You know, I'm surprised there aren't that many talking about 90's Stumpjumpers. Maybe these photographs might change that. Thanks.
I've got a bunch of the old 8-9 speed XTR stuff in my basement, even the old Rapid-rise, remote shifter, 4-arm cranks.. XTR stuff... some NOS still in box.
Let me know if you're looking for replacement parts.

Thank you, for the offer. But I am actually trying to sell some parts and framesets myself.

My current trail bikes, from oldest to newest.

Custom Curtlo softail, my first and favorite custom frame-built for 27.5 wheels when they were called 650b and there were only three tires and two forks to choose from. Ordered in 2008, received in 2009.




2015 Santa Cruz 5010, my first carbon bike and favorite full suspension bike to date! (My 8th FS bike since my 1996 Proflex) On the RAMBA trails in Michigan's Upper Penninsula



And my Otso Voytek fatbike, my 2nd fat bike after my 2012 Mukluk and my 2nd carbon bike after the 5010.

Nice Stumpjumper, and great condition also. Its great to see original owners on these old bikes. I understand about the parts, I have this 93 Breezer that is getting more and more pricey to keep running in somewhat period-correct high-end condition.



Here's my 92 Stumpjumper Comp with risers and modern cranks, a great riding and lightweight bike

Trek 4500 project. It was a gift, and it needed a lot of work. Before...





And After. Converted to a single speed MTB (I have added a chain tensioner since this pic).

Alright, new update on the DV9 and additions to the family. My wife didn't feel the Air 9 so my 17 y/o daughter snagged it, now my wife is on a 2018 Orbea Loki H10 (It's an H-LTD++ after I upgraded it, lol)

DV9 went from GX Eagle to XX1 Eagle, 2 wheelsets for trails and gravel/road and Sram Code RSC brakes 180mm F/R, CB Stamp 11 pedals, Ergon GA3 grips in red, Chris King Headset, Industry 9 40mm red stem and changed the teal color to red (Looks red/orange, close enough)













Wife's Loki got GX Eagle drivetrain upgrade (from Shimano SLX i think), Code RSC brakes 180mm F/R, 760mm CF handlebars, CB Stamp 5 pedals, Ergon GA3 grips in blue and an industry 9 40mm blue stem.

^ I usually think the gold of XX1 is too bling, but with the black, white and red it looks great! Nice job @HyBr1D

Wow everyone! I just got a 2018 Trek Fuel EX 29 and need to personalize it a bit since it looks too generic, this is good inspiration.

lovely bike I have been eying s works and stumpjumpers for years on ebay but the ones I have seen were often in bad shape and with a lot of dings and scratches, also I am not sure that it would be the most comfortable ride for me. Are the wheels 27.5??

No, they are 26" or 559. I've seen many turn Stumpjumpers and Hard Rocks converted from 26" to 27.5".
