Alas project stumpjumper is no more :( I've decided to break it and the frames been put in the cupboard for a possible reinacarnation at a later date. It suffered from a few snags and the ride wasn't all that great if I'm honest. Also something about the build never really sat right, maybe to fussy for a stumpy, who knows. Whatever happens next it will be built more as a rider than a looker.


cool.

regarding your sig, would you have any use for an american classic purple bottle holder from bitd?

I shall say at the moment no, I'm trying really hard to stop with the random purchases and stick to finishing 4(???) builds I have in the works. It is futile but it shall persevere :twisted: :lol: the AC skewer is because I've got a seat bolt and a rear but thought I would try the longshot for a front.

I'm taking this off Klaus's hands now....

Won't be doing anything nearly this nice with it. Everything off the fatigued Dynatech that will fit will be going on it. And for now an old LX front mech and blue USE seatpost to cover the bits that don't.....

Been after a steel stumpy for years......

Stunning Kaiser! Very clean and sharp looking, as IWGO said 'look fast'

Cheers,

Chaser.
