    Talk me out of buying this.

    I have a garage full of bikes, and don't need another one, but I found a Rockhopper Comp (89 I think) for $50.



    I'm thinking it would make for a fun fixed gear trail bike project. I'm introducing my 8 year old to mountain biking, so a fixed gear might help keep things interesting for me while he pokes along.

    Argh..you guys are no help. You know, I'll end up sinking several hundred dollars into this. I'm already thinking about which color powder coat would look best (the paint looks pretty ratched in the close ups.)

    Ok, I'll call the seller today during lunch.
