    2007 Stumpy FSR Expert?

    Iím looking for a cheap bike to play around on/take camping. I have a 2018 Fuel EX 9.7 and I donít want to have to worry about it when Iím riding with my kids or camping.

    I havenít looked at it yet but itís allegedly like new and heís willing to take $500

    Cannot give you any meaningful advice without seeing it.
    The suspension of your bike sucks if it's different than mine. Really. It sucks. Big time.

    Dood, if it is in good shape, that's a solid ride. If you can get past the hype surrounding wheel size, you might even enjoy it! 26 still rolls!

    I already have a 29er so a 26'' will be a nice change of pace. I used to ride a 2007 Cannondale Rush SL6 and I loved that thing. That being said, my 29er is awesome and definitely has some big pros.

    I'd still be worried about that beauty! Buy it, and don't leave it unlocked for a second!

    Seems priced a bit high to take only 1/3 off cost of new for a 12 year old bike.
    Are the components on a 2007 model year equal to an entry level modern day bike?

    According to Bikepedia, MRSP was actually $3300 USD. Not quite the top of the line, but pretty close. They've taken over 5\6ths off the cost.

    Nice! I had a 2004 Stumpy Expert, first year the disk brakes were an option. Rode it for 14 years before trading off for a MacBook Pro. Sounds like you're getting a really solid deal. Nice find!

    Yea the stanchions are the fork weíre screwed, both sides were deeply scratched most of the way down.

    I also forgot how freaking small older bikes feel. It felt like I was riding a kids bike.

    500 bucks for a used ride that needs a new shock is not cool. Chalk it up as a learning experience. Not A VRC rider. Your search continues.
    For me, that smallness equals responsiveness and manouverabibilty. It's what I like about 26ers. The stretched geos feel like tanks to me. Jeep vs Abrams. You can probably tell I was a little excited about this bike.

    Most likely Iím going to end up getting a DB Syncír aluminum. With the corporate discount itís $959 and hard to beat. I really do like the stretched geo for just about everything. My Fuel climbs better than any other bike Iíve personally owned and is very capable downhill. We have some techy climbs and descents but nothing super crazy, so the Fuel is nice.
