Here is what I am working on currently, its about 1990 -1992, cant remember exactly when I bought it. Paint job is original I am am planning to keep it that way. I may however put V-brakes on it as I have lost the originals. Its a little humble compared to some of the bikes on here but i am planning to use this one.

humble is good. No nonsense, straightforward, simple.

Thinking back I think that the price when I bought it was £399 for the complete bike, it seemed like a fortune at the time.

Last year I spent twice that on a set of SRM cranks for my Triathlon bike.

Times ave changed!

If we are honest a Rockhopper will do practically everything you need a mtn bike to do. Thats a very nice, tidy example. Be nice to see it built up :)
