    It's been a while (busy trying to get stronger with my 29er single speed), but I got to ride it this past weekend.

    Just as fun as ever.

    Official Specialized Picture Thread

    Just picked this fresh Miami vice Stumpjumper up. Previous owner says it's an 1988.

    I bought this 1996 Stumpjumper M2FS Comp new and gave it to my son a couple of years ago. He has put over 1,000 miles riding it on Mt Tam since he's owned it.

    The problem isn't the location of the seat, but how far back the post is. Just because I have long legs doesn't mean I need my ass lined up with the rear axle. The bike has been sold for something with a better post angle.

    I swear I'm gonna have to start lowering the seats 3" for pictures.

    Everyone is different. I've ridden a number of '82-'86 vintage Stumpjumpers and never had any issues dialing them in. Did you still have enough post left in the frame?

    Yes, but it's been replaced by this SixFifty Tomah, which is perfect for me.

    I think it's a 1991 or '92 - and he may even get it as a gift - his uncle has money.

    I know that sounds crazy - but he is a real level headed kid - straight A's too. He loves to power his bike up the hills, but he takes it pretty easy on the way down - he's not a speed freak like I was. I wouldn't let him get it if I didn't feel he wouldn't be safe in it - and it's only got a 350 in it.

    1989 Team

    Official Specialized Picture Thread-img_5747.jpg 1989 Stumpjumper Team. (according to specs I just looked up) Wish I would have taken pic before I traded out bars. Now she's a comfort cruiser.

    Official Specialized Picture Thread-8079679432_959279f30a_b.jpg nabbed this pic of a '88 from doctor-bond 's post on 10-12-2012. Matching paint. Mine has the biopace gears, not the browning.

    Just picked up this old Rockhopper on CL. I watch it sit there for almost a month before biting. Ended up talking his down 1/3rd of his asking price and got it for a steal at $20! Lol. In reality I just love the color and paint job. But it will be a fun bike to ride around the neighborhood and hit the local park trails with the GF. Toughest part so far is finding a front derailleur with a clamp small enough to fit...

    I have that same bike in that color scheme. It rides surprising well. It's a 1992.
    I have a 1-1/8 FD that may work. I just have to check the pull direction.

    that will work, but if it's a 28.6 he should be able to locate one on the bay, is it top or bottom pull[most likely bottom?] my older hardrock is a bottom pull , and then decide on to match current gruppo or?

    I matter of factly do have a 31.8 FD Shimano LX with bottom pull I took off my 1995 Proflex 855 Im parting out and selling. I might give that a try until I find one on the List of Craig. Any good ideas for a shim to ghetto rig the larger clamp size temporarily? Also thank you Super_Stein! Im glad to hear it rides well, I cant wait to get it out on the local trails!

    You can buy premade shims but you can make one out of aluminum cans or plastic bottles that you probably have around the house.
