1. The most important thing about buying a new bike is to make sure it fits. The only way you'll know if the bike is right for you is to size up the bike and make sure that the bike's geometry matches your body's geometry. Ask questions and do some research.

2. If possible, try to find a shop that will let you demo the bike on real dirt. Five minutes in a parking lot won't cut it. You wouldn't buy a car without a real world test drive, and a bike should be no different.
3. Don't belive the hype. Just because your favorite rider or best friend rides a certain bike, that doesn't mean that's the best one for you. Have an open mind and be realistic about your needs and ability.

    Help Identify this bike?

    Can anybody tell me what year/model this bike is? He says it's a
    2006 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp. But when I look at
    bicycle blue book, that year/spec bike is blue. Did they make
    frames that were different colors in the same year? Any help
    would be greatly appreciated
    (bicyclebluebook.com link would be perfect!)

    I'm pretty sure that's an 06 modle. Have a friend that used to have one, same colour.

    Looks like Specialized has made frames in different colors for same model. Optional or different market areas. In the Specialized Archives, they show that model in black and blue. 2005 looks grey to me. More detailsed spec might pin it down, except that there were different specs for the same model too, for different market areas.

    The decals match with the 2004 photo in the Specialized archive, but I don't know enough about Specialized to know if that's relevant or not. Saddle, too.

    Looks to be a 2004 Stumpjumper FSR



    The disc brakes could of been added on later.

    The specs for that model indicate that it had disc compatible hubs and the silver sidewalls on the rims could indicate that it used to have rim brakes on it.
