I went 2x9, it runs like a dream. The pedals are the oldest item on the bike, 1st gen XC1 bear traps. Well tell me what you think.

    Yeah, I guess it's a valiant attempt at making a some sort of functional machine out of misc parts, but I think most here would say that it's just wrong. Swap out that frame and let someone give it a proper home. Do you still have the fork and stem?

    I'm curious to know what rear brake you used. Dia-Compe like something BMX?

    What differentiates a Padgett fork from a standard Ritchey fork?
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Padgett fork had more clearance between the tire and the fork crown. It was what we sent Specialized in 1981 when they ordered four bikes. The first Stumpjumper reproduced the Padgett fork with a crown casting that resembled a bi-plane even though as a casting it didn't have to. According to Tom this resulted in an extra half-degree of head tube angle. Look at a 1981 Stumpy and compare to a Ritchey fork.

    Actually the earliest Stumpjumpers (Oct. of 81) don`t have the biplane style fork. They have a socket fork. Supposedly they weren`t ready yet and they wanted the bikes on the market. The 82`s have the biplane...
    Wanted: Ritchey built Frame/Fork 85 or earlier.

    I saw an 81/82 Stumpy the other day. No camera.
    Here is a 81 Ritchey Biplane for comparisson for when someone comes up with the padgett.

    Top is from an 83, bottom is from an 81. Sorry no Padgett here:


    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....

    I'm looking for a shot with a front wheel to show the difference in tire clearance.

    On a Ritchey you can just about get a finger in there. On a Padgett fork you could put three between the tire and the fork crown.

    Realistically there can't be more than a handful of Padgett forks. They were made to be used on a production run of 100 frames Tom did for John Finley Scott, but most of those bikes were never finished and became part of Scott's estate. Because these forks made the bikes look different, we unloaded them whenever we had to give someone a deal. Four of them went to Specialized in 1981, and the initial Stumpjumper geometry reproduced the Padgett fork rather than the Ritchey.

    I suspect that Padgett, using the same Reynolds Old Continental Oval fork blades that Tom used, didn't bother to trim them from the road wheel length.

    Judging by the shifters that's an August 1983 or later bike with a Deerhead kit on it, including brakes (but not levers, obviously).

    A handful of '81s have a chrome biplane fork. Whether this is original or replacement due to the socket fork breaking is up in the air.

    Anomie is correct, Deerhead was still a few years out in 1980. I am just assuming he took the good bits off and put them on an early Ritchey and then put the Stumpy back together with what was in the parts bin.
