    Stumpjumper value

    Hi everyone-
    I hope this is in the right forum. I just rode a 2010 enduro and now I have to have one. I knew that would happen but I did it anyway.
    My question is how much do you think I can get for my stumpjumper when I sell it in the spring? IT's an '07 fsr comp I bought new in '08 but it has a lot of mods: X9 derailleurs, x9 shifters, race face team rings, E13 bash guard, Joplin R seatpost (fresh updated guts from crank bros. never used) Easton havoc wheels (3 months old), Dirty 30 bars, Specialized titanium format seat, Top end Sram cassette, and a top end chain. IT also will include a full spare bolt set for the frame and all the tools and bearing to rebuild the havoc wheels.
    any opinions on what it might sell for? Thanks!

    Ufortunately, full suspension bikes don't hold their value very well. The Stumpjumper also redesigned this year so you have that working against you too. When I sell a bike I usually watch e-bay to see what they are going for and that will give you a ballpark figure. If it is in good shape and a few years old, I would say roughly half of what you paid for it new. I would also take off any upgrades that you might be able to use on the new bike. Most of the time they will be worth more to you than adding value to the sale.

    Good luck!!!! And I hope you enjoy the new Enduro. I have one and I love it!!!!!

    Totally agree with jrob1775..

    Exactly.
    50% of the initial value is what works.

    Thanks. All that stuff new plus the bike new is about $3300. Does $1650 seem fair?

    upgrades usually don't contribute much value to a used bike. $1650 seems very high for a comp-level bike that is now 2 generations old. the MSRP on that bike was $2200.. don't know where you got $3300 since the upgrades you mentioned aren't nearly worth $1100, even new. $1200 is a more realistic price.

    Joplin 230, X9 front and rear about $100, shifters about $80, Wheels $450, bash guard $30, Rings $65, Seat $100, bars $65, Cassette $65. That's $1120 all together.

    Pricing

    A friend of mine had $6200 into a freeride bike, he just sold it for $2300 and it was in great shape. Like stated above, when the frame design changes a lot the earlier models drop a lot.

    Kind of like throwing up, its better to get it over with.
    This is why I only trade up every 5 years. You get bent over...

    the bike came with an X9 rear, not trying to start anything, just wondering why you would replace it with the same thing (maybe a different cage length)?

    IIWM, I'd ask 1500, and take 1300...
