Thanksgiving Specialized StumpJumper

I was given this StumpJumper by my dad just a few days ago. He said he probably put 20 miles on it 15-20 years ago. Can anyone give me more info on this bike? I searched but Google was not my friend.



Also, any advice on getting the bike trail worthy? what I should pay attention to, look out for, etc...?


btw, I also did a search on BF but Specialized StumpJumper is too common of a term...<shrug>

C'mon, your teasing us aren't you?

Mate, if thats for real then dust it, lube it, check the tyres for cracks when you pump them up and ride it.

And take a couple spare tubes with you.

Thanks Cyclops!

It's real.

I've been riding the same Kona Smoke (still stock) for the past few years so I don't have any real experience with a Mountain Bike.

I was also hoping to figure out the year it was made but I realize that's not really very important to tomorrow's ride...

Put that Guerciotti water bottle on the shelf before it gets messed up. I should have bike year here in a minute.

Looks like a DX rear derailer so must be early 90s. And those kickass thumbshifters!!!!!

I'm feeling 1991 kinda...

1992, I think, although the German catalog shows a black shock, pretty similar otherwise. No Stumpys with shocks in '91.

Here's the catalog on retrobike.co.uk.

as long as the fork is still functional, Id say take it out. Maybe put new tires on, take the bottle out, new brake pads. Ride


and remove pie plate.

Thanks LesterofPuppets - exactly what I was looking for.

escarpment, thanks for the advice. Pie plate is already gone

A Stumpjumper FS - FS for FutureShock. Definitely a '92 with the thumbies. The 1993 came with rapidfire shifters. Those old Futureshocks are not that bad.

I'm just about done overhauling a '93 Stumpy FS...maybe I'll post a photo later on.

ncfisherman that would be great. There doesn't seem to be a lot of info readily available on these StumpJumpers.

I really appreciate all the help/info/suggestions in this thread. So much more helpful than blindly going in to the LBS and asking for help.

A 93 Stumpy is probably a steel frame, not aluminum. Those old steel Stumpys are bringing some serious money. I'd say once the tires are replaced and if the fork works well, it probably would bring around $300, maybe a little less, depending on the market location.

I have a related question. I picked up a nearly complete aluminum StumpJumper hardtail from a thrift store in a small town. Dirty but not banged up, blue original paint. Cantilever brakes. The rims were Mavic and all components were Shimano XTR in a dark grey annodization. Looks like a nice fork, too. It's 3 x 8-speed. Any idea what year this is?

Pics would help. XTR debuted in 1992 and went 9-speed in 1999 so if orig. parts, then it's between those two years.

That's definitely the steel version(Tange Prestige tubing), but they also made aluminum Stumpy's in that year.

Here's the '93 Stumpy FS...



And my old '93 S-Works which had the M2 aluminum frame...
