I’ve broken my Specialized duck! I’ve never owned it ridden one before so time to change that.

I’ve just collected this lovely example with complete XC Pro. In the flesh it’s totally gorgeous, I love the dark purple/black colour with the yellow writing.

Not many changes I’ll make beyond a full rebuild with some better tyres, different cable hangers and a few other tweaks. I love the yellow on the saddle matching the frame.

Can’t wait to ride it, I’ll post pictures as it goes but it won’t be a long build thread.

Fantastic! Where did you find it?

This is my favourite year and model... probably one of my unicorns if I was to be honest.

Hopefully you will love the ride. The '91 and '92 Stumpies are probably my favourites, should have probably kept my '92 thinking about it :facepalm:

That is nice. Very clean. I've had two. None as nice as yours.

I must say I can’t wait to ride it. I think it might become my regular rider.

The team was a class act: full suntour xc pro. And yes; the deep purple frame paint is mesmerizing. Well done.

Very nice. I had a 91 Team in pearl white, and it was my 2nd favorite bike ever. Hopefully I'll find another one someday.

So what was your favourite then?

For a mountain bike, it's my 98 Stumpjumper pro with full XTR M950.
