The left side drive is a reversed pic.

Still, I hope this is a joke.

For the record, I had a late 80s stumpjumper that I loved. Fortunately mine went to a GOOD home.

No it really isn't.

You can paint the frame. But honestly, you painted over the cassette, chain, and chainwheels?

Are you high?

You got paint on the braking surfaces, cassette, chain, derailleurs, chainrings, and probably an innumerable amount of nooks where there should be no paint (BB, hubs, housings). You have considerably shortened whatever remaining life that bike had left by not taking time to strip the parts off. But hey, it looks cool (and if you don't give a *u*k what we think, why'd you post in the first place?).

Dude, you should paint the headset rims and spokes too. Blackout style!

Make sure to get an extra thick layer on the chain. It will be the first spot to rub off.

I mean, it would be bad enough if you did this to, like, an old 820 or something. But a Stumpjumper? My God, you are an idiot.

They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. If your dad let you do this, then I know what side of the family you get your IDIOT genes from. Neither of you deserved to have a decent bike, and now you don't. I'm just really disgusted by this, and by your attitude.
