I bought the 1993 deep red Stumpy for my Misses and it had no direct drive forks fitted and I really really wanted a ride with matching forks. I built it up with a Suntour XC Pro/Limited Group set and when completed I wasn't happy.

My lovely Brother found the Pink one on Bay this year and some reason as you say there wasn't that much interest - I picked it up for under £100.00 including delivery. It had what I think to be the original LX/XT group set with LX hubs on Velocity Rimms. All original Specialized Saddle, Seat Stem, Bars, Seat QR and quill stem. Most importantly matching Direct Drive forks ;-) As usually the listing had no details of components I just took a punt on it. To be honest the condition of both my Stumpy’s isn’t great, they both have scratches and chips all over them but I personally don’t agree with re-spraying original frames.

I love this Pink Bike (Sometimes more than the S Works), is from the USA? Is it a special build? I wonder how many others are out there !!

I have got a lot early 90’s stuff for sale, including the Red Stumpy and when I get some time I will get it all listed on here.

Cheers, Chris

Mine didn't. Cranks were Specialized ST-4, thumbshifters were DX. I think the rest was XT. The hubs certainly were, and the rims were Specialized, which means Chris Red's wheels aren't original.

Here's mine again:

It used to be pink: I wish I'd kept it that way.

Very very nice bike!! I did think the Rimms looked incorrect but they are early 90's LX hubs so wasn't sure but should be XT with Specialized Rimms (I have a front wheel only knocking around too)... Also best part of MY Bike was the Specialized ST-4 cranks. Thanks for info Jim
