    Ned Overend's Championship Rockhopper

    Nice little writeup on the 'entry level' bike that Ned won the National SS Championship with:

    Of course once you get past the frame and fork there's not many stock parts left, but it does show that the RH is a worthy upgrade platform. And having Ned as the engine helped a little, too.

    Rarely will the best rider lose if they aren't on the very best bike. He is one hell of a rider.

    That's what I'm talking about!
    The bike is nothing more then circles turning circles, It's the human motor that makes it elegant.

    I'm sure they'd give Ned any bike he wanted, so he could have had a Stumpjumper S-Works 29er singlespeed. Obviously, having him race a Rockhopper was a marketing thing. Still pretty cool though.
