bonjour post 98ers.

I am currently altering my collection as i have a few bikes that dont get ridden and i have no love for them.

In the process i am ending up with various bits and bobs. what are they worth?

Only joking...

my question is this, I have a 1999 specialized Stumpjumper FSR something or other currently fitted with a 98 bomber fork.

I have just split my inbred and have a 2009 (?) rock shox reba sl sat doing nothing. I love this fork but it is disc only.

I have in the post a 1998 klein mantra which is going to be single speed.

which frame should get which fork?

my gut feelin is that i am less bothered about the fsr being period correct as it is "just a bike" to me, i like it, but i dont consider it to be something to get excited about - it is just too new. The mantra, although only a year earlier i feel a little differently about.

If the reba goes on the specialized i will have to got a new shifter pod too as it is an sti unit at the minute and runing avid v's.

If the reba goes on the mantra I can just run a disc on the front and dont need to worry about shifters due to it being singlespeed.

I am told both forks are 100mm

what would scooby do?

Stick the Rebas on the Spesh, sell your disc brake and buy a BB7 with the proceeds.

And bb7 or similar is an excellent idea also!

Let us know how you get on, via build threads or otherwise.

Haha. Funny you should mention that - there is a terribly listed orange 5 on eBay at the moment
