Sounds like a good deal I'm looking for 762mm 30" I got a 720 comming in the mail let me see if that's a flat bar or if 10mm is too short of a rise. Did you remove the stem? I'm looking for a 60mm. I got a cheep one but it looks too thin might take it back.

I bought a cheep $30 60mm stem but it does not look confidence inspiring.
I've been looking a the Specialized web site and the top tube length has gotten shorter, the bars are wider (720) and the stem stayed the same at 75mm from the 2011 to the 2015 stupjumper comp.

The mechanic at the Arizona Cycle seemed to have a different idea of bike fit but I told him everyone was saying get a shorter stem even Mt. Bike action said lots of peps are going short stem wide bar. I guess I should try my 75mm and go from there.

I've gotten a chance to ride my 720mm Bar it's Wide the steering seems fine but my hands go numb even faster than before, after my 1st mile (I used to have numbness after my 1st hour of riding) I don't think I need to go any wider but a riser may be better for me. I'm using the 75mm stem I had. I guess I could try a shorter stem.
