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.
