1992 Stumpjumper

I more or less wrapped up my 1992 Stumpjumper drop bar conversion just before Christmas. I plan on using this as a winter bike so I still need to install fenders. I am running 26 x 1.9 Continental top contact winter tires. They're pretty good for mixed pavement/snow, less good than studded tires when there is sufficient snow. But with tires, you have to pick your poison as there are always trade offs. The bike had some paint issues I had to deal with but was otherwise sound. I replaced the consumables, headset, rear cassette, cantilevers, seatpost and saddle, stem, bars, and shifters but the bike is otherwise original.
