    1992 Stumpjumper

    Craigslist find 1992 Stumpjumper base model. I had one of these back then.
    This is now one of a few a commuter/townie bikes in my garage.

    In search of an OEM Specialized saddle and grips from this period.

    Noticed this Yo Eddy parked in front of my son's middle school the other day. Could be either a student's or teacher's I suppose, but neat either way.

    I'm a sucker for nostalgia and picked up this 1991 Rockhopper Comp today - my first bike addition in quite some time! I had this exact model and color in college in the early 90s and it was my first 'serious' MTB.

    It will get cleaned up and the WeeRide will move from the '95 Ritchey Crazy Pete to this, which is a bit better for riding with my 1.5 year old son without worrying about dings, etc. :-)

    Yes, it currently wears a kick stand! And, yes, that's an original rear Ground Control tire. The front is a period-correct Dart - exactly what I put on my old one in about 1993, when blackwalls were all the rage (and looked so good on this bike with its black rims, etc.).

    Cleaning up well and serving it's purpose with the WeeRide!

    Yeah...that's LX. Not quite as cool as Exage.

    I ran across this one at the local drug store today. M-900 and carbon frame pulling grocery and errand duty.

    I talk bikes with people all the time, but never take the time to take pictures unless there's something pretty rare. This, a 3rensho gone city bike dressed with a bunch of Chinese knock of components.

    Well my days of not taking you seriously are certainly coming to a middle.

    Thx, that's a straight Koski fork with rack mounts by Paul Sadoff.

    The long fade... My colleague Mark Mozart, while in a state of lucid beauty, was watching a sunset over the Monterey Bay. He was so enthralled that those colors became the paint scheme for this bike.

    /the Slingshot has a Ritchey fork

    How does the rear cargo attach to the bike? I was gonna say Koski but the straight ones are not that common.

    The cargo extension is called an Xtracycle Free Radical now sold as the Leap, which "strech-limos" your bike, adding a back seat and a trunk. It bolts to each rear dropout and clamps near the chainstay bridge like a kickstand. This setup was my most useful shopping bicycle for many years.

    My commute has changed so the Ibis is now back to "stock" with drop bars and fat tires. Pics forthcoming sometime.

    Is it just me, or is that pump ^^ painted to match the frame? Nice attention to detail!
