    2007 Stumpjumper Expert or 2008 Stumpjumper Comp??

    So I'm finally upgrading to full suspension but now have a choice to make. For about the same price, and both of which are in great shape, I'm trying to choose between the 2007 Stumpjumper Expert or the 2008 Stumpjumper Comp. I've been doing research and looking on specialized website and I just don't know which one will be better. The 2008 has a different suspension set up. Any advice there? Does the Expert have enough upgrades to make it worth the older model? Thanks for the advice!

    Personally I would go with the expert. Better drivetrain. Better rear shock. I would rather have the Talas fork if its an all mountain bike.

    2007 Expert
    MSRP New: $3,300
    BBB Value:
    $1,314 (Like-New)
    $1,252 (Excellent)
    $1,127 (Good)
    $839 (Fair)

    2008 Comp
    MSRP New: $2,400
    BBB Value:
    $1,002 (Like-New)
    $955 (Excellent)
    $859 (Good)
    $640 (Fair)

    Take these values with a grain of salt though...

    Can't fault my 2007 Stumpjumper Expert

    I have no experience with the 2008 Comp but if it's any use I recetly got hold of a 2007 Expert and I LOVE it. Awesome ride. Rear shock is great and it literally flies downhill.
