Finally finished! I almost gave up on this project so many times, but I think in this case two (and many more!) wrongs made a right.

A '95ish Specialized Stumpjumper M2. As received (minus...

I must have missed that one! I've been keeping an eye on the marketplace sites, too, to see what people find in their garages after the roofs blew off. I snagged a nice newer Schwinn, but so far not...

Hard Rocks of this vintage have a real weird dropout. It looks like a semi-horizontal when there's a wheel skewered in there, but they left a bridge when machining the dropout to act as a stop.

mountaindave Correct, it's a Sunlite rack with a Wald basket ziptied to it. Works great, super cheap :thumb: They also work in the rear as a saddle bag support.

The bars are Soma Oxford, and the brake levers are Shimano Deore XT M732. You can kinda see in this photo how the shifter cable lays against the brake lever clamp (on the left side):...

I built up an ~’88 Rockhopper Comp for a friend to their specifications using parts from my bins, mostly early 90s DX and XT. I found the frame in a junkyard so I got to have fun with paint and tried...

I took the '83 Schwinn Sierra on a cruise downtown to do some errands. All about that Forgotten Coast aesthetic.

Picked up an '83 Schwinn Sierra out of the junkyard a while back. It's on deck for an overhaul after I do some housekeeping.
From what I understand, this is one of the last Chicago-made Schwinns,...

I know I just posted this, but I've since dialed it in by converting to 2x7, swapping the bars, and adding Nobby Nics. No stumps to jump on this trail, but it handled Florida mud and sand pretty...
