Well, there we were looking round Velo Land in Narbonne down in the south of France when Mrs Wu spotted this (not so) little fella just crying out to be rescued amongst all the Giant and Decathlon full sussers in the row of 2nd hand bikes outside.

A lengthly conversation about the price led me to think it was €425 Euro and I was about to walk off and leave him when Mrs Wu (the brains behind the operation - clearly) managed to ask the chap in 'proper' French and we discovered he was €95 Euro!

£62.00! What a bargain. And virtualy immaculate condition. Could do with some grease in the hubs, but hardly a scratch on it. Metallic nail varnish rose pink and turquoise stickers.

Going to look oh so good with Turquoise ano parts to match those Turq decals.

Mate, That Stumpy looks sweet! Really pretty with all that XT stuff etc. If you are going to replace parts with turquoise ano ones, please let me know if you are willing to sell some of the Spesh parts. Really interested of the tyres, pedals & crankset... ;)

Absolute bargain. I recently rebuilt my brother's bike which is the same as this one. He got it after he snapped the standard Stumpjumper frame. The shop wanted him to race for them so upgraded him. Seem to remember them being a couple of pence under £800. Cost the same as my Kili Comp but weighed a good bit less. I used to call it the Rumpcruncher Comp as my bike seemed more comfy. Both bikes still in use and recently managed the red and black routes in Halden Forest.
