Thoughts on two older FSR's and newer Santa Cruz
Looking at a couple of used bikes for sale in the $750 to $850 range, any preferences between these three? Would be my first mtb and looking at mostly riding trails to start.
Looking at an '04 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Elite:
(first pic) 2004 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Elite
- Upgraded front and rear brakes
- Upgraded XTR on rear
Always maintained by professional bike dealer.
Good condition with normal use.
(second pic) 2011 Santa Cruz Superlight DXC:
Front Suspension Fork RockShox Reba RLT, 120mm-travel
Brakes Avid Elixir 1 Disc Brakeset 160/160
Cassettes Shimano, 10-speed: 11-36
Cranks Shimano Deore FC-M590 Crankset 175mm 42/32/24
Front Derailleurs Shimano Deore
Handlebars Easton EA30
Rear Derailleurs Shimano SLX RD-M662 SGS Rear Derailleur
Saddles WTB Volt Sport
Shifters Shimano Deore
Rear Shock Fox Float R 7.875"x 2" (200x50mm)
Wheels Mavic XM 119 rims laced to Shimano M525 hubs w/ DT 14 gauge
(3rd pic) and I believe an '07 Specialized FSR XC:
Medium size frame, 26" tires, Shimano Deore LX, avid juicy five hydraulic disks, rock shox Tora and x-fusion suspension, platform pedals included. Overall the bike is in excellent condition and has not been abused.
Tried to find reviews, but really want to know if these are now outdated and if there are better buys for the $?
Appreciate the help!
