I WILL BOX THIS BIKE SECURELY FOR YOUR COURIER TO COLLECT. 1 Stumpjumper mountain bike was're-created' by Specialized for its 25th Anniversary and here it is. Only 250 of these bikes were made worldwide in 2007 and numbered accordingly as special editions - they even re-produced the legendary "Ground Control" skinwall tyres from 1982 for these bikes making them something quite amazing in this day and age. Very rare opportunity to secure bike no. 28/250 now as a guaranteed investment, collectors piece, wall art, investment or great retro ride (asking price today is 25% less than the new list price back in 2007 to clear some space this spring - long term these bikes will only go up).
A brand new, unused collectors-piece of the bike - completely as it left the Specialized factory. These are rare bikes and impossible to find one today, especially a brand new one complete with the following nice extras. INCLUDED with the bike 1. The hardback book also released by Specialized to mark the 25th anniversary of the Stumpjumper. Correct "Specialized USA" top tube decals added (just like the original).
The lovely original early Stumpjumper Team top from the 1980s also pictured! Any offers less than the asking price will not include items 2. All this stuff is rare as hen's teeth in 2019! Here is what the press said about this Stumpjumper 25th made in very limited numbers back in 2007. There arent many mountain bikes with a history as long as the Specialized Stumpjumper.It was launched in 1982 and was the first complete production mountain bike everything before then had been either custom or at least built to order, and actually making a bike involved a good deal of parts sourcing and light bodging. In the years since then, the Stumpjumper name has been attached to a remarkable array of steel, metal matrix composite, aluminium and carbon fibre frames in both hardtail and full suspension flavours.
The current Stumpjumper FSR is very much at the pointy end of MTB technology, with its carbon fibre frame, 120mm suspension travel, inertia-valve rear shock and so on and so forth. Which means that about the only things it has in common with the original Stumpjumper are the name and the presence of two wheels. And if youve ever wondered what that very first Stumpy would have been like to ride, nows your chance to find out.
To celebrate the Stumpjumpers 25th birthday, the company has launched a limited-edition retro Specialized Stumpjumper of that 1982 pioneer. The spec is a slightly curious mix of ancient and modern. The Tange chromoly frame is built to the original Stumpy geometry (which essentially means short at the front, long at the back and relaxed angles at both ends) and is fitted with a suitably retro tapered, curved rigid fork with an investment cast crown and 1in threaded steerer. Plugged into the top of that is a one-piece bullmoose steel bar/stem.
Further period touches include the flared foam grips, motorcycle-style four-finger brake levers pulling cantilever brakes, fluted seatpost and proper Ground Control tyres. The transmission is distinctly 21st century, though. Shimano Deore XT outboard-bearing cranks turn a Shimano HG chain and nine-speed cassette. The front mech is also XT, while the rear derailleur and shifters are SRAMs cutting-edge carbon fibre X. Yes, they look a bit incongruous, but then supplies of decent-quality five-speed screw-on freewheels, square-taper cranks and friction thumbshifters are best described as limited.The item "RARE retro Specialized Stumpjumper Limited Edition Collection CT6 or LD3 1of250" is in sale since Thursday, September 5, 2019.
