There's a 2010 Specialized product release taking place right now in the US at Snowbird Ski Resort. Mountain Bike got the jump on everyone seeing they have been testing the new Stumpy but had been embargoed until today when they posted pics and exstensive details. The big news is it now features 140mm front and rear travel compared to 120mm before, as well as new carbon seat stays, a repositioned and more inline shock and yep, that is a 140mm travel Specialized Future Shock. Minutes ago MTBR posted up a few more images of the 2010 Specialized Carbon S-Works Stumpjumper, 2010 Specialized Epic 29er, and the 27 pound (12.25kg) 2010 Specialized S-Works Enduro. You can check out the full MTBR story here, and the Mountain Bike one here.
