    what to choose Stumpjumper FSR : 2011 Elite or 2012 Comp

    Hi,

    I am a little newbie and I want to buy a used one. Need some advice about this two.

    I have to choose between :

    - stumpjumper FSR 2011 Elite (avid, shimano)
    Specialized Bicycle Components

    - stumpjumper FSR 2012 Comp (avid, sram)
    Specialized Bicycle Components

    The Elite is cheaper than Comp with 200$.

    Or to buy at half price a Epic Expert FSR 2008, because I am a newbie?

    Specialized Bicycle Components

    I have a sj comp ht 29er 2008 and scot scale 70, 2010 (my girlfriend bike).
    Thank you!

    Here are a few details, side by side, but I don't know how accurate they are

    Elite has the Brain and it's a little bit better specc'd. Being a 2011 one make sure the Brain went trough service already.
    Depending on their specs if they're still OEM ones both bikes have lousy wheels and bad brakes ( brakes can be a hit or miss actually). Other than that two fine machines.
    The 2011 FSR Elite is been my first Specy and still going strong today after I've sold it to a buddy of mine that beats the heck out of it.

    Yes, both are OEM. No adds. Should I go on Elite?
