    New question here. Old Stumpjumper pics please!

    I have a 1991 Spec Stumpie Team on its way to me and I want to build it up as a semi-retro fixed gear town-bike (confused? me?)

    I know Spec did a Stumpie in an olive / swamp green in the early 90's so I might go for this with a few red components!

    Later

    It's not a Stumpjumper, but a 1992 S-Works in grey that I got myself for my birthday last weekend. It is covered with lots of coloured anodising, which I am gradually toning down. The brake booster, handlebar brace, chain tensioner, anti-chainsuck plate (fitted upside down!) and coloured bottle cages have been binned and hopefuly I will be getting the standard rigid forks on Friday.

    The bike is in really good condition, with only the handlebars not of the correct era. Does anyone know what components were standard on this model?

    The blue Hope Ti hubs with green Campagnolo rims will be staying put

    You call those old?

    Here's a picture of my StumpJumper. It's an '82.

    What was the deal on the Ned's limited above...... did it have regular steel or aluminum joints with carbon tubes glued in ?

    there many versions of the epic & ultimate epic as time progressed. The most famous being Neds 1990 worlds winning . merlin made ti lugs painted black. cheaper models were also made with steel lugs. later models of the ti frame were gray lugs, although weirdly not polished ti but painted grey ti. I believe 94 was the last year they were made(?) I went to a UK spesky trade show. 3.1K UK pounds retail for the 2.6lb frame, no wonder they're kinda rare

    I remember seeing a similar Stumpjumper and the first production mountain bike for the first time back in 1983 in a army px. "Wow" I was hooked.

    The sad part is that my dad has a 20" Swamp/Green Stumpjumper from 92 NOS in his basement that hasn't seen the light of day in about 6 years...so sad...

    And my mom has a Stumpjumper M2 16" from the same year. Both have original ridgid forks...it's a damn shame...the brake surfaces aren't even scratched yet...

    oh well...they like the idea of having "cool" bikes

    Past Stumpsters

    Here are two I put back in to the general population. 1991 S Works/XC Pro/Future Shock, 1991 S/J I repainted with updated decals, rigid fork and newer LX/XTR running gear. -jy

    1992, I think?

    The toptube is a bit mangled, but I like the Tange Prestige.

    The Time line was probably put together by a 20 something marketing person. click on 1985, " Team Specialized captian Ned Overand wins his first national championship in mountain biking" Although they admit the picture isnt from 1985 they fail to mention that he won that national championship on, I beleive, a Schwinn. He went on to win a World Championship on a Schwinn Paramountain in 1986. Ned started riding for Specialized in 1987!!! Nothing slips by this forum!!!

    I'm sure it's to late, but why would you take all those beautiful anodized parts off? I have been threatening all the major componenet manufacturers by mail and phone to add some color again.

    Still a nice bike though.
