Other than my own thats the only one I have ever seen in this colour scheme.
Does it fit well with the post stuck or will you have to free it off?

To be honest, it's too low. I'm still figuring out how to solve this problem. I will try some WD40. Maybe I have to take out the bracket, then turn the bike upside down and fill the seatpost with WD40 ... :?

Cheers,
Will

I have exactly the same bike with the same colors EXCEPT that I'm pretty sure my bike is a 1991 Rockhopper Comp.
I bought the bike in 1992 but it was on sale because it was the last year's model.
Now I'm a bit confused if my bike is actually from 1992. Is there anyway how I can find out?

I have one just the same! Bought it brand new, my first mountainbike, and did lots of riding in the Grampians for a few years. I still use it as a utility bike, with Schwalbe Marathon tyres for the road and easy trails.

My bike frame is identical to the one on the photos in this thread. I'm pretty sure that Specialized only used that color once for its Rockhopper Comp model or at least not two years in a row and like I said, I was sure my Rockhopper is from 1991.
