    1999 Specialized FSR S-Works

    I bought this bike back in 1999, primarily because of how light it was whilst still offering the benefits of limited suspension. It underwent a major rennovation circa 2005 when I replaced the original Manitou forks with a pair of PACE RC39s, a new rear shock, XT cranks, mavic wheels and a front...

    1986 Specialized Rockhopper

    Been doing some research on this bike and can find little information about the bike. It has been said that it was the first year of the Rockhopper. Their is contradictory information saying 1985 was the first year? I am unable to find a catalog or manuals for this year. So far as I can tell it...

    ~Just a post out of curiosity~ This has been asked before by a different person on another forum, but it still hasn’t gotten a reply.

    Background: So I was initially looking around for a nice set of Mavic X 217 or 517 rims/wheels to replace the 117's on my Cannondale. I found a pair on EBay, but they were already attached to a bike. No matter, the seller kindly couriered the Stumpjumper all the way from Barnstaple, Devon...

    1999 Specialized Stumpjumper Pro

    Hi retrobike forum. Just wondering if anyone knows what this bike might be worth? I had this bike handed down to me by a friend when I was younger, it’s had a lot of use and has a fair bit of wear and tear on the paint and a lot of the parts are certainly not original. But it’s Well serviced and...

    Which bike to convert to Gravel?

    So I am wanting to try converting an old mountain bike to a gravel bike. Some of my concerns include reach because going to gravel bars from flat will effect handling, and the second big concern is tire size. The two bikes I have to choose from are a 1992 Gary Fisher Sphinx 700c tires or a 1990...

    1996 Specialized Stumpjumper

    1996 Specialized Stumpjumper I got this 20 inch frame a few weeks ago from Rampage for the princely sum of just £20. Cosmetically it certainly has patina, but it's structurally fine and free of any rust. So after establishing it's a 96 indigo blue Stumpjumper I set about deciding how to go...

    1992 Specialized M2

    Having promised myself I wouldn't ever buy another bike with a smaller than 20" frame, this was such a bargain I couldn't resist. I didn't buy it with the intention of keeping it, or certainly not the frame, but having ridden it it isn't as cramped as I though, so I'm tempted! More pictures...
