This Specialized is to be my all rounder, communter from time to time, fitness training bike (main purpose) and weekend warrior when the Bianchi is being fixed.
I wanted a Kona or Specialized because when I first started MTB'ing in early 2000's my first bike was a hardrock and my friends had either a Specialized or a Kona.
So purpose of this build is first to remain within the budget, keep it as light as possible, durable, as high spec as possible and a great fitness bike. (Prices do not include postage from costs)
Specialized Hardrock FS A1 including everything but wheels and cassette,
Wheels are Mavic, laced to Parralex hubs (Bin parts),
LX V brake set with levers,
On one suspension adjusted forks; from Retrobike,
XT RDM737 BIN PARTS.
Ritchey comp handlebars and stem; ebay.at,
STX 7 speed shifter BIN PARTS.
DMR chain guide; from Retrobike,
Single chainring bolts,
So I have just 27pound to spend, I will have to see what is within my budget as I want quite a few parts.
Pictures will be up soon.
