For my lady friend, a Giant Iguana...
According to my mad internet skillz, the code on the rear Sansin hub, "GH", means August, 1990; the "90" over "F" on the SR crankarms means June, 1990; and the seatpost, "I-90" means Sept., 1990. Although I initially had a feeling that the seatpost was not original. Maybe it is. The seat probably isn't(?) because it has a taint groove.
Do youz guyz suppose this is a '90? or 91? Drivetrain is Suntour XCM 3X7.
This is my special lady friend's first mountain bike and I think it's just perfect for our buttery-smooth, flowy singletrack that runs alongside the creek.
And for my new "beater bike"/commuter, a Spesh HardRock...
Shimano hubs and crank arm are coded "NH", August, 1989. But I think this is a 1990 model bike because of the Shimano GS 3X7 drivetrain. No?
People can hate on it because it's only a HardRock, but I like it. I've always liked the way these old Speshes feel. It's in purty dang good shape, sort of like a barn bike, but the front shifter doesn't go clicky-clicky.
