The Fat Tire Revolution - Redux

Here is my prize piece of nostalgia from the early days. The Specialized Stumpjumper Team , a limited edition bike and only available in an outlandish version of Barbie pink. I acquired this bike by literally flagging the owner down during his ride in the Santa Cruz mountains some 10 years ago
It needs a new saddle, a Deore XT thumb shifter and some proper Ground Control tires, but otherwise, it's all there and in amazing shape. Check out the Tommaselli moto brake levers, Biopace chainrings, and a Shimano Shark Fin. Most everything else is Specialized house brand parts, the Crankset, hubs, rims, headset. I need to go take this thing for a ride
