I have a 2006 Stumpjumper FSR Comp and have the opportunity to get a newer 2008 Stumpy FSR Comp. I notice a few differences.

The 2006 Frame is M4, 2008 is M5. As well, the rear shock on the 2006 passes through the seat tube and mounts to the top tube, whereas on the 2008 is mounted to the downtube, near the BB, and the linkage goes around the seat tube.

Also, the shifter/derailleurs on the 2008 are SRAM (X9 on the rear), whereas the 2006 are Shimano (XTR rear derailleur, LX front, Deore shifters). Also, an extra 20mm of travel on the 2008 Fox Float fork.

Both bikes are in near mint condition. I stand to lose about $100 - $300 if I go for the 2008. Is it worth it?
