    Have a chance to buy an 04 Stumpjumper FSR Expert Disc today - help me decide guys!

    Hey guys - out of the blue sky today my local shop offered me an 04 Stumpjumper FSR Expert Disc. It was a demo bike and has 350k on it. They are offering me full warranty and service just as on a new bike. The bike doesn't look like it hasn't been abused as there are no scratches on it.

    The price - $2700 Canadian (flat price, no tax, throwing in a free cycle-computer, and other small goodies). This bike retails for $2170 USD. Even when using a standart 1.3 exchange rate and 15% tax, it would come to about $3300. Here in Canada, we never seem to get bikes at MSRP anyways ..

    I know I would probably get a better deal on a bike towards the end of the year, but hey - This bike is my size, and is available now. The shop is a 15 minute bike ride from my house and I love the staff there. Another major deciding point - on Saturday I'll be leaving for a week to Algonquin park - Minnesing mountain bike trails here I come!

    I was originally going to get a new bike after exams - but after I found out I'd be going on vacation (july 7-21) I decided not to do it (didn't want almost new bike standing in my garage). At the time I thought of course it'd be nice to have a bike at Algonquin, but I thought it was impossible because with the time between the 2 vacations I wouldn't have enough time to break in the bike and get used to clipless. However - now with the bike broken in and the shop willing to put some cleap flats on there for now for free (Clipless pedals are still mine), this deal seems too good to pass up.

    Anyways, what do you think guys?

    I'd say, "Congrats on your new bike!"

    That's an awesome deal. If you can wait awhile, Specialized is redoing the Stumpy and Enduro for '05 with Fox's newest forks, more travel, etc. But that deal you're getting is pretty tough to pass up. I'd probably go for it.

    Wow, that's a lot of mileage!

    That's a great bike...you should get it and report your impressions back here.

    Update: (I know, sorry for bumping) I've got the bike and have been enjoying the hell out of it. Just got back from a week long trip to the provincial park. Full bike and trail review to come (hopefully tommorow).. here is a teaser shot:

    I'm going to try to get up to the Minnesing trails as well this year. Never been before, but I hear they're really muddy. How were they? I'll be up at Algonquin on Thursday but on business ;/ what a bummer.
