Here is my finally completed Stumpjumper FSR XC fully revitalised.
This has taken me nearly 3 years to complete from buying it off ebay, but now it is finally done and ready to ride.
The bike wasn't in great condition when I received it, however I last year had it powder coated before finding a donor bike to allow the back end to be fully replaced with a BETD link and seatstay. I also managed to pick up some Pace forks and an XTR front mech and shifters to go with the existing XTR rear mech.

As I received it
Now with some of my existing kit taken from my GT
Following the powdercoating. Note you can see on the chainstay the reinforcing due to the dreaded Stumpy cracking. This repair gave me a headache as I had to reduce the plate put in place to stop the front mech clashing when the suspension was compressed. Managed to find someone selling a chainstay to replace it.
Now updated with BETD rear end, Pace RC36 Stealth forks and FSA chainset.
and finally complete with XTR front mech, shifters, and Truvativ Stylo bars
