    Used bike? Full suspension? I am looking****

    I am looking to upgrade to a full suspension bike. Budget would be 1000-1500. I would need to find used. If anyone is willing to make a great deal with me I would be very greatful. I am ridding more and more. Need a good 120-150mm travel bike. Medium. I love this sport but just don't have the kind of cash flow to ride the good stuff. I ride a iron horse hard tail right now. It's pretty rough. I borrow a friends stuntjumper frs 27.5, which is super nice. Got pretty use to clipless now.

    Any suggestions or offers would be great. Thanks in advance.

    I wouldn't pay $1100 for that. Maybe $800

    Dang that first bike sounded nice but didn't know the brand. The seconded on was too old. I need something that will last for 5 yrs at least. The sj 2011 is in great shape. Why don't u like the bike? I heard only good things about specialized sj.

    I was talking about the first link in the post above. Not sure about the stump jumper as there's no pics of it, but I'd look for something a little newer if you want it to last 5 years. The 08 sj is too old imo

    I have a friend with a Santa Cruz Blur frame (large) that is looking to sell it. Includes a Fox vanilla 140mm fork. Sweet deal. Ping me if you are interested and I can hook you up.

    A pretty okay deal if it isn't thrashed. Did you get it yet?

    Yes I just bought the specialized stumpjumper fsr comp 2011. It is in great shape. I'm really happy that it looked even better in person.

    Medium. Ya I feel like it's exactly what I needed. Would of liked 27.5 wheels but I think 26's will be fine to stay with.
