    Did you pay MSRP for Stump Jumper FSR 29?

    I have a shop that is selling the SJ at the $3000 msrp just like the site and they told me that Specialized are so in demand that they sell for MSRP, not a cent lower.

    My LBS quoted me 5% off of that $3K. I looked for two months and found an almost new 2012 for $1500. There are options if they wont help you out. Or.....see if they'll throw in a dropper for you or something that you need?

    Ya they are not giving you a good deal. My LBS is selling it for 2,700 and get a 10% gift card of the purchase price as well. This is in Golden, Colorado. Where are you located?

    got my 2013 for 2700 including shimano 520 pedals. I've heard 2700 is the lowest they are allowed to sell for so they throw in extras to be able to compete against other shops.

    My LBS gave it to me at about 8-9% under MSRP, because it was coming in and going out the door immediately.

    Ok so the price out the door is all over the place judging from the thread.

    From the looks of it, it seems like everyone is either getting some kind of discount or deal compared to just straight up MSRP. I would tell your dealer of some of these deals and see if maybe he can do a price match or work with you a bit. If not, see if there are any other Specialized dealers in the area.

    My 2012 was 10% below MSRP, plus 30% off accessories, clothing, etc., with the standard tune-ups and adjustments for a year. It wasn't a steal of a deal, but demand was high and they were selling quickly. The support from the LBS has been excellent. No regrets at all.

    I paid under MSRP for my Epic, but I also had a connection to that was the sole reason for the discount (and my purchase). I'd be curious to know how many posters had some sort of connections at LBS they bought from. I'd wager to say that a frequent customer might get a better deal than a fresh face to the shop.

    10 percent off msrp. Plus i pay cash, another 10 percent off. Spesh actually mark up msrp so most shop can claim they are on sale for 10 percent off. Do yourself a favor and walk away from a dealer that said spesh are in such high demand that they cant take a cent off. Go to another dealer and be happy.

    Over the weekend I ran into a LBS and got quoted on a 2013 SJ FSR Comp Carbon 29 for $2,799. Summer sale they call it, as the others I have seen at other shops were marked down to $3,699. Both sizes were marked down, so definitely not an issue with a specific bike they are trying to get rid of.

    About to jump on that deal. What do you guys think?

    Sure!

    I think it's a typo, but let's hope not! Best price in my area will be in August at $3280, if still in stock...

    Not a typo, I was in the store physically Saturday and put a deposit down. Both the M and XL ones were the same price. Almost too good to be true.

    I have scoured the Utah and NV bike shops. Found a place in SLC in can get a Stumpy FSR Comp 29er for $2650 also 10% all bike related products for 2 weeks. Also found another shop that will sell for $2,700 plus 10% all bike merchandise for 2yrs. Most all shops in NV are $3,000 and no incentives.

    Do you guys think 3k for a barely ridden 2013 carbon comp fsr is worth it? It has shimano xtr brakes installed and a dropper post as well.

    Yeah I'm just concerned about that the warranty does not transfer though. He bought it in april so I'm assuming it is still in good condition. He has all the receipts proving he bought the bike and it wasn't stolen or anything.

    The deal you're getting compensates you for the loss of warranty. I have bought several used Specialized bikes and have found that the high quality generally trumps the need for a warranty.

    Warranty

    Key Word above (GENERALLY) I have almost never hear about a new MTB that has not gotten some type of warranty repair. See mine Below

    2002 Giant NRS Too much to remember 3-4 Frames replaced under warranty, Multiple Manitou front shocks which kept breaking the travel adjust, Wheel if I recall correctly

    2004 Stumpjumper had Fork Seals, DW link bushings X 3 or 4, 1 or 2 rear shock rebuilds maybe more all covered under warranty.
    2006 Racer-x New Rear Triangle New Front Triangle both covered under warranty
    2008 Epic had about 20 AFR rear shocks repaired or replaced under warranty
    2008 Racer X 0 Problems and I still own it,
    2012 Cannondale Flash had New Avid Brakes, 1 Lefty Rebuild, and I have only had it 6 months.

    I know that Specialized has been warrantying POS avid brakes, and rear hubs with known issues. Not sure on the models and specifics but there are recalls Almost every new bike I have owned has had warranty work done that would total 1000 or more if I had to pay for it out of pocket. The Warranty has Value.

    After over twelve years of shopping at the same shop and buying 4 MOOTS bikes and 6 S Works bikes from them along with various Zipp, Easton, Mavic, Reynolds wheelsets and all kinds of other high end components and clothes and shoes etc... You do get a special deal off retail from time to time it's called customer loyalty.

    Here is a tip if your seriously in the market for a 2014 and how we have purchased our last two S Works epics a S works stumpjumper and got a great deal.

    The Specalized dealer camp is coming up next month and thats where they go to see all the new stuff for next year then they come back and make their orders for next years inventory that they start getting mid-summer.

    The photos and info of the new bikes will leak out in the internets and you'll have a pretty good idea of what the new stuff is gonna be before your dealer even gets back from the camp.

    That is the time to act as soon as he gets back from the dealer camp while he is making their initial new year bike model have them add in the bike you want.

    if they can get a pre-sale order that is gonna be paid for before it even hits the showroom that's easy money since as soon as the bike comes in it's leaving the shop that day.

    I've gotten our last three bikes that way and was out riding them while others were waiting. I got the 1st 2010 Cannondale flash carbon 29er in the state of Texas a few years back by doing exactly that and I got the 2011 S Works epic a year later without even riding either beforehand and both below retail and the hype.

    Keep in mind that I ride quite a bit probably around 8-10 hours per week almost all on trail so I can rack up a lot of use in the 1 year warranty period. I also ride rocky terrain that is hard on bikes. So I know that I have more problems then average. Im just saying there is value in the warranty its not just something that comes with the bike that nobody ever uses. If its not better then 40% off msrp new might be a better option.

    I agree with the 40% off figure. But isn't the FSR carbon expert 29 a $5800 bike?

    Went to a dealer Saturday in DC that had Carbon Comp Stumpy 29's marked down to $2799. CRAZY. Said that specialized had just released a "list" of bikes to blow out and most of them were carbons. My buddy is snagging one up quickly! Be on the lookout!

    It was the 2013...the black and white one. Killer deal. He lead us to believe that the list was "out" on which bikes needed to be blown out and had an abundance of stock leftover from Specialized. If you are shopping for a leftover, I think the time is NOW. They had the bike in M, L and XL.
