When Will bought an old, beat up Rockhopper from the thrift store, most of us didn't have high hopes. It was the kind of thing that had been laying in a garage for 20 years. Unridable. Uncomfortable. But the paint job was its saving grace. Twenty-five years later and fuschia/pearlescent purple is right back in style.
A cheap 1X conversion, a new chromo fork and some killer Nitto handlebars and Will's got a really fun shred sled.
Will found this thing for $35. Pedals, chainring, bars and a new rear rim were all it took to get this Rockhopper looking and riding great. What a killer find! We especially love the Jandd Hurricane saddle bag.
