    I always look forward to your posts.

    Great bikes, fantastic photos, full build spec. So cool.

    The action ride shots are a great touch!

    All your photos are awesome. Each one could be framed and hung on a wall. We should all take note.

    Nice bike too

    Beautiful bike, excellent photography! Early-style decals and socketed fork, plus a very early serial number.

    What kind of Panaracers are those? They look almost identical to the original Stumpjumper tires.

    You always take the coolest pictures. I can just see you setting up the camera timer and doing several "runs" to capture those action shots, fantastic! Yes and nice bike too!

    I believe this is the bike that I sold on ebay last year. I am very happy to see that you have completely restored it. I wanted to keep it but didn't have the means to return it to its original condition and was hoping that someone out there would. It looks incredible! Congratulations!

    Hey guys, last year I recieved a free 81' Stumpjumper, not in perfect condition. I've never restored anything, so I was wondering if you guys could point me in the right direction, show me somewhere that describes the process? I have all the parts of the bike needed. Thanks everyone.

    Nice Stumpjumper! Great pictures! Thought I would post a couple pictures of my two 1982 stumpjumpers.

    This one is missing original grips and pedals. I replaced the seatpost w/ longer one. I just received a matching silver Blackburn Mtn Front Rack that I'm anxious to install.



    This one is completely original!



    This would be my 1992 Stumpjumper Comp
