I'm cross-posting this from the Specialized forum. I've restored my 96 Stumpjumper M2. I know that all my new parts aren't necessarily in the spirit of vintage/retro/classic, but since it is still seeing lots of use, I wanted it functionally up to date.

My M2 frame continues to kick butt, it won't break for anything. :D

How's the handling with that fork? Looks raked out a bit.
I does kick out the front wheel a bit. I was a little worried when I got it. Fortunately, the original Judy fork had the headtube at a steep 71 degrees. If you take the 1" = 1 degree estimate, it ends up around 69 degrees. I raced on this bike with the Zoke fork this past summer. My honest opinion is that it makes handling much more predictable. Corners carve a little better without needing to worry about washout, and the extra dowhill stability is great. It's weird looking down through the handlebar at the hub, but I prefer the 105mm fork. :thumbsup:
