    Cool! I have that bike's older brother in my garage right now (90 Stumpjumper Epic).

    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!

    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.

    Specialized never built a full titanium bike. Neither Trek or Cannondale... Raleigh did and mostb of the medium/ small guys like Kona did. Even Raleigh..

    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 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.

    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!

    Hey everyone, I'm sorry if this question has been answered somewhere already - I sorted through all 17 pages and didn't see it asked.

    I'd like to swap the handlebars on the bike I posted pics of above and at the same time I'd like to put on a new stem for better fit on the handlebar angle/height. Is that all I'm going to need is a 1" threaded to 1 1/8" threadless adapter and a new stem? Is there a better way I should consider?

    Also, this bike has the grip shifters on it, so if/when I upgrade the gearing, I'd like to move to your basic trigger shifter setup as well. When I do, what am I going to need to replace and what of the existing components will I be able to use if condition is good? It's a 7 speed, so I'm assuming i can find trigger shifters for a 7 speed?

    Thanks guys!

    hope you all don't mind another question here but i really don't like starting new threads & gotta think it's more likely will get the right answer

    the time has come to rebuild or replace the bottom bracket on my '86 stumpjumper sport. still deliberating which way to go - but for now it is still in place with crankarms on, thus i can't measure accurately...

    can anybody tell me what is the correct bb spindle length i need for this bike?

    thanx for any help...

    It depends on the crank, not the bike. What crankset are you running?
    Blindly guessing, but a 127.5mm spindle would be a good starting point.

    what he says....^^.......not sure what "type" bottom bracket on that stumper?, probably cup&cone or early cartridge type? you will need a tool most likely, and yes the length of the BB is determined by the crank, if you can tell what brand/model yor crankset is then here is a good chart to tell what length you need:

    yeah, you're right...

    should have mentioned that it has the oem flag crankset

    which according to mombat is "Specialized Touring 26/36/46" & original bb too. i haven't quite decided whether to rebuild with new bearings & spindle, or just replace with modern sealed.

    edit: after a little more research...does 118mm sound plausible?

    Here's the latest version of my 95 HardRock. I've added new handlebars and a stem adapter to swap things out easier than the quill stem allowed for. I also added a new seat (the original was shot) and it's riding pretty comfortably now.

    I bought the Hardrock and made it a bit more fun Surly 17t cog and 34t chainring, a set of Shimano Deore DX cranks, and some Trialtech magnesium pedals I had laying around. I still need to get a seat for it but all of my spares are 2000 miles away. Official Specialized Picture Thread-img_1735-copy.jpg

    I picked this 1992 Specialized Stumpjumper (14") up several years ago for my wife (then girlfriend) and converted it to a city cruiser where it got quite a bit of use. This bike really hadn't been ridden at all before I bought it as was evident by the condition of the Specialized BX23 rims and drivetrain, which had no wear on them whatsoever. It was most likely ridden a few times then placed in the back of the garage where other unused items were piled on top of it. Since I gave my wife a custom Sweetpea a couple years back, this bike hasn't seen any action. I decided to build it back up as a mountain bike in the hopes my wife might take an interest. I'm also going to loan it out to my friends and their kids. It's got most of the original parts but I upgraded a few things. My wife wanted Grip Shift (when it was a city cruiser) so I swapped that out and kept the original thumb shifters. The wheels are hand built by my LBS and were on my 1992 Yo Eddy for a spell. Saddle, date stamped 1994, came with another bike I bought recently so I slapped it on also. A new seat post was in order just because it looks nice. Had a nice Ritchey Force stem in my parts bin that I thought would look nice so I put that on too. The pedals are new SPD though I have the original pedals with toe clips. All new cables and tubes/tires so it's ready for the next 22 years.

    I picked up one almost exactly like that. Except it has 7 speed thumb shifters.

    Very few miles on this one when I got it off Craigslist for $40. Did a drop bar conversion and robbed the parts bin for some nice bits to complete. Took a few rides and two quill stem adapters to get this one dialed in just right.



    Now conquering fireroads until I get familiar enough with it to take a drop or two.

    Nice purpley Stumpjumper, brings back memories.

    Off topic, hopefully helpful...I see your brakes there. Mr. Nosy is poking into your business...you can get more powerful braking if you adjust those a little. Slide your straddle hanger down 1/2", then move the brake pads inboard from the arms outward about 1/8-1/4" each. Try to make the angle of the straddle cable closer to 90 degrees away from the line down the center of the brake arms, that is, from brake pivot bolt to straddle cable end.



    A bit more in this direction will do it. Your high straddle cable is tugging the brake arms up as much as in. These brakes below have the straddle pulling closer to the right direction. (I'd put it lower - Grafton had it right.):

    My 1995 Rockhopper Comp A1 FS. My dad had it since new, but hasn't been ridden for years. A friend is putting it together as a 1x7 for me. Need to decide what to do with the fork. New elastomers, spring upgrade, rigid, or look for a period upgrade like a mag 21 or judy that will probably need rebuilt anyway. Plan on riding it on some moderate single track. Will probably look for other period correct upgrades as time goes by.

    My friend wanted me work on his late 90's something Hardrock or Rockhoper. So I threw on some spare parts I had laying around. Rides and looks much better.

    old Rockhopper

    I pulled my old Rockhopper out of storage to ride around neighborhood with gf that has a new bike. I bought this bike new back in the mid '80s, but I dont remember exactly what year it is.
    Some ass**** broke into my storage unit and stole the front wheel off the bike. I guess it was too much trouble for him to pull bike out of unit. I was able to find some decent oem hubs to have laced up with matching rims next week.
    Bike is in relatively good condition, needs cleaning, some polishing, and a few minor nicks touch-up'd with some paint.

    CS2 said my bike is a Stumpjumper from '85 or '86 and he is probably right. I don't know the history of Specialized lines of bikes. I will take it by the old shop where I bought back in the mid '80s and see if the owner remembers it.

    It does have a Specialized alloy bar and the seat post is a Japan Strong piece.

    First mtb

    I have been riding a road bike for a little over a year (3000 miles) and have really enjoyed it. The road bike has it's limit. I decided I needed a "do all" fun bike. I found this bike on CL, did some research, fell in love and had to have it. Pretty sure it is a 1988 Rockhopper Com. The first ride (as bought) was through my neighborhood on hilly streets. The biopace crank has a definite different feel, especially at a high cadence. After about 8 miles a crank bolt came loose and locked the pedal. Took it to my LBM to straighten my crank, got it tuned, and new tires. Put on a pair of kenda kross tires for the "do all". Can hardly wait to take her out again.

    Rockhopper..what year????

    I just received a Specialized Rockhopper..looks like an older bike..been searching and it seams to be a 95. The bike has a Taiwan label on the front lower stem...was this a low end model. The bike is outfitted with a Direct Drive light double butted frame stickers, a double butted cromo front fork sticker also. Any info would be great..I am thinking about fixing this up...

    Cool bike! Looks like it would like to have a little fresh grease though. Even my 1985 Rockhopper has a Made In Taiwan sticker on it. Funny, my '85 has almost exactly the same component group on it as my wifes '84 Stumpjumper. Her Stumpjumper says made in Japan though. Traditionally it was the Stumpjumper, then the Rockhopper, then the Hardrock. So the Rockhopper would have been mid level, but there may have been different component levels for each.

    So I can place it from the 80's era I guess...I will take apart and inspect all of the bearings and grease them up...Oh...one more thing..I got it from a lady..she told me it was a women's bike..which I did not agree with her...was I right...??

    Ya, I don't think its a woman's specific bike. I think your original guess of mid 90's (roughly) is more accurate time wise. Actually looking again, if it only has a six speed freewheel/cassette maybe it is more like early 90's. Maybe somebody else knows better though.

    My 1990 Rockhopper Comp which I purchased new for $625. Originally rigid, I added the Judy XC with air cartridges in 94. I must've put about 10,000 miles on that bike using it first as my main ride for 8 years, then as a NYC commuter with fat slicks for another 3 years. It became my first Singlespeed in 2010 after sitting in the basement for about 9 years and then I sold it to fund a 29er SS. Still miss that bike! Big Ass 22" frame.

    My Old '85 Rockhopper

    My old bike is back on the road again. I went through the fork, replaced spindle in bottom bracket, disassembled and cleaned the brakes, shifters, and then cleaned up the derailleurs. I had hubs laced up with new rims from Alex Rims and I installed a NOS Shimano freewheel.
    Bike rides very smoothly and is very quiet w/o any squeaks or rattles.

    I picked up a new commuter project yesterday and immediately started it's transformation. The tires were shot, as were the rim brakes. Gearing was slipping a little too. But the frame was in nice shape and the price was right. I need to get a quill stem adapter and stem, then a new set of brakes. Then I'll be swapping the crank and finishing my single speed build.

    Here's how she sits at the moment:

    Saw this this in the back of the shop the other day and instantly knew it was your from the seat. I cant wait to see it all built up. I have to say, I am jealous of the purple. The silver one you sold me is just not as cool. It looked like the 2.4 on the back just barley cleared the chainstays. The 2.2's on mine are great but I would like a bit more cushion. Not sure about the mud clearance though Official Specialized Picture Thread-img_2138.jpgOfficial Specialized Picture Thread-img_2480.jpg

    Your SS build was actually inspiration for this one! haha - I'll send pics when this one is done. I had to order some v-brakes, but it should be ready to roll mid-week. And yeah, the 2.4's were tight for sure. I actually wasn't sure they'd even fit in the back, and mud may pose a problem. We'll cross that bridge when we get there though.

    Nice thread
    I raced a Stumpjumper FS in '93, and then a Stumpjumper in '94, both great bikes to ride. I'm keen to track one of each down for restoration so I scan the classifieds on a regular basis. Who knows, perhaps I'll be able to post some pics up in due course

    Early Stumpjumper??

    Official Specialized Picture Thread-stumpjumper-1-.jpg Trying to figure out what vintage this is. I bought it at a police auction in the mid eighties, the serial number was ground off. I did some part swapping like the bars, cranks, shifters and derailers but kept some of the pieces. I pulled it out of the shed the other day and put on a new derailler and it rides almost like new (the brakes squeak . The old TA crank has the weirdest set up for a triple chain ring that I never noticed before as I liked the look of the Sugino AT back then. Anyone have any ideas on what year it is or something that could point me in the right direction? I left a message at Specialized but am not holding my breath. Thanks for looking.

    My Stumpjumper, just got it rolling recently. Love it so much more then I expected. Don't know much about it, was thinking 1984, but not sure. Curious about how much of it is original, like the Deore XT shifters and Deore DX rear der.

    This thing is so fun!
    and cant believe how well these old thumb shifters/group works, was going to upgrade to newer 9 speed with barends/paul thumbies, but i think i'm just going to leave it as is.
    Don't know much about it, was guessing that its a '84, but not really sure. Wondering how much of it is original, like bars, Deore XT shifter, XT front der, and Deore DX rear.

    Just picked this up off Craigslist. Swapped the mismatched wheelset for some Arayas that already had 26x1.5 tires on em. Not sure what direction to take the bike after I get it all cleaned up.

    '86 Rockhopper

    Below is my '86 Rockhopper. Picked it up about 6 months back on CL for $100. It was pretty clean and mostly original. Looked to be hardly ridden; original tires had basically no visible wear and paint is almost pristine.

    A few things needed replacing right from the get go... non-original cheapy saddle got tossed, foam handlebar grips were rotting, brake pads were brittle and the beads on the tires were starting to disintegrate.

    Drivetrain was in good shape and mostly original Shimano Deer Head vintage with the exception of one thumbshifter which appears to be a period era Suntour replacement for the original Shimano thumby. The 3x6 gearing is more than enough for any road climbing I encounter with it. Cantis work surprisingly well once I swapped out the pads to new Koolstops and gave them a little adjustment.

    Turned out I didn't much care for the original bars and stem after a couple weeks of riding. I lucked into a used Rivendell Bullmoose Bosco bar which I'm really enjoying on this bike instead. As this bike is doing duty (mostly) as my commuter and errand runner, I threw some SKS fenders on it and moved racks/basket over from another bike. I really enjoy how this bike rides; it might be my current favorite just for overall comfort and fun factor.

    Nice, but you're about ten years off. Looks like a 1990

    Yeah, after blowing it up, it does look like a 93 M2 FS. Similar graphics to the 90 Stumpjumper
