It was my first, and it was stolen 3 years ago. Though I have had many bikes since, I still pine for it. Bullmoose bars, box crown fork and all. Anyone have any leads on how to replace a piece of my heart?

Just curious about the age or collectability of this fork.

I am looking for iformation on cyclepro mountain bikes.

   RE:MISC:   Vintage ATB web site posted by bruce bunten on 2/26/2003 at 12:11:10 AM
I picked up a Columbia ATB "Trailrunner" I have it working enough to ride with my son in the mornings, however the back rim is very bent, and had to tinker a lot to get rear gears to work. Other wise it's prity cool. I have tried doing some searchs but have not come up with anything. I am looking for information. Any history, I would also like to know what kind of rims it will take and shifter. If I do replace they do not have to be original stock. I just like it and want to ride. Thanks for any information.
The only numbers I have found are on the bottem of the peddles. "8 or B? " I can not tell. "82180200" these do not seem to match up to any other numbers to identify. Any help you can give on bike would be appreciated. bruce

i got this old specialized stumpjumper here. pretty sure its one of the original ones, from the pictures i've seen. its in fairly good shape, pretty much complete, except for the wheels and the left crank arm/ pedal. the front wheel is an old saturn rim, may be original, don't know. the bike is dark blue, and the serial# is M3H67956. i'd consider selling it, if any one's interested, but i would at least like to know what it's worth. any questions, e-mail me. thank you.

   RE:FOR SALE:   stumpjumper posted by Trevo on 10/11/2002 at 5:18:20 PM
Not really sure you've got anything really special there. Probably not really worth much What size is it? does it have canti bosses? Would you accept a trade for it? I got Bins of parts and a buncha scwhinn frames,and a Ross 700c signature frame.

   RE:RE:FOR SALE:   stumpjumper posted by steve on 10/13/2002 at 5:49:52 AM
20" frame with canti bosses. I'll trade for any muscle bikes, parts, etc.
