Hello everyone - I've just discovered this forum. I own a 1991 Specialized Stumpjumper Comp which I purchased new all those years ago. Due to my transport needs at that time, I quickly converted the machine for road use. I'll post some pictures later...

Below are a couple of images of my mountain bike taken earlier today

As I said above, at the time of purchase I was working and regularly commuting by bicycle to a large city in the UK. On my various routes to and from home there were plenty of large potholes, so I wanted a bike that would be fairly robust. Hence the conversion of this machine to road use. What do you think of my aging MTB?

Hi imppact
Welcome to the forum.
That Stumpy is lovely, you can see its been well cared for. They are pretty versatile machines, you can race them,trail ride them, tour on them and as you show can commute on them.
Long live the Stumpy! 8)
