Well, the long and short of it is that my Wife rides a POS that no longer shifts, weighs probably over 40lbs and is an eyesore that I can no longer bear.

A few months ago I bought an 89-90 Rockhopper frame/fork and sat on it for a while. With her B-Day coming the end of October, I decided to have some fun and throw something together.

Mind you I used what I had 'lying' around, however I did buy some stuff....

Specs(so far):

89/90 Specialized Rockhopper frame/fork/stem 17.5"
Procraft 650mm riser bar
Crank Bros Iodine grips
SSP planned atm
DiaCompe Canti-Levers

LX Canti's
Shimano AirlineOne's w/ Schwalbe Marathons 1.75"
Exage 400 Cranks w/ 34/36t
El Cheapo chain tensioner


Poor pics so far(my old 10D)...

Yesterday:

This morning:

More pics to come....

If anyone wants to Karma anything, I need:

Pedals
Decent splash guards F+R
26.2/26.4 seatpost(my 26.2 fits in pretty easily so a 26.4 should be ok)
Any 'Specialized' or 'S' decals

Thanks.....

As it sits right now:

Swapped the Avid SD5's as I will be using them on my other project bike. Threw on a decent set of LX canti's I had lying around doing nothing, with some DiaCompe PC7 levers.

I soon thereafter realized that this frame has no rear canti-bridge.
I'll probably mockup something to hang from the seattube QR.

I'll have to make some spacers for the chainring. The chainline blows and i'm not putting in a new BB.
