Evening all
This is interesting stuff for sure. I will check my Stumpy comp which is a 2001, it too has the decal on the downtube.
I think most of the Stumpies from 97 onwards had the M2 on the downtube??
I am no expert, not by a long shot :oops: I just have a big liking for Specialized and tell it as I remember it, see it and also from the information I have at my disposal, from dealer/tech books, catalogues and related articles and web forums as well as my own bikes.
I will dig further and see what I can find in the tech book.

Jamie

mot convined it's an m2 stumpy.
reasons
The welding it not as neat as mine.
The 7005 ? on the drop out would suggest not M2 which is a 6000 ali

A rockhopper perhaps ?

yeah it's 7005

the serial starts m8******

thought it might be a 2000 hardrock at first but it seemed a bit too light to be a hardrock, and i cant find any pics of a hardrock with gusseting/stamp at the front. I am pretty sure it is a rockhopper now, cheers roberto

Should hopefully have it built tonight too! cannot wait :)

At least if its a rockhopper the build will be cheaper.
Lx and sram rather than xt/xtr !

Pics of build pls.

I'm making a winter-proof SS commuter. Might be a little bit ugly..

My '97 Hardrock has the 'S' gusset as well. It looks like my serial number starts either M8 or M6, hard to tell though. Still a great frame though.

Aluminium, not sure of the grade though.
