This has the U-brake which I think puts it about 1988, I've got an 89 Rockhopper that has a triple butted frame, think this is the same(?), and for an old bike it's still a very good ride 8)

Thought I'd put this up as it looks to be in very good condition, much better than mine, and it's got those great blue/pink graphics :) ... it's bit yellow, but some people like that sort of thing :wink:

Very tempted, but I'd find it impaled in my chest the day it got delivered.

Tempted - it may be a nice bit of nostalgia and my parents don't live far away! I'm keeping an eye on it for sure.
