    Specialized Stumpjumper FS -- How much is it worth?

    I have a Specialized Stumpjumper FS. It has front suspension, is in great condition, and is from about '96 though I'm not sure.

    There are some pictures below. If you know what model this may be please tell me.

    How much do you think I should try to sell it for?

    That bike's older than a '96. An upper end specialized would have been threadless by '96. V-brakes came around in like '95 and that black LX ended around '94. ... and that's one of the rebranded mag21 forks, which were outmodded by the judy around 95 as well.

    Because of the nature of an air oil fork aging poorly with minimal maintenance, I'd say around $200 if you find the right person that remembers the bike fondly.

    Edit: it's a 1993.
    The 1994 had an aheadset (threadless) and the next generation of LX shifters with the optical gear displays.

    Thanks a lot. I'll try selling it for 230 and see how things go!

    I'm located in Orange, CA. I'm not sure the size of the bike, i'm about 6' 1" and it's a little too small for me. I'll try to find out the exact size today.

    You're in a buyer's market area. My prediction is you will be able to get no more for it than the going price at an area pawn shop.

    We'll see! Apparently it's about a 19" frame, and is just barely too small for me. One positive aspect of the bike too is that the frame is a Tange Prestige made in Japan. AND that the gears all still work. Despite it's age it is in pretty great shape.
