: Specialized Stumpjumper Comp Carbon 27.5

The Stumpjumper from Specialized is a great bike to have if you want to ride in a variety of trails in Singapore. Once you get to the trails in Chestnut and Bukit Timah, the appreciation of what this bike can do will become more pronounced.

Stumpjumpers have been around since 1981, but for 2019, Specialized has created an all-new Stumpjumper frame: a FACT 11m, full carbon chassis and rear-end that comes in a 27.5 Trail Geometry.

It also comes with a threaded Bottom Bracket, fully enclosed internal cable routing, and 12x148mm dropouts. This frame is built to be able to fit a three inch rear tire.
