I have a 14" Specialized Rockhopper Sport that I think is a womens, based on the colour scheme shown in the 1990 catalogue in the archive. It is sort of greeny/turquoise with Pinky-purple decals. However mine has the brake beneath the chainstays, which is not the case in the catalogue - maybe different spec for uk as catalogue is germanic?
The smallest size used a chainstay-mounted U-brake. Larger sizes came with a seatstay-mounted cantilever.
Currently trying to fund a new new build and wondered if the old beauty is likely to be worth anything? Any ideas - I know Spesh of this era is reasonably collectable?
The last few early nineties Rockhoppers I've seen sold on eBay have struggled to clear £50. A very nice one might get up around the £100 mark.
Have a look here:
Calmes dans le demi-jour
Que les branches hautes font,
Pénétrons bien notre amour
De ce silence profond.
