Hi All.

So, after completing the Trek 8700 (well...it's still an on going project as such!) I started to get a bit 'Twitchy' about not having in projects in reserve. I posted a wanted ad with no specific bikes in mind and development_cycle came to my aid with 2 worthy contenders.
I ended up buying both.... more to come on the other purchase but for the time being, here are some start off pics of the Stumpjumper.

Now.
What to do with it?

The paint is absolutely shot and the decals tired but everything else is sound. A repaint and new decals is one the cards, but which direction to go in.

i) Go original 1990 Stumpjumper comp?
White with red decals. spanky22b has already done a very nice one of these.... but I've got a blank canvas here.

ii) Go for a 88 or 89 Stumpjumper Team colourway?
Love this colour scheme but should I be dressing it as something it isn't ( or is? ) The 89 had Canti mounts vs Chainstay U-brake on the 88. The colours are very slightly different also.

iii) Go for an individual take on the Stumpjumper colourway?
I've got a really nice 89/90 Stumpjumper Team jersey in the yellow/ pink colours. Should I do something inspired by this?

I may put a poll up to decide, to see what the collective would like to see....

but in the meantime, I'll be listening to yours thoughts and suggestions here.

Thanks all. Here's those start off pictures.

And there was me thinking four-arm chainsets were a late '90s abomination. Turns out they're a late '80s abomination.

Re:

Good to see this article scanned!

It’s the 1988 team Stumpjumper with ubrake: lugged tange prestige built in Japan.

The bike in the article might very well be mine! I bought mine in 1989 and the guy said it had been used as the magazine press bike.

The 4 arm chain set is a Browning electronic shift set up that was offered as an option.
 

Peachy!

Re:

Poll now up! - Interested to see where this goes and what the collective want to see.

Pictures of voting options in the post before the magazine scan.
Narrowed it down to these 4 options after some thought. Poll runs for 3 weeks so plenty of time to strip it and get it ready for paint! (Hopefully!! :LOL: )

Hadn't noticed that adroitstif! - was looking beyond and had assumed it was silver XT. Good thing doctor-bond was able to identify it. It's not from the same Browning connection as my Marin PM though!

Cheers doctor-bond. Been checking out your own 1988 Team in your signature. Interesting that yours could be the actual bike in the test. If the FS ad was in an earlier MBUK, I may well have a look for it!

The ‘88 colours are cool: I like the purple and white comp, although there is also the way groovy green to consider ....

Purple and White added to the Poll :cool:

Cheers Peachy! Poll Now added! :D - interested to see where this goes.

Cheers Nic. Get a vote in for the white and red!
As it's going to need a complete repaint, I'm going to go with which ever way the poll goes. Haven't necessarily thought what I'll do if the Jersey option wins though.

Cheers all.
