Antique o' the Week

1983 Specialized Stumpjumper BarSpecialized has made some really cool components and bikes over the years. I have touched on in past "Antique of the Weeks" how they started out as a component manufacturer and became one of the biggest bicycle manufacturers in the world. They did this because they were able to produce the first "mass market" mountain bike, the Stumpjumper in 1981. Fast forward to 1983 and the Stumpjumper has a few refinements and one of them is this wicked rare Specialized X-1+2 handlebar and matching dual clamp quill stem. In the early 80's people had no idea how tough they needed to make mountain bike parts and so most stuff was overbuilt and heavy. Most handlebars were made of heavy steel and some early bikes just used motorcycle parts. These beautiful handlebars and stem are made of heat-treated aluminum and were way lighter than anything else out on the market. There is a real possibility that these are the first Alloy "off road" bar.They still WAY overbuilt the handlebar by giving it a 4mm wall thickness, but this just makes for a nice, stiff and confidence inspiring cockpit. The dual clamp moto inspired stem really makes sure that it has a death grip on that bar, so you can "Jump Stumps" with the knowledge that your handlebar will be there when you land.If you have a vintage Stumpjumper build in need of a period correct handlebar and stem, or are looking to build a bike around these sweet pieces of history, we got them here at the Portland Gear Hub."IT'S NOT JUST A NEW BICYCLE, IT'S A WHOLE NEW SPORT" -Specialized
