    1990 Stumpjumper

    Official Specialized Picture Thread-img_0010.jpg

    My 1990 Stumpjumper. Love the way this bike handles. I added XTR V brakes, titanium seat post, Mavic 221 rear wheel with 9 speed cassette and XTR rear derailleur. Still have all of the original parts. I also have a 1988 Stumpjumper Comp that I am keeping all original.

    I bought a Stumpjumper Comp off Craigslist a couple weeks back. The seller claimed it as a 1989 but I can't find the exact model in catalogs. Unfortunately I scraped off the decals, which were already in poor shape. They were total Miami Vice style and ugly as all get-out in a bad way.

    The paint job is a white pearlescent and it's fully equipped with XT components.

    Anyone know what year it could be, or how I can tell? I understand the serial numbers on Specialized don't reveal much.

    Most likely an 89. If it has all cantilvers then your good to go. I had one and loved it, wish I hadn't sold it to Internal14 years ago!

    Good friction shifting is getting hard to find nowadays....

    If it has rear XT U brakes down beneath the chain stays then it is most likely an 1988. They only had the U brakes in 87 and 88. If there are XT cantis up on the seat stays then it's probably 89. I have a pearl white 88 comp, ride it all the time and love that bike. Nice score.

    1988 Stumpjumper Comp

    Official Specialized Picture Thread-photo-2.jpg
    My 1988 Stumpjumper Comp. I was in my early 20's in 1988 and couldn't afford a bike like this back then. I recently found this on Craigslist; pristine, almost never ridden, always garaged and beautiful. It's like a time machine. I couldn't pull the 75 bucks out of my pocket fast enough. Instant sentimental value as soon as I saw it. Perfect size and everything. I'll keep this one for the duration.

    That's the bike I have! I recognize the stickers. You're saying it's an '88 but people above (and other research I've done) indicates that U-brakes came on the '88 models.

    The rear U brakes are right down there under the chain stays. They all came with cantis up front. Other than the fact that the rear U brakes are prone to get clogged with mud, they are great brakes with awesome stopping power.

    Interesting. I wonder why? Volume of manufacturing? ROI? Cannondale isn't surprising since aluminum was their thing, but Specialized and Trek experimented with lots of materials...

    1984 Stumpjumper - Original Owner

    I got my 1984 Stumpjumper back on the road. I am the original owner and I bought this bike in Huntington Beach, CA at Two Wheeled Transit Authority. Bombed down a lot of hills out in Orange County.

Bombed down a lot of hills out in Orange County. The only major mod I did to the bike is putting Biopace chainrings on her. These days, the bike fairs better than I do on the trails!

    1993 S-Works M2

    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 don't think I've post this bike here.

    Post race picture after a hard day's work of placing first on a rain soaked trail. My prize was a set of 29'r tires - - apparently no one wins races on 26'rs anymore.

    XCIIs and Five Tens. My favorite combo. Even ran XCIIs on my modernish Motolite.

    Vintage frame w/ modern components

    Brought it back from the dead. Bought this almost 20 years ago, and it is just as much fun as it was back then. Maybe more.

    Newbie here, I apologize now for this stupid question. I did search before I asked this,lol.

    Old Rockhopper 88-92 from what my research has turned up, but I have no idea how to upload a pic?

    Was also wanting a little help identifying the year.

    Ok, think I figured this out

    My old Rockhopper, can't remember what year I bought this, but I did narrow it down with some research. Looks Like 1990? Bought it new, but middle age, and CRS disease has limited my memory to about 3 yrs.

    Bought new, and just started riding again after 20 yrs of retirement. How did I ever walk away from such a sport. Raced some as an amateur back in the late 80's and early 90's. Built a few bikes on my own, then ran out and bought this baby from the lbs. Loved it, and I think since pulling it out of retirement I love it more!

    A big thanx to my pop for hanging on to it while I tried to figure out my life. Still working on that, but I do remember I loved riding and glad to be back!!
    Hope I got the upload correct.

    Just picked this one up today. Found it on my local craigslist and couldn't pass it up for the price. I'll be upgrading it a bit - mainly putting on a new saddle, handlebars, and some new gearing down the road (the original are not awful, but need to be replaced soon enough).

    I think it's a 95' model. Anyone know for sure?

    Took it out for a 7.5 mile cruise tonight and had a pretty numb butt and slightly sore hands, but I'll fix that with some tweaks here and there. Otherwise, it rides like a dream!
