    Is this a 2009 FSRxc Pro?

    Is this a 2009 FSRxc Pro?



    The guy that is selling it says that it is a 2009 demo. I was under the impression that it was only offered in silver. BTW he is asking $1200 for the bike so if it is a 2009 he is asking considerably less that what is should retail for.

    Thanks guys! I hope to be spending more time on here very soon!

    Ive seen that demo bike before with that wood color on ebay and im pretty sure i remember it being a Pro. but aside from relying on my memory you can look at it and see it has a FOX rear shock (Pro XC is the only one that comes with a fox rear shock). So i believe it is a Pro xc. About the color you are correct it only sells in silver but that is a demo bike provided to the shop by specialized so people can come in and test ride it w/out messing up bikes they plan to sell to customers as "new".But if you want to be sure check some of the specs online like Avid Juicy 4 RSL Hydraulic Disc Brakes, Rock Shox recon Sl front susp. etc and compare them with that bike.

    $1200 sounds like a good price for and XC Pro. im sure it hasnt been beat up that bad.
    good luck, hope i helped

    The wood color is kinda weird in person..I have seen a stumpy with it. For $1200 I would snatch it up, that's a hell of a deal if it's in good shape.
    If you don't like getting attention....I wouldn't buy it though.

    Thanks D1BSI and larlev. I wish I could see this bike in person but there is no need for it now. I made my way down to my local dealer and it appears that the bike would be to big for me. It's a large frame and I'm more suited to a medium. $1200 is a smoking deal (granted the bike is in the condition he says it's in). Looks like I will have to wait a little bit longer before I find that perfect bike for me.

    what if you bought it and resold it for a profit, or traded frames or something??
    if it is a really good deal, that seems like a good idea to me.

    I was just at my LBS and looked at the same bike! Its a 2008 FSR XC PRO test bike with a wood design...looks really cool IMO. Reba SL front shock, Fox Triad rear. Its a really nice bike and the shop has it for $1,600.
