    I like that!

    I still have a 97 Stumpjumper - fully rigid, very simple, still rides really well and weighs naff all! It also NEVER breaks unlike my 2007 Stumpy...!

    you censored I hate you :D:wink:

    lovely looking bike. I'd offer you my eye teeth for it but I haven't got them anymore (spent them on my last bike)

    Beer in moderation ... is a waste of beer

    If riding an XC race bike is like touching the trail,
    then riding a rigid singlespeed is like licking it
    ... or being punched by it, depending on the day

    Cheers for the comments!

    Bit of a mish mash of components but will gradually upgrade and see if I can get a Disk Mount brazed onto the rear stay when it goes in few new paint.

    Tried out the forks and they seem plush enough. Definately notice the geometry change though through slower, technical stuff and climbs but the ETA 30mm lockout does a good job of bringing the geometry back down to normal. I guess this shows up it's age but for the rough stuff they work well enough.

    Put on some new rubber as well and they look pretty cool as well.
