Silent, instant engagement, sprag clutch, yadda yadda yadda, ceramic hybrid bearings, non-boost spacing... If you're considering buying these you likely already know how awesome they are so I'll skip the hard sell and cut right to the specs: Asking $375 OBO for the pair. These bad larrys are used but still in great shape.

Overview: Selling my medium 2016 Specialized Stumpjumper Expert Carbon FSR 650B (27.5). The bike was meticulously maintained throughout its life and everything is in working order. Recently replaced the tires(set up tubeless), and put on new grips for the sale. Rims were recently trued, brakes were bled, dropper internals were rebuilt, preformed fork lower leg service and shock air can service. Cassette, chainring, chain have a lot of life left on them. All photos were taken within the 5 days of the time of posting. The wide range 10-46T cassette with the 30T oval chainring provides similar range to 12 speed drivetrains. Specialized SWAT system - Large storage compartment in the downtube for spare tube/goodies, multitool that clips into the frame, chainbreaker and spare masterlink in the top cap/steerer tube. Fork was upgraded to 160mm Rockshox Debonair air spring and a MRP Ramp Control that lets you dial in your fork progressivity on the fly. The bike shows normal signs of wear - There are a few spots on the frame where the clear coat wore through, but there is no compromised carbon. Small scratch in the anodizing on the air side fork stanchion - no burr.

@Frontrange: Of course they've broken frames, I was just alluding to the fact that their carbon layup offers toughness at the cost of weight as a property of the thermoplastic resin composite. Yes, 300% is a bunch of marketing bs that was likely based off a small sample size test, but the material properties check out.
