    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.

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    Yes, but it's been replaced by this SixFifty Tomah, which is perfect for me.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

    Thatís what I thought but they didnít put it in the only catalog I could find for 89. Although there is a 1989 Stumpjumper that has the identical paint scheme.

    1983 Specialized Stumpjumper Sport XT

    Just brought this one home today and I'm super excited. I think it's an '83 going by the serial numbers M3M and comparing with MOMBAT serials. Though I could be wrong. Either way, happy to have it. I'll remove the reflectors and maybe the plastic cassette guard, but that's about it.

    I just got this in the garage 20 minutes ago. Picked it up from a local CL ad and was shocked it was still available after 21 days being listed in the Twin Cities (HOT market). I *think* it's a 1992 Stumpjumper, not sure if it's a base, comp or whatever but it has full Deore LX brakes and drivetrain and came with all original components, as far as I can tell, other than the saddle, grips, tires and rear hub. I've only been able to find one other picture of a stumpjumper in this pale metallic green color.

    Anyway, it rides so nice I can't believe it! It's the first old steel framed ridged I've ever ridden and it's 19"-20" frame and geo feels perfect. I'm not quite sure what I want to do with it yet but I'm hoping to replace the BB, crank, and cassette to make it a 1x9 (if the rear hub allows me to otherwise a 1x7) and try to fit a set of BR-T780 XT V-Brakes on the bike. New saddle, grips and possibly some nice light HED wheels if I want to go all out. Basically I want to build it almost exactly like I did my 96 m2 comp

    I had the exact same bike! Loved that bike. Got hit by a Car on it. Now have a 93. Ride it 100 miles a week mostly off road trails around Tucson. Considering a new bike but just put some 2.35 tires on made a big difference. I might just keep on riding the old one.

    While the Specialized thread is fresh, here's a fun little project I just finished.

    1990 Stumpjumper Epic.
    Belonged to a 97 year old man (son was selling it), so you can imagine that even when brand new 26 years ago, it wasn't being ridden very hard.
    These are the best kind of bikes to find. Originally sold out of a shop in SF, set up for comfort, covered in a layer of dust/grease, but otherwise all original.
    Strip it down, clean/regrease all the parts. Flush or replace housing, sand/replace pads, new cables, new chain, new grips.
    Just had to source the correct bar and stem, everything else I had laying around. To say this bike is clean is an understatement.

    Yep! Those are fun when you can make a big difference in a short time. The long tailed projects are satisfying too.

    The amount of bike you get for the money, I think so. It's part of the neat thing about vintage mtb. If you're diligent, you can get a lot of bike for well under $500 bucks.

    Definitely. I just picked up a 95% original '89 stumpy and a 75% original '93 stumpy, Tange Prestige tubing, both for about $400. Last year I picked up a '96 stumpy m2 fs comp for a little over $100 with full XT.

    The local market is usually pretty hot too so I feel like I got pretty good deals.

    I just picked one of these up a few weeks ago, not as clean on the paint and the rear ri, brakes and rear der is not stock though. Should I try and replace with stock, or do a period correct upgrades resto. I really want to ride it, and it will need paint or powder coat.

    Just finished a complete rebuild of my 89 Stumpjumper. The only original parts other than the frame & fork are the headset and I think seatpost.

    The Mavic X221 wheelset with LX and Grease Guard hubs were take offs from a early 2000s Specialized Epic right after it was bought. Saddle is a take off from a Rockhopper from the early 2000s, stem and bars of a different vintage stumpy I picked up earlier this year, Shimano LX cranks I had sitting in the parts bin.

    Brand new parts are a full 1x10 Shimano SLX drivetrain (11-36 cassette, Shadow rear derailleur, 10spd rear shift lever), Shimano XT R780 brake levers, Shimano XT T780 brake calipers, Shimano SM70 BB, Blackburn Chicane bottle cage, Shimano Saint pedals and a 32t Race Face NW sprocket up front.

    I did this build very similar to my 96 Stumpjumper FS M2 Comp that was finished this past spring.

    Changes

    That's very cool! What's involved in changing to the 1x10 setup? And do the new brakes work that much better than originals?

    I have the same forks on my 93 Stumpjumper, mine still hold air also,and have never been rebuilt. I guess they don't make them like they use to.

    QUOTE=phattruth;11338119]I picked this up on Saturday. It's incredibly clean and everything works, even the forks hold air. Full XTR with Ringle goodies to boot. I have the original stem and bars, plus the PD-M747 pedals. I just put my spare parts on so I can ride it. It's a 21.5" and I'm only 6'.

    The XT T780 v brakes are 10x better than any cantilever brake I've used. They're all I use for rim brakes.

    Going from a 7 speed rear to 9/10 can be tricky but as long as the rear dropouts are wide enough it's not usually a problem. I thought I was going to have to bend the frame wider in the rear to fit the 9/10 speed wheel but it fit just fine. If you need to widen or "cold set" a steel frame to fit a modern wheel watch this video https://youtu.be/YdibmxBuMy0 ,he has some great info on bike rebuilds. Otherwise it's really simple, I bought a set of wheels with a 9/10/11 freehub, bought the correct BB, crank and cassette then just choose your shift package (I usually use XT but always hear people say SLX is just as good for 75% of the price so I decided to try it).

    This is the 3rd vintage Stumpjumper I've modernized with a 1x10 setup. The vintage purists hate it but I'm not really a collector and I love the 1x drivetrain (or maybe I just hate front derailuers lol) and v brakes are so much better than the cantis I've tried.

    Disks

    I was going to post a question, but I see you have added disk brakes to a vintage bike. What is involved to make the switch. Thanks in advance.

    I ended up parting out the XTR and Ringle bits and rebuilding the rest for a friend of mine who's a bit taller. It's still going strong and gets ridden almost every week.

    QUOTE=phattruth;11338119]I picked this up on Saturday. It's incredibly clean and everything works, even the forks hold air. Full XTR with Ringle goodies to boot. I have the original stem and bars, plus the PD-M747 pedals. I just put my spare parts on so I can ride it. It's a 21.5" and I'm only 6'.

    I posted this on the What's it worth forum, but I think it should be here too.

    I ride with my seat about the same height because of knee replacement on my left leg and my knee not bending like it's supposed to. I would prefer the seat lower but it won't work for me. But at least I'm still riding.
