    That's a gorgeous brute!!



    The Rockhoppers that I used in that configuration were my most successful drop bar MTBs, I'll bet the Stumpjumper is a great rig :thumb:

    Thanks Papa Tom, the tires are CST Cyclops (26x2.4 I think.) Not sure if they're still available, but they're really heavy - I traded them out for Schwalbe Big Apples eventually.

    Nice score, that's one of very few Land Sharks I've seen with an understated paint scheme, they're usually pretty flamboyant.

    Thanks...

    I had a larger one that was pretty close to what I'd ride in the seat tube measurement, but it had me way too stretched out. I could see these working well as a road bike for someone with a longer...

    I bought a blue & white 950 for the parts that were on it. It pained me to toss the frame, but it had terminal internal rot. :(

    That reminds me of the "socketed" dropouts that Trek started using in the 80's to simplify production, they're pretty common now.

    The 11.8 is a great bike, I wouldn't pass one up simply because it has replacement wheels (unless there are other problems.) My 11.8 has 700c tubular wheels.
