I'm going to be building an e-bike out of this and so I wanted something solid and for cheap. So I picked up a vintage looking Specialized Rockhopper with CrMo frame. Comfy seat, rear wheel is bent but the front one is good (I will be replacing the rear wheel with an electric hub motor wheel). Frame needs to be sanded and repainted.
Now, my main question is what can I do to improve this ride. A front wheel with disc brakes and some improved shifting items would be nice, if not a must. Any chance of getting a front shock w/ disc brake replacement for this model?
I'm searching for specs on it now. Its a medium, 26x2in wheels, and that's all I know. How would I fit modern parts to it. Hope I can
