Up for sale is my 2017 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Expert Carbon 650B (150mm/6" of travel front and rear) that was used just for the 2017 season. (I absolutely loved this bike). Through years of selling bikes online, hopefully I've answered some of the most commonly asked questions below. But please, do not hesitate to reach out with absolutely any questions via text, email, or phone call if needed. My number and location are in the details above. Thanks!

Why Selling?:

Plain and simple, I'm planning to get another 2018 Specialized next season. I've ridden a Stumpjumper for the last two years, and absolutely love the model! (Owned a 2016 Stumpy Elite 27.5", then got the 2017 Expert Carbon 27.5"). It is such a great bike! It made me feel so comfortable and confident on absolutely any terrain. It climbs great, but really shines on the downhill and would give anyone confidence on the rougher terrain. With 150mm/6" of travel it was my go-anywhere and ride-anything bike. It is really such a fun and capable bike at the chairlift accessed downhill bike parks too. But for 2018, I am trying to satisfy my inner downhill desires, and hope to get a slightly longer travel trail bike or another trail bike and downhill bike combo. I really have no complaints about the bike, and it really couldn't be in better condition.


Rather than just say the bike is in absolutely incredible condition, here are some details about the bike: Original owner / ridden for one season / both brakes just bled! (this winter) / suspension and seals are in great shape / I put on a new back tire (Specialized Purgatory GRID 27.5"x2.3") later in the season / meticulously cleaned the entire bike / did an ultrasonic drivetrain clean halfway through the season and again this winter as I prepped it for sale - put the cassette, chain, and front chainring/crankarm into an ultrasonic cleaner again (although the chain does have a small amount of rust from the initial storage when winter first hit here, but is now well-lubed and functions great) / and I a derailleur alignment done, but it was straight and shifting well - so the thing is completely ready to ride come spring! On top of that, I've put over $1300 in upgrades on the bike, including an incredible wheelset.


-New Wheels: Spank Spike Race 33 Rims (front and rear, 32-spoke, BLACK, $90/ea), DT Swiss Competition Spokes (BLACK) with brass nipples ($80), laced to a pair of BLUE anodized Hadley Boost Hubs (72 points of engagement and super fast rolling, $315/rear and $165/front). Strong, high engagement, fast, and true wheels. In awesome shape! ($740 + Labor)
-Wheels are set up tubeless ($40 value)
-A pair of Shimano IceTech Rotors, 203mm front (with new bracket) and 180mm rear ($76)
-Chromag OSX 35 Bars (GREY/HYPER GREEN, cut to 775mm, 35mm diameter, up sweep: 5 degree, back sweep: 8 degree, rise: 25mm) ($92)
-Chromag HiFi 35 Stem (BLUE, 1 1/8" steerer clamp, 35mm bar diameter, 3D forging, 35mm extension, 175 grams) ($94)
-Chromag top cap and headset spacers, BLUE) ($26)
-Specialized Power Expert Saddle (155mm wide, HYPER GREEN) ($130)
-Matching HYPER GREEN fork lowers and rear shock vinyl decals ($34)
-Specialized grips with half waffle (HYPER GREEN) ($25)
-Specialized Purgatory GRID 2.3" Rear Tire ($60)
-Mucky Nutz front fender (BLACK) ($15)
-Race Face Crank Boots (HYPER GREEN) - to protect the ends of the cranks ($8)
-Specialized Zee Left Entry Bottle Cage (HYPER GREEN) ($20)
-I'll even throw in my Straitline Flat Pedals (BLUE)

***With Specialized's newer carbon frames, they've designed an access door (see photos) in the downtube where you can open a door under your bottle cage and actually store anything you need in your downtube. I always kept a pump, spare tube, tire levers, medical tape and supplies, and some nutrition in there every time I rode. If you don't like having to wear a backpack, it's the perfect place to store these must-have items where you never have to think about it! So the original two sleeves that hold these items also come with the bike, along with a very very handy multi-tool that actually clips into the frame above your rear shock! No other company has these designs.

Again, please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions about the bike! I would really prefer to meet up in person (and willing to drive halfway), but will consider shipping if payment is done via a secure method. Would love to avoid payment fees though. Cash is king. I can even help you set up the suspension and cockpit if you'd like.

Thanks! Cheers to the almost 2018 season.
