But unless you're over 6'6" (and judging by the saddle height, you're not) you'd be better off with a much smaller frame...


i agree but i can't find anything like it in smaller frame. I have looked everywhere.

I've just finished this 1992 Stumpjumper. Couple of tweaks before I'll consider it 'complete', but I'm riding it as it is for now.

Most people don't like the looks of dropped bar mtb's but i love the way it looks and rides!

That's beautiful, Allard; I would not change a thing except the saddle. Di you make a reader's ride thread on this?
