Bikes

It’s always a pain to remember exactly which model bike I have when I need to lookup some spec, find a replacement dropout, etc.

2007 Specialized StumpJumper FSR

My “green bike” is a 2007 Specialized StumpJumper FSR, which, incidentally, includes a proprietary rear shock that is not as manly as I am.

MTBR form about the rear shock

It also came equipped with Avid Juicy 5 disc brakes. From Specialized’s page:

FRONT BRAKE Avid Juicy 5, hydraulic disc, G2 Clean Sw eep S/M: 185mm rotor, L/XL 203mm rotor

REAR BRAKE Avid Juicy 5, hydraulic disc, G2 Clean Sw eep S/M: 160mm rotor, L/XL 185mm rotor

I recently trashed the rear caliper in the 2010 Slatyfork Wild 100. They don’t make the Juicy 5’s anymore. I’m trying to figure out if an Elixir R is an acceptable replacement (i.e., will the rotor size be okay, as by default it sells with a 160mm rotor).
