    help me identify this mountain bike frame?

    I got the frame with the cranks and handlebars, but not much else. It has a distinctive little 'stinger' coming off of the frame just beneath the stays, behind the seat tube toward the top.

    This is what I know--

    Frame is rigid.
    Bike is at least 13 years old. Maybe closer to 20ish.
    Came with Suntour components.
    The cranks (triple 48-38-28) say: "Sugino MP 110"
    Distinctive 'stinger'
    Fairly distinctive weld/brazing connections.

    Mtn bike? Almost looks like a touring frame. Why would a mtn bike have a pump peg in the rear triangle?

    That's a good point.

    I didn't know what a pump peg was-- so that tells me a little more, but I know from the previous owner of the frame that the bike was originally outfitted as a "mountain" bike. But I get what you're saying-- it does like like touring bike geometry.

    Lots of older mountain bikes were really spread out with a lot of room between the seat tube and tire.
    What size wheels fit the frame?

    It came with 26" wheels, like most mountain bikes. It had old style "u-pull" cantilever brakes, and 18 speeds (6-speed cassette).
