“It’s not just a new bicycle, it’s a whole new sport”
The first production mountain bike, made by Specialized: the Stumpjumper.
This example is probably not the very earliest, perhaps made in 1983, but it’s the most original we’ve ever seen. It’s pretty much as it left the shop – it may even have its original inner tubes! All correct specification: 18″ lugged steel frame, Tomaselli brake levers, Shimano ‘Deer Head’ derailleurs and as many Specialized branded components as Mike Sinyard could get on: saddle, handlebars, chainset, headset, bottlecage, tyres and rims. SR fluted seatpost, Shimano brakes (original cables) and Shimano XT pedals, Sachs chain. And that stem…Complete and unrestored, this is a piece of cycling history.
Book a Cycling Assessment
You can visit us any time during opening hours, but only through an appointments system can we be sure that the specialist able to help you most will be available, and that the ideal demo cycles are at base at that time. Appointments mean we can give you the full support and time you need to try a wider selection of cycles and possible adaptations.
Finding Your Cycle...
All kinds of bikes for all kinds of people. That’s our thinking at Get Cycling, and we demonstrate, adapt and supply what is probably the world’s widest range of specialised cycles. We are a not-for-profit, operating nationally, and promoting diversity in cycle design and supply. We believe that our new and refurbished cycles take pedal-power into new realms of delight.
We have child-carrying options, cargo cycles, tandems, adapted cycles for special needs, folding bikes, fun bikes, tricycles, companion cycles, multi-seaters, recumbents and much more. If we don’t have a new model of what you need then we may well have a refurbished version. In any case, please talk to us so that we can check that the cycle you have in mind is right for you.
