    Absolutely that things a time capsule. Did you at least have to wash and wax? I would say it's worthy of it's own Thread.

    Seriously, that must have taken years of painstaking sourcing of near NOS parts. Was it a full restoration, or did you get a time machine?

    It's functionally fine, it is a tad slow on return to fully off but does not hang or rub the rim. OK on the rear, probably would make a change if it was on the front.

    Thanks Fred, had similar issues. Bike looks great btw.

    I've got a 93 Stumpy arriving in the next hour by courier. Mostly non original, but will be nice to upgrade and hit the trails on.

    Your question has moved me to resolve the issue. I took a stepped ferrule and filed the step down to fit the frame tubing guide. All is good now. I had just stripped the cable back to fit before in my anxiousness to finish the build, this works much better. . Most bike shops should have a stepped ferrule .

    hi all...

    here's my weekend garage sale find:




    the old guy i got this bike from had quite an interesting & heartwrenching story about it & as a speshy fanboy since my mid-90's purple rockhopper, thru an m2 & m4 stumpy up to my present day several year old epic...even tho i was not convinced about its legitimacy - for the tiny purchase price, how could i not go for it? best part is that when i "test rode" it, damn thing worked purdy damn good.

    shows how much i knew

    after a days research... looks to me that outside of a few bits of bastardization, apparently this bike is pretty dam real, & not more than 4-5 years from the beginning?

    was gonna start a new thread asking for help figuring out what to do with it in the general c&v forum but last time i visited here that didn't work out so well so i am hoping specy guys will be more...helpful?

    i can't decide what to do with my new baby? is it worth trying to get it back close to original as a "collectible"? or i could just clean it up a bit for a grocery getter, neighborhood cruiser, critical mass slow-rider? fenders & racks commuter? or semi-off-road tourer? or would i be committing a bike crime to singlespeed it?

    If'n you want a SS, buy a frame and go from there. IMO, it seems a bit ass backwards to take that bike and turn it into a cruiser that it already is. Me? Tune it up and get rid of those godawful bar ends.

    Agreed with the earlier poster, dump the bar ends! Great looking bike, just like my '86 Sport. Though this one may be an '85?

    Leave it fully geared, and ride it off-road or as a town bike. Making it into SS is a waste, IMO. Last, I am very envious, would love to havce this one!

    awww...Silver King & unicrown junkie, you don't like the barends ?

    yeah, me neither. when i get to work on this thing taking those off will be job 1. right now all i've done since i got it home is spray some pb blaster to work on loosening up the stuck seatpost & pedals. besides the stuck seatpost, seat, & grips, best as i can tell this bike is pretty original, so i am leaning to try keeping it that way when i do get time to spend with it.

    i was going along with MOMBAT's spec sheet that shows orange is an '86 color too, but while researching i've run into a few intrwebz posts & pics where guys claimed their orange sports were 1985. both years have about the same parts list & the color for '85 is not noted by MOMBAT, so who knows? until i can figure out how to use the serial # for dating, i won't worry too much about it.

    but since you do have a similar bike, unicrown junkie, maybe you can help me with something?

    the handlebar is very wide & flat with some sweep, & is marked specialized on the "shim"...do you think it is oe?

    thanx for any help...

    1985 Stumpy's were still using a semi sloping fork crown. The Unicrown fork started with the 1986 model year; same style as the pink Team Stumpy.

    The bars may be OEM; does it list a model # on the shim, like "X1+2" or similar?

    Don't bastardize it to make a SS... keep it as is, and make a grocery getter out of it.

    I beg to differ. Stumpys went to the unicrown fork on the 1985 model. I have one. Prior to that it was the biplane fork.

    85 was the year they changed the geometry and used the new fork. It's really not a big deal though.

    Got myself an 88 rockhopper comp a week or so ago, pretty original too, new grips and tyres added as the old ones were shot.

    no chainslap at all so i have added some carbon fablon to prevent any chips and popped a nice turbo saddle on top

    this will be my new works/pub bike since its such a comfy ride.

    enjoy





    Wanted -girvin cranks, tubular steel - not the standard alloy ones

    above is a pic of the "shim". fwiw...when i changed the grips - the bar was marked x3 on one end along with some marks i couldn't decipher.

    at the moment, i am over the bars. would very much like to know if they are oem but will live with them for the time being. now i am very curious about the seatpost...

    however, before going on & on & on looking for info & suggestions about my stumpy - i guess i should ask whether this 'post your specy pic' thread is the right place for me to to be looking for info/help for it?

    thanx in advance for your...uh...input?

