Very nice, always liked those old Stumpys. If it's a 17" and doesnt fit let me know

Cool, that's the frame my roommate had senior year of college. Of course, it was only about a year or two old then!
I like the old Shimano pedals, actually. I now have them on four bikes (one of which is dissassembled at the moment) - three sets of XT and one Deore.
You can tell if the levers are XT by the code on them - if it's M-7xx, then it's XT as far as I know. First Flight bikes has a great list of older, higher-end Shimano components:
Yup. BL-M733.cegrover said:You can tell if the levers are XT by the code on them - if it's M-7xx, then it's XT as far as I know.
They've got a chart with stumpjumpers too, but this one's not on it. It's a team frame, stamped 91xxx on the bb, and came with XC pro parts, but it's either purple or black pearl, and it's not listed. I saw a '92 catalog today, and only the s-works frame was chromo that year. My lbs has a '92 s-works hanging on the wall, and the owner claims to have a '92 Ultimate. I'll try to get him to break it out for some pictures.cegrover said:First Flight bikes has a great list of older, higher-end Shimano components:
I've got the wheels you want (XT, RM-20), in nice shape with a nice original XT freewheel. You'd have to come up with a very good 7 speed wheelset, good casette and the right bottom-pull front derailleur (I'll measure) and pay shipping both ways to get them.cegrover said:VINTAGE WHEELSET WANTED: 6-SPD XT M730 or similar hubs. Araya RM-17 or RM-20 or similar rims.
It will probably be my main bike for a while. The only thing keeping me from riding that D'back all the time was the 1:1 granny. This is 24:28.Rumpfy said:You're going to ride it a lot right?
There are a few spots that have been touched up with my custom paint matching repair system:rutteger said:Looks great, especially with the paint in such good condition.
Glad it's going to see some action.

I still like the pedals, but I shinburgered with one this morning on my DB Axis. Oh well, my shin would be much worse off if it'd been those pinned platform pedals on my V-Link. Then again, perhaps my foot wouldn't have slipped off...maybe I need to put some clips and straps back on...cegrover said:I like the old Shimano pedals, actually.
