Like New/Excellent condition Hope Pro II Evo hubs. Love the hubs but have since given up XC/AM, and there are better hubs for DJ. These were laced and on my XC/AM bike but I've moved the rims to another bike so I could sell these. 32 hole. Rear is silver, front is black. 9-10spd compatible aluminum free hub body. Comes with 20mmx110 front spacers and 135x10mm rear bolt-on axle, caps and bolts, or I can swap it out to the QR axle and caps if you choose. Or you can take both axles for the rear hub for $250 Buyer pays shipping and paypal fee. Pickup and cash friendly if you're willing to drop into Middlebury or Rutland VT.

This is a SRAM mixed 1x drivetrain. Includes: PC 971 chain, cut for a 1x9 drivetrain on a Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Evo 11-34T SRAM PG990 cassette. Gently used. SRAM X7 rear shifter- also lightly used and stillin great condition. SRAM X0 blackbox short cage rear derailleur. Mildly beat up but still shifts perfectly, is straight, is crazy light and has enough spring tension to twist your arm off. Will consider adding a 104BCD 32T RaceFace N/W single ring (black, used) for an additional $20. Local pickup or buyer pays shipping. I work in Middlebury, live in Rutland, and regularly make trips to Burlington and to NH, so feel free to ask to meet somewhere. Expect $15 USPS priority.

2011 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Expert Evo frame. Sale includes a SRAM PF30-73mm EU adapter installed, a PF30 BB for SRAM cranks an X9 DMD 2x front derailleur, a headset for tapered forks, and a QR seatpost binder/collar. Selling for no other reason than that I realized that I love dirt jumping way more than XC/AM. 145mm travel. Tapered head tube with integrated headset (headset with 1.5" crown race is included). FOX RP23-S with rebound and compression adjustments. PF30 bottom bracket (EU adapter installed and included, SRAM PF30 BB included) ISCG-05 compatible and IS disk mount. DMD front derailleur. (SRAM X9 front derailleur included) 34.9mm OD seat tube for 30.9mm seat posts (Seat post collar included) 135x10mm dropouts. I am the second owner and have been very careful with this frame- the most it's been through under me is a few runs down Easy Rider at Highland, with me logging less than 40 total miles on it. There are many scratches on it from being ridden by its original owner in rocky Arizona, but these are all superficial and do not affect the integrity of the frame. There is also a small dent in the right seat stay that is maybe 1cm in length. It is barely 2mm deep and does not affect the ride at all- I didn't notice it at all until I happened to stumble upon it with my eyes. This is an awesome frame, and makes an awesome all-around bike. The suspension stays active under braking and is good at reducing pedal feedback, and is light enough to be built sub-28lbs if you do it carefully. I had her built with a 150mm fork and it felt perfectly balanced between the front and rear. She's the best bike I've ever owned for climbing. Recommended fork travel is 150mm (529mm axle to crown). Had this built up complete. If you're looking for more than just the frame, let me know and maybe I can add in some of my previous build for it for a little extra. http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bikes/archive/2011/sjfsr/stumpjumperfsrexpertevoframe Local pickup preferred, but will ship at buyer's expense via Paypal (Current estimate for shipping is about $65 via USPS to western US, less if closer to VT).

Vt, you just described three of my local "trails". Of course I live three hours from you, at the most.

Specialized's patent did not cover shock orientation but was more about the suspension pivots. If you look at Transition's earlier designs, one of the pivots was on the seat stay- now has been moved to the chain stay. First thing I noticed was how similar the giddy up layout was to Specialized between '06 and '10. Google 'specialized pitch' and see fir yourself.
