In the market for a light xc fs bike -- and looking for prior year model "deals", i've found the following at local bike shops: (1) 2003 Specialized S-jumper FSR (base model - ie, no disc brakes, but has Fox Float RL rear shock - can lock out; and manitou axel super fork) for $1000 (lbs will put on avid mechs for $200 if i want); (2) 2004 Specialized XC FSR Pro Disc (shimano hydraulic discs; fox Foat R rear shock, manitou axel plus LO fork) for $1225. Both are Large size ( i'm 6 feet and weigh around 195). If read the various thread discussing both bikes, but i'm interested in any knowledge or opinion re the difference b/t the two model years. Type of riding: I do a lot of xc riding -- no big drops or the like (i don't race). this is my first fs bike. i currently ride a trek ht and love it, but with age and desire to lessen impact on my back from long rides, i want my new bike to be a fs. The Specialized 05s look great and i'd love to get one of those, but prices are pretty high so i'm wondering just how good a deal these options might be. Thanks in advance for the thoughts.
