    It's that big ego that gets things done, no matter what you do for a living.

    Wow, cool thread. I'm a newb but I felt I need to post my ride. I've had this since 98. I think it's a 96 or 97. Bought it from a specialized sponsored rider. #62 of 100 of these.

    Well, never mind. I guess I need more posts to be able to upload pics. You all,will have to,wait.

    Diggin the thread though.

    Custom Rockhopper

    Here are pics of a Rockhopper I built as a brother to a special Land-Rover I was involved in creating. All tubing work is done in .035 seamless hydraulic tubing, silver brazed in place. Powder coat paint matches Land-Rover 101FC. Wood is .375 thick laminated bamboo. Other than tube work and obvious bolt-on parts the 'Hopper' is stock and still very light.Official Specialized Picture Thread-fugly-jr-pro-pics-006.jpg

    Nice work. Seems like maybe a mismatch to a Rockhopper and its low end components.

    Why do the bar ends point downward?

    Let's see the matching Land Rover.

    Cool racks, nice work but the Rover will make more heads turn around here.
    Zip ties? Not on my bike!

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

    I have to ask, was the bike ever ridden? Not just off road, but ever? I don't see any signs of wear or little nicks and scrapes that all bikes eventually get from normal riding, especially that old.
    Regardless, it looks like a great street cruiser!

    Wow. Clean. Swap the pedals and tires and I would give it two thumbs up.

    the pedals and tires are the only things i did swap!!
    this is going to be my "sunday driver"...flame me, but i doubt it'll ever see dirt.
    it's just too clean and it too good of shape to have my clumsy ass fall into a rock garden on it.
    the 1.95 kwests are awesome to cruise around on, and i'm not much for clipless pedals...i was going to go with some MKS pedals, but they always cut into my feet, it feels like.
    the bike was ridden, but very lightly from what i can tell....i acquired it from a gentleman in his 70's that bought it brand new in 1992.

    Johnny the Boy,

    You hate the Bronze, don't you?

    No shame in using it as a road cruiser! That's what my 1984 and 1985 Stumpjumpers are. Some vintage bikes need to be protected from the hazards of the trails. Finding replacement parts can be a real problem if they get broken. That has to be the cleanest bike on the forum, ride it in good health!

    the saddle was on it when i acquired the stumpy....the original owner swapped it out upon purchasing the bike new. i did add the arundel ss cages though...i think they complement the bike well!

    Love the 92 stumpy comp. I've just obtained what I believe is the same frame. Unfortunately the two bikes have lived contrasting lives and rust has taken my frame.

    well, i did 28mi on this beauty sunday afternoon and i gotta say....it has far exceeded my expectations. super smooth, and quite nimble...the only thing slowing the bike down was me!!
    found out the flite was just too narrow for my ass, so i tossed a b17 on it, and all is well. swapped out that narrow flat bar for a wider riser, as well and some different platforms. think i'm finished now!

    My 1993 Rockhopper Sport has been sitting in the garage for 20 years. My wife just got a bike and wants to go out riding together, plus we want to do something different to cross train with our running. When I originally got the Rockhopper I only rode it a few times and then it sat in the garage as I got busy with work, traveling, and other stuff. It was dusty with a few scuffs from getting moved around a lot but otherwise in great shape. Today I got some new tires, cleaned everything up and took it for a test drive. I'm looking forward to getting out more with this bike.

    1991 Rockhopper

    Nice color on this. It was a little beat up when I got it. Stripped it, cleaned it and purpled it. Built it as a 1X9 with SRAM X7. In looking at the seatpost, might be a bit small for me.
