Found some old photos of my Stumpie M2 the other day, so here's the scans.

Image

For some reason they been taken in the 'magnet through Halfords' pose with everything on :oops: :roll:

Image

Spec:
95ish M2 frame
RST USA Mozo Pro 85mm travel
LX cranks (changed to XTR later on)
Xrays changed to XT STi
Diacompe levers PC5?
LX Cants (brakes were changed to XT V-brakes at some point)
LX on Mavic rims changed to Spins 8)
XT rear mech, LX front
Gore Cables

Absolutely brilliant bike, fab handling. Perhaps a little harsh/stiff, but i was young so it didn't matter :lol:

Yeah that sums them up. They're heavy but look fantastic.
Sold the spins, then sold the M2 to fund a Cannondale Raven :twisted:
I've had 4 stumpies in total, still own 2; An 98 M2 Pro and a 98 Stumpie steel 8)

Stumpies are just great bikes :D
