    2003 Stumpjumper, early Christmas Present

    I really wanted a Stumpjumper, but the cost of a new one is just out of reach for me. I was watching CL for bike stuff when this 03 came up. I really wanted the newer frame design of the 04-06, but when the guy negotiated the price to $450, I couldn't resist. I took it for a couple of short rides and the only changes I had to make for a perfect fit was to raise the seatpost about 1/2 inch.


    The only non-original parts are the Shimano hydraulic brakes were replaced with Avid mechanicals. I can live with that. Also, the original Manitou Axle Super fork was replaced with a 06/07 Fox F-100 RL. Oh yeah, I can live with that change.
    I figure at the price I paid I've got some room for repairs/upgrades. Certainly the tires will need to be upgraded and I'd like to replace the Specialized cranks with Hollowtech Shimano cranks. So anyway, Santa, thanks for the early delievery

    I just picked up a 2004 Stumpjumper FSR for $600 and am thrilled with it. New cables, chain, seat, tires, disk brakes straightened and shock re-charged, so for another $100 I have a great ride. Don't have a picture, sorry.

    I would gladly have paid the extra $150 to get the 04 frame instead of the 03. The 04 is a significant improvement over the 03. Good luck with it.
