    I've seen the light.....

    I finally built my old Specialized Rockhopper into a SS beast. The only thing left to do is choose a rear cog. Temporarily, I have left a nine speed cassette on to choose between 21t or 18t cogs.

    Here are a few pics of my "new" old friend.


    Currently on the 21t cog.


    Using the old Specialized Cranks for now....thinking of using my in the box, dust covered, XTR 952's but I would need a new spider....?






    Now for the bummer, I can't ride the damn thing until mid to late May. That's when the doc thinks I can stop physical therapy for my SOC carnage.

    What year is that, an '00? My '01 Hardrock has the same graphic layout on it, but it's blue and white. I just converted it recently, here's a link to the thread with some pictures:

    Not sure if our chainstay lengths are equal, but I'm having good luck running a 34/18 ratio, with my Singleator in push-up mode also. It looks almost exactly like what you have in the picture.

    Also, it looks like you have the little Jagwire cable holders for your fully lined rear brake line...I used those before I finished up my conversion last week. I drilled out the stops when I had the frame torn down. That's working out well so far.

    Very nice looking conversion, that's a pretty bike.

    Good lookin'! I hate to see you carry all that extra cassette weight around with you, though. Especially when you can score a Novatec BMX cog for around $3 at your LBS. But then, by the time you're out of PT you'll be there, right?

    Welcome to the dark side, in spite of seeing the light.
