I know this forum is about paring down our precious pedalling pals but when it looks perfect and it's a classic mountainbike design I prefer to let it be.
I'm so damn excited----I just found an almost perfect Specialized Stumpjumper M2----totally original and very close to showroom. I saw it at a sort of backyard bike dealer garage sale----it spoke to me but I initially drooled over it but said no-no---I've just bought a beautiful titanium racer a week ago----3 good bikes is enough. The guy asked if I wanted to buy it but I said definitely not but I think she's a real Beauty.
I went home and continued weight weenieing the Everti titanium----I thought about it and concluded that the KHS Montana Team and the Rocky Mountain Element Race were all the mountain bikes I would ever need.
--an evil thought came to mind ---if I buy it I can give the Montana Team to my great-niece---ok dammit---I'm 60
Anyway----the deed is done and she's going to stay stock and classic
I'll post pics when I can.
