    Reasonable price for 2006 Stumpjumper FSR Pro?

    Found a 2006 Stumpjumper FSR Pro that I am interested in purchasing. Its in really good shape, right size, etc.

    Any idea what the going rate is for one? I dont want to offend the guy by low balling him, but I think his price is still a bit high.

    TIA!

    Thats exactly the range I was considering offering. He's at $1250, so I doubt we could come together on a price.

    Well I was just guessing. It's pretty old and has 26 inch wheels which are out of style at the moment. I was guessing based on average condition which on a bike that old means its very likely to need a suspension rebuild on either the front or the rear, Probably has a stretched chain and will need a cassette and rings before long. If he can prove that the Fork and Shock have been rebuilt in the last year, and there is little if any chain stretch it might be worth 1250. Most bikes I see if that age range have a few hundred to be spent on maintenance if you want them to proform like they did new.

    It's actually really clean from what I can see from the pictures. He claims it only has 700-800 miles on it which seems reasonable per the pics. He's come down to $1100 at this point, he originally was at $1500.

    He's easily in the ballpark according to BBB. Because it's a 2006 certainly doesn't mean it needs all the rebuilding as suggested. I just bought (actually did a trade) for a 2007 SJ FSR Comp. There are lots and lots of very nice MTB's that were bought for big dollars and seldom ridden and left in garages all over America. Mine was nearly showroom new with it's original tires.

    An '06 SJ, as is my '07, is just as a capable as it's current year version. Let those with money to burn reap the joys of insane depreciation as soon as your new bike rolls out of the showroom.

    Thanks for that.

    This my thought too. I can't bring myself to buy a new bike. 1. I'd get far less bike for the money I have. 2. The finance guy in me can't wrap my mind around accepting depreciation on something like that unless it's a car I run the wheels off (I buy those used too) 3. I at least keep my deprecating cars in perfect shape, which isn't going to happen with a bike I plan to ride hard.

    If its a low miler with its original tires it could be a buy. The bikes that people buy and put away in the garage and never ride are pretty rare. People who drop thousands on new bikes do it because they ride. There are always some gems out there and this could be one of them. If its what you want make an offer. Just don't be surprised if it has a few needs.

    Here is the pictures provided. Like I said, looks to be in great shape. Only thing that seems a bit odd to me, but maybe actually isnt, is that some of the components dont match with specs on Specialized's site. SRAM X9 instead of X0, Avid brakes (?) instead of XT, etc.

    Judging from the pics and considering the market in my area, I'd say that appears to be a very reasonable deal. Very little outward appearance of wear & tear. The cranks aren't even polished up from use! Pending nothing mechanical being wrong, I'd snag it and ride it like you stole it!

    Am I wrong to think it should have hydraulic brakes? They are mechanical, no? Im sure they'd work fine, but dont want a bike that has been canabalized or something.

    (Im obviously getting back into the sport from years off, so tech has changed)

    Yeah, it should have hydro's on it. I'd account for the replacement cost and make him an offer. Again, in my area, I can snag nice quality take off Elixers, Shimano, etc brakes for a song. I'd slap some hydro's back on it.

    Bike

    Well I have just bought a stumpy my self and did some info seeking before
    i bought it .. i am pretty shure that your bike should have XT Hydrolic brakes and a XT ore XTR rear Shifter.. also the carbon bar is not original .. but that does not have to be bad ! the bike looks great and is worth the money. the Sram is a nice peace and if the setup works. . keep it on ..
    i would change the breaks directly into a set hydrolics ..

    Just my 2 cents. .

    ^^That's an '07 model. I had one. A good starter but I'd go over it in person with a fine tooth comb. That fork stanchion looks suspect with possible damage and none of it looks terribly loved for a "for sale" photo. I sold mine last April in cherry condition with a few more upgraded components (brakes, drivetrain) for $800. This one? I'd be offering $500 and walking if denied unless it cleans up when seen in person. Maybe $600. It's got good wheels on it, too.

    Do you have ANY friends that have a bit of experience with MTB? Take one, if so. I'm concerned about what appears to nicks and scratches on that fork. That's not good if they are, in fact, damage spots. Could be dirt, the pictures sort of suck for clarity. Personally, I tend to get a little worried when someone selling something like this doesn't take the time to clean it up a bit. I see it as indicative of how they treat their gear.

    I would search here and on the google of how to buy a used bike. I've seen good articles written on what to look for before buying. I have my thoughts and system but it would be a page of typing.
