Just saw this on the bay, appears to be mostly original and EXCELENT shape. (seller says a 1985 stumpy)

So many bikes, so little money *sighs*

It's most likely NOW going to be the seller.

Ahem, :nono:

Also, looks like an 84-ish Sport to me. 85 Team would be the real score. And, boy would I be pissed if someone outed it while I was waiting for the auction to end.

who would have ever thought to search such unique keywords as 'specialized' or 'stumpjumper'? i'll bet one guy had it in the bag until this thread. jeez, outed with only eight days to go! i hate when that happens!!:madmax:

Doesn't' matter. It's the law in these parts.

Actually I think I went pretty easy considering the dressing down I've seen others receive. Heck, even Stan would have given the :nono:

;)

Edit: Personally, I don't see it going that strong.

Finding it was quite easy. I thought if anyone here didnt know about it they'ed a wished they had, was only trying to be helpful.

On the other hand, even if I hadnt posted anyone who knows what that bike is is going to bid high on it anyway I would imagin.

and why is it so important to you to share that speculation with the rest of the world. why can't you wait until the auction is over? it's pretty well known how much these bikes usually fetch and this one seems to be no different to the ones before.

seems to be very difficult for some to accept the agreements made in this forum.

Hahaha, the light still ain't goin' on!

Do a vrc forum search on "outing" and you'll get the idea.

probably not...I don't see a big problem with eBay outings..eBay is so easy to search. CL is another matter, that takes a little work..:)

OK. Maybe not Stan. :rolleyes:

However, it has always been my understanding that outing of eBay or CL is not condoned in this forum. If the rule has changed let me know and I will start posting like AMF.

I don't think it should be done but I don't think it's that bigga deal. I don't "out" cause I'm selfish, I want the deals to myself. However, I HAVE scored off others "mis-deeds" ;)

this wasn't outed here but someone "leaked" the info to me :D ....Maguras with rear seatstay brace, Marz fork, nice wheelset.....The fork will be going on another bike and an Amp going back on :thumbsup:

Like I said, only trying to help you guys out, if you had a friend(s) wouldnt you try to help them out, this is a vintage bike and I believe the door outside says VRC on it - and I dont see any rules about posting pics and where I saw those pics, I think posting a link to the auction page might be a no-no but not pics or where I saw the pics be it ebay or one of 58,000,000 image results for bike google searches
