What kind of stem did you put on ? It looks a bit more vintage than the rest of the bike or is that just what I'm thinking..?


That's Specialized Team CrMo stem, quill model 130mm. Standard equipment on the '91 Ultimate.

And thanks for the compliments! :D

An update to an old project: I managed to make this bike even better:

- NOS 1991 stamped Selle Italia Turbo with smooth leather (instead of Suede SLG version)
- NOS Suntour Hardliner cables & outers for the brakes (most important was to get the proper oversize cable ends that fit into brake levers perfectly)
- excellent condition Specialized bottle cage
- NOS 1990 stamped Specialized water bottle

I don't own one, but every time i see an Epic Ultimate i think it is pure beauty and one of the best looking MTBs ever built. So classy as well as your effort here!
