    What are your thoughts on the build? SRAM? Shimano?

    Specialized Bicycle Components

    Looks to me like this one. Which would make it a 2005.

    But look at the seat/top tube gusset on your Stumpy verses the 05 and my 06.... ?

    Dex , mine is a XL frame .. 21 inch .. you can see also that the welding seem close to the ball head is a bit shorter on my frame. I am still in doubt with the Stem .. it is a bit big .. i wonder if i should find my seld a shorter one . your frame looks great too ..

    Mine has a crack in the chainstay and i repaired that but i will order a new one , just looking for them and i hope i can still order them ....

    Thanks! Mine is a "L".
    Did you weld the crack yourself?
    Which a lot of my info is "here say" but also was told that the 06's were the last year to have "life time" frame replacement regardless if original owner or not.?

    Naa h i did not weld it .. i made braces with 2 mm alu 6100. i used UHU Fest . an epoxy glue that kan pull 300kg on a square Centimeter. The Chainstay is now stronger that ever but i could a brand new one and i put the new one on .. keep the repaired one for spare ..
    Bike is almost done .. i also replaced the stem .. now i have a shorter one , still have to swap the steering tube into a longer one. brakes are on and working fine , just like the chain and cranck etc etc .. man this bike becomes a beauty.
