    Why dont you contact the Speci Online Support? Perhaps they can identify the frame via the serial number.

    Even in 2002, the frames had a disc-mount.
    So if it even is a specialized, it is old and certainly not M5.
    I hope you didn't pay much for it.

    looks very similar to a pre 2000 M2 frame as the reinforcing where the head-tube joins to the frame is very similar

    not kosher

    seat tube length.
    chainstay thickness.
    welds/gussets.
    down tube.
    etc.

    stickers are right though.

    It could be a 2000 or earlier M2 Stumpjumper, but it is not S-Works. It is very unlikely an S-Works would have rack mounting bolts on the seat-stays.

    I highly doubt that's even a Specialized. I think it's a knock-off. No way would an S-Works have rack mounts.

    It's a Wal-mart bike.

    You're crazy talking.

    Smile It's a Specialized

    It is probably a 2004 Specialized Hardrock (Comp) XC with rack mounts... Yes, it has them too. In addition, in 2004 disc brake mounts were not a standard yet. Anyway, Just look a the gussets and the rear wheel dropouts. It is a Specialized however, I am uncertain of the country of origin due to the position of the top tube cable stops and head tube flanges. Perhaps, the flanges are simply due to the frame size. I have seen them soldiered to the bottom side of the top tube whereas, yours are on the top left side.


    I am pretty sure that this will help you.

    All the best,

    Ignore the Sworks and M5 wordings

    Not sure if this picture of my top-tube near the stem helps.
    Also, please ignore the Sworks / M5 as they are decals on a repainted bike.

    Oh, i was told its a year 200 model too.
    Need to know more as i'm trying to find a adaptor for my rear to convert it to disc

    New question here. I said that your bike is probably a Hardrock.

    Go get an expert opinion. I believe very strongly that I am without fail correct in regards to my primary assessment. P.S. I own a Hardrock XC from that year. Go look at the Specialized archives from 2004 for the Hardrock XC, noting that there are different frames for the various model classes... Hardrock XC labeled as Hardrock XC Comp... Fullstop. In addition, why not do your own home work next time?
