Now I don't know if this is a keeper....I have been a leetle trigger happy with Ebay and have too many things...plus a gold 98 steel Stumpjumper coming this week....I'm in deep shite if the Mrs finds out :lol: :lol: . And its a wee to big at 19" and my mate wants to buy it.
This arrived today.
1998 M2 Stumpjumper in (insert the right descriptive) green. I like it...a lot.
Took all the gubbings off and played around with some bits in the cave.
Eventually I think I want a 1x9....something to muck around with on the beach etc.
Can't do that with the UNO ring as its 1/8th and I guess a 1/8th chain won't go round a rear mech....plus I want a close ratio road mech and short cage.
Have a spider for the cranks....but don't like the looks.
Heyho.....we'll see.
Frame is not very far short of NOS. Sweet 8)

St Marys Street. Many a nice boozer around there. (A pint of Brains S.A please) Millenium Stadium is behind the buildings directly on the left. Cardiff Castle is at the end of the street in the direction you are looking.
Cardiff is decidely lacking in a decent bike shop in the centre of town.

That Specialized is very nice BTW
