Here is my Specialized Stumpjumper A1 FS 1996 with mostly LX (some Deore - Hubs and front der.).........


I'll vote for it! :D

Thought about entering mine, but alas, it wears XT hubs.

After reading through pages upon pages or argument about whats mid range to see if Deore DX is mid range, i'm entering my alpinestars cro-mega DX anyway. Definitely mid range IMHO as it was the 2nd lowest in heirachy of 5 models. John, if you don't agree please dispose of to the Retrobike HQ bin.

:lol: :wink:

perhaps that post should be moved.


or at least take the back rack off it


Thats no rack...its a new kind of portable grill. Just check the amount of lights pointing at it :wink:


perfect for tailgating at the futbol match...wait, do you guys tailgate, or is that just strictly an american football phenomenon :D


We don't have the weather for it so stop rubbing our noses it it :roll: :P


Weather? Are you kidding? The first game or 3 sure its nice but by week 4 or 5 its nothing but rain, snow, some combination of the 2 and more often than not horrifically cold. That said drinking beers and shouting J! E! T! S! JETS JETS JETS!! at the top of my lungs in the middle of a parking lot could well be the --soaking wet, shiveringly frozen-- highlight of my week.

And yes, most of the time I ride the 9 miles to the game. But meet more car bound 'gaters there for the warm ride home.

And my hats off to you, a 4 game slide is a bit harder to swallow for NY's golden boys than for us Jets fans watching yet another inevitably dismal season. This week though it will be different.

Oh and I almost forgot here's my entry... an all original 1998 Amp B4. Full LX group aside from the brake calipers and front hub (Amp D1 discs).

ah yes, things are not going too well right now. they'll start running the ball again, and things will get back on track.

That's a good rugged looking amp.
