My bike does not have a thread. It does not have expensive parts. But it has showed up for work every time I needed it for the past twenty six years, rain or shine. It does its thankless task, and then back to the garage with little to no maintenance. Beer runs, late night dashes, trails, urban bashing, kid hauling, commuting, this is what Blue Collar is to me. I don't expect my Blue Collar bike to get any votes, and it won't care either, it is blue collar. Here it is, MattiThundrrr's 93 or 94 Specialized HardRock, the RockRat:

PS RepackRider, a Mountain Bike legend, has a thread on MTBR dot com regarding his take on blue collar bikes. A worthy read.

Have to agree that RockRat has nailed (what I took to be) the spirit of this theme perfectly. Fire Mountain is a lovely example too. Tempted to throw up an old Mongoose that'll upset almost everyone and (hopefully) get no votes :lol:
