    It just shocked me to see something so modern and skinny on these sacred pages. Yours could be the first modern road bike ever posted here...

    I personally ride them. In fact my legs are aching from our local crit held last night.

    I always wanted a RockCombo and got this '89 awhile back, a very nice riding bike, alittle heavy but fun. It was alittle big so it went the Ebay way

    Damn. I was second from calling the guy and jumping in my car from the Springs.

    Hopefully this wont derail the thread too much, but in the past couple weeks I've noticed a couple Colorado VRC folk. I'm thinking a Colorado vintage gathering is in order. Fruita?

    Not a bad idea. Some years back I considered going to the annual Yeti Tribe meet in Snowmass, when people were still showing up on rigid Yeti bikes, but I see now that the flavor has changed. Not sure I could make it to the western slope these days. I'll refrain from posting a Yeti photo in the Specialized thread.

    I own a Stumpjumper with 24" wheels that's all original and a first year M2 frame.

    Sinjin, did I see you on a Discovery Channel program about a rockclimber that had to use his adrenalin to lift a huge rock off of himself? (not many Sinjins I dont think)

    still unsure what to do with this. the finish is beat & it's sad to see something so exotic looking so trashed. may strip it & turn it into a minimalist urban thing (sacriledge, yeah).

    That would be one option. Seeing as this frame has Ti lugs it probably would be worth it to retore the finish or just build a rider out of it. I love the way these ride, waaaay smoother than a steel or aluminum frame. I'd just build it and enjoy it. You can use anything for a minimalist urban thing.

    Here's an '86 Rockhopper I picked up last year:



    And I couldn't resist picking up this Hardrock for a quick flip. It may not have been particularly vintage or collectible, but there could be no mistaking its "Big Red S" heritage. The guy who bought it couldn't have been happier.

    Hey Fillet...

    Yeah, that was me on Disco a few weeks ago. Pretty wild story, eh?

    National Geographic will be airing a longer and more detailed version about it April 29th at 7ET if you are interested. Even has some mountain biking in the show (at least, we shot it...who knows if it ended up on the cutting room floor...)

    Beautiful work Justin! Must have been nice to find that under your house. The only things I found under my house were an old car battery and a rusty lawn chair. That was indeed a good year for the Hardrock GS--That bike was put together real nice. It could have fooled a few people into mistaking it for a Stumpjumper.

    Well, if that is who I think it is, I don't think she was budging on the price, so he wouldn't have got it.
