    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.

    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.

    Here's a recent find from the local CL, an unkown year Hardrock Comp. Seems like late 80s to me. Seems to be 100% original, and might make a good spare bike for a bike-less female riding companion (like THAT will ever happen). I wish it were my size, as I have always liked this color combo.

    It's my old bike! Well, same year, model and paint job, anyway. I put a lot of miles on one of those in college and, oddly, let it go in a garage sale about one year before I started getting into VRC bikes. Naturally, I wish I hadn't sold it, but at least I got decent money for it...

    Hey, that looks familiar, 251...

    My 91 M2...



    It's more or less how I received it...I suppose very little of the components are original (except the tires!)

    I finally gave away my 92 Hard Rock this week...

    But I think my neighbor is about to give me another one. Oh well! (It's all black so I can pretend it's Rumpfy's Epic!)

    My officially decomissioned and warrantied 1996 Stumpy 96S4M14524 and our 1995ish Deja Tu tandem (mgf for Specialized by American)... a wedding present from my fellow LBS employees just about 12 years ago... still going strong (us and the bike) and has always ranked as the best gift we got!

    I'm sorry if my 2000 Rockhopper A1 FSR is too new for this thread, but it's too old to mention anywhere else.

    I bought this for $240 and then added Ergon grips and a WTB saddle to make it more comfortable. Then I added Slime thorn-resistant tubes and Maxxis Hookworm 26 by 2.5 tires, which made it virtually silent on the street, provided superb grip on fast cornering, and after almost two years and several thousand miles I have never had a puncture.

    It may be dated, but for what I do, it's a great bike for the street and local parks.

    You know, speaking of the Deja Tu...I take it this is one of them too... Unfortunately I wasn't on the ride with my friend where he snapped this photo. I would have loved to have gotten a shot of it next to my matching Stumpjumper!

    Ukai EX-17 rims, Shimano XT Parallax hubs, and Continental tires.

    Oh, and Huffy pedals.

    Are tires supposed to crunch like snow, even when there isn't any snow?

    I found a picture of my first mountain bike last night. This lowly Rockhopper Comp of 88/89 vintage is what got me hooked on riding. And what a perfect companion, fit like a glove, handled like a dream, and selfish me, I never gave the courtesy of proper maintenance or a wash for that matter. I used her for about 3 years while living in Flagstaff, and we rode down pretty much every trail in the Fat Tire guide. Upon graduation, I killed her off by disassembling completely and ultimately lost interest in repainting. So she sat in a cardboard box in my roomates garage as I left the state. Where are you now?

    The picture is circa '93.

    This is my 1992 RockHopper Comp. I have had it since it was new. I also have another 1992 frame as well as a 1989(?) that I want to get built up sooner or later. I'm not sure where the line is on what is or isn't VRC, but since there are much newer bikes in this thread I guess I'm alright.

    93 RH Sport. Changed the bar (probably will switch it out to an Origin8 Gary), wheels (from my old 97 S-Works), and saddle. Tires are temporary. I've been looking for green ones like rupps5 posted, but no luck. Also looking for a flatter stem. Would a road threaded stem be ok to use?

    That was my (second) real mountain bike. Same year, same color, next size up. Good little bike.
    Too bad its missing the original Ground Control tires. Super clean though!

    first mountain bike

    This is my 92-93 Rockhopper comp. Originally bought in '90 (think that bike was white) broke the frame. Took it back to my lbs where my buddy worked. Traded him a case of imports for the labor, Specialized covered the frame under warranty (they did get somewhat pissy about the non-stock forks, but I bent those 'bout a year before) I've ridden this bike for approx 8,000 miles. Converted it to an urban assault bike a couple of years ago. Just replaced this week w/Giant 29er

    Heres a picture of my 1988 Stumpjumper. It has all of the original Shimano Deore XT parts. I wife's friend had it laying around the house and needed to find a home for it. I wish she did not have it painted, but for free, I can't complain.
    I had the exact bike back in the day, except mine was a 19.5" instead of the 17.5" that is pictured

    I took more pics of my 95' Stumpy Commuter with some of its new hop-ups.
    I added a 90mm Ritchey Pro Stem, Easton Monkey Lite Carbon Bars, Vuelta Zero Lite Wheels, Wings suspension springs.

    I absolutely love this bike and is perfect for my commute. I have yet to try it on the trails due to the poor weather here in San Diego (WTF Rain!!!) but im sure it can handle them no probs. The Wings suspension springs are a great and since rebuilding the dampener I dont think I'll be replacing the shock for a while.

    Those Zerolite's look real heavy, not so sure I would call that a upgrade.

    Total added weight to the bike after I added the Zerolites and the Street tires was 181 grams and I think most of that weight came from the tires. Brand new wheels for $80 vs 15year old OE wheels = upgrade to me!

    I really just use this for commuting to work and total cost of the bike with 'upgrades' cost me less than $250.

    This is my Specialized S-Works steel bike...
    The geometry and the feel of this bike are just perfect for me. It's by far the best bike i have ever ridden.

    The setup with the single chainring in the front and the dropbar with the sti unit are great for my local riding needs. Since the area around me is as flat as a pancake (Utrecht, the Netherlands) i do not need 24 gears. And most of my riding is done on the road anyway since the closest by area for me to "mountain" bike is almost a 40 minute car ride away.

    The bike is getting used as often as possible although now everything is covered by snow and it's far to slippery to cycle...

    I just stripped the crappy spray paint off an 88 hardrock using citrustrip remover . Its not strong enough usually to pull factory baked paint but rattle can paint rubs right off.

    My tank!

    This is my 1997 Stumpjumper Comp. All original parts except the for seat post, bars and stem, they were changed over purely for the look of the black replacement parts. New fork too. This bike is a tank and has never failed me. That's what you get when you buy Specialized!

    Yes. Spec is great . I have an OG 83' Stump ,all factory stock in mint condish . Also an 02' Stump with is my daily rider with a Bionx e-kit attached . The 'metal matrix' is a great improvement ,making the stumps bullet proof . I've logged 1000's of ruff commute miles on her and she shows no sign of fatigue .(knocks on wood Seems I can't post pics yet since I'm a newb on the forum . o well . Soon

    Or climb well either. I bought that as a complete bike. Every part except the frame and fork had the original owners name on it. They used some kind of metal scribe. So I sold off everything except what you see pictured. I just picked up a set of NOS Mountech derailleurs. Now, I need shifters and a crankset. Hopefully, I'll get it back together some day. It's the perfect size for my wife.
