    What year is my Rockhopper?

    Can anyone help me determine the year of my Specialized Rockhopper I just picked up? All Diacomp/Shimano. I have the serial number as well if there is a database.

    Nice set-up on that bike, did you pay for a bike fitting?

    I think your bike is a 1995 Rockhopper A1.
    5 is the old new black; 6 is the new new black...

    15yard penalty, unnecessary roughness.

    Funny there's no serial number database for Rockhoppers. Maybe someone should start one. There can't be that many out there, right?

    i think a suspension seatpost would look at home on that bike.

    another good upgrade would be grip shift x rays.

    What's not to like? Solid bike, not too different from my Rockhopper FS ('98 or '99) with "nitanium" tubing, it rides a lot like steel. yours is aluminum. ride it the way it is, put some miles on it, adjust it so it feels right. ride the bike it will last a long time, enjoy!
