That's lovely Col 8) I'm not a big Specialized fan but would love that. Looking forward to seeing some more pics

Cheers Adrian, I think there are certain bikes from most manufacturers which have a universal appeal. The weather's pretty horrible today but I'll get the bike out for a run and take some better pic's as soon as I can.

Some better pic's. I ended up fitting the original U-brake (complete with faded arm) the replacement I got has a damaged spring tensioner on one side by the looks of it so was binding on the wheel.

Thanks it's not completely mint but given this bikes history it seemed wrong to lose the patina.

I've not had a chance to take it out for a ride yet, got a few days off work now though so should be soon.

Thanks very much, I've enjoyed researching the history on this one as much as building the bike TBH. Everyone I've e-mailed for info have been keen to help where they can so very grateful for that (my hours sat googling Stumpjumper Epic's etc have not been wasted at least :lol: ).
