Hi,

just want to share some of the pix of the finally finished Stumpjumper project. Some of you have helped out with parts and advice. Thanks for that, this is a great forum.

It's not built to original specs all the way, partly because I didn't have everything and was sick of looking for missing pieces, partly because I don't value the slick catalogue builds as a goal in itself.

If you want more, this is the build-thread from the German forum: http://www.mtb-news.de/forum/showthread.php?t=523457

Enjoy.

Looks good! I love those Specis from - let´s say - end of the eighties/ beginning of the nineties. I think you´ll like it a lot. How did you get a grip on those nicely looking Umma Gumma tyres? From my impresssion they´re as rare as real.... uhmm....virgins. :)

Mid 90s Specialized are so classy 8)

Yeah catalogue and XT-only builds are so boring... If parts look right and work right, they are right :wink:

Think I would fit a black stem though to match the LX and seat post

Mid-Nineties Specialized(s) make for a wonderfully classy and sophisticated machine, in both ride and looks. I remember drooling over the Stumpjumper when I all I could afford, and can afford *que violin*, is the Hardrock :D.
