We all have a bike that has a special place in our heart . Mine is a Stumpjumper Team 1991 .

Very rare on ebay , I have only ever saw 3 , I was delighted to find one last week . Seller wa only offering collection , but he agreed to pack it if i was booking a courrier . Snipe was ready and I bought the bike , for a bit more than planned but I ws delighted with my purchase .

Anyway , at long last it arrived on wednesday :

obviously the awfull decals will be removed , and all the equipment is gone and will be for sale shortly .

Pics of the Team decal for John :

BUT to my horror here is a close up pic of the seat tube near the BB :

I am gutted , angry , upset etc.....

I have contacted the seller but he hasnt replied yet and as he wasnt taking paypal I paid by cheque . But he has 100% on 100+ transaction .
so wait and see .

do you think it can be repaired without changing the tube ???

Definitely a new tube, no question.

Looking at around £100+ I believe.

Keep pestering the owner, perhaps buying through e-bay and his so 100% feedback will ensure he gives you a refund (if that'swhat you want).

I love this era of Stumpjumper, it's a real pity.
