I've been asked to build up a hardtail for my mate Ron's girlfriend on a tight budget... so I'm looking for a 15" alloy Hardrock / Rockhopper or WHY? So I think that means post '96? I think '98 was the last steel year.

Must have a 1 1/8" headtube and be v-brake compatible, and ideally have seatpost included... or be a COMPLETE BIKE in need of a slight fettle.

Others brands considered, but I trust these frames having built up and ridden a fair few over the years!

Sounds good, I'd like...

a price for the frame including headset, forks, stem, ahead spacers, top cap, seatpost and clamp

AND

a price for the complete bike

...please. If the prices are within my friend's budget I'd like a couple of photos too! Appreciate it thanks!

www.senditnow.com would be my suggestion for postage as they only charge about £12 and they will collect it from your address so long as you box it up (they are Parcelforce but they bypass the PO and just use online booking, I've used them half a dozen times and they've never let me down)

Cheers, Al :D

I've got a hardrock frame in 15" flavour, bright red, nice condition. It's the 2004 model, which was very overbuilt for it's spec! Strong as hell.

I know it well! I had an '05 HR Pro which they downgraded the next year as apparently it was so well spec'ed and beefily framed that not many buyers saw the point in low-end Rockhopper!

Are you selling the complete bike or just frameset? Looks a nice build in the pic :)

Just the frame, but I've got a fair few bits to go with it.

Got a BB and cranks (no chainrings) got the seatpost, seat clamp, handlebars and the stem.
