    Rockhopper fsr comp or stumpjumper fsr comp

    Currently I'm riding a 2008 GF Pirahna HT. I have found a 2003 Rockhopper fsr comp disf for $400. Its in prestine shape. Also found a 2007 Stumpjumper fsr comp in amazing shape for $1000. I like to do a hit of everything I can with what Iowa terrain has to offer, which actually has some pretty descent trails. Coming from a HT, which bike would be the best all around fit for my type of riding? How does each one stand. I'm kinda leanong toward the Rockhopper based on design and price. What do you all think. I've been riding for three years on same bike and this is my first post here on MTBR.

    Thanx,

    Joe

    I can vouch for the stumpjumper. I've got a 2007 SJ comp, purchased new in 2007. It's been a good, reliable bike. I still ride it as my primary bike. There are many mtbr haters for the "triad" shock it comes with, but I've never had an issue with mine.

    Get the stumpy.

    $400 for a 10 year old Rockhopper seems crazy to me. You could have a new Rockhopper (hard tail 29er) for less than $1000. Seems like you might be focused on full suspension in which case I would say either spend more money or reassess whether or not a HT can meet your needs. That's just my opinion though.
