    Hardcore seems built for technical singletrack riding. Tall bb and stiff, direct connection btween front end and BB. Sharp handling at slow speeds.

    They don't seem to come up too often, which is somewhat surprising since he seems to have made a couple hundred a year for almost 6-7 years.

    Philippe,
    Your collection is off the charts. Each and every bike is damn near, if not, perfect. Care to share a list? That way we can request pics.
    Zip ties? Not on my bike!

    Want:
    650B rims or wheel set. 80's vintage 32 or 36 x 135mm

    Hi Grove Innovation Owners!

    I thought I'd share my Hardcore on here.

    Back in 1996 my sister went to Penn State main campus. While visiting her I stopped at The Bicycle Shop. That is where I got the frame with matching bottle cage, fork, and handle bar/stem. The frame is a small. It was a wall hanging. I was told it was built, but then taken for parts. The front fork is a Grove Assault fork. They weren't sure of where and if the bike came with the Hardcore fork. I built the bike with 21 spd. XT at the time. A decade later I thought the horizontal drops were being wasted without it being a single speed. Let me know what you think.

    Salut oneschnark, I am always amazed and appreciative of your dedication and enthusiasm towards Grove for many years now, and the quality and attention to detail towards your bike builds. But what planted the seed, to grow and flourish into this commitment for a brand less known?

    Just a guess, but I’m thinking none of those Grove frames ever broke. Very “tough” looking.

    Enjoying all the bikes posted, great work everyone!
