Kids got some good grades and stayed out of trouble this year in school and I have been wanting to get off my butt and get in some better shape. I decided to surprise them with new bikes. Looking for some beginner trails.
Here are the bikes.
My youngest and his Specialized Hard Rock Disc
My oldest and his Specialized RockHopper Comp Disc
Had this bike for 15 years.
I am jealous. Looks like I am the only one left with V-brakes and not disks.
Have replaced all components once or twice, except bottom bracket and front wheel.
That's funny. I have that same bike (bought new in 1996). It has been converted to singlespeed and I still ride it every now and then, but the Mary is my primary ride. Original wheels, and before the SS conversion I was running all the original shifters, derailures, etc. Only difference from the pic below is that I swapped on the OE Mary cranks and BB when I upgraded those parts. Also, no v-brakes on this one either. Running some old school Magura hydraulic rim brakes.
Mine and my wife's bikes. Hand made from a bike shop in Vicenza Italy. Mine (red, white, green) Fox float shock, Shimano XT build package, wife's (gold) Fox TALAS with Shimano ST build package. Oh and in case you were wondering, the riding in nothern Italy is awesome!
Proving daily that I have gears for brains!
