Nice find, especially signed by the Captain.

Seem to recall when the book came out they offered it for half price if you owned a Stumpjumper. Had a lengthy discussion with one of the staff in a local bike shop about the provenance of my Stumpjumper and whether the discount would be honoured. They did in the end, hah.

It's a nice book but there's a lot of gravy and not enough meat. Doesn't really explain why the Stumpy is still so revered and it doesn't cover all the different ones. The beautiful 1994 green bikes are very noticeable by their absence.

I would have to agree in part, I did expect that it would be a bit more in depth, but still worth the money I recon
