I've got this bike last Friday. I was looking for a donorbike, but this bike is completely original. And the story behind this bike made me decide to let it original.

It would be lovely to ride it.. :lol:

Cheers,
Will

These are lovely frames in my opinion, very responsive. I'd like another one day as a hack bike.

I just bought this exact same (even color) bike from a local second hand shop. I have it in for a tuneup but I'll put some 26X1.4 slicks on it and have it as my backup for commuting to my Trek hybrid. Steel is real. Maybe I could post some photos after I'm done converting it (although I don't want to hijack your thread.) Again, thanks for posting I couldn't decide on the age until now.

Here's my 1994 Rockhopper Comp that I use for commuting to and from work (80-100miles per week).Special note, I pulled the bottom bracket out and found that its a 73X110. I bought a Shimano UN55 73mmX 110mm as a replacement. The bb case/tube in the frame had slight surface rust but nothing that a little brillo didn't remove.

I had one of these for 10 years until it was stolen. Just bought a mint condition one used. I want to replace the headset to change the angle to more upright position for city riding. But, i can not figure out the stem size. It has rock shox and is threadless. Ideas?
