Tim Retired!

Thank you for your business.

We invented bib shorts as well

You'll notice this Specialized ad in recent issues of various Mountain Bike magazines touting the Stumpjumper's advanced technology, construction and abilities. Of course, that was 30 years ago.

As the Stumpjumper's designer I was asked to appear in the ad, so there I am beaming like a proud papa in my overalls and 'stash. Looking at this old ad I realized that we not only pioneered the mountain bike, but with techology borrowed from the world of industrial garments, we also pioneered the bib short.

Alberto Contador recently visited Specialized HQ and was noticed browsing the Specialized bicycle museum. The Stumpjumer to Alberto's left was made before the TdF winning wippersnapper was born.
