Rockhopper was the blueprint that everyone else followed... Nice bike, nice build. I have an 89 (i think) with really small frame for the missus... She loves it. And I love it coz it has a u-brake...

Thanks 8)

Regarding the thumbies: I like to keep my hands down when I hold the handlebars. Like a zombie.... That's why everything is downwards. I do not know if this is the best position for the thumbies. The last time I've used these is about 22 years ago... :lol:

I've got some new action pics... One ride and it has allready lost two tyres (both too dry). I've got some work on this one, but I still love the colours... :)

Cheers,
Will
