Specialized S-Works Stumpjumper


A 3rd hand story from Chris:
Via a friend of a friend, he was riding behind this rider when he heard a loud crack, the rider was OK, no further info at this point.
This bike has an MSRP of $7700, we are in a recession, who can afford this type of money for a disposable bike?

That's a lot to spend on a mtn bike frame. Carbon fiber and mtn bikes never seem like a good combination to me. If I was sponsored and supplied the frame maybe. But I still wouldn't ride it on certain terrain.

I'd like to buy the broken frame from you if I can; email me. ajgold04 at gmail dot com

I just got this exact bike! I hope mine doesn't fail like this.

PS no I didn't pay full retail for it.

Totally crash related after having owned, trained and raced on it for a year. Has to be more to the story than what is posted...

Specialized has a lifetime warranty on all frames against manufacturer defect. take it to your nearest specialized dealer if thats a legit, non-crash failure
