I have an extensive selection of bikes

'88 Puegeot Scorpion 531
'92 Specilaized Hardrock
'93 Marin Bear Valley
'93 Specialized Stumpjumper
'94 GT Zaskar LE
'94 Trek 820
'97 Cannonadale Super V 1000 Freeride
'97 Cannondale M900

But my daily rider and my most loved is a '95 Univega Alpina 508 I love the way it looks, just so basic and it works perfectly

I gave it away once and had it given back again!

Now gets cleaned once a week and lives in the house:-)

My new commuter, Specialized Crossroads '94.


I was looking at the components on your bike and they just placed it earlier for me so I googled for Speccy catalogues workin back from '94

- All of which took me right here to good 'ole Retrobike:-)

Specialized catalogue '92 Seems to show your EXACT bike on Page 20

Looks like it's two years older than you thought?

Here's what I've been using during the winter as a bit of a commuter and delivery type thing...The moustache(ish) bars were pinched from one of our freight bikes at work - they ain't pretty but they're very comfy to use on the move. Drivetrain is a 1x8 cobbled together with more old freight bike bits and a huge pace downhill chainring :)
