My 1992 Stumpjumper Comp (bought nearly NOS this Summer) with only a couple of things to finish.

and...

My 1993 Rockhopper Comp owned from new and in need of some TLC and a rebuild now it's been relieved of station runner duties.

Great thing is the decals on each is pretty much the colour of the other's paint.

:D

Was that Rockhopper the one that vandalized at the station? Looks good now

Street - you've got a Rockhopper of this era haven't you?

Tintin - Yup, same one, but he's a survivor.

RBG - Kije the Kestrels! Yeah, yin/ yang is the answer clearly. (should have kept my Merlin Softail and had another pairing. :cry:

The stumpy is a work of art, not just to look at, but to ride also.

Gus very kindly let me loose on it back in Aug for the calender shoot,
rides like a new bike and handled the South Downs single track no problem, complete bargin from france of all places!!

The Stumpjumper is lovely, I covet one in my size. Not wanting to be a nit picker and then proceeding to be just that, shouldn't it have cantis fitted or am I getting confused?
