I bought this Monday from Craigslist. Originally, I called to check out a stump jumper frame he had but it was too big so he said he had a Mt Tam Frame with Rock Shox Sid fork for $70. I jumped in my car and drove 45 minutes to where the seller was. The frame and fork had Oxidation but managed to clean it up with sand paper and blue polish.
As I was looking around, I told him I liked the components on the Stumpjumper and asked him if he wanted to part with them. He did so gave me all the parts below for $105. (They look like the original parts for the Mt Tam minus the Avid V brakes.

I will also switching my brakes to Moto since I race motorcycles. I got into mountain biking because I thought it was a good training tool for motorcycle racing and now I'm hooked.
A few things Mountain biking has helped me in is strengthening my legs, getting used to the rear stepping out, and basically getting used to riding conditions unthinkable on the race track.
