I spotted an early 80s [corrected: 90's] Specialized Rockhopper that may fit me. I'm about to head out to inspect it. It appears to have those long chain stays of early MTB offerings. But the frame doesn't look to be lugged, but TIG-welded.
It isn't complete. OEM drivetrain and possibly wheels aren't there. May be newer wheels.
But the price is right.
How did the Rockhopper fall in the Specialized line up? It's below the Stumpjumper...but was it very low on the ladder?
Worth the effort?
