New 2019 Specialized Stumpjumper morphs into two models in two wheelsizes

Rachael is happiest on two wheels, she's been riding bikes for a good few years now after horses got too expensive! Partial to a race or two Rachael also likes getting out into the hills with a big bunch of mates. She's been writing for a long as she's been riding and is equally happy getting stuck into a kit review as she is creating stories.

Ah, hush my mouth! I've just looked at the US site. They do get an alloy version of the new bikes with the "sidearm" frame. Perhaps not the most PC moniker considering. So just us poor Euros who have to settle for an "old" bike if we can only afford an economy version.

Love the ad vid though must say. Nice to see some humour being used.

Looking at the Spesh (UK) site shows the 2 alloy comp models as 650b or 29/fattie6. So I guess the alloy versions of the new Stumpy are not yet available or Spesh are being a little naughty claiming the revised model is available carbon or alloy. 

I don't like picking holes but when the ad copy claims "we're eliminating the b#ll$hit" this sticks in the craw. If the Ally versions are to come, fine but don't lump the "old" model in with the new ones.
