1983 StumpJumper: The Bike that changed an Industry.
Well ridden but not abused, this is an unmolested original.
Chromo steel with nice simple lugs.
Classic components including:
Sugino AT triple crankset, Suntour Mountech F/R
derailleurs w/ Suntour silver thumbies, 5sp
freewheel, cartridge bearing hubs, Mafac cantis with
Tommesselli motor cycle brake levers, one peice
Bullmoose handlebar/stem. Suntour Beartrap pedals, original Avocet Touring saddle.
Period correct Specialized nobby tires (but room for Big Apples or Fat Franks!)
A few minor paint nicks here
and there. No sissy suspension stuff.
It's been cleaned and lubed. I've replaced the worn rear
der. with an original NOS Mountech long cage.
Replaced the headset bearings, BB and rear hub
cartridge bearings and the derailleur cables, rides as
Specialized released a commemorative version of this
bike a few years ago, non lugged, modern components, sold for
Own the Original.
I'm 5'8" and it fits me fine. Saddle top to bottom
bracket center measures 70cm as pictured. Long WB,
slack angled old school geometry.
Quick and dirty measurements:
Standover Ht:78 cm
