We used to sell a lot of stumpy's at my old shop, they are nice, but why oh why all the love for this one?

there are 3 other bikes posted that I would take over the specialized any day.

mass production over handmade?

the concept is nice I guess...

Excellent, a stripped Klein without a naff respray! Good honest bike.
Great example of how Klein seat tubes get cracked too. ;)

Thanks - the original intention was to get it resprayed but I was surprised at how much I liked the raw alu look and I didn't have the heart to paint over it when it had taken so bloody long to strip! ...and btw the seatpost is *just* long enough! :lol:

The combination of Accu Trax and KLEIN is nice :wink: I think a black seatpost could do well.

Now you mention it, a black post and zooka would match the forks really nicely but I like going for silver parts most of the time as they tend to stay looking new for longer...

And in response to the previous comment - yeah, I'd take a Ti Fat or an Adroit over the Stumpy as my personal ride but until I saw that I had no idea Specialized had been around so long - a practically NOS condition 20yr old MTB is indeed something special!

Bart, you really need to align your tyre logos opposite your valve holes...
Then align your tyres front and back to match for the pic..
Then you can have my vote :lol:

Would you please, PLEASE, refrain from repeatedly displaying the Stumpjumper before my green eyes. It's not nice, drooling at my age.... that'll come soon enough!

:lol:

It was nearly NOS when I finished it a month ago! But I just can't keep it in the garage. I just have to use it! It's a lovely ride. Not for wild tracks though...

To be honest, if I had the choice between all shown bikes so far, I'd just take all of them, all are great bikes 8)
