I have a 1985 Stumpjumper That I still ride every now and then. It works great even though back then shocks, disc brakes, 29 inch wheels, etc.. hadn’t even been invented yet! I’ve found that the frame geometry is still so good that I can climb like a demon, even compared to my newer full suspension bike. I agree that keeping it around for your friends to use, or as a replacement when your other bike is in the shop is a great idea. If you have some $$$ burning a hole in your pocket, I’d spend it on a newer bike rather than upgrading the old one, but if not, just have fun riding it until it’s worn out! 😃