    Picture threads are more "show off your babies" threads. It would be great if you start a new thread and keep everything contained within it.

    Deja Tu tandem

    This is our tandem. Official Specialized Picture Thread-0511131027.jpg

    We've owned it since 1997, but it's of a slightly older vintage than that, I think. I've written a bit about it on my blog: RockyChrysler.com: Just about a bike [Specialized Deja Tu tandem]

    Just brought home a 1991 Stumpy Comp. Starting off wrenching by wanting to raise up the seat so I could mount it on the stand. Loosen the clamp, start to wiggle the seat side to side.....good, it wiggles free. NOT!!

    Seatpost had a crack running it down it, and the seat was spinning within the post. I pull the seat out and see that someone had jerry rigged the seat clamp by grinding it down and shoving it into the post. uhhohh.

    That post is welded in there right now....a serious case of the frozen post.

    boooooo

    1992 Rockhopper Sport. CL purchase, bigtime nostalgia for me as my first real bike was a '92 hopper in seafoam/teal green with purple script. Loved that bike and ripped up some Indiana trails with it. This one came to me in great shape with most of a suntour x1 group. I bought a CL donor bike with a partial Deore DX group ('89, '90 date codes) and built it up, rebuilt the wheels on the DX hubs, front radial . Fenders and bars are Soma. Rides dreamy.

    Finally got around to "XC-Pro-ing" my Epic (carbon tubes, steel lugs). Still have to repla ce headset with GG Suntour XC Pro and put a proper front brake cable hanger but pretty much "there".

    Threw some too good to be ridden XTR parts on the FSR yesterday for some pictures. Normally this bike has some hard working, trail experienced XT parts.

    blilrat,

    Awesome looking Stumpy FSR! After selling the MB-1 to my niece, I 're-inherited' my old Stumpy FSR back from her, and I'm wondering what I should do with it... perhaps as a spare for the S-Works? Also playing with the possibility of retrofitting a more modern shock to the rear end, if I can get the spacing worked out.

    83 Stumpjumper Sport.

    This bike is all original except for the tires!! I would have never guessed that I would like a bike this much but the geometry and the Bi-plane fork just make for an amazing ride!! Like Buttah

    So, I'm rebuilding a Rockhopper for a buddy....pretty gunked up and filthy, but seems to be intact except the front Rockshox doesn't move at all...
    Not sure of the year, it's a Rockhopper FS on the downstays it says A1 Comp - it's a silver color
    Is there way to tell by the serial number? M5GI59830

    Alrighty - just got this one rideable for the weekend (see my "Two Stumpjumpers for one low price" thread):

    Before:


    Paint is totally beat-up and rusty and the components have a lot of umm, "patina" but function well (love this old XT stuff). The old XT brake pads are cool (and hardly worn) but I ordered a set of Kool Stops.

    This bike supposedly came with a 12-28 rear cassette, but I received it with a 14-32 (shown). I replaced the chain and pulled the stock XT BB and replaced it with a newer UN-55.

    First Ride:


    That paint is SO cool. How I wish the previous (and original) owner had shown a little sympathy for the bike and not left it outside so much. Argh. Anyway, looking forward to riding this thing - I love how elegant and yet aggressive these things look.

    After:

    Wow, is it sacrilege to say that I like this bike more than my old Fat Chance Wicked? Because I think I might. It's certainly not a lesser rig. Responsive. Steers well, and dayumn smooth.

    I put 80 minutes on it tonight. $150 well spent.

    Great bike. I don't think the paint is that bad. I just picked up an old Rockhopper Comp which is way, way worse.

    ... Obviously something here is non-period correct. And I will pull the other boot off when I get around to changing the brake cable. The current one worked fine, so I left it alone.
    Actually, at one time Deore XT SLR brake levers came with rubber hoods!

    Only for a couple years, though...

    No, the bike came with both hoods (on the BL-M733 levers), but they don't seem to stay on very well, and I think they look clunky. I just pulled the front one off when I ran a new brake cable.

