    '06 vs '07 Stumpy FSR Comp

    I am about to make a purchase and was looking at the '07 model, when I came accross an '06 for about $450 less. Any reason I should get the '07 for more money? I might be buying by the end of the week, so ANY input is of value.

    Thanks!

    Nicer shock link, and the Triad shock on the 07's don't seem to be causing problems like the 06's had.

    Definitely an 07.

    Or get the 06 and replace the shock with a RP23 rear shock. Either from c'dale or PUSH

    I'm not sure if it was only for the Brain equipped model, but a recent MTB mag review on the Stumpy said that the '07 Stumpy was heavier than the '06! Check it out could be another reason to go for the '06.

    Don't know much about the 07 but I do have an 06 with the Pushed Fox RP23. Even in the open setting, pedal bob is not at all noticable like with the crappy triad. Paid $520 with shipping, so pretty close to the price difference you mentioned. Hope this helps.
