I like the way the oranges tyres match the ground!

Me and my dad bought them at the same time; the pervious post was his that he’s still got.

This was a photo of mine that I scanned.

Now that Rockhoper is how I remember my formative mtb years looking.

That's a proper retro bike. We need more of the whole build. Not stopping at Thumbshifters and the first SLR 2 finger brake levers, but instead turning the dial up to 11 and sticking a 'Local Motion' shoulder pad/ pocket on, or a 'Wonder' light bracket or a disc wheel held on with cable ties...

...more authentic BITD accesories on bikes.



:D :D :D

Those Zefal pumps! I think I still have some chewed plastic frame clamps lying around in my tool box now! :lol:

Actually this shows how we are not building what we used to have, rather we are building bikes with todays aesthectic rather than true replicas of yesteryear!

Nice bikes, good to see them.

Absolutely.



I've got some of those gnarled zefal mount clips in the garage. They ate themselves didn't they?

Yup I've got some of the zefal clips in the tool box.

Have no idea where the pump went though. :D

I ended hacking the disk off my back wheel with a big knife, it drove me bl**dy mad the noise it made!!!

Mind you I was an impatient teenager, (and ebay hadn't been invented). :wink:
