I think this is a 1998 RockHopper FS. See the catalogue, here: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/gallery2/v/M ... ogue+1998/. I've got one of the fully rigid 1998 ones, although the only original parts are the frame, forks and, er, headset top cap. As others have said, these 'nitanium' frames ride really well, and I completely get how it's giving more enjoyment than modern bikes. Definitely worth the time and effort to get it all working well.

Amazing! Thanks dude! Now feel a bit of a fraud being over the 1997 bracket!

Feel like I need to review the wheels now... not sure what the ones are but think they are off a saracen.
