:) Very nice DP...I love it!.

Looks very clean and smart

I'm thinking of the dangerous idea of trying Gripshift soon. :P

They just give the control centre a nice clean look

I've had the gripshifts from about '94. Very robust and love the way you can trim the front. I just tried some XTR rapidfires on this build but couldnt get with 'em. I'm certainly in the gripshift camp.

Like Simonside's rockhopper too. Looks purposeful...and FAST :)

Here's my 1996 M2 Stumpjumper, I bought it a couple of years ago off eBay here in Oz. The guy I bought it from still had the original receipt and owners manuals, looks like it was imported from Hawaii to Australia at some point and still has a Honolulu bike permit on the frame. Hadn't been used much as the original tyres were still fitted - now ridden daily!
