Choice kit: Troy Lee Designs Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Expert Carbon EVO frame

The Specialized Stumpjumper's a stone-cold classic. The world's first mass-produced mountain bike, winner of countless group tests and now brought bang up to date with carbon, 29er and longer-travel EVO versions. So how the hell do you improve upon a bike like that? Get Troy Lee himself to come up with a typically bonkers custom paintjob, of course.

The gold glitter paint and lightning bolts won't be to everyone's taste but we're sure the 250 limited edition framesets will fly off the shelves when they hit shops this autumn, And don't worry, downhill fans, there's a limited edition S-Works Carbon Demo 8 too. The best news? Pricing of all the TLD specials will be the same as for the standard frames.
