    In 2000 it got probably what would be called here bastardized but it was in keeping with the signs of the times in my neck of the woods. It has served me well over the years doing double duty as a town bike and trail bike. There have been other bikes that have come and gone but it remains my favorite bike. Here it is as specced today in the wild.

    No. Those are just a species of coastal pine that have a dark and scaly bark. The Pacific is about 150yds behind the back tire.

    Early ride the other morning on the 33rd anniversary of the original Stumpjumper. It's gone back to its short stem and wide, riser bars, slack head angle and also has a modern rendition of the original Hite Rite. Interestingly, the weight is still about the same 3 decades later.

    When determining correct positioning for drop bars on your Cunningham, one must only use a CAT Fit Finder. Infinitely adjustable and fully functional. Micro tune until you're sure.

    Ha, I hadn't been doing any mtbing in ages, mostly road riding, made some changes to my zaskar which made it even more super awesome, then got on the Xizang and it was Terrible! Like truly crap, to the point of thinking of selling it, then I figured before I do that, I'll put back on the stem i took off...presto set a PR on that trail above by 2 min over me thinking the Zaskar was great, haha. i have no idea why I put on a 110mm/Zero rise stem over a 100mm/6 i'm truly stupid...little thing, big difference.

    Cool bike. Just an FYI, the housing run from top tube to seat stays could be shortened up a good inch and a half. Brakes would work/feel better.

    Local ride today.

    Ultimate is a very cool bike. Geometry and layout is spot on for my tastes.

    Was also reminded that the original Smoke Compe was the best damn tire - and I rode them all back then.

    Steve

    Thanks Steve - they ride differently but both feel good.

    Most of our riding is split between two places:
    Lewis Morris Park in Morristown, NJ and Six Mile Run in North Brunswick, NJ

    Lewis Morris has many short but steep sections with rocks and roots interspersed with some swoopy runs down hill which have hairpins just as you're getting up to speed.

    Six Mile is flatter and generally easier with fewer sections of rocks and roots but still a lot of fun.

    Both are surrounded by lush greenery Spring through Fall and the Fall is spectacular as the leaves change.

    There are a few other places but those two make up the bulk of our rides.
    Occasionally Mtnwng and Fatmikey join us and when -Anomie- was local, he would make virtually every ride.

    Would like to have a few more VRC folk along for the rides so if you're in the neighborhood ...

    Slow pedal around today. Had been fiddling with the gears, and they all worked perfectly right up until the instant I really need them in a techy spot, down I went, first crash in an age... was a bit wet and sloppy, and 5C blah... also had to share the trail with some right fools.

    LOL
    It's almost always a chore to get going but once I'm in the saddle Ned, Tinker, Rishi and Tomac are just barely out of sight and the chase is on.
    I usually get lapped two or three times by them before my first loop is done.
