    Any feedback on a Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Elite Disc Women's?

    My daughter's birthday is coming up and she is interested in a new XC full suspension...would make a nice gift from her dad.

    I have looked at a lot of bikes, including the Trek Fuel 70, Giant Trance 3, Cannondale Scalpel/Prophet, but found a new 2004 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Elite Disc (Women's) at a price that blows all of the others away.

    I've reviewed the reviews but wonder if anyone here has had experience with this bike,,,seems to be a lot of bike for the money and looks perfect for her rides (both wheel on the ground, mostly forest trail)...i hope to see how it fits her on Thursday (hope she doen't catch on), and any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    Specialized is a great choice, I am also looking to buy a new stuntjumper. Have her try the womens version as well as the regular version, as comfort and fit is most important. The geometry is a bit differant. Specialized has been known to offer a bit more for the price, they are a huge company and offer great bikes with lifetime warranties.
    What a great gift, I know she'll be happy.

    you were right on...I didn't realize that there is such a difference between men's and women's bikes...the little kid (just turned 29) rode this bike on a paved city bike path and on an intermediate local trail...she tells me that this is the first time that she came home with no back pain, and now mum is looking at trying a women's bike as well

    who knew?

    thanks again

    Cool, then I assume she loves her new bike. My LBS is in the process of building me up an 06 Stuntjumper 120 as we speak.
