    2007 Stumpjumper - Good Deal?

    A guy in my neighborhood is selling a 2007 Stumpjumper FSR Comp - wants $500 for it.

    He says the bike has been barely used. However, it rides well and seems to be in good condition, bar a few scratches.

    He says the bike is as bought, no modifications. So specs would be per this:

    2007 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp FSR - BikePedia

    Is $500 a good deal for this bike? Feels expensive for a 7 year old bike.

    Pros/cons of this bike? If I bought it, what components if any should I look to upgrade?

    Many thanks.

    Sounds like a good deal to me, too! Double-check the parts on the bike vs. the BikePedia reference if you're concerned about it not being completely stock. If you and/or the guy in your neighborhood are not super knowledgeable with how a bike works or bike maintenance, ask him if you can bring it to a shop for a quick safety check and once-over (see if he wants to come along, too). Your shop should do that for free and they'll give you an honest opinion on it's worth and what parts it may need (assuming the guy who helps you knows a few things...). Either way, it still is a good deal in my opinion. If it's your size and functioning without any issues, get it.

    Agreed with above - take it to your local Specialized shop for a safety check and their general opinion of it's condition. It's a very good deal if it's in nice condition. Bought one new in 2007 and it's still a great bike - very durable and lots of fun. Have not had to upgrade anything although the brakes howled even when fairly new. Better now with newer technology brake pads.
