    1991 Stumpjumper Comp Rigid Fork

    Newbie here. I came across a decent 1992 Stumpjumper Comp. It has a seized Answer Manitou Easton fork. Iíd like to swap it out for a rigid fork. Any tips on what to look for or what will work? I am an older guy and wonít be charging hard. Just some light trail riding. I started the usual Ebay, CL search but canít find any Specialized Stumpjumper forks.

    The manitou 1 really suits it. Are you sure it is totally trashed now and can't be rebuilt? The original elastomers would be overdue for a replacement by now. It is one of the simplest mtb fork designs ever.

    suspensionforkparts.net might be able to help.

    Not sure really. Not knowledgeable on shocks or mountain bikes for that matter. I just know it doesnít spring back and bike is unridable since the fork rubs on the tire.
    Thank you for the link - Iíll check it out but still not sold on this fork though.

    It is a classic and one of the earliest ones that worked. It will take the edge off bumps but anywhere in the league of today's forks.I don't need another one but I'd take it off your hands you are going to throw it

    The earlier Manitou suspension are all one form of another of a shishkebab of squishy elastomers or MCU's and springs. No hydraulics to worry about.

    Sorry to pimp another forum, but it is for a good cause.

    Here is a rebuild example.

    I would guess the elastomers you have in your Manitou 1's there have collapsed due to old age only.

    Looking for a few parts to complete a restoration of my 1993 Monster Fat.

    M735 XT Brakes & levers (complete set) or
    M560 Levers only (no shifters or pod needed, have thumbies)
    Pedals of similar vintage

    Well-Used is fine, this bike has lots of "patina".

    thanks for any leads!

    /Greg

    Looking for a full set (front an drear) of black Paul Stoplight canti brakes. Anyone have a spare set they're looking to get rid of?

    Looking for retro water bottle cages, especially with pink or blue tones. 1980's 1990's Zefal or Specialized would be most likely to work.

    Hey Guys,

    Looking for a nicer 27.0 seatpost with some layback. Ritchey branded nitto would be my ideal. Have some VRC items for trade or happy to discuss a fair price. Thanks!

    Hi ALL,
    maybe kind of a long shot but I'd love to have a second singlespeed frame next to my Lobster. Is something out here?

    Specs: steel, 18"-20" (c-t) and at least 22.5" (c-c TT)

    Thanks so much!

    bp101, I just picked up a bike earlier this week with the Manitou shocks and have just got them apart to rebuild them. I found this manual online and it has helped.

    Kinda newish, but looking for a rear swing arm for a 99 Mantra. Freebie because somehow the owner managed to destroy the BB shell.

    Well, damn it! I cracked the top cup of a chris king no-logo headset.
    Thread for Wanted Items for Vintage MTB Only-king-crack.jpg
    Long shot, but I'm hoping someone has a matching cup or whole headset that they'd be willing to part with. Could probably be bottom or top since there's no logo, and it doesn't necessarily need bearings. If all else fails, I'd consider a logo cup I suppose. Silver, 1". Thanks!

    If you can't find one call CK up and ask if they can help you out. They've been known to work the occasional miracle.

    I picked up an old Fat Chance frame (1988 i believe) but am missing the fork. I Would like to buy one, unicrown from a 1986-1990ish Fat. Color doesn't matter but yellow is what I need and it's for a large size frame. 1" threaded

    Nice pick up, what's the serial number? It will tell you what year it is.

    It's an odd serial number. 88 Fat Chance catalog shows it as a U brake frame but mine is Canti brake, an old Fat employee told me some were special ordered that way but that's all I really know.

    Has Suntour dropouts, press fit BB, 1" head

    It's an '88, the 114th built that year, not sure about the "B", I've seen that in a few serial numbers. The '88 catalog has '87 bikes in the pics, the only year U-brakes were standard.

    It takes a fork with 2" of rake to go with it's 69deg head tube angle.
