    Need help with an older Stumpjumper

    My wife owns what appears to be a '99 Spec. Stumpjumper FSR XC that I bought new for her. It has been unused for several years.


    I would like to make sure what year it is and to locate a service manual/owner's manual so I can service the fork and shock and other items on the bike. I need to know air, oil, etc., specs.


    It is blue, with a red Manitou fork, the Fox Air Vanilla float shock, Avid brakes, etc. I have attached a photo.


    Any ideas where I can find an owner's manual? Is it a '99 ? Thanks.

    Bad weekend to be asking about Specialized IMO (unless you want to be told to cover it with gas and set it on fire).

    Looks like a 99 or 2K. But, the manual would have been a generic specialized manual that came with either all their bikes, or, all maybe one for all their FS bikes. It most likely had no specific info about servicing that exact shock or fork. Better to find the manual for the shock and the fork independently.

    If there are no other markings on the fork to indicate the specific model of the fork and shock, check out specs for different years on bikepedia to try to narrow down your guesses, then use the factory manuals for those forks to guide you in oil service, etc.

    Fork is probably a Manitou SX, manual here: http://www.spoke-n-word-cycles.com/T...e%20Manual.pdf
    Vanilla shock manual: http://www.birota.ru/manuals/foxflow...hox-manual.pdf

    Seals for those old forks can be hard to come by. Hope that helps.

    RE: Spec coming down on the Canadian store owner.

    Very true. A pretty heavy handed play by the big S.
