This is JohnR’s Stumpjumper which he uses to great effect, mainly on the climbs!
I think this bike is vintage rather than retro. I bought it online from Wiggle about 1999 and looking over the components I realise that other than the frame, the only thing I haven’t replaced yet is the seat post clamp.
I see that Hope have some rather bling blue quick release ones…
Colour-wise, it reminds me a bit of On-one’s ‘that blue’ 456.