    Since we are in a 91 Stumpjumper Comp lovin' mode, I thought I'd contribute! Acquired a few years ago as a family cruising around the neighborhood towing a trailer steed and slowly getting her back to spec. The frame is at about a 7+ and the original XT components were at a 8/9 out of 10. Added a newish Turbo saddle, XT seatpost and new cables/housing throughout and she has cleaned up quite nicely to say the least. Only issue is it came with the Anti Gravity front shock, which works OK but not ideal. I would love to replace it with an original direct drive OG fork... Someday, I will find one (hint, hint)

    Found a period-correct handlebar at the local mom-n-pop tandem bike shop on Friday night that I might be able to live with...and something I always wanted back in the day (settled for a knock-off Zoom Brahma bar back then).



    We'll see how long it lasts under 165lbs of fury........snap.

    How long of steer tube, & necessary thread length do you need? There is a " DD " fork at the local, co-op . I think they want $5-10.00.

    Size large frame. Will need approx 6 inches of steer tube with around 3/4 - 1 inch of threads.
    10.00 bucks is cheap!

    1986 was the year they started using U-brakes, at least on the Stumpy Sport model. Mine has 'em.

    In 1987 all models with the exception of the StreetStomper and maybe the HR had U-brakes, same goes for '88.

    are you the guy who also has an orange stumpy sport?

    is it possible that they changed during the year? my orange sport has a rear canti. as much as i would like it to be an '85 (after all, a year older, right?), i just checked the mombat speshy specs page & now its got me convinced that mine is an '86. not to mention, if i am reading it right, the chart does not show any u-brake on anything previous to '87?

    there's a guy not too far from me selling a white sj comp, all xt, with a rear u-brake. i was trying to figure out what year & if i could be...errr...addicted(?) enough to buy it.

    Pictures would be quite helpful.. Otherwise, most of the catalogs are online. Look in the mid 90's.

    No, I think you are thinking of Stumpy83, if that is the right handle name I have.

    May be possible, I am not sure. Just know that my black 86 Sport has U's underneath it.

    As for the white SJ Comp, that would be an 88. I had one, and it's only bike I ever let get stolen. Ride great but a tad slower handling than the Team version. I also had an 89 SJ Comp, but it was all canti's.

    If you don't want the 88 Comp, how much does he want cuz I may be interested too.

    thank god i've come to my senses & am continuing on simplifying my life so am passing on this bike.

    unfortunately, where i live anybody who has a bike over a few yrs old thinks it is a rarity. this guy's bike is in nice shape, but he is pretty firm about wanting $250 for it...

    unicrown junkie - what do you think?

    Holy Cow! That thing looks pretty good after 25 years. Even looks to have original bar/stem combo which we all took off and put a IRD on instead.

    New to me 89 stumpjumper

    So I needed a bike that I could tweak out for riding with my kid in the yepp seat. When I installed the seat on my independent fabrication deluxe, which is set up for cross country, I realized I couldn't really ride because my kids head hit my chest. So obviously I needed a new bike. There is a cool recycle bike place in salt lake so I went in there and found this perfect sad looking 89 stumpjumper team. $150 later it's mine. It is full XT, 7spd,thumbshifters, pedals, hubs, derailleurs, everything original XT. Sweet. I also snagged a sweet set of swept riser bars, perfect to get my body position upright to keep the kiddos head in the clear. All it really needed was a tune up. Couple of lengthened cables, true the wheels, adjust the brakes, and good to go. Looking forward to tearing up the gravel paths in sun valley with the kid this weekend. Here it is...

    Been working on this. Bought it from a girl who didn't use it much at all. Seemed all good until I realized the seat post was frozen. The paint get pretty beat up from trying to get that bad boy out. Well, I finally did....I am liking the bike.

    1988 Stumpjumper Comp

    Oh man! Stalking Craigslist paid off today. I just bought this Stumpy from an older gentleman that was the original owner. He kept it in his garage and probably rode it about a dozen times and never off road. It's in great condition. The wheels look like he never even pulled back on the brake levers. All XT components, thumb shifters and hardly a scratch on the paint. I'll detail this bugger and keep it exactly as it is. This one makes me happy!

    Here's my 91/92/93? Hardrock...recently awoke from hibernation. I've had this bike since new, though it has sat in storage from the last 15 years. Looks pretty good for a bike over 20 years old and still rides great!

    1990(?) Stumpjumper I got from CL a week ago. Replaced the tires, saddle, pedals and grips. Frame is scratched up but other than that, bike is still good.

    Using it mostly as a road bike and on light trails. Lovin' how the steel frame feels.
