Specialized Rockhopper 1998 - Custom Build, SRAM Eagle NX Full group set.

Retro Newbie

Retro mountain bike from the late nineties. The frame is like new and has always been garaged. The bike has been rebuilt with brand new components.

The original components that were on the bike are being sold with the bike also except for the original wheels, tyres and handlebar. The original components are still in good working order.

I had the full SRAM Eagle NX group set installed on the bike recently, fitted by professional bike shop including new DUB bottom bracket.

Since fitting all the new components, the bike has been used once around the block, it rides brilliantly, handling is immense.

There is a 38t chainring on the front to accommodate smaller wheels so the bike is ideal for all types of terrain from muddy, rocky trails to tarmac commuting.

Free postage is available within the UK via a dedicated bike courier company.
